Hello and welcome! My name is Monique, and I am a clinical therapist. I am looking forward to meeting people where they are and becoming a small, but meaningful part of their journeys. I’ve been doing this work for a while now and I know the importance of research to finding an appropriate fit. My goal is to be of service and to help people that are looking to grow and heal. I have extensive training and experience in evidence-based modalities such as CBT and trauma-informed care. I have worked with several populations, including but not limited to; veterans, college students, people who struggle with addiction, couples, families, people struggling with marginalized identities as well as those looking to improve their quality of life, by way of personal growth, or trauma resolution. The approach that I employ is from a humanistic perspective. I understand the importance of respect and safety to the explorative process of being in therapy. CBT is utilized as a proven and effective way to treat a myriad of disorders, or simply to grow in perspective as an individual or as a member of a family unit/romantic partnership. I wish you only the best on your journey to wellness, even if our paths do not cross, best of luck. If you are interested in the services that I provide, please do not hesitate to reach out and start the process. I hope to hear from you soon.

Hello, I'm Dr. Karp. I'm glad to communicate with you. Seeking therapy can feel scary, of course, but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal, grow and get stronger. Therapy is all about you, helping you become the person you want to be, happier, more joyful, more satisfied, and/or more able to love and feel loved. To help you get there, you must find a therapist who will listen to your unique concerns, even as they change, clarify, and grow throughout the therapy. Everyone is different, even if they have similar symptoms. I trained a lot of beginning therapists, so let me tell you what therapy should not be. Therapy should not be done robotically. I hear that happening a lot these days from people referred to me. It should not be the therapist just sitting there letting you talk, nor should it be the same as chatting with a buddy. Therapists need to work to earn our money just like everyone else. Therapists should agree with you on your treatment goals, and then apply proven techniques to help you reach those goals as quickly as possible, but also flexibly adjust the techniques to meet the needs of each unique individual client. I will do those things. Finally, therapy should not be the therapist talking mostly about himself or herself, meeting his or her own needs in the therapy. I've heard about that happening far too often as well.

Hi, I'm Dr. Alysha! Are you ready to Empower your Mental Health? By creating a safe place for processing and expression, I support persons on their unique healing journey to strengthen authenticity and resiliency. My overall approach uses psychodynamic talk therapy, offering space to those wanting to explore new perspectives, reframes, and change. When we internalize or suppress our emotions and experiences of adversity, we may be faced with lasting emotional trauma that impacts our entire well-being. However there is power in validation and relatability and that is why I utilize a client-centered, strengths-based method, with consideration for relational, intersectional, and social justice contexts. I don’t consider myself an advice giver, but instead, I will collaborate with you to recognize your choices and help you make the best one for yourself. My objective is for you to feel empowered by reducing emotional burdens, developing coping strategies, identifying resources, and enhancing your strengths. You will be treated with respectful, objective, non-biased assistance. I believe that with the right amount of support, guidance, and compassion, our capabilities are endless. **Please note Couples Therapy is Cash Only at $200 per session. Individual cash sessions are $150**

I have been practicing as a psychotherapist for over 10 years. My Master’s in Social Work focused on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality and how our different life experiences shape how we navigate our surroundings. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a veteran of the United States Armed Forces, some of my approaches to helping my clients identify their challenges and barriers to their identified problem starts with a person-centered and solution-focused approach to therapy. I recognize a client's right to self-determination, and I want to empower clients I work with to collaboratively come up with their own obtainable short-term and or long-term plans and goals for the present and the future lives they want to live. Let’s further explore together how to use better the tools you’ve been working with and perhaps add additional tools to the toolbox or not.

My approach is solution focused. I am not primarily concerned with how or why your present challenge developed but will focus instead on helping you to find a way forward. I hope to elicit and reinforce your positive attributes and competencies and help you to access your inner strength. Your ability to change or improve your situation depends on your desire to do so and my job is to awaken that desire within you. The biggest challenge all of us face is negative thinking. This is a reflection of our own disappointment of what we see when we look inside ourselves. By improving our self-image through accentuating our positive qualities we begin to see the world in a more positive light. A sure way of feeling better about ourselves is to find something good in every other human being.

Life has shown up, and you might feel depressed, anxious, lonely, or angry. You could be struggling in your relationships. Are you using drugs or alcohol to cope with life? Do you have unresolved grief, trauma, or shame? Do you allow your emotions to control you? If you can relate to these questions, you’ve found the right place. You’ve taken the first step towards self-healing and transformation. For nine years, I have treated clients with depression, anxiety, relational issues, anger issues, addictions, PTSD, and other mental health diagnoses to make lasting positive changes. Having worked through many of life’s problems and experiences myself, I can empathize and relate to most issues and connect with almost anyone. Working together, we will assess your current situation, process your past, and establish objectives to accomplish your goals. Most issues we struggle with start with the relationship we have with ourselves. When we change ourselves, we solve our issues. My clients report they have experienced a revitalized relationship with themselves to resolve their current issues and to better navigate feelings, relationships & life’s challenges. In therapy, I provide a safe, caring, and nonjudgmental environment and use evidence-based therapies to help you meet your goals.

Hello! I am Dr. Efrain Zepeda. I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Social Worker. In the past 23 years of working as a mental health professional, one important lesson I have learned is that the most powerful therapeutic intervention is found in the interpersonal experience that occurs in the client-therapist relationship. Together we can analyze the past to co-create a new meaning to achieve healing. I strongly believe that therapy is not about labeling or judging, but rather about personal discovery.
