*Teletherapy avail. during COV-19 crisis. Hello, my name is Dr. Pam Stein. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 24 years of private practice experience. My hope for you in therapy is to achieve (or return to) your highest level of functioning and happiness. To this end, we will work hard together to alleviate, as needed: anxiety/fears, depression/sadness, self-doubt, stress, emotional/mood instability, and relationship patterns which are not working for you (e.g., difficulty with trust). I additionally have had great success helping people better manage their Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2) to stay/become as healthy as possible.

I'm a thoughtful reflective therapist who is intensely interested in people and their problems. I provide a comfortable, quiet, empathic environment, in which we can listen and sort out your needs in order to meet your goals and concerns. I'm a trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist
I work primarily with adolescents and adults. I believe people, at different points in their lives, may need support overcoming hurdles or may just be feeling "stuck." I enjoy working with clients who have concerns in many areas, including depression, relationships, identity, adjustment, anxiety and worry, stress and life management, or family concerns. I value my work as a psychologist and approach each client with respect for their own unique identity and the concerns they seek therapy for.
I’m Melissa Johnson, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I offer therapy services to adults who are experiencing life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, addiction recovery, and the courageous journey of addressing and healing trauma. Additionally, I offer clinical supervision to social workers, facilitate a peer consultation group, and teach a course on Conflict Management to individuals and organizations.
The Challenge for anyone who wants to change is to find the inspiration and motivation to start and then the confidence to continue. Once you do, you will find that the blessings far outweigh any hardships it took to get there.
I enjoy working with all client types, but take a particular interest in working together with women to help in the process of building and furthering their individual level of internal strength, confidence and empowerment. Working with family systems, parenting coaching, and partners dealing with divorce or separation is also a passion of mine.
You’ve thought about therapy, but you hear a voice inside that is hesitant. It asks, "Will they judge my sexual orientation, my gender identity, my dating life, my choices, or my views on faith? Will they see me as an entire person with a complex web of interests, hopes, and desires; or will they just see me as my presenting problems? Will they work with me to reach creative solutions; or will they just label me with a diagnosis and try to ‘fix’ me with a workbook?” You deserve a therapist who celebrates your individuality, who views YOU as the expert of your own experience, and who honors the unique parts of your life.
My goal is to help young adults and adults understand themselves better and find more effective ways to cope with stressors. I approach therapy from an attachment-based and interpersonal lens, and I often focus on how past relationships impact present emotions and experiences. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of therapy, and I strive to create a sense of safety that also fosters growth. I also offer psychological assessment services for individuals 14 and up who believe they may be struggling with ADHD or learning concerns.
Hi, I am April! Thanks for visiting my profile. Why should you consider receiving counseling services with me? Well, an important aspect of my service quality is that I believe in accepting people as they are and assisting them with becoming a better them! You can expect to be treated with respect and great care while receiving treatment services during our therapeutic partnership. My goal in providing counseling services is to establish a working alliance with my clients to assist with their development of a life-coping tool box that will provide them a more healthy emotional/mental balance in their lives to achieve a New Life!
While I specialize in parenting techniques for young children, I also enjoy working with children, teens, and adults who feel "stuck," or are having difficulty managing family and social conflicts. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a powerful agent of change, and aim to provide a warm, safe, and casual space for clients to express themselves. I also encourage creative outlets for processing emotional issues, which might include drawing, painting or any other evidenced-based expressive techniques that relieve distress.
I help LGBTQ+ folks who struggle with anxiety, depression, and trauma to improve relationships with themselves and others. Perhaps you struggle with confidence issues, overthinking, depressive symptoms, & want a deeper connection. Maybe you're queer, trans, or gender variant and are ready to start working on stuff that gets in the way of your best life. Your goal is to improve self-esteem and self-love (living in the South ain't easy!). You're ready to work on patterns and pain that prevent you from connecting to others. Maybe you're feeling stuck and unsure how to come out, or need some support loving an LGBTQ+ person in your life.
Everyone feels stressed sometimes, but what happens when it becomes too intense and takes center stage in your life? Maybe chronic and persistent worry about a stressful situation or relationship is taking control of your thoughts, or you are struggling to heal from a past trauma. Maybe you find yourself feeling physical symptoms from anxiety, like a fast heart rate, feeling nervous, difficulty sleeping, and feeling fatigued. Do you find yourself having difficulty feeling calm and at peace?

If you are motivated to understand the conscious and unconscious forces and meanings that shape your experience and relationships; If you feel you are without choices; if you are struggling with questions of self-worth; if you are grieving; if you feel hurt, betrayed or abandoned, I encourage you to take the brave first step toward your self by entering into this safe space of non-judgment. I desire to create a safe and therapeutic space where individuals feel the safety to be seen and known.
Our practice is dedicated to serving marginalized and diverse people, especially LGBTQ+ individuals.
