Hello, My name is Keith, I have been working with youth and adolescents in the mental health field for about thirteen years. I have worked with young people suffering from traumatic experiences (PTSD), to include physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. I have assisted young people with symptoms associated with depression and anxiety. Also, I have experience in assisting young people with self-esteem/self-worth issues. I have helped young people who are suicidal and with individuals suffering from psychotic disorders. Further, I have assisted young people with tension within the home setting and ways he or she can navigate these feelings in a healthy manner. Personally, I have two daughters that are my world and a very spoiled elderly dog. I enjoy sports, working out, and being outdoors. I have been described as very easy going and easy to talk to. In my practice, the client comes first, and the conversation goes where he or she would like it to.

Hello. I'm Joseph. Do you feel so anxious it is hard to leave the house in the morning? Do you feel so depressed and sad that is hard to get out of bed in the morning? Anxiety and depression are common. You are not alone in feeling this way. I help people who struggle to deal with the stresses of life. Working together, we can identify what causes your depression and anxiety and work to find solutions which will make life easier for you. It is all about finding balance. My experience allows me to help you deal with your stress, relationship issues, anxiety, trauma, or depression. Some people worry about what others will think if they seek out therapy.

It is safe place where you can talk about whatever is on your mind and know that everything is confidential.

Welcome! The Ebbs and Flows of Life are something we all experience. We flow towards our hopes and dreams, while other times we may flow away. When your life ebbs it is like you are struggling against the current, and fighting your way through the current to grasp what is important to you. Perhaps the times you are flowing away are a result of relationship concerns, addiction, past trauma, anxiety or living with negativity. Like large rocks under the water, you may not be able to see them but they are creating obstacles in achieving your goals while potentially impacting both your health and well-being. I believe that by taking this step in seeking help you are interested in moving forward back to what is important to you. My role is to help you on your journey. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 19 years experience working as a Mental Health Counselor as well as a social work educator. My intention is to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment to address the concerns you may be experiencing that is getting in the way of living life the way that is most beneficial to you.

You are experiencing feelings or struggles that don't seem to make sense. You feel like you "should" be happy, and able to do all the things, or that you "shouldn't" be stressed or worried because your problems aren't that bad. There are changes in your life, planned or unplanned, that are difficult. Things have happened that you've never been able to talk about. Maybe you are experiencing a COVID hangover? (Difficulty re-engaging in life in a way that is fulfilling.) Hi! I’m Gina and I specialize in empowering people to recognize that there are valid reasons why they feel the way they feel and do the things they do. I love to facilitate light bulb moments where my client begins to see things differently and realizes that they are not inherently flawed. Their thoughts, feelings, and responses make sense. I work with older adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, past or recent trauma, coping with transitions and changes in their lives, ADHD & depression. I take a strengths-based approach and focus on the whole person. I use a straightforward, down-to-earth approach to engage with my clients using strategies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR, to work toward overall well-being.

My work as a psychotherapist is rooted in a profound belief that by recognizing and honoring our complex, messy life stories with honesty and gentleness, we lay the foundation to heal the obstacles preventing us from building fulfilling, meaningful lives. Throughout life, we all create narratives about ourselves to help us survive. These narratives are shaped by myriad factors (individual life experiences, relationships, intergenerational legacies, and experiences of oppression/privilege, belonging/rejection, among others). Over time, our narratives and coping mechanisms fall short. We wonder, what went wrong? What's wrong with me?

I am a psychotherapist who is eager to help you become your best self inside and out. I have experience working with clients in crisis and also with clients presenting with diverse presentations i.e. mood disorders, autism, ADHD, grief, PTSD, postpartum depression and more. I bring my artistic background to the forefront through the 'tasks' I give to clients to practice the skills outside of session(s). I focus on building a secure and in-depth rapport as that to me, is the cornerstone to any successful therapeutic relationship. I look to you the client for direction on what goals to focus on and the pace we can decide on together to work on each one. I like to measure progress through your report and then as progress is close to being met there is a 'graduation' process that signifies the successful end of services. Outside of being a therapist I have a family and I enjoy the outdoors and painting.

I believe you already possess everything you need to heal yourself. The missing piece is a trained therapists like me to help guide you by giving insight, asking thought provoking questions, and most importantly, listening and holding the space for you to be vulnerable and grow. I will work with you to identify and work on issues you bring to our sessions. My approach to counseling operates from a strength base approach to help you identify your strengths within yourself and develop self-awareness that will aid you to meet your goals through your active involvement as well as efforts to change your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Sometimes change will be easy and swift, but often it will be slow and deliberate. Regardless of how long it takes, I will be supporting you to make the changes in your life that bring you happiness and joy. Let's go create the Life you desire one step at a time.

Hello I am Laura Cahill! I am a passionate, energetic, and dedicated Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a love for the art of engagement in the work of therapy. Do you feel like your emotions have taken over and pushed you out of the driver's seat in life? In life, we often experience challenges, unexpected stress and transitions, trauma, hurt, grief and loss. Understandably, we may struggle with powerful emotions that seem to almost overtake us. Part of the human experience is wanting to feel in control of our inner and outer lives. And when our natural emotional responses to difficult experiences and circumstances threaten that sense of control, we may find ourselves fighting our feelings. It’s time to step back from the battle-not by retreating, but by re-framing. Our emotions and feelings are not our enemies, they are messengers. This is where our work begins. We will focus on how to hear those messages by learning the skills needed to hear, manage and interact with these feelings to help calm the turmoil that life has taken on, understand and recover from the past, and to be fully present to our current experiences. To have the opportunity to create a life that is built on your terms and not defined by what has happened to you. Entering into the world of therapy can feel overwhelming and a bit scary (well done making it this far). I applaud your bravery and commitment to your process of healing and recovery and I would be honored to have the opportunity to get to know you better and to be a part of this journey with you.

I am passionate about effecting change and helping work with people to achieve insight in order to gain maximum potential and reach their most desired visions and goals. I know personally and professionally, how difficult it is to get here and I am proud of your first step and commitment to change. I know I can be of valued support as we work together to reach success, insight, and overcome emotional and psychosocial stressors. A little more about me; I was born and raised in Florida. I did my undergraduate at Florida State University, and moved to Virginia to attend Eastern Virginia Medical School, where I studied clinical counseling and received my Master’s in Art Therapy. As a military spouse, we relocated many times, having to redevelop my career each duty station, which gave me a myriad of experiences with various populations. This has lead me to focus on occupational counseling and the effects of stress on our mental health. My passion for treatment is trauma and life experiences that lead us to feel fearful, unsafe, and saddened; sometimes with no explanation as to why we feel the way we do. I work with my client’s in a person-centered format with cognitive-behavioral underpinnings and psychoeducation to not only work through and build a better understanding of ourselves but the experiences and beliefs that built us and ways to endure and build resiliency to better manager those feelings so they are not as overwhelming in the future.
