***Accepting New Clients*** Finding a good therapist is like shopping for a good pair of shoes. Why, you might ask. It’s all about the fit. You usually choose shoes that are most comfortable and suit you best. Whether you may have gone to a therapist before or have never been – whether you had awful experiences in the past or none at all. Successful therapy is about finding the right fit; about finding a relationship where you have a safe space to bring any and all of your feelings and challenges.
Hello, welcome! I am Mara, a Licensed Mental Health specialist with over 8 years of experience working with individuals with mental health and substance use disorder. I have a great passion for what I do. I enjoy helping people meet their life goals by providing guidance and support. I specialize in Motivational Interviewing, CBT, and Solution Focused Therapy.

If the last few years have left you feeling anxious, isolated, sad, or uncertain what to do next, you are not alone. Sometimes when we reach a blocked road we need help to get through. Psychotherapy can help you understand yourself better, act more effectively to achieve your goals, and manage any troubling symptoms that are keeping you from living your best life.
My client's needs are my priority. I partner with you to find the best possible way to approach treatment and progress. I listen and hear you, in order to customize a person-centered treatment plan - our sessions will be tailored towards your individual needs
Feeling “overwhelmed”? “Stuck”? Or, do you feel like the same painful experiences are on “repeat”? Many of us can answer “yes” to one or all of these questions at different times in our lives. These “stuck places” and old patterns developed from a particular need at one point in time, but they just aren’t working anymore. My approach to therapy begins with this understanding – that we do what we do for a reason. In our work together, these “stuck places” can become a wellspring of hope, healing, self-compassion and freedom for you.

As both a former client and a current practitioner in mental health, I understand how difficult it can be to move forward when you feel stuck or lost in a sea of depression or anxiety. I primarily utilize ACT, CBT, and DBT to help my clients, integrating these evidence-based practices based on the unique needs of each individual. I firmly believe that each client is the expert on their own life and I am here to help them become a more confident expert. As a result, I work best with clients who desire want to be active participants in their therapy in order to be more successful in their lives outside of therapy.

People want and need to be understood. Without moments of understanding, life can feel mundane and confusing. I am passionate about helping clients in discovering and honoring goals and values, while navigating life stressors. Through providing a validating, genuinely authentic safe space, clients will build a sense of trust, resilience, and grounding within themselves.
I have a passion working with adolescents and adults to take the next step of advancing in their life goals. Therapy is a space where you can unload your burden and have an unbiased practitioner to lend a listening ear and provide support and tools as you go through life's challenges. No one person's story is the same and how we approach the barriers that are presented are just as unique.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW-C, CCTS-I, TF-CBT , BSP
Welcome, my name is Mirissa Jackson, Licensed Certified Social Work- Clinical with Sondermind. I currently work remote from Tokyo, Japan. I have five years experience as a mental health professional and four years as a clinical therapist. I am eager to engage black women in the process of healing institutional, generational, and systematic trauma. In session with me, I allow my clients to take off the mask, the suit, the uniform and be their self. You will have an opportunity to explore change and address issues that are most important to you. Together we will develop a realistic plan for change that makes sense.
I believe that true healing happens when a challenge is addressed holistically, and when the client is seen as a whole person. Therapy with me is a safe space to explore your connection with any uncomfortable emotions, disruptive thoughts and behavioral patterns, as well as, complicated relationships with the individuals in your life. I am especially passionate about working with those who suffer with pain and trauma from the past and who are interested in exploring how it affects their everyday life.
I see 3 types of clients: private, organizational, and those experiencing literal homelessness. Most private clients have some kind of spiritual homelessness, or other trauma, leaving them in a liminal space; without an easy relationship with a particular denomination, deity, or faith. Still, they seek meaning, community, even hope. Some came from evangelical backgrounds, or fundamentalist cults. Many identify as LGBTQIA2+. Many are People of Color. Some work as priests, pastors, spiritual directors, or took religious vows. Most organizational clients are justice-engaged, usually in homelessness; seeking to avoid or heal Burnout.
