Choosing a therapist can be a daunting process. I am inspired by anyone who is willing to reach out to a complete stranger, in order to challenge and heal themselves. I believe safety and non-judgment are among the most important aspects of the therapeutic relationship. I am committed to supporting you as we explore your thoughts and feelings, looking closely at barriers that until now have limited your insights and clarity. Your power to feel better comes from looking inward, instead of out, and I want to help you do the work to get to that healing place.

I value being a beacon of hope for my clients as they are navigating the journey of having a child and growing their family. Incorporating a client centered and positive psychology approach, I facilitate a safe place for my clients to experience the ups and downs of having a baby. I help my clients step into a more holistic narrative of themselves and their partnerships through the rollercoaster ride of IVF, IUI, and or adoption. I have successfully helped couples reconnect and feel a renewed closeness with each other. My priority is to reflect kindness and support during the challenges of family planning.

When you feel this world deeply, it can be hard not to feel overwhelmed, anxious or even depressed. Many people who seek therapy are actually highly sensitive, creative and analytical, yet because of these traits, can also become stuck in challenging patterns of perfectionism, self-doubt and confusion about balancing their inner needs with the demands of the outer world. Life transitions and the decisions that accompany them such as career changes, relationship shifts, creative project launches, and becoming a mother/father (or considering parenthood) can feel particularly difficult, especially when you fear change and uncertainty.

Thank you for taking this important step on your journey of healing and well being. My name is Stephen Gundlach. I am a psychotherapist working with individuals, couples, and teens. I see therapy as a process in which the therapist walks alongside you as a mirror and a guide to your own unfolding understanding of yourself and your unique story. In this process inner strengths and resiliencies are identified, habitual patterns that are no longer helping come to light, and desired growth and change become possible.

I can help you make changes in your life. I work with adults, couples, families and children to address stress, emotion and identity. I provide a nonjudgmental, safe and supportive space for you to explore stuck and challenging relationships, alter unproductive thoughts and behavior patterns and navigate transitions in your life. While therapy doesn't have all the answers, working together on some of these issues can help you to feel more empowered. I enjoy working with LGBTQ families, those who identify as polyamorous, and women of all shapes and sizes.

I provide phone and online sessions, please contact me by emails. I have 13 years of experience working with individuals and couples. To me, therapy is a form of healing that helps us find balance and psychological flexibility through a therapeutic process. Whether it is learning more coping skills or arriving to a new insight about ourselves, it is a journey of understanding our lives better. Through that journey, we will learn WHEN and WHAT to let go or to keep. Exploring what serve us purpose now, even the negative behaviors, can help us understand our past, present and future.

Is one or more of your kids on the Spectrum or have the ASD/ADD/OCD triad? In your relationship, is one of you on the spectrum and one not and is that causing misunderstandings and problems? Are you on the spectrum and having trouble understanding the non-spectrum people and world around you? I can help you bridge differences and deal with conflicts and meltdowns in an empathetic and constructive way. Also, I work for with LGBTQ people and couples with a variety of mental health concerns like anxiety and depression. It's hard growing up different from your peers. It can cause low self esteem, crippling self doubt and anger.

Are you struggling with relationships? Are you experiencing the many ways substance use can create pain, whether for you or someone you love? Are you living with a mental health condition that requires support? Identifying limiting beliefs and unhelpful behaviors is an essential step to living an emotionally stable life, whatever difficult crossroads you may be experiencing. Often, emotional recovery begins with healing long-buried childhood trauma. My goal in therapy with you is to be your guide on this healing journey. You don't have to do it alone. And I believe relief can sometimes happen as early as the first session.

Hello! I am a Social Worker of 14 years and started clinical social work practice 9 years ago. I have extensive training and experience in the treatment of Substance Use Disorders, Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, and other mood-related issues. I take a somatic approach to psychotherapy to understand how the past might be intruding in your life now, not to dwell, rather so you can leave it behind to be free to live your life now. I utilize a harm reduction approach, supporting you to make a decision about your goals for substance use and other behaviors-whether that's completely stopping a behavior or reducing.

Welcome therapists and psychiatrists! Engaging in psychotherapeutic work is emotionally exhausting and mentally taxing. Because of the intense and confidential nature of the work you do, it can also be extremely isolating and lonely. Being your best self requires continued attention to your psychological, spiritual, and physical well-being. Having a confidential space to process through the demands and challenges associated with being a helping professional is vital to optimize the good work you are doing with your clients.
