"There can be no transforming of darkness into light ... without emotion." -Jung Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the core of my training. It embraces the belief systems of the past that affect your present. It's a state-of-mind that defines thinking that affects emotional awareness. To become aware is not to change, but to understand and accept. Carrying guilt or shame of the past, triggers the conflict of now. I don't offer advice - I offer choices - a chance to choose your own method of healing that fits you - not something others feel 'should' be. Come. Sit. Talk. Let's wander your path together. Licensed in Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, Washington DC, Arizona, and Florida

Hello! My name is Carolina, and I am a licensed professional counselor (bilingual/Spanish). My greatest passion is helping others live their best lives because no matter who you are or where you come from, you deserve to live the life you CHOOSE! As a clinician, I help my clients gain the insight, skills, and tools to overcome life challenges and move toward healing and wellness. I started my counseling journey about ten years ago, providing psychoeducation and counseling to children and teens. I worked with families, couples, and individuals. Most of my clinical training has been in autism, multi-systemic therapy, and trauma, working primarily with the Latino population or black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). In addition, I have extensive experience working with victims of crime and sexual assault and survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence, adjustment disorder/transitions, grief/loss, postpartum depression/anxiety, and loss through miscarriage. I recently began my journey as a doctoral student in counseling this past summer. I hope to continue growing my practice and making a positive impact in the lives of others. I am also certified in success and life coaching and love incorporating those skills into my work in therapy. I genuinely believe in the power of the mind and how important it is to care for ourselves and our mental health. I love being with family, reading, watching movies, and relaxing with my pets in my free time. I am a mother, wife, sister, and friend, and I'm so grateful for the people in my life and the opportunity to be part of others' stories and their path to healing. Please reach out if you are ready to take this step in your life. I am looking forward to working together.

I am a psychotherapist who works with a diverse population of people. My goal is to collaborate with individuals to assist them in achieving their therapy goal(S). My treatment modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and Ericksonian hypnotherapy approaches. Although I used these modalities, I do not use a one size fits all approach. I am a think-out-of-the-box clinician that will often challenge clients to try approaches that may be out of their comfort zone. Some examples of my experience include working with individual clients on developing skills in coping with mental health conditions/diagnosis, life stress, finding balance, and improving self-esteem. Although I use these approaches, my clients tell me it feels like we are having a conversation as opposed to feeling like they are in a therapy session. I have a specialization in working with Veterans, LGBTQI, men, and people of color populations. However, I work with all people who are seeking mental health services. I am licensed in DC (LICSW), VA (LCSW), MD (LCSW-C), and PA (LCSW). I have BS in Human Ecology, BA in Humanities from The Ohio State University, MSW from San Jose State University and Post Masters fellowship in mental health from Stanford University.

Carl Jung once said, "One day You will grow up and the world will ask you who You are. If You don't know who you are, the world will quickly tell You." I believe the active choices we make, play a crucial role in shaping our sense of personal satisfaction, emotional confidence, and overall well-being. Changing the story, you tell about yourself, can have a profound impact on how difficult or easy the next few years of your life will be. Will Your story be one of courage, conviction and personal empowerment, or a repetitive tale of powerlessness? Will it be a story of accountability and healing, or shame? You are the only with the power to decide you matter. Empower Your voice. Redesign and refine...Choose freedom.

My name is Willard and I am a licensed counselor in several states. My practice primarily focuses on helping others deal with ambiguity. Often our thoughts and subsequently what we teach ourselves becomes rigid and fairly black and white. Using a pragmatic and authentic approach to therapy I help others to be okay with things that are beyond their control and work with them to establish themselves as the protagonist in their own story. This is primarily accomplished through conversation and allowing you the client to guide the therapy in the direction it needs to go.

My approach is treating the whole person because most of the time our problems are the outcome of more than just one thing and when I get to know you I am able to address different issues that could be contributing to that one specific problem. We all experience some difficulties in our lives sometimes and we all cope differently. What works for one person/couple who are experiencing a similar situation may not work for another and so I personalize your treatment to fit you. Being in therapy is like being on a journey, I make sure you are in the driver’s seat and I become your great working GPS, guiding you to your desired destination. I also hold a degree in finance which sometimes comes handy when helping those who are stressed due to financial needs.

Hi, I'm Erin! The one thing I love about being a therapist is being able to help individuals break the cycles in their lives that cause them feelings of "being stuck." I utilize a mix of tools/ interventions from Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy that allow clients to explore unresolved issues, challenge their thoughts, and develop insight into barriers that can be blocking their growth. My main job as a therapist is to teach my clients how to regain control over their lives whether it's from anxiety, depression or stress; we will work together to come up with a therapeutic style that helps clients progress towards their goals.

I specialize in anxiety, couples counseling, Christian counseling, holistic health, family conflict, grief, parenting, postpartum, self-esteem issues, and women's issues. Life is filled with challenges, from relationships and life changes to traumatic events, anxiety, and depression. Finding a space where you are seen and heard is crucial; a place where you are valued and free to process your fears, hurts, expectations, and needs—from the practical to the painful. A place where you are welcome to share all parts of your story: mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, and relational. This is that place, and I am so glad you are here! I am a certified social worker licensed in Maryland, DC, Michigan, and California, with licenses as an LICSW, LCSW-C, and LCSW. With over 17 years of education and professional experience, I offer a client-centered space where we work together to bring change, healing, and help wherever you need it. I have lived in several places across the country, experiencing various cultures, strengths, and needs. We will work together to create an effective plan with tools and strategies specifically tailored for you. I understand that no single modality is universally effective for every individual or couple, and I have dedicated my career to acquiring proficiency in various clinical approaches. My experience includes Christian Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Informed Therapy, Couples Counseling, Grief Therapy, and Anxiety Therapy. While CBT provides a main structure for my approach, the foundation of our work is built on your story and the core beliefs you hold. Therapy is only as effective as the relationship built between you and me. As such, I prioritize authenticity, transparency, and trust. If you are looking for a safe, genuine, welcoming space, I trust you will find it here! I hope to have the opportunity to journey with you through this season of your life...

Hi, my name is Efraim Eshaghian. I have been in therapy myself, and I have come to realize what allows one to live the life he would like to live. We work on allowing the client recognize his/her own solutions and path to greatness. Together, we create the amazing experience of being empowered, which is so powerful.
