Jennifer Dodd, LCSW, Owner, Clinical Supervisor (She/ Her)
Jennifer works with Adults, Individuals, LGBTQ+, & HSP persons. Specializing in Developmental/Complex Trauma, Anxiety, & Relational work.
Using this latest research in psychology, I approach treatment using a variety of methods. The research shows that collaboration between the therapist and client is most effective in the healing process. We begin our work together by establishing a therapeutic relationship, develop coping skills, self-care practices, and guidance of techniques such as trauma-focused Mindfulness and Meditation. Self-Compassion, Inner child/ parts work, Visualizations, Imagery, & Writing are utilized to support you in diving deeper into uncomfortable experiences, emotions, and memories.
In addition to traditional talk therapy and Mindfulness-based therapies such as ACT, I incorporate therapeutic modalities of Brainspotting, EMDR, IFS, NARM, and Somatic therapies for the integral healing of your mind, body, and spirit. I have training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, an integrated Somatic & Cognitive Therapy program by Dr. Pat Ogden for the healing of relational, attachment and trauma wounding. Additionally, I am currently training and working on certification in Internal Family Systems (IFS) by Dr. Richard Schwartz as well as Dr. Laurence Heller’s program, NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) for the treatment of Complex and Developmental Trauma.
Miranda Acharya, LCSW (She/Her)
Miranda works with Individuals & Adolescents, specializing in Eating Disorders, Anxiety & Trauma presentations.
For many people who are experiencing a crossroads or crisis that makes it harder to enjoy life or to function, therapy can help. I believe that for therapy to be effective there needs to be an authentic connection and sense of trust with your chosen provider.
My clinical style is active, warm, and collaborative; it is rooted in trauma-informed care, a strengths-based approach, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing principles. My hope is to help guide you in finding the insight and skills you need to promote sustainable growth and healing.
Though I have worked with a diverse array of populations, most of my experience has been with people experiencing anxiety, depression, or life transitions; survivors of traumatic experiences; and people in eating-disorder recovery. Anyone looking for self-exploration, growth, and healing in any capacity is welcome.
Mariah Wyatt, LPC-Intern, Art Therapist (she/her)
Mariah works with Individuals, Children, Adolescents, & Families. Specializing in art & nature therapy.
There is no right or wrong time to start growing towards your goals and potential! I utilize rigorously researched therapeutic methodologies to facilitate healing connections with, within, and surrounding my clients. I acknowledge that there are many factors that influence disconnection with oneself, one’s environment, and each other, which can manifest as anxiety, depression, grief, and relationship challenges. My ultimate goal is to meet others wherever they are at and empower them in their growth narrative to draw upon internal and external resources of strength and meaning making through the employment of mindfulness approaches, positive psychology, interpersonal neurobiology, and cognitive behavioral art therapy.
My use of Art Therapy in combination with traditional talk therapy aids individuals in connecting with themselves, their bodies, thoughts, emotions, and relationships in order to support greater balance and purpose in their life. Engaging in Art Therapy does not require that you be an “artist”, as the approach is process, not product, oriented. When expressing oneself visually I take the stance of “everything you create is correct and something to be celebrated.” Through the cultivation and witnessing of one’s visual and verbal expression I strive to support my clients in communicating and advocating for their needs and emotions with themselves and others in their support system. With that being said, I honor that sometimes there are feelings or events that have taken place that are difficult to put into words. This is where the magic of creative approaches to self-expression can support approachable, trauma-informed means to developing one’s connection with their subconscious and bringing it to a conscious level where growth can begin to take root.
Melanie Mamola, CMHC Intern, (She/Her)
Melanie works with Individuals and Adolescents, specializing in Mindfulness-based techniques and Person-Centered therapies.
I believe our most basic human task is to know, accept, love, and care for ourselves. As a CMHC Graduate Student Intern with over 15 years of experience in health care, I take an integrative and holistic approach with each client. I utilize mindfulness-based techniques including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as well as various expressive arts modalities. Working together, we create a safe space to explore your life in an open and honest way so that you can begin to take small, consistent steps in the direction of growth. I work with clients who are dealing with anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, parenting issues, divorce, low self-worth, and those who are sober curious, in recovery, or concerned with behavioral addictions. My goal as a counselor is to help you discover your strengths and find the courage and motivation within yourself to design the life you imagine.
Lindsay Anderson, 200hr RYT, LPC-Intern (She/Hers)
I believe yoga is a journey and practice of finding balance in life’s dualities. It stretches and strengthens our bodies and minds. It empowers us to sit with discomfort and encourages us to embrace change. It teaches us to connect with our breath and move mindfully, whether it’s in our practice or in our everyday lives. It enables us to connect with our intuition and deepen our intrapersonal relationship. Yoga teaches us the freedom to be our true and authentic selves.
In my class, I will provide you space to show up exactly as you are. I believe that you know yourself and your body the best, and I will honor your practice and space. I will offer modifications to either cool or heat your practice, allowing you the choice to do what best serves you in the moment. I will encourage you to be curious with yourself, enabling you to gather information without passing judgements. Most importantly, I will offer you reminders to stay in the present moment, connecting with your breath, your body, and your spirit, both on and off the mat. I look forward to sharing this practice with you.
Aside from being a yogi…
I am also an avid hiker, a hobby photographer, a mental health counselor, a cat mom, and a believer in small acts of kindness.
