Living as your authentic self is sometimes a struggle with who you expect to be and who others expect you to be. Changing habits can be very difficult but I want you to know that you have the ability to start over and be the best version of yourself. As a Licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist, I use a holistic approach to support clients to meet their behavioral health goals. I love working with clients who “just need a place to vent” but also individuals who experience a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, PTSD, stress management, substance use and grief. I began training as a psychotherapist 7 years ago and have worked with diverse and vulnerable populations in social services and healthcare settings ever since.

I aim to create a safe, warm, and inviting space where one can discover their hidden strengths to overcome and prevail. There is not one thing or approach that gets a person into recovery or quality of living. Whatever is bringing you to step out of the cage and take notice to the discomfort around takes courage.

Hello! I'm Michelle. As a dedicated mental health therapist, I am committed to guiding individuals on their journey towards well-being with a strong emphasis on self-care and intention. My goal is to get my clients started with building awareness of the patterns and behaviors causing distress, setting out to build strategies into seeing the “bigger picture”, and then making the choice to shift away into "new and different". I believe that the mental health journey can feel different for everyone and is valid for all. It’s addressing the pile-on effects of everyday stress and learning how to breathe through anxiety and panic attacks. It’s establishing and keeping a daily routine as part of ADHD symptom management and finding self-compassion when experiencing depressive thoughts. There is no perfect or prescriptive way to approach the process of mental well-being. My role as a therapist is to support, facilitate, and provide collaborative space to examine all the pieces.

Life is challenging, you don’t need to navigate it by yourself. If you are bewildered and unsure of your life path, experiencing strained relationships, having difficulty “keeping up” and continually feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone. These are questions that many of my clients are searching for answers to. Life comes with many responsibilities and can be challenging to navigate. Children, adolescents and adults are becoming discouraged, lacking motivation, and frustrated by their commitments. Here are a few of the issues that I assist my clients with; I help children develop their social skills, and how to problem-solve situations, I help adolescents examine their choices in life and how to manage their emotions, and I work with adults to find purpose in life and develop self-care. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I will help guide you to identify your current concerns and to learn about your past to help us with the present. I will help identify your strengths and explore ways to use them to address life’s questions and challenges. Together we will formulate goals to address during our sessions.

Hi. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I want perspective clients to know I genuinely care about the people I work with, and have a passion for joining people on their journey to a new self. The fact that you are searching for a therapist shows you would like something to change. This is very brave. We often lose perspective about situations and how we deal with them. This can be a result of things we have buried from our past, or relationships that did not support us in the way we need. I will give you a safe and supportive place to look at your unwelcome patterns and find a way to make your journey more fulfilling. My counseling focus is on adolescents and adults. My philosophy is client-centered, Mindfulness based, trauma informed, and goal oriented. I have training and experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness. My areas of focus include trauma, attachment issues, difficulties with distress tolerance and emotional regulation, along with families dealing with Alzheimer's. Your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are what make you who you are. As we work together to understand these parts of you, we will find a way to alter those thoughts that no longer work for you and strengthen those that are helping you become who you wish to be.

Adulting is hard and brings its own sets of challenges! In fact, adulthood can be a rollercoaster ride at times. Although rewarding, being an adult has its ups and downs. Sometimes we find our “downs” are making us feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or stuck. Because there is no definitive “how to guide” for adulting, we might find ourselves having a tough time navigating some of the bumps or downs we find ourselves experiencing. What I want you to know is you do not have to feel this way forever – living a different life and enacting change is possible. And I am here to support you along the way! As a therapist, I am passionate about working with adult clients who are in early adulthood (18-35). I frequently see clients who could use extra support with navigating adulthood. Commonly, I work with clients who want to identify and act on solutions to help them feel differently, gain insight into their concerns, or even find more effective ways to cope with what’s bothering them. I often work with clients who are going through a life transition, are coping with changes in their life, or want to make a change in their life (but aren’t sure how). Frequent concerns that tend to pop up in my work with clients include anxiety, depression, stress, overwhelm, irritability, low motivation, feeling "stuck", problems sleeping and burnout. I also support clients with perfectionism, health concerns, grief/loss, poor work-life balance, difficulties boundary setting, and/or a desire to communicate more effectively. If any of this resonates with you, please reach out and schedule your intake appointment. It would be a pleasure to work with you!

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.

Hello, my name is Stefanie and I am a LCSW therapist dedicated to providing high-quality therapy services that prioritize your well-being and growth. My mission is to help you live your best life by embodying the values of service, competency, and kindness in my work. I understand that every individual has unique needs and goals, and I am committed to working collaboratively with you to achieve your desired outcomes. With a focus on integrity and respect, I strive to create a safe and supportive environment where you can feel heard, validated, and empowered. To help you on your journey, I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches, including CBT and DBT as a groundwork for the therapeutic process. I also incorporate Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and various non-traditional therapies, such as play therapy, to cater to your unique needs. I believe that everyone should have access to the knowledge and tools of various therapeutic modalities to get the help and support they need towards their healing. My core values of kindness, respect, and competency are the strengths that guide me in helping you achieve your goals. I recognize that the path towards stability and success is not necessarily linear, and setbacks, challenges, and barriers can arise. I am here to meet you where you're at and guide you towards your desired goal. With a focus on your story of resilience, we will work through any obstacles to help you get unstuck. Thank you for considering me as your therapist. I look forward to working with you on your journey towards healing and growth.
