In my 16 years as a mental health professional, I've dedicated myself to creating a space where you are the focal point of our therapeutic alliance. My practice is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, enriched by Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) principles. DBT equips us with a structured yet flexible framework to navigate our emotional landscape. We begin with mindfulness, cultivating an awareness that anchors you in the present and fosters an attitude of self-compassion. Being fully present allows you to engage more authentically with your narrative and the therapeutic process. For those moments when life's challenges feel overwhelming, we'll employ DBT's distress tolerance strategies to help you find a center of calm and resilience. Building on this, emotion regulation techniques are tailored to empower you to manage intense feelings and respond to situations that align with your goals and values. Interpersonal effectiveness is another cornerstone of our work, enhancing your ability to communicate your needs clearly and maintain fulfilling relationships. As we navigate this path, your personal goals and strengths will guide our journey, ensuring that therapy remains a collaborative and validating experience. This integrative approach is about harmonizing the acceptance of your authentic self with the drive for change and growth. It's about building a life that not only endures hardships but also celebrates your unique journey towards healing and fulfillment. I invite you to embark on this transformative journey with me. Discover a therapy that is not just about overcoming, but thriving; not just about healing, but living fully. Start the conversation and explore the possibilities for your path forward by scheduling your appointment. Together, we can craft a life that resonates with who you are and who you wish to become. Your story is waiting to unfold, and I am here to listen, support, and guide you through each chapter.

Greetings, my name is John Luke. I am a licensed clinical social worker and specialize in helping people to effectively manage anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns using cognitive behavioral techniques. I have worked with a range of populations, nearly all ages, and also have experience with addiction treatment and life-coaching. I work with people to develop insight into the source of their problems, how their core beliefs about the world might be hindering their progress, and focus on their natural strengths to overcome those barriers with practical skills that generate sustainable change. Some of my other specialties include short-term, solution-focused therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy techniques; psychodynamic approaches; and marital counseling. Some of the problems I am particularly keen on solving with my clients include issues with self-image and confidence; dating and relationships; boundary-setting and assertive communication; as well as general anxiety management; and learning to identify and productively resolve emotional unrest. I am also very experienced in cognitive restructuring, which is just a fancy way of saying helping to change the way a person thinks about the world and their place in it. I also enjoy aiding people in goal setting and identification, meaning-making, and navigating family conflicts. If you feel any of this could be helpful or useful to you, please do not hesitate to reach out! (Note: I do work with couples, but only on a cash-pay basis. Also, I only work with ages 18+)

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?

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.

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.
