I work together with adult individuals, couples and families experiencing adjustments to major life transitions resulting in anxiety and depression, including women with perinatal and postpartum concerns, grief and loss, and low self esteem.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over a decade of experience working with individuals, couples and families facing the challenges life presents when dealing with change and transition. Psychotherapy offers a safe place to explore difficult emotions, gain new perspective and heal from painful losses. My approach combines elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, family systems theory, narrative therapy and psychodynamics. I place great emphasis on the therapeutic relationship with my clients and believe that the right personal "fit" is crucial to a successful therapeutic relationship and, in turn, to facilitating greater self-awareness and personal growth.

As a woman of color, I understand the many challenges of the systemically oppressive environment around us, and strive to bring joy, warmth, and acceptance into every session.
I specialize in working with clients on concerns related to anxiety, depression, perfectionism, personal identity, and more. Whether it relates to gender and sexual identity, empowerment and safety, physical and emotional boundaries, or the many deeply personal life choices we face regularly, I rely on building a strong collaborative alliance with my clients at whichever pace feels most comfortable for them. I welcome questions of any kind, so feel free to reach out to me via email at incia@theexpansivegroup.com. I also recognize finding the right therapist can be difficult, so I also offer complimentary 15-minute consultations.

Motherhood is a long process with a lot of twists and turns. Here we provide counseling to women of color who are navigating the demands of motherhood. Many moms say they have a hard time with work-life balance--they can't seem to find the right formula. Being a mother is hard, but there are ways you can learn to prioritize yourself and still give your family the love and care they need. It is important for mothers to fill their cups, so they can be their best selves for their children and partners. Moms that engage in regular self-care and learn how to identify their stressors.

I specialize in helping people recover from anxiety. I also work with women who suffer from depression, trauma, and complex relationship problems of all kinds. Too often, worries and fears get the best of us and control our decisions. Instead of living the life we want, we end up making choices in life and in relationships that are rooted in self-doubt, anxiety, and worry. I provide a safe, empathetic, nonjudgmental space in which we work together to reduce fears and develop new, authentic ways of engaging in relationships.

"I see your fear, and it's big. I also see your courage, and it's bigger. We can do hard things." My practice specializes in providing individual therapy to women of all ages who are struggling with attachment trauma, anxiety, divorce, motherhood, and relationship conflict. With specializations in perinatal mental health, insecure attachment, anxiety, and trauma, our treatment course can help you realize all the answers you’ve ever needed come from within you. Sometimes what we need most is for someone to show up and authentically bear witness to our struggle. That is how I view my role as a therapist.

I am also skilled in working with men and women who have grown up in homes with the disease of alcoholism and mental health illness.
Welcome! My practice is based on the belief that life brings us many challenges and at times we can get stuck. Feeling stuck can cause us to feel uncomfortable symptoms - anxiety, depression, anger, etc. I believe that therapy is a process where you can gain tools to address those challenges, determine what needs to be changed, work towards making those changes while navigating all the thoughts, feelings and emotions that may come up in the process. I strive to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental environment where clients can work towards living a value-driven, meaningful life.

Everyone feels anxiety, depression, or other difficult feelings at different points in their life. When painful feelings are persistent and life begins to feel difficult and unmanageable in a more ongoing way that is the time to consider going to therapy. For the last 20 years, I have helped adult men and women and teens and their parents improve their mood, reduce stress, increase self confidence, cultivate satisfying relationships, and make lasting changes in their lives. I work hard to provide a climate where you can feel safe and understood so you can begin to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Pregnant women & those receiving chemotherapy.
Biofeedback training is an evidence-based, short-term, mind-body therapy in which clients learn to control physical responses to stress that are often involuntary and can feel uncontrollable. During a session with Dr. Pabst, she will utilize biofeedback sensors to scientifically track in-session breath patterns, muscle tension, perspiration, and heart-rate so you can receive visual and/or auditory feedback on your physical responses. As a result, you can see your innate stress responses in real-time, learn what triggers them and ultimately have the ability to self-regulate.
