Greetings, I'm Maritza Solis, a bilingual and bicultural clinical therapist who is passionate about holistic methods to heal people's mind, body, and spirit. Through my culture I learned about the power of community, spirituality, and natural remedies to promote well-being. My philosophy of therapy is based on the belief that everyone has the ability to heal themselves, and my role is to facilitate that process by providing a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space. I draw from evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and dialectical behavior therapy, as well as natural remedies, prayer, meditation, and yoga to create a truly holistic approach. Ultimately, my goal as a therapist is to empower individuals to live their best lives by helping them reconnect with their inner selves and tap into their own inherent healing abilities. I believe that true healing happens when we address the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. Open to working with children and adolescents ages 8 and older.

If you've never been in therapy before, I know it can be a scary step. Be proud of your bravery. If you have been in therapy before, I'm glad you chose to return. Either way, my job is to help you find your strengths to learn to manage any issues you are dealing with so you can find your peace again. It is a journey and it won't always be easy but it will be worth it. I have been a therapist and a psychology professor for almost 30 years. I have worked with children, teens, and adults, although I have spent the majority of my career working with teens. I enjoy teens. I have a lot of patience for them. I believe in psychoeducation in therapy. I think that it's not only important to understand what you are doing but why you are doing it. Only by understanding both can you make the changes necessary for long-term happiness. I also believe in working on both the present and the past. I want to help you figure out how to make the present better immediately, while also working to understand anything from your past that may have helped lead to any current issues. Working on both in combination will give the most thorough explanation and avenue for effective treatment. Most importantly, I believe in working together. I may be the "expert" but only you know what is working and what isn't. I will ask you for feedback and I will listen to what you have to say. I am more than willing to do phone appointments if you find them more comfortable than video appointments. Just let me know.

As an avid runner, I believe there is a strong connection between the mind and body and I try to incorporate a holistic approach in therapy. Whether it is offering nutritional suggestions on foods that help alleviate depressive symptoms, or helping you identify a form of exercise that helps you alleviate your stress and anxiety, I look at you as a ‘whole person’ rather than a collection of symptoms. Often described as patient and calm, I utilize these traits to create a safe space for you to explore your difficulties and find solutions. Practicing from a solution-focused perspective I believe that even the smallest changes are a step in the right direction. I'll work alongside you as a guide and focus on your strengths to help you build upon what is already working. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families.

Hi I'm Regina Do you know that everyone feels overwhelmed; especially now. Balancing family, work demands, and life is challenging. Everyone experiences these things differently and may need some reminding of their own strengths. I am a highly trained therapist with many years of experience helping clients realize their own potential. My approach is filtered through a culturally rich and ethnically diverse lens. I'm gentle, empathic and meet my clients where they are at. Building upon past coping mechanisms will enable you to develop and find more effective ways of managing life stressors. Look, I get that everyone has some level of depression and anxiety. There are many interventions we can use from the traditional methods such as cognitive behavioral and solution-focused to the latest smart phone apps. I recognize that it will be hard work! But, through your hard work will be where true success comes.

In my experience as a counselor, I have had the privilege of working with a wide range of individuals in various settings. I have worked with children and adults in the community, residential, hospital, and educational settings. In each environment I have witnessed the marvel of human potential firsthand. As a clinician I approach people and the work that I do from the belief that people have the innate ability to grow and heal on their own. My personal life experience and my practice have fostered this belief, recognizing that the process may require or be made more manageable with some assistance or a guide, in the form of counseling. Through my experiences I have witnessed the benefits of the human components that aid in the healing process of psychological symptoms that create difficulty in moving toward fulfillment and full integration of the human experience in the lives of many. The therapeutic relationship, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard are components that for me represent the core of therapy. These components create an experience in which someone can safely explore themselves, their experiences, the world around them, and identify solutions to ailments and the "true self" that is often altered by the world around us.

Welcome! I'm Kendra Pepper-Graham, LCSW I am so glad you are here! We all have a journey, and this path may come with twists and turns. Many of them are unwanted and feel extremely overwhelming. Thank you for exploring ways to change your life. Connection and compassion are my keys to starting your new life. Building a strong, safe environment for you to feel comfortable, is vital in therapy. My approach is based on strength’s perspective and client-centered therapy working together to achieve the outcomes you need. Each member of a family experiences and communicates those stressors differently. Let me assist you in experiencing improved communication and piecing together a new path! I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment that allows clients to explore obstacles with concerns related to anxiety, depression, and/or self-care. I focus on helping clients develop assertive communication & boundaries with themselves and those around them that can help improve their quality of life. Counseling can foster personal development in whatever way you may be seeking and help build the life you so deeply deserve. If that's what you're looking for, I'm here when you're ready to share!
