About My Clients
Our clients are women who appear to have everything going for them but are struggling with feeling disconnected, numb, overwhelmed or invisible. Most of the women we see have perfectionistic traits and have found success in multiple areas of their life but haven't figured out how to find peace, balance or a sense of a calm in their connections with others. Our clients are terrific at meeting the needs of family, friends, co-workers but can't do something kind for themselves.
My Background and Approach
Our therapists all have Master's degrees in either social work or psychology and have specialized training in a combination of then following: anxiety/panic, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, trauma, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Substance Abuse, Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Our therapist all practice from a holistic, mind-body approach with an emphasis on partnering to help client a find their footing to move forward. We are an active practice that really pushes clients towards change, trying out new skills and making a new vision for life a reality. In that, we're not the practice for everyone but are always happy to refer to other local practices if we don't believe we're the best fit. We want to see you move through therapy, get what you need and live your best life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
All of our therapists believe strongly in social justice and empowerment. All Bright Spit therapists spent significant portions of their career serving at local non-profits, many continue to actively volunteer. Additionally, as a commitment to ensuring access to quality mental health services, all our therapists offer a number of sliding scale slots to help make therapy affordable.
