Your decision to evaluate therapists today is a strong sign change is underway. I work to help individual adults and teens, couples, and families navigate relationship difficulties, behavioral issues, and unresolved emotional needs. My office is a place where clients can speak openly about their hopes, needs, and fears - with warmth, care, and authentic feedback in return. Our work can treat symptoms of grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. Emotionally focused repair, cognitive insight, and concrete skills development can each play a role. My training emphasizes clients' experience in family, work, and other systems.

For over a decade, we've worked with adults in their 20s and 30s to help them overcome the emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges of young adulthood. We have a keen understanding of the demands on today's young adults to succeed academically, socially, and in the workplace. Our goal is to support you in developing necessary skills and resources as you pursue personal, career, and academic success. When work or school performance is a concern, our focus is on the intersection of mental health issues with these needs, two aspects of a person's life that are rarely addressed simultaneously or understood as interdependent.

We specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which has been scientifically proven to be highly effective for anxiety, depression, and other problems we treat (please see our website for the full list). CBT is the best available drug-free approach for most psychological problems; it is active, solution-focused, and relatively short-term. We work collaboratively with our clients to make real improvements in their lives. CBT focuses on developing skills for coping with difficult emotions and for changing unhelpful patterns of behavior.

Starobin Counseling collectively offers over 30 years of experience providing counseling for children, teens, adults, couples, and families. We regard relationships as central to the therapeutic process and help people repair and strengthen their relationships. Some challenges in life are purely personal, but most problems express themselves in the intersections with other people. Therapy helps people understand feelings, listen to their best thinking, and helps people gain new or alternative perspectives. We help people strengthen their own vitality and repair difficult ruptures to unlock their capacity for meaningful connections.

So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.

Have you been experiencing increased anxiety, depression, fear or loneliness? Are you struggling with emotions and behaviors you would like to change? As humans, we need connections to others for encouragement, especially when we are suffering from the unexpected challenges this world brings. With support and feedback we can find meaning and purpose even through painful events. I combine Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, DBT, to provide a safe, confidential environment where you are free to explore, empower yourself and develop into the person you want to be.

Your anxiety and stress may show up in different ways: panic attacks, "derealization," obsessive thoughts, relationship issues, or even with chronic IBS/abdominal pain. A cycle is born when these symptoms then trigger more anxiety/fear. It can be exhausting to focus on, and these problems can really affect your everyday life and choices. Trying to get rid of, avoid, or change the anxiety with breathing exercises, journaling, or other techniques can paradoxically make it all worse and perpetuate or exacerbate the discomfort.

"Adulting" can be complicated. If you're in your teens or twenties, you know what I'm talking about - the pressure is real. Yes, it can be a time of new and exciting experiences, but it can also be fraught with anxiety, confusion, heartbreak, and unexpected forks in the road. Whether you're struggling with problems at school or work, difficult relationships, or just the sense that something is missing from your life, therapy may help. Creating lasting and meaningful change can be challenging but you don't have to do it alone.

My speciality lends me the ability to understand active duty military, military families, veterans, and government employees. I love helping military members and veterans re-integrate back into life after deployment or separation as well as other common issues related to active duty service. I have extensive experience in helping military spouses and children with issues unique to the military lifestyle. I also enjoy helping military couples learn to communicate better with one another, especially during the post-deployment reintegration process.

Currently accepting clients. I support women seeking to escape their anxious lives to experience a state of calm + peace. While you want to live a meaningful life, you feel held back by negative thoughts, tradition, old conditioning and fear. However, you know that there is something more for you if you can just tap into who you really are and listen to that voice of truth that lives within you. You can break your need for validation and approval. You can stop being limited by depression, anxiety, lack of focus and lack of emotional control.

I enjoy challenges and diverse people and helping those who are in difficult situations. I specialize in responding to crises, trauma and workplace problems. So ideally I approach each situation, person or group with an open mind and a non-anxious-presence. I strive to provide that same level of confidence and trust to people in therapy. My strength is understanding complex systems (the big picture) and finding the little steps to improve things. If you have the courage to change; I’ll work to help you make your life easier using a program of change or the path that works best for you.

Welcome, I truly believe that therapy is a brave and courageous choice. I strive to create a warm, empathetic, and safe environment for each client that chooses to work with me. I have a special expertise working with both adolescents and adults with mood disorders. Our relationship will be used as an element of change. Often, I will utilize aspects of our relationship to highlight barriers to change and provide a warm and directive approach to push you towards growth. My approach within our therapeutic relationship tends to be more collaborative and I commonly use interventions including mindfulness, CBT, DBT and attachment theory.
