I am inspired and humbled by the stories of people's lives - and I'm here to help when life gets challenging. If you're in the midst of a life transition or are feeling directionless - we can explore purpose. If life seems too hectic or feels increasingly hopeless - we'll work together to identify the underlying issue and explore solutions. If it feels like you and your teenager are stuck or if the relationship between your spouse/partner is a source of stress - we can work on communication. When you’re feeling overwhelmed and aren't sure how things can change, I can help.

My Name is Lul Haji-Mohamed. I have 13+ years of experience in the mental health field. My philosophy is to meet people where they are at and work in partnership. I recognizes that an open and honest relationship between client and therapist can produce a positive effect in the therapeutic process and the level of acceptance demonstrated. I strives to reduce anxiety in order to increase engagement and connection, create a safe environment for discussion, and impart knowledge and facts about the various options and their implications. I enjoy to see people reach their full potential and thrive.
I believe that healing is a communal process and am here to hold space with you on your journey to find fulfilling relationships with both yourself and others. I work in the trans and queer community and am especially passionate about issues relating to disordered eating, exercise, and body image. Together we will explore what's "beneath" the eating disorder behaviors, acknowledge the societal systems that often affect the relationship with the body, and find routes of healing that feel genuine to you. My work with clients often includes creating rituals, spiritual practices, and embracing metaphors and storytelling.
NEW Virtual Group: https://bit.ly/mindfulpathgroup. Things feel like they are always your fault, like something is wrong with you–you are flawed, broken, and it seems things will never be good for you in life. How much longer can you keep going like this? Emotions are stronger for you than other people and you can't seem to get what you want or make anyone happy, no matter how hard you try. Some days you have to stop caring just to go on with life. You are tired of screwing up your relationships, losing friends, and people asking "Why are you acting like that?" Be different, act different, feel different – if only it were that easy!
I think effective therapy begins with empathy and authenticity. Empathy means I’m going to really hear you. I create a welcoming and safe place where you can share and unload your heavy emotional burdens - where you can be honest about your struggles and your hopes - where we can talk honestly and frankly about meaningful solutions.
Hello! I’m Arianne (she/her). I specialize in working with people who are navigating anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions & communication challenges. I strive to create a warm, safe & non-judgmental space for clients to explore what they're doing well, what could be contributing to their current stress/pain & what they would like to add to their life to achieve their goals. As a white, heterosexual, cisgender woman, I am actively engaging in deepening my understanding of how these identities & society have shaped my experiences. I am passionate about exploring and celebrating all the different aspects of one’s identity.
I focus on helping you build and maintain healthy relationships; personal, professional, romantic and sexual relationships. This includes individual counseling, couples counseling, and sex therapy. In individual counseling we can talk through trauma, negative thoughts, adjustments, questions of identity, happiness, or life goals. If you are having questions about intimacy, desire, shame, kink, sexual performance or desire, sex therapy may be right for you. You may be feeling a loss of connection, a wall of miscommunication and a mountain of unmet needs within your relationship and I will help you find that connection and joy.
*NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS- March 2022* I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and psychotherapist. I specialize in working with BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) individuals, queer & trans/non-binary individuals, transracial adoptees, as well as others who have experienced individual or community trauma or marginalization.
Are you your own worst critic? Are you often down on yourself and struggling to feel confident or worthwhile? Is your stress, anxiety or depression impacting your relationships, work or health? I can help. My calm, caring and non-judgmental approach to individual therapy creates a safe environment for you to feel heard and validated. You will learn practical tools right away to help you regain balance and reclaim the joy in your life.
My approach is built on compassion, care and respect for the experiences and identities that make you who you are. Mindfulness and the power of relationship guide my work, to support clients dealing with anxiety, depression, life-transitions, trauma, grief, health issues, or other challenges. If you have suffered traumatic experiences, want to be more fully at home inside yourself or with others; if you are trying to navigate a world that too easily permits oppression, or want to grow the kernels of wholeness (even if not yet apparent) already within you, I hope to be able to work together.
I am a straightforward seasoned therapist that will work to get to know you, where you are at, and provide a safe place for you. I want to get to the bottom of your struggle, but not just that- I'll want you to face your strengths and be empowered. I will challenge you out of a place of compassion and humor. I will be alongside you in this journey for as long as it takes. I'll help you through your trauma, relationships, peer pressure, etc., we all have our stories...
I will bring curiosity, humor, honesty, and genuine empathy to any person, couple, or family who want to create something different in their life. I am a relational/systemic therapist, which means I believe people are influenced and shaped by the world, and culture(s), around them. I approach this work from a social justice lens, and love working with people who are ready to address the many variables that impact their feelings, patterns, and responses.
I'm a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and an EFT Couples Therapist, and I'm passionate about supporting folks in embodying their personal power. I utilize deep emotional attunement between partners to promote understanding, and I work with the unconscious to understand barriers to growth with both individuals and couples. With couples, I support each partner in communicating their truths while developing a new language to understand the negative pattern that leads to escalation or collapse. Together we will use mindfulness to understand what's happening in the moment and so I can learn what supports you best.
Struggling to find balance in your life? Having difficulty quieting your mind? I can help! My approach to therapy is client centered and holistic, I will listen empathetically and address issues with openess and compassion. We will work together to identify the underlying emotional and belief patterns that are keeping you stuck, and build a pathway to living vibrantly again! I am passionate about helping others build confidence and self-esteem, as well as guiding them toward a balance between mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW #23383) and psychotherapist, with a focus on issues related to human sexuality. Connection, intimacy, desire, love, and joy are the things in life that enrich our human experience. When we struggle with these, life can feel very lonely. I believe that you have endless potential but sometimes life can get in the way. My hope is to get some of the muck out of the way so you can be your best self on any given day.

My greatest assets as a therapist: I quickly conceptualize problems due to years of experience, and am astute at assessment and solutions. I have great relationships with my clients, am non-judgmental, and easy to talk with. I'm empathetic, and give practical, well-reasoned advice with a great sense-of-humor. Few issues are new to me because of my varied experience. People I do best with: Mature people looking for help with all types of issues. Couples who want to improve relationships, change maladaptive behavior, and communicate better.
CURRENTLY UNABLE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults in working through trauma—with specific interest in early childhood/complex trauma and sexual trauma—attachment, dissociation, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, neurodivergence, and issues relating to food and body image.
I work with children, adolescents and adults in both English and Spanish. My approach--customized for each person’s needs--focuses on creating safe, supportive relationships, opening space to explore difficulties and paving the way for real change. I have over a decade experience helping people experiencing anxiety, depression, adjustment, identity development and trauma build healthier, fulfilling lives. In therapy, I take a relational, psychodynamic approach that focuses on process and using the therapeutic relationship to reach clinical goals.
