My treatment approach is person-centered. I bring an empathic, genuine, active and non-judgmental attitude to my encounter with each client to facilitate a safe and collaborative exploration of contributing factors to the problem (s) addressed in therapy, which in turn allows me to draw from interventions that best fit the client. My treatment philosophy is that the aim of psychotherapy is about helping clients feel better and to be empowered with gained awareness of themselves and their life situation (s) and skills with which to lead a more satisfying life.
Are you having difficulty with the relationships in your life? Are you struggling to make progress with your goals? Is it hard for you to find meaning in your daily living? I firmly believe that before any psychological theory or technique can be helpful, a therapeutic relationship must be established. I see the relationship between a client and therapist as a collaborative partnership. Whether you are an adult, adolescent, or family, I seek to create a safe, caring, and non-judgmental environment for us to explore identity, patterns, choices, and opportunities for growth and change.

A good fit between client and therapist is one of the best factors in successful therapy. When a client feels safe with a non-judgmental therapist open communication can occur. I have both a supportive and informational approach so that you will feel heard and understood as well as get information that you need to make things better. If you are having marital discord, I counsel couples as well. Each of you will be given the space to feel heard and understood to get to the root of the tension. A deeper knowledge of each other as well as learning about effective communication is necessary for the improvement of the relationship.
Life can be difficult, but you don't need to struggle through it alone. I can help you cope with Stress, Fear, Anxiety, Depression, as well as Substance abuse issues. I will help you resolve Male and/or Female Relationship issues as well as those "stuck" feelings or not knowing where you want to go in your life. Together, we can change your feelings of being Overwhelmed to one of confidently handling your life and its challenges. I can also assist you in resolving the Traumas interfering with your current life plans.

Building on the strengths of each client, I provide a warm, accepting environment in which to address inner and outer obstacles. My clients are typically dealing with difficult transitions or emotional states that are preventing them from enjoying life to the fullest. I work collaboratively to understand and get to the root of distressing thoughts and feelings. My style is compassionate and solution-focused, and is individualized to each person's needs. I teach clients mind-body strategies to empower them to handle challenges, and to cultivate positive emotional states.
Life does have many stressful issues like loss, relationship dynamics, family conflict, work concerns, divorce, and medical crisis. These types of stressors greatly influence our ability to cope with our everyday responsibilities. My focus in therapy is to identify your current stressors and how they can either be resolved or develop the ability to decrease the severity of symptoms. Together, we will develop goals and steps tailored to you. I primarily work with couples with a Gottman based approach. I am also able to treat adult mental health issues regarding depression, anxiety and I welcome the opportunity to work with you!
While working with clients, I utilize an active, flexible, strength based approach incorporating both cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic techniques. My goals are to enable clients to utilize therapy to make important and lasting changes. I provide a confidential, safe and respectful space to work on issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, grief and bereavement and communication. Therapy is a place to both heal and grow and I work in collaboration with clients to facilitate that process. I have advanced training in interpersonal and relational issues.
I specialize in depression and anxiety, communication skills, couples counseling, grief and loss, single parenting, career counseling, and chronic illness. As a Resident in Counseling, I tend to use aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as we work together to help clients see immediate connections between their thoughts and their current actions. This often allows for acknowledgement and change to occur sooner, and clients can experience the satisfaction from the results of their hard work.

Hello, I’m Michelle. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 10 years of experience providing mental health services. I work with adults and adolescents and adults dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, life stressors and relationship issues. I enjoy partnering with my clients to improve their quality of life and meet individualized goals. My goal is for clients to feel understood, supported, and empowered.
In my 10+ years of being a therapist I have found that the traditional face to face support works wonders for some, but is not a good fit for others. Some of my clients have found sitting in one place for 45 minutes a challenge, or feel too much pressure to truly open up and share what they are thinking and feeling. With this in mind, I hope that my practice will serve as a new space for people seeking support in a slightly different manner. I hope to use "walk and talk therapy" to give an outlet to those who would usually outright avoid counseling, or not fully invest as it doesn't work for them.
Exploring therapy is not an easy decision; therefore it is my mission to make therapy as open, comfortable, and effective as possible for each client. The first goal I have for each individual entering my practice is to establish an environment of comfort and safety. For those interested, therapy animals are available to provide additional support throughout the experience. Each person who enters my practice is embraced as an individual, and the therapeutic experience is tailored specifically to best meet each person's needs.

Hi! I'm Pooja! I am passionate about empowering clients to understand their thoughts, emotions and behavioral patterns better while working towards identifying the root cause to their concerns.

Or perhaps you struggle to set healthy boundaries for yourself when it comes to relational dynamics. I help clients remove emotional and mental barriers while building resilience in the process. If you're looking to "break the cycle" of negative thinking, hopelessness, and unhealthy life choices, let's chat!
