Meet Rebecca!

Hi and welcome – I’m glad you’re here. I’m happy that you’ve taken this step towards seeking support. As a therapist, I strive to embody qualities that are essential for our therapeutic journey together: warmth, directness, encouragement. My goal is to create a safe and secure environment that is judgment free, while nurturing and supporting you as you navigate your challenges. Recognizing that each person’s story is unique, I’m dedicated to meeting you exactly where you are in your life. 
I hold the belief that the hurdles we face in our everyday lives often have roots in our past experiences, early connections, and attachments. Through our collaboration, I hope to provide you with the tools and resources needed to overcome life’s obstacles. Together, we’ll explore the depths of your past and present, fostering insight and awareness. My aim is to empower you by helping you make meaningful connections and discover your best self.
My experience spans across various age groups, including children, teens, and adults. I specialize in addressing concerns like anxiety, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, family conflicts, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, depression, stress, life transitions, codependency, as well as grief and loss. I’m bilingual, fluent in English and Spanish, meaning we can engage in sessions in the language you’re most comfortable with, or a blend of both.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Your journey towards healing and growth matters, and I’m here to support you every step of the way.

Meet Taryn!

Are you interested in diving deep into your current behaviors and past patterns to better understand yourself and create sustainable change? Do you find yourself wanting more than surface-level, temporary solutions to your problems? Do you want to enhance your relationships and create healthier ways of being with the people around you?
If you’re ready to make long-lasting changes, I’m here to help. I believe each person is complex and deserves more than surface-level solutions. This is true for individuals and couples who might be in pain and need to explore not only their current issues, but also the emotional experiences that lie beneath. My goal is to help clients explore and gain an understanding of their suffering and how it impacts who they are, how they behave, and how they show up in relationships. The more you understand yourself, the less your suffering will drive your decisions on a subconscious level. 
As a therapist, I believe it’s essential to be empathic and kind, while also being direct and honest so clients can see the patterns that have been unhelpful to them. I am skilled at expressing the truth of what I’m seeing with respect to each person, which is especially integral to my therapy with couples. Oftentimes, couples are aware of harmful dynamics but struggle to verbalize it for themselves, and are unaware of how to change these patterns. Being able to shine a light on what typically goes unsaid allows all clients to take great steps toward sustainable change. 
With a background in anti-racist, LGBTQ+-informed work, I approach therapy with care and curiosity about each person’s personal history and how they have been impacted by the culture and world around them. I use psychodynamic, trauma-informed and relational modalities to move through pain, healing and growth. I work virtually or in person with individuals, couples, and groups.

Meet Sarah!

As a trauma-informed, strengths-based therapist, I don’t believe in pathologizing or labeling clients. You aren’t broken or bad; rather, you may have learned to protect and care for yourself in ways that no longer serve you. Therapy can help shed light on these patterns, and with awareness comes choice – once we’re able to identify and understand our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, we can begin to transform them for the better. Together, you and I can uncover what lies at the root of your issues and explore new strategies for creating positive change.

I am passionate about working with individuals struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship and family issues, and low self-esteem. I take an integrative, holistic approach to therapy, incorporating modalities such as EMDR, IFS, somatic therapies, and CBT, as well as elements of mindfulness, self-compassion, and attachment theory. Ultimately, however, I believe therapy should be a collaborative process, and we can work together to see how our sessions can best meet your unique needs.

Facing the past, unearthing negative beliefs, and embracing new mindsets can be a scary and overwhelming process, but you don’t have to go through it alone. My goal is to create a warm, compassionate space where you feel safe to practice self-exploration and embrace change. If you think we might be a good fit, please don’t hesitate to reach out and I’d be happy to discuss what our work together could look like.

Hi, I’m Doria! My philosophy on therapy is based on the power of introspection, understanding our relationships with others, and the knowledge that we all have the capacity to make changes in our lives.

My belief is that my role as a therapist is to help you explore yourself in the setting of a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment. I will help you understand yourself better in the context of all of your relationships both past and present, and we will work together to help you make the changes you seek in life. Most importantly, I want to help you find a sense of peace in becoming your most authentic self. I decided to become a therapist in large part because therapy has made such a profound difference in my life, and I feel incredibly lucky that I get to pay that forward to you.

If you are looking for someone who wants to work with you and not just someone who will listen and nod, then I would love to hear from you!
