I began my work in behavioral health in 2009 working with children and teens diagnosed with developmental disabilities. I became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) in 2012, implementing applied behavior analysis therapy in homes and schools. Then I completed my doctorate in psychology at the University of Rhode Island, which included training in psychoeducational assessment and cognitive behavioral therapy to help youth and their families address concerns stemming from anxiety disorders, behavioral disorders, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. I became a licensed clinical psychologist in 2020, but learning never stops. I aim to help clients identify and achieve their personal growth goals.

I understand that sometimes life can be challenging and can hinder personal growth, happiness, relationships, quality of life, professional success, parenting among other things. You feel like you are spinning your wheels but not going anywhere. You feel exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, apathetic, sad and/or irritated. You may be surprised to know that there are ways to cope with these feelings so you can grab the reigns and get back on that horse! You want to create meaningful changes but aren’t sure where to start. I believe that the catalyst to that change exists within each of us, sometimes we need a little help to find it. I have experience working with older adults, adults, (teens 17+), veterans, active-duty military and their families, college students, EMS personnel, and caregivers in the treatment of mental health and life transition issues, marital issues, interpersonal issues, deployment, military separation, reunification, divorce, pregnancy, work and school issues, parenting and end of life issues (grief/placement). I can also provide case-management services, life coaching and ESA evaluations/letters.

I am currently accepting new clients via teletherapy. I have been practicing as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida for the past 22 years and am also a Licensed Therapist in Virginia, largely with a focus in the areas of depression, anxiety, thought disturbance, addiction, emotion regulation, relationship distress, and self-esteem. I feel many of the responses we struggle with are connected to a traumatic event (or perceived trauma) from the past. I am also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and worked in the past with individuals of various ages across the Autism Spectrum. Currently, my primary focus has been in the individual/couples/relational therapy realm. I will encourage you to prioritize the areas you wish to address in therapy and tailor my approach on an individual basis. I believe in client autonomy so the areas that are addressed are the areas you want to address. I draw on several treatment modalities (including, but not limited to, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to allow you to further develop your strengths and help you meet all of your treatment plan goals at a speed that works best for you. I also have completed training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy as well as the Developmental Model for Couples and integrate both of these approaches into my relational therapy practice. Overall, I help you to see that managing the stressor is more important than just managing the stress as it will allow you to cope with anything that comes your way.

Hi there! Let's sit and chat... Are you looking for a safe space to explore and organize your thoughts and feelings? Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience one another as real people. I can assure you our sessions will be as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for. We'll work on building trust, a sense of safety, open communication, and humor to identify how we can improve on your already existing coping skills, supports, and knowledge. Although this process may be challenging, we will work to enjoy the process as much as possible, so you can experience yourself, your relationships, and your life in new ways. Simply put, I don't think therapy has to be a painful thing for you. Starting this step can be hard and I would love the opportunity to work with you on this journey. For Private Pay Clients: Individual Sessions: $115/hour Couple/Family Sessions: $140/hour **While I am in network with various insurances, all couples and families are seen via private pay. This allows us to focus on the relationships in the room, rather than the diagnosis of an individual.

My name is Jennifer Bailey, I am a licensed clinical social worker and registered drama therapist. I support my clients in their desire to identify and achieve goals that allow them to live a life that brings them pride and contentment. Now you may be thinking “What in the world is Registered Drama Therapist (RDT)”? An RDT is a clinician that uses components of theater and drama to assist in making therapeutic changes. What this means is you have a choice. You could come to session and talk through what’s been going on with you, the emotions you are feeling or the goals you want to accomplish. Or you could come to session and create some art, express yourself through written word, enact the scenario where you said that thing you should have said in that one conversation that is replaying in your head. You could role play saying that comment that you thought of after the fact. Traditional psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, is a brilliant way to gain understanding and accomplish your goals. However, there are times that maybe, talking it through just isn’t enough, maybe a movement, a sound, a song or picture helps you express and comprehend what’s going on inside you. Whatever you decide, in your session with me, you have a choice. I would be honored to help you, whether it be through helping you accomplish your goals, explore your thoughts and feelings or make positive and productive changes to your life. I hope to hear from you soon.

My clinical experiences began in acute psychiatric treatment facilities and have taken me through a variety of environments and populations to include adolescents as well as adults. I feel the therapeutic relationship can produce change through hard work and guidance as well as creativity and persistence. The therapeutic relationship is one of the most important foundations for change.

Life is hard and sometimes we need help navigating through it. So many of us have those negative thoughts / beliefs that play out in our mind, some from early childhood trauma, others from ourselves. I can help you get rid of those negative messages and reduce or eliminate any symptoms that are a result of those messages and improve your life. I believe that a lot of us have beliefs/ thoughts that are a source of distress, does not matter if / when they started, it matters that they are distressing. There is a lot of negative out there and it is easy to focus on that and not what the positive that you are doing. A lot of people need help in seeing the positive there are doing and being validated for their feelings/actions. I meet the person where they are and will tailor the sessions with input from you to what best meets your needs. I am eclectic. I will provide education on different trauma treatment modalities to provide you the information that will help you decide the treatment modality that works best for you.

A firm believer in solution-focused, strengths-based, and action-oriented therapeutic approaches, Arika Adams, LCSW, has had over a decade of working with children and families who have experienced trauma, including significant work with adoptive families - particularly those adopting older children - and families struggling with addiction. Trained in EMDR, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, her goal is to help you feel empowered to make the decisions you feel will help you live your best life. At your first appointment, you’ll review items you want to work on, and set goals together to make a plan forward.

Hi, I'm Eva. Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, tired and just not as active in your life as you would like to be? Feeling challenged with just keeping up with everyday activities. Seem to forget to take care of yourself, that everybody else comes before you? I help people like yourself to get back to feeling more positive, less tired, burnt out, isolated and lonely. We will together come up with a plan for how to best work on the issues that you want to change. We will use an approach that you feel most comfortable with, and work toward a life that gives back pleasure, harmony and ease. Whether you are dealing with a situational situation or a longer-term struggle I'll be there to support you through your work. You have already taken a big step in the right direction just by reading through different clinicians' statements. The next step is to choose a clinician, contact Growth Therapy and set up an appointment. Sometimes these are the hardest steps to take. One of my most important goals is to provide you with a safe space where you feel validated, and supported and provide you with no judgment, compassion and respect.
