I tend to work with individuals and couples in a collaborative way. I attempt to assess what the goals are and explore how to get there. Generally, I see the work in a couple of phases: establishing a safe, supportive environment and secondly, attempting to provide insight for those I work with. Insight is part of it, then one must attempt to deal with some of the inevitable challenges of changing. To this end, a collaborative relationship allows for us to work at the Client's pace, with perhaps, some occasional supportive nudging.

Sooner or later, we all need some help. You're wise to seek out a professional who can help you gain clarity and direction. I know you're struggling now, but I'm excited about how much better things can be for you. Modern life is certainly generating a lot of anxiety & depression, and taking a heavy toll. I'm here to help you get through these difficult times. My primary focus is helping young and midlife professionals get grounded, gain clarity, and build strong confidence in themselves. My approach to therapy is compassionate, interactive, focused on new perspectives, working through emotions, and skill building.

Your anxiety, depression or trauma is an integral part of your story, but doesn’t define you and doesn't need to control your life any more. Using a trauma informed, client centered approach I want to help you find relief from the noise in your head. Together, we will highlight your innate resiliencies and empower you to build up your inner strength and confidence to live your life in the present, while honoring your past and feeling hopeful about the future. In addition to providing trauma informed therapy for adults, I also have a passion for working with kids and their parents.

The approach I take as a therapist draws from both cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices. In short, people learn how to relate to their thoughts differently and as a result additionally gain insight, problem solving skills, communication skills, increased sense of control over feeling states and improved relationships. Through processes such as examination of your perceptions and beliefs, increasing your ability to be present in the here and now, exploration of your values, development of new skills and resolution of previous trauma, I've had the privilege of witnessing my clients experience symptom reduction and profound change.

I am passionate about the power of deep listening and attunement and how it can aid in one’s self-discovery and growth towards wholeness. Drawing inspiration from a relational approach, contemplative theory, and depth psychology, I find the greatest love in providing a compassionate and non-judgmental space where individuals can explore and return to their most authentic expression of Self.

Life is stressful and it can feel like it’s too much. Sometimes, we feel stuck, overwhelmed, depressed, anxious or we are having life transitions that seem really difficult. Maybe you are in a couplehood that feels tense, argumentative and disconnected. I work in a partnership with my clients both individuals and couples to improve their lives and mental health. What I offer is a non judgmental space where clients can express concerns, set healthy boundaries, increase coping skills and find realistic solutions to stress, anxiety and depression through gentle guidance.

No one comes to therapy when everything is amazing. Often, things come up that were not what we planned. Or we have feelings that are stronger than we imagined and we don't quite know how to handle them. Maybe you feel like your normal coping strategies are no longer doing the trick. Maybe therapy can help. Daisy lovingly and curiously approaches the issues that are getting in your way. She invites you to walk side by side as you move through things together.

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" - Lao Tzu. Having the courage to work on yourself to reach your full potential does not have to happen alone. As a psychologist and cancer survivor, I've experienced physical and emotional challenges that led to positive and healthy lifestyle changes. I hope to use these experiences to help others on their journey with emotional issues, chronic medical conditions, grief, life transition issues, or those who want to improve nutrition and lifestyle. I hope to walk this journey with you in order to facilitate growth and healing.

My focus is young adults 18+, college students and LGBTQ+ folx. I have extensive experience working with college students. I aim to support and guide those who may be struggling with adjusting to college, coping with depression and/or anxiety, forming their identity, exploring their sexuality, working on relational patterns, etc. Decreasing stigma of mental illness as well as suicide prevention and LGBTQ+ rights are important causes to me as an individual, LGBTQ+ ally and professional. I am also a sex-positive, poly and kink-knowledgable therapist, who is not here to judge you. :)

I work with clients who want to dive deeper into long-standing, challenging patterns in their lives. By listening to the ways the soul is speaking, I work with clients who are ready to cultivate deeper meaning and purpose in their lives as well as step into more connected and fulfilling relationships. I enjoy using dream material, as well as astrology, in my practice to add to the scope of talk therapy. I am finishing up my masters in counseling psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute and will graduate in March 2023.

Hello, my legal name is Joseph but you can call me Tommy. My work as a therapist is mostly informed by Attachment Theory and I currently work with individuals ranging from young adults to seniors. As human beings, we are meant to seek connection with others. Connection with a compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable therapist is one of the best ways to develop a more secure sense of attachment to the world around you. This connection can lead to the positive, long-term change you are seeking.

Thank you for taking the first step toward optimal health & well-being. I work with people who are ready to address an issue or an area of their life that is so intimate, they haven't shared it with anyone. Sometimes, not even with the person "closest" to them.
