Stephanie DiRaimondo,

M.S. Ed., NCC, MHC-I

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.

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.

[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.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. I work to ensure that my clients receive the most thoughtful, supportive, and empathetic treatment in a safe and comfortable environment. I use a welcoming, nonjudgmental, and accepting style to better understand YOU and your concerns. Therapy offers an opportunity to explore, grow, and ultimately learn to cope with challenging life situations and feelings.

[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.

Jordanna Blake Garren, MSW

[Not currently accepting new clients]. Therapy to me is not a one-size-fits-all process, which is why I use a person-centered and strength-based approach to help my clients see their unique strengths and shift learned, unhelpful beliefs to beliefs that promote positivity and growth. My goal with my clients is to get to the root of their behaviors and feelings, learn how to process those feelings, and create a new perspective on life that allows them to live their most authentic, beautiful life! It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client.

When facing difficult times, you do not need to feel alone; it can be very advantageous to have someone by your side who is understanding, nonjudgmental, and compassionate. Taking the opportunity to seek out help is a sign of strength; it is an admirable attempt to try to live a more fulfilling life for yourself. I can help you to discover the useful tools that lie within you in order to cope with life’s troubles, enabling you to have the kind of life you desire.

Markella Louros, LCSW

[Not currently accepting new clients]. One of the most courageous things we can do is to begin to understand our own story. What often precedes healing, however, is profound confusion and discomfort which deters us from delving deeper within. The process of growth is often accompanied by fear of the unknown and thus, can appear a daunting task. But you are not alone. My goal is to walk alongside you as you come to know yourself and navigate the path to a happier, healthier life. More importantly, what are your goals? What makes you feel safe? Therapy strengthens our insight by compassionately confronting ourselves with questions we have never dared to ask ourselves before.

[Not currently accepting new clients].  I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, so I employ a range of modalities to help people understand and heal from their pain, improve their self-worth,  and navigate their lives with more balance and serenity. I believe that a comfortable, supportive, and non-judgmental environment is vital for healing and growth. I pride myself on being easy to talk to, warm, and familiar.

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.

[Limited Availability]. People tell me I am easy to talk to.  That comes in handy when you're a psychotherapist.  One of the most important things to me is that my client feels comfortable. Just as a flower cannot grow without soil, water or sunlight, I believe a person cannot grow in therapy if they do not feel comfortable and connected with their therapist.
