If you are overwhelmed, lost and feeling down, I would like to talk to you about how therapy can benefit you. I use a person-centered, empowerment-focused approach. I believe everyone has strengths and potential to emerge on the other side, given unconditional positive regard. I strive to create a radically safe space in which clients feel seen, heard and validated. My goal to collaborate with you to explore what safe space looks like or means to you in today's world. I meet where the client is, and together we appreciate their needs and know that their needs and feelings do matter. I do require weekly appointment for new clients for 1-2 months depending on the severity of presenting problems. It is difficult to build therapeutic rapport, complete assessments without meeting weekly at least for a month. We may discuss biweekly sessions, and new clients would benefit most from weekly, long-term therapy services in my practice. I specialize in complex PTSD, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues and women's issues. I practice culturally responsive treatment, and intersectionality guides my practice. I am certified in DBT and tailor treatment based on the client's unique presenting concerns and needs, drawing from CBT, DBT, coaching techniques, Solution Focused Approach, Motivational Interviewing, Internal Family System and body-based approach. I am currently available on the Zoom Pro platform only. I do not work with court-mandated cases, or custody cases involving law.

I came to Risa as a neurodivergent patient who was struggling with undiagnosed anxiety and depression. These conditions were unidentified and unmanaged for most of my adult life, and they started to negatively impact my overall health, personal life, career, and quality of life. Risa is one of the most compassionate, detail-oriented, and supportive medical professionals I have ever met. Whenever I am mentally or emotionally struggling, Risa is always there to help me work through the tough times with kind and positive regard. She connects with her clients uniquely and specially. She displays a natural abiity to make patients feel comfortable and safe. -client C

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with many years of experience helping people, mostly adults. I love helping people. It is such a privilege to participate in your care. I am the 'original' judgement free zone (before that other company chose that phrase; you know the one). I am a mid-westerner, and bring my midwestern sensibilities to my approach. Our relationship is collaborative and supportive. I encourage you to be an active participant in understanding yourself better from the inside out, your triggers, strengths, and past successes; to develop and strengthen your inner resources; I am creative in my thinking, and encourage you to consider the same: reading books, creating affirmations, drawing, etc.. Patience is required (of which I have much), while I serve as a container for unpacking and exploring your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and life experiences which are interfering with your growth. I do not choose your goals or make decisions for you as I cannot live your life for you. When I am not working, I enjoy knitting. "We do not harvest our inner crop on the same day we plant the seed"

Hi! People of all walks of life often go through tough times ... and I am here to help. Since 1991, I have worked with individuals across outpatient and inpatient settings, in homes and schools, and now through telehealth. I have assisted people with a variety of challenges--whether related to depression, anxiety and stress, trauma, behavioral control, self-esteem, substance use, life transition, and other issues. I believe in "possibilities thinking", goal setting, active strategizing, and frequent accounting of progress. As a long-term counselor and college psychology professor, I am well acquainted with many therapeutic approaches; however, I am somewhat partial to cognitive-behavioral therapy, relaxation and mindfulness, and solution-focused treatment. I am also formally EMDR-trained and DBT-Certified. There are many therapy options and providers--whomever you select, I wish you the best. Remember--it’s your life, your journey … make the most of it! Sincerely, Rick NOTE: At the current time, my availability will typically be from 5 pm - 8/9 pm during most weekdays (M-T-W-TH-F) and 8 am - 2/3 pm on most weekends. Daytime weekday availability is limited due to my full-time behavioral-health position. NOTE: At this time, I am accepting only adults (age 18 and up) of any age. NOTE: I am offering only 1:1 (no family or couples) therapy. NOTE: I do not engage in any court-ordered treatment. NOTE: I am interested in conducting therapy, not doing work-mandated, IEP, or other one-time (e.g., Drug & Alcohol or Mental Competency) evaluations. NOTE: Though an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor, I am not a Licensed Psychologist or a Psychiatrist. As such, I cannot conduct psychological testing or prescribe medications.

I have worked in the treatment since i was 36 and have 35 years of experience. My early experience was in the drug and alcohol and relapse prevention field. During that time i attended the Gestalt Institute in Cleveland, Ohio where I took 4 years of intense training. This lead me to find that therapy is not a method for me to figure out the client but a means for the client to gain greater self-awareness in facing their own life aspirations and struggles. I place focus on clients’ somatic awareness, especially breath, so being more in their body so they can try on new physical and intellectual styles in facing their world. I have a lot of knowledge about what is called the 12 step process and have melded together spirituality and religion in my own life. Prior to being a counselor/ therapist i taught school, painted steel bridges and other structures, and was a machinist at a large steel company, that like the many in our area have since closed their shops.

Seeking support is an important step if you're facing the challenges of everyday life. The journey towards therapy may seem overwhelming at first, but it can significantly improve your mental well-being and personal growth. Taking the initiative to find peace and happiness is an accomplishment in itself. Having someone supportive and validating of your experiences is crucial during this vulnerable time. As someone who has worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) for over 20 years, I have had the privilege of helping people overcome anxiety, depression, and trauma. My experience stems from working in residential and community mental health organizations. I always keep up with ongoing training and certifications to stay up-to-date with the latest changes and challenges that women and men face today. Together, we can set achievable goals and boundaries while identifying and working through negative thought patterns that may be hindering your progress. It would be an honor to work with you and help you improve your mental health.

I take a holistic perspective with my clients to address the health of body, mind, and spirit. I believe that a solid therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is a crucial part of the healing process, and that techniques and therapy approaches must “fit” the client in order to be effective—there is no “one size fits all” therapy. My goal, as a counselor and therapist, is to deeply understand my client, and when this happens we are able to identify areas of life that need to be changed, and ways of going about doing that. Therapy is a collaborative process between a trained therapist and a client who wants to change.

Hi this is Dhan! When you need a therapist, you need someone who can talk to you and listen to you wholly. I believe in meeting a person-in-place approach and building a rapport from there. You are taking time to read all this content as you might be trying to find help to manage your stress, anxiety, depression or trauma and thinking about who to turn to. Sometimes, you may be looking for someone to offer you choices, clarify issues or provide guidance to lead you on your way. I’m here to provide you with a safe space and listen to you non-judgmentally. I have extensive experience working with clients of different backgrounds and I am trained in most evidence-based mental health treatment modalities. Some mental health symptoms are culture-specific and you may want to explore them from your cultural perspective. My life-long goal is to provide culturally and linguistically relevant counseling and therapies. I have helped individuals and families to navigate through difficult situations with acculturation, adjustment and reducing barriers to access, manage and treat mental health. I will be using a collaborative approach to explore and utilize your strengths.
