Hello, and thank you for taking the time to invest in your mental health. Are you having a hard time balancing family, work, and life? Are you struggling with avoidance and anxiety about the future? Are you just ready for a change and aren't sure how to make a plan of action? It's difficult to grow without support and even harder at times to find the tools to carve your own path. If you feel ready to explore how to reach your unique potential; let's figure out some goals, what's in the way, and how we can work through those challenges so you can reach your goals. My background in research, crisis care, inpatient, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, in-home therapy, group therapy and outpatient therapy has given me exposure to several forms of therapy. I am currently practicing CBT, DBT, ACT and some elements of other forms of therapy. If you are curious how we could approach your challenges and goals, please reach out and we can discuss options. Consultations are welcomed.

Hi, my name is Debbie. Are you struggling with anxiety, fear, depression, anger, disappointment, trauma or difficult relationships? I have worked with all ages and walks of life in my 25 years of experience. As a seasoned therapist.

Do you struggle with feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Do you struggle with finding personal and work-life balance? Do you find it hard to cope with current life stressors and situations? Do you struggle with the pain of your past life experiences presenting itself in your day to day? Can you imagine a place where you are free to be yourself, a place where you can share your thoughts and feelings and be open without the fear of judgment? Being seen, heard and understood is important and necessary to taking the steps on the journey to a healthier you. Hello, I am Felicia and as a therapist, I endeavor to create a space to allow self-awareness, true healing and personal growth to happen. We all have different life experiences and sometimes figuring out how to deal and cope with those experiences is challenging and requires a little help. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, chronic stress, trauma, struggling with relationships or a life transition, change is possible. Through our work together I want to help you meet your goals as you take this journey to feel better. I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome hurdles in your life. I view therapy as a safe space for processing life experiences, emotions, thoughts, and trauma to achieve one’s goals and necessary growth. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with you to understand your thought processes, address barriers to wellness, and identify ways in which you can achieve your goals. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives; however, sometimes need an outside perspective to help re-frame our thinking. Asking for help isn't easy and you are not alone! We all need support at times and I would be honored to be that support for you! Thanks again for taking the first step on this journey to a healthier you.

My name is Doug and I think you are making a wonderful decision on taking the first step towards reaching out for support. I have successfully worked as a counselor for 38 years and have also taken advantage of counseling opportunities to better myself. I look forward to meeting you, learning about your hopes and passions and seeing if we can work together to help you feel better and function more effectively. I am skilled at working with clients who struggle with handling stress, depression, anxiety or substance use issues. I am very experienced helping persons with severe and persistent mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia, severe Bipolar Disorder or Major Depressive Disorder. As I am 63 years old I also feel very comfortable helping older adults who face a variety of new challenges later in life. A good counselor knows their limitations and as such, I suggest you seek a different person if you are looking for help with trauma-related issues or partner issues. In my free time I enjoy traveling with my wife, cooking, reading, cycling, periodically pretend to be a golfer and (usually enjoy) watching my NY Jets!

Welcome to Dr. Mitchell's safe and brave space! I began my career working with "at-risk children and youth" and families in 1995. Many struggling with substance abuse, poverty, child abuse, and neglect. While maintaining the person in the environment perspective throughout my career, I supported antiracist policies, ideas, and actions. This is why I continue to practice in a manner that promotes self-awareness and self-reflectiveness for myself and with clients in a healing journey to self-care and resilience. I believe it is important to use narrative therapy and other therapies with the theory of intersectionality to remain person-centered. My practice is also focused on treating trauma and/or race-based stress that has shaped a person’s inner world; so the use of Feminist therapy, Queer Theory, and Liberation Psychology are introduced as appropriate. I welcome everyone who values peace to come and try with me.

With both personal and clinical experience working through depression, anxiety, PTSD, dissociation and grief, I am most passionate about working through trauma and PTSD. Having overcome complex trauma and PTSD, I believe that others can too. I know what it is like to feel desperate. I know what it's like to wake up in the morning and wish I hadn't. I know what it's like to lose hope. And I know what it's like to journey through the stages of grief and find new life. If I can find hope and laugh and love again, you can too.

Hey, my name is Marrium Guirguis and I am here to help you wherever you are in life. I believe we all have a story to tell and regardless of how similar two experiences sound, they will still be very different from each other and deserve to be heard, validated and worked with uniquely. Throughout my career, I have specialized in working with adults and adolescents 14+ with PTSD, Anxiety, working with survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence, family dynamics, supportive therapy through challenges, people with disabilities, and young couples. One thing uniquely about myself is that I am a little person (dwarfism). I navigate the world at 3’6” tall and had to overcome a lot and have learned tremendously from my experiences. If you resonate with that and feel there could be a lot to unpack and work through, I can help you. I have had great success in incorporating one's culture, faith, values and morals due to it being integral in understanding who they are. My Christian faith has influenced my desire to help people, but I enjoy working with people of all backgrounds in a faith-based or secular style, based on your preference. Life is moving pretty fast with all of the rapid changes occurring daily. This may be what you are looking for to be able to gain that much more control over it.

Whether there has been a significant loss, a life transition, relational conflict, or daily stressors, we all need support during difficult times. Sometimes, however, a trained professional can help navigate these challenges and assist in facilitating positive change. We aren’t always able to recognize the underlying cause of our discomfort or find ways to overcome life’s challenges. In a therapeutic setting, we will work together to discover healthier ways for you to deal with life’s struggles, make desired changes, improve relationships, and find inner healing. Seeking therapy can be viewed as an investment in yourself. Improving mental and emotional health is as important as one’s physical health. My role is to provide a safe space and come alongside you on your journey. I work with adolescents and adults and provide individual, couples, and family counseling services. I treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, (PTSD), relationship issues, parenting, behavioral concerns, and many other problems affecting how we feel and operate in the world.
