Hello! I’m Aida Valerio-Lerner. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who found my calling 11 years ago having discovered that I wanted to provide people with a therapeutic space to heal, grow, and ultimately transform. Are you going through a personal challenge or major life transition? Do you need a safe space to have your experiences affirmed and validated? Do you feel overwhelmed by your emotions and in need of support? Have you considered speaking to someone but are unsure of how to begin? Wherever you are in your journey, I want to congratulate you on exploring possibilities to receive help. Therapy, like anything new or unknown, can feel scary. When Wendy was learning how to fly in Peter Pan, her fear of “what if I fall?” was met with Peter’s response of “oh, darling, what if you fly?” Not only did she fly, but she also transformed! My therapeutic approach is gentle, warm, and trauma-informed to ensure your comfort every step of the way. I listen attentively and non-judgmentally, welcoming your authentic self. You can express yourself in English and/or Spanish as I am fluent in both languages. Together, we can overcome anything.

Hey there! My name is Kelly. In my practice, I provide compassionate care and support to individuals, couples, and families seeking therapy. I believe in the power of collaborative therapy and strive to create a nurturing and supportive environment where clients can embark on their journey to self-discovery and well-being.

I believe in the power of laughing and humor in sessions and love when clients are able to be fully themselves whether it's using TikToks to show how they're feeling, cursing like a sailor, or letting go of the mask they wear daily.

Hi, I'm Lindsay. Do you often feel overwhelmed, exhausted or like your emotions are out of your control? Are your relationships, self-care, health, work and family pulling you in a millions directions when you feel like you have nothing left to give? Are you struggling to adapt to the changes that a relationship or new parenthood have brought upon you? What about that inner voice that tells you that you aren't enough, you aren't doing it right, and everyone else has something figured out that you can't quite pin down? Maybe you are anticipating or in the throes of a difficult life transition, major loss, or reckoning with some element of your past that has resurfaced as panic, anxiety, distraction, irritability or shutting down. If so, you deserve a space to sort through it all. I practice from the perspective that the relationship that usually needs more time, attention and healing is the one we have with ourselves. Together, we can collaboratively work to identify areas of strength and imbalance, sources of stress, beliefs that hold you back, and strategies and insights to encourage you to stay grounded in the present.

I frequently work with survivors of child sexual abuse, as well as those struggling with issues related to self-esteem/self-worth, but have treated clients with many different conditions, the most common of which are listed below. *My practice is focused primarily on treating adults who identify as female as well as being a welcoming space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

You are struggling with anxious thoughts, low mood, irritability, the invisible load that is placed upon you. Maybe you’re feeling like not quite yourself— like you aren’t living your healthiest, happiest and most well functioning life. Maybe you’re also a mom and feel like you’re drowning or missing out on the happy moments you feel that you are supposed to have with your kids because of your mental health. I get it. It’s a really difficult struggle and you are not alone. I help women and moms that are struggling with anxiety, depression and perinatal mental health. I specialize in using an integrative therapy approach, meaning that I tailor what I do in each session to what is going to best suit you. It’s so important that you get what you truly need from therapy and I will be there to support whatever that looks Ike for you. I provide a safe and validating space for you to be authentically and unapologetically yourself. Starting counseling can be really overwhelming and it’s totally normal to feel anxious or scared. The fact that you’re here right now, looking for help, is the biggest step you can take. You deserve to live the life you want to live. In our sessions, I will meet you where you are and walk alongside you as we work through these things together. You don’t have to do this alone. Start where you are.

Hello, My name is Karenna Lang and I am a licensed master's level clinical therapist. I earned my graduate degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I also obtained a post graduate degree from the University of London. I am licensed to practice in the State of Michigan as well as the State of Connecticut. If you are facing challenges in your life and are considering therapy I am happy to assist. Many of us experience issues with anxiety, confidence, and self-esteem. Emotions, thoughts and behaviors can be very challenging. It is my goal to assist clients with understanding how these three components are interrelated and to assist clients with empowering themselves to achieve increased awareness, introspection and insight and gain a happier life. Are you faced with worry? Do you find yourself overthinking and experiencing racing thoughts? Perhaps you experience social anxiety. Are you facing a history of family trauma? Or perhaps, issues with communication and conflict in a relationship? Perhaps you are dealing with a stressful matter related to your career, or educational endeavors. Or, you may be dealing with identity issues and/or gender changes. These are just some of the examples of the topics I can address with you. My primary areas of interest include persons suffering from anxiety, persons with a history of family trauma, and individuals and couples experiencing problems with communication and conflicts. I also enjoy working with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. Whatever issues you may be facing, it is a courageous step to seek and obtain counseling services and I am happy to offer a friendly approach and a safe, confidential, respectful, and supportive environment.
