I believe that everyone has the tools they need to implement the changes they want. As a therapist, it is my job to help you access these tools through, providing new broader perspectives and understanding how contexts and perspectives may be limiting you. I practice under the theory that relationships work in systemic ways, meaning when one aspect of a relationship is not functioning as it should another aspect will suffer. Through collaborative discussion I will challenge you to broaden your perspective in relationships, allowing you to access your internal tools to implement the necessary changes. Sometimes life is just funny, during our sessions we will laugh, cry and we may even disagree all in an effort to reach our goals and or elevate symptoms. If you are willing to do the work together we can help you create change.

Hello and welcome. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. Reaching out to a “stranger” to enter your life is the hard part, my goal is to provide a safe environment where you can explore and enhance your strengths that will empower you to find strategies that support you through life’s challenges. Focus on allowing you to become the “captain” of your voyage in life and joining you in various parts of this journey. There are many times in our lives that for brief periods we just need some support and guidance around the challenges we face whether it is intrapersonal (within our own self) or interpersonal (with others), or just coping with changes that occur during our lifespan. Our goal is to empower your inner resources to live your authentic self in this journey of life. I encourage open communication and connection with those I work with. I utilize various modalities and fit the experience to each unique individual, couple or family. It is important that we utilize all aspects of our “selves”, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions.

Hi there! I'm Abbey. Do you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Maybe it feels like everything falls on you, or you need to have everything figured out. Or maybe you have no idea what you want, but you just know something is missing. That pressure alone can feel debilitating. If you're overwhelmed with responsibility, at a crossroads in your life, or you feel ready for a change (even if you don't know what that is), then I'm here to tell you that you're exactly where you're supposed to be. I’m passionate about helping women and highly sensitive individuals overcome anxiety to show up as their most confident and authentic selves. Whether you're struggling with relationship challenges, low self-worth, or processing trauma, I'm committed to supporting my clients on their journey to health, healing and happiness. My goal as a therapist is to make my clients feel seen, heard and understood so they can connect more deeply to their truth, find peace, and create the life they want.

Hi there! I'm Gily and I am glad you found me. Are you a mama feeling the invisible load of motherhood? Are you finding it hard to connect with your family and children because of burnout? Are you losing your cool too easily these days? Or are you a new mama feeling overwhelmed with life with a new baby? As a mother myself, I can say I’ve been on the other side of the motherhood trenches (and still am from time to time) and there’s nothing more isolating than navigating parenthood with limited support. I help mothers in all stages of their motherhood helping to regain joy and control back into their lives. Parenting is not easy, and together we can identify ways to overcome specific challenges and stressors. With my client-centered and nurturing approach, I'll provide you with a safe place, free from shame and judgment, for you to share your feelings. Whether you have a strong-willed child, suffer from depression or anxiety, carry most of the child-rearing tasks, or simply need someone to talk to, I'm here for you. Together we can get you to be the mother you want to be.

**Please Note: I require a free phone consultation to be sure that you are matched with the right therapist. During this call, you’ll be able to share some of your concerns, hopes, and expectations for therapy. Also note that the time that you select would be your same time every week. You are a driven and ambitious high achieving individual who finds yourself constantly overwhelmed and stressed. You feel like your mind is always racing, juggling multiple responsibilities, and struggling to find a work-life balance. You may also feel trapped sometimes, with the inability or hesitancy to say no. Whether it’s the weight of past traumas, the inability to stick to boundaries, or the demands of daily life, you end up getting lost in the chaos. There’s a fear of failure or disappointing yourself or others. You feel isolated or like an imposter. Many of us are unaware of how our upbringing is really walking around with us every day. Remember that you can become the person you have longed to be. Let's get you to start thriving! I empower you to understand your mind/body connection so that you can gain insight into the things that may not be serving you and how you can make those healthy/effective adjustments to your daily life. I help you to explore your past and how it’s impacting you in the present. We identify patterns/cycles, increase self-worth, and improve relationship dynamics.

Hi I am a LCMHC I have a holistic approach to helping clients work thru their grief and loss . It can be a loss of a love one thru gun violence.or sudden death like a heart attack or some other health issue .Loss of a relationship ,a divorce or a devastating medical diagnosis or a change of health can and does bring a lot of grief . Even being on an eating plan that changes our weight and brings up many feeling and emotions as we struggle to be successful. I have worked with those going thru the aging process which often means they cannot complete tasks and do things that they used to do resulting in a sense of loss But I have seen in my practice clients find a sense of purpose emerge as they experience moment to moment the myriad of feelings , sensations that are often associated with grief . Going thru a loss can be a very difficult time in one’s life and we often have a need to see a professional to help us navigate the rough terrain of grief . I have also seen it be thru grief and loss one finds their purpose. There is hope . . .

Hello, I'm Elizabeth. As a therapist over the last 11 years I have worked with a wide variety of people as an advocate and an ally in helping them heal and grow through the therapy process. Beginning to look for a therapist can bring on anxiety, but know that taking this step is already a major sign of growth. I help work through the chaos inside one's head to identify what are the actual causes of anxiety, stress, and depression. In sessions it can be a time to "vent" but more importantly, to identify the cause of stressors and what is and is not in your control. I help people learn to set boundaries, work on self-care, and coping skills, and be true to their authentic selves. I have always been an advocate for those that don't feel that their voices are heard including: LGBTQIA+ individuals, TBI survivors, Neurodivergent individuals, parents, college students, healthcare workers, teachers and individuals looking to find their self-worth. My approach starts with a person-centered mindset and by working together we will decide which therapeutic techniques will work best for you as an individual.

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.

Hi, I'm Trish Do you ever feel like you are your own worst enemy? Or perhaps that you will never have the life you want and have dreamed of living? Reaching out for therapy takes both courage and humility, and I am honored to join you on your journey. We all have blind spots and often fail to give ourselves credit for the strengths and qualities that our uniquely ours. As a therapist, I will promise to help bring out your best, so that you can make the changes needed to welcome joy into your life. I bring a ton of life experience to my practice, having faced the challenges of establishing careers- yes, more than one- raising a family of four children and maintaining a very, very, very long marriage. I have lived in eight states and six countries, and count several different nationalities among my family members. My early career was in the business world, including a Fortune 10 company as a human resources manager and recruiter. I transitioned into non-profit leadership and have sat on several boards of directors. I gain a sense of meaning by accompanying you on your life journey, especially during challenging times. My greatest satisfaction is to help you to remove the obstacles that are keeping you from the joy of living and loving.

Greetings! Are you feeling overwhelmed by day- to day issues? Are you struggling in your relationships, or having difficulties communicating with others? Do you just need a safe space to vent? These are all normal daily occurrences. This may be where you'll begin in therapy. However, the goal is to increase coping skills and decrease adverse symptoms as time progresses. My goal is to connect with you and truly understand your needs and goals. Expect an environment free of judgment where you can speak freely and show up as your authentic self. My approach is person-centered while utilizing appropriate evidence-based methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I help support young adults, individuals, and couples that may be dealing with a range of challenges in their lives related to trauma, anxiety, and depression.
