Hi, my name is Dr. Celia and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who opened my practice to help those who want to make a change in their lives. I specialize in working with trauma across the lifespan, which is how I know how significantly our brains and bodies can shift after a difficult event and/or a series of difficult life circumstances. Therapy is a space for us to explore how our past informs who we are. Being able to form meaningful relationships is a key part of our mental wellness, but it isn’t always so easy to do.

My goal is to help you find balance in your thought-life through an increase of self-awareness and initiate practical steps towards the life you want to see. I believe therapy works best when there can be collaboration between the therapist and client to create an environment where you can be honest about your needs and desires, heal from your experiences, and explore your feelings without guilt or pressure to perform or be accepted.

Pregnancy and childbirth can be thrilling, it can also be a time of stress, anxiety, depression, fear, and panic. The journey of motherhood is beautiful but scary, and often challenging. Motherhood can bring up many unexpected feelings of grief, shame, and resentment that can be difficult to navigate on our own. Reaching for the support of a therapist can help you to move through difficult seasons in motherhood and create an intentional mothering identity that feels authentic and joyful.

I treat older adolescents, adults and couples in psychotherapy. I use an interactive, psychodynamic approach in which I help clients understand how problems in their early relationships with their parents and siblings affect their current intimate and work relationships. I help individuals discover and work through underlying issues which are causing anxiety, depression, or other unwanted behaviors, such as eating disorders or relationship disturbances.

I offer practical, solution-focused goal-oriented psychotherapy aimed at timely symptom relief and problem resolution. My clients, being adults, determine their own therapy goals and agenda. My style is respectful, but interactive. I do not tell my clients what to do but I will always tell you honestly how I feel about the things that you present. I believe therapy should be time-limited and results-oriented, NOT a life-long continuous process. I believe that people can change, or else I would not be in this business. I delight in helping people master the tools which facilitate desired change.
