LMHC, M.S. Ed., NCC
I provide a safe and compassionate environment for clients to examine their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When an individual is struggling with their mental health, it impacts their ability to maintain healthy relationships with loved ones, & overall daily functioning. I have a passion for developing a strong therapeutic relationship in order to ensure the utmost empathy and unconditional positive regard for my clients. Together, we will work towards understanding and regulating emotions, focusing on the self, and engaging in coping strategies that promote a positive, healthier mind, and stronger self-esteem.
Martyna Wegrzynowska, LMHC-LP
Psychotherapy is a unique approach to a conversation about living. It is a constructive and helpful way to identify your goals. Anyone interested in finding a better way to look at themselves is welcome to develop new techniques, which we may discover together. As a Mental Health Counselor, I prioritize identifying new strategies that can provide you with a sense of balance and control that can benefit your emotional well-being and overall health. Counseling is a chance to focus on yourself, listen to your inner needs, and think about how to live better. My hope is that my clients can find answers to questions they were perhaps never aware they needed to be asked.
Deana Bologna, LMHC
[Not currently accepting new clients]. I am a person-centered cognitive behavior therapist, which means I help you connect the dots between your thoughts, feelings, and choices. I will listen to you with a compassionate ear and help you think critically about the story you are telling not only about your past but about your future.
Jamie Worthman, LMSW
When people experience emotional pain or are struggling with their relationship to themselves, it can affect all areas of their lives. My passion is bringing understanding and healing to people struggling with these wounds. I help my clients find healthy perceptions of themselves, grow in self-worth, understand the origins of their wounds, and overcome the strong emotions that they evoke.
Jill Berger, LMSW
[Not currently accepting new clients]. Every person has had difficult moments in their life. This is one of the things that bonds us as human beings. We all have things in common, such as feeling the same emotions, dealing with similar situations, or having similar ways of thinking. Though we share these commonalities, each person has their own experiences that are unique to them. This is the perspective I take when it comes to my therapy practice. Each client brings their own unique set of needs and experiences, which needs a unique and individualistic therapy approach, different from the next client.
Amy Juliano, LMSW
I am passionate about helping clients develop positive coping skills for when their mental health is impacting their day-to-day life. Life can be full of challenges and my goal is to support clients and help them build self-esteem, reduce anxiety, and strengthen coping mechanisms. Therapy is a space where clients can focus on their mental health and process their feelings. I create a safe and supportive environment to explore mental health concerns and challenges that arise.
Chrissy Makris, LCSW
[Not currently accepting new clients]. Do you feel weighed down by feelings of anxiety of depression? Have you been struggling over the past few months, or even years, and are looking for someone to turn to you? Well, you have come to the right place. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker committed to helping adults, children, adolescents and couples find their path forward. I have been practicing for over 12 years and like to use a mix of psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness that is tailored to each individual. My work is person-centered and focuses on helping others develop healthy ways to manage stress, resolve conflict and heal from trauma in a safe and warm environment.
Danielle Berg, LMHC
[Not currently accepting new clients]. Being human is hard. In addition to daily challenges, many of us weren’t shown how to feel and express our emotions, or how to communicate effectively with others. We may not have learned what healthy love looks and feels like, or how to care for and accept ourselves—because often, our caregivers hadn’t learned how to either. As a result, we often find ourselves experiencing painful emotions such as shame, anger, longing, worry, or hopelessness. Therapy is an opportunity to explore our experiences with curiosity and kindness, allowing us to gain insight into, make meaning of, and heal from the burdens we carry.
Debora Gomes, LMHC
[Not currently accepting new clients]. Life often comes with many unexpected challenges and we can often feel overwhelmed by big feelings and life events. Sometimes this can lead us to feeling stuck, not knowing which steps to take to move forward in life. I create a safe and supportive environment where we can explore life’s challenges together. My goal is to help guide you through processing your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and learn healthier ways of coping with life’s stressors.
Jacquelyn Hammel, LMHC
Perhaps you're feeling stuck, worried or afraid. Maybe you've never felt heard or understood. Maybe you've reached a point in your life that something doesn't feel right or something has to change and you're just not sure what to do. If this is the case, then talking it through in a safe space is the next step. I believe beginning therapy is a courageous step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible, no matter what challenges you may be facing.
Kevin Giannetti, LMHC
The first step is talking with someone compassionate who listens and tries to understand the world from your perspective. I know the importance of the relationship between therapist and client; therefore, I take a client-centered approach. Being able to tell your story and process it is the first step toward healing and initiating change. My approach is integrative, where I employ different therapeutic modalities to meet your unique needs best.
Yessica Chicas, LMSW
To me, emotional well-being means being able to deal with life on your terms and finding meaning/purpose in work, family, friendship, spirituality, and all other aspects of your life. As a bilingual, licensed Master social worker, I specialize in mental health counseling for children, teens, and adults. I work with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, social and emotional issues, child/parent relationships, parenting and behavior management.
Talia Gutlove, LCSW
[Not currently accepting new clients]. I am passionate about helping my clients develop healthy, fulfilling relationships and feel more confident, satisfied, and empowered in their individual and romantic lives. I have received specialized training in the treatment of sexual and relationship issues. I utilize a sex-positive approach to help individuals and couples work through their challenges, build greater intimacy, and improve their relationships.
Michele Lyons, LCSW
[Not currently accepting new clients]. When roadblocks, difficult emotions or major transitions present themselves in life, we have an opportunity to grow. Therapy is a space to gain perspective, examine our lives, and engage in purposeful movement forward. My passion as a therapist is to see individuals tap into their own unique gifts and strengths as they create a life that brings them meaning. I believe that one of the most essential parts of the therapy process is a sense of safety to be oneself while working with someone who genuinely cares. This creates a backdrop from which you can explore thoughts and emotions and thrive in the uncertainty of change.
Meredith Levy, LMFT
[Not currently accepting new clients]. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to be able to work on problems and stressors that they are currently facing. I will work with you to create a trusting therapeutic relationship, which will allow us to get to the root of your symptoms. I use mindfulness, empathy, respect, and sometimes even humor to help create this alliance. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I am trained to help you learn how your behavior affects not only yourself, but your relationship as part of a couple and family.
Jeraldine Fedoriw, LMSW
[Not currently accepting new clients]. I see therapy as food for the soul. It is nourishment that one receives by having the opportunity to open themselves and hear their own thoughts, words out loud so they can be heard, validated, understood. Therapy does not have to be complicated. It is a building block to strengthen our core and feel confident in our abilities to face the challenges.
Chelsea Carver, LMHC-LP
[Not currently accepting new clients]. As life moves forward with its many demands of time and energy, therapy is a place to slow down and reconnect with who you are and where you are right now. Together we can explore your experience both internally and externally, and process any hardships which may disrupt your sense of peace and ability to move towards the person and life you wish to embody. Words and emotions can carry deep meanings, so as a therapist, my priority is not only to listen, but to truly hear you. In that, I aim to support your path of discovering and becoming more aligned with what fulfills you most in your life.
Hope Ansanelli, LPMHC-LP
[Not currently accepting new clients]. “We are all in this together and there is no therapist and no person immune to the inherent tragedies of existence” (Irvin Yalom). Each and every one of us has a story that we develop and carry throughout our lives. Each and every one of us will experience hardships that can be part of living, i.e, life transitions, death of a loved one, loneliness, broken relationships, inequitable and/or abusive treatment, etc.,. And each of these experiences is interpreted by us and adds to the story of what our lives look like and how we believe it will unfold.
Estela Divino, LCSW-R
[Not currently accepting new clients]. I have been a licensed clinical social worker with over 30 years experience in various settings including long term care, palliative care and hospice, corporate consulting, and private-practice psychotherapy. Using mutually-agreed upon interventions and modalities to address depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, stress-management, bereavement, life transitions, and adjustment, I believe we can work together to start and keep you on the road to a better state of mental wellness.
Amie Markowtiz, LCSW
[Not currently accepting new clients]. Amie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Certified Personal Trainer, and a Trauma Informed Yoga Instructor. Her focus is on the connection between mental health and physical health, and she loves to help others find that connection. Amie has over 15 years of experience in social work and counseling including adoption and foster care (both placement and adult support), working with the homeless population, and helping the special needs community (especially children). She believes that we are all unique and individual, and her approach reflects that.
Kathleen Cavallo, LCSW
My approach targets developing healthy thought patterns and behaviors that will assist individuals in managing the demands and stressors of everyday life. With adequate tools, we can achieve positive changes, gain resourcefulness, and improve our ability to get our needs met. I bring an integrative and client centered approach to developing overall wellness. Therapy should focus on gaining new perspectives on your unique situation, allowing you to shift mindsets to better benefit your day to day life. I recognize that making the choice to engage in therapy is not always easy, and I try to create an atmosphere where people can feel safe and not judged.
