Denise L. Brooks, LP (She, Her, Hers)
Psychologist and Clinic Director

Dr. Denise L. Brooks is committed to individualized care because she feels strongly that, though humans share much in common, each person is one-of-a-kind. Each life is a creative process, and therapy empowers us to build our best possible lives by acquiring and practicing new life skills in a safe, non-judgmental space that promotes greater peace of mind, a sense of emotional intelligence and self-acceptance, and an increased ability to cope with emotional, spiritual, career, and financial challenges.

Specializing in women’s issues, adolescents, and chemical dependency, she employs a holistic approach to help people heal from childhood trauma, adjust to loss, or recover from substance abuse or dependence, disordered eating, and relationship difficulties.

Zeina Mikhael, LLP, BCBA, LBA (SHE, HER, HERS)
Psychotherapist

Zeina Mikhael: Every individual is unique, which is why my therapeutic approach is tailored to be as individual as my clients. My goal is to provide a safe space for you - one that is free of judgement - so that you may explore and process your past experiences and emotions as well as gain insight into issues that may be affecting your ability to live your life to the fullest.

As a first generation American, I know that navigating between cultures is challenging. Learning how to exert your values and place boundaries can be difficult. In this, my therapeutic approach is designed to consider cultural variables that may impact self-image and self-worth as well as help you process trauma if needed (including war trauma or that due to immigration or refugee status).
In addition, I specialize in providing therapy for anxiety and depression, developmental delays (such as ASD, ADHD, and Intellectual Disabilities), phobias, PTSD, and trauma.   I employ many techniques such as CBT, trauma-focused CBT, ACT, DBT, Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, psychometric testing and evaluation, Behavioral Activation, and Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you explore and reach your life goals.
Sometimes getting started is the most difficult part, but you are not alone.  Call for a 15 minute consultation, to see if we’ll be a good fit for each other, and allow me to help you embark on your journey!

I use a holistic, non-judgmental approach to build relationships with my clients and provide a caring and trusting space. Every individual is unique and the plans and techniques used will reflect that. Not only do I work on these skills during sessions, but my hope is to generalize the skills to every aspect in the individual’s life. It is not about feeling better in the moment, per se, but it is about utilizing their skills and feeling better about themselves in the long run. Finding motivation to make that first call and seek out therapy is tough, but I hope you find it beneficial in taking 15 minutes for a consultation and see if this is a good fit for you. These sessions are all about YOU and your wants and needs, I aspire to support your journey and see your growth!

Linda Marino, LLP (She, Her, Hers)
Psychotherapist

Linda Marino: A measurement of our personal strength can be found in the opportunities presented for us to overcome adversity. Life is heavy, so we must grow stronger and lighten the load we carry. Finding the hope and courage to navigate the detours and roadblocks along the way might seem impossible. Yet, there is a choice available to move forward and take a different route. The world can be a place of suffering and despair or that of healing and forgiveness. Learning from each other becomes the greatest of lessons that the world has to offer. Our shared experiences of vulnerability and connectedness is a vantage point to look beyond the judgement of ourself and others. You don’t have to walk alone. We can travel this path as one.

 

The journey to self-actualization begins with the basic sense of safety and ends with realizing our potential. This means we are replacing an “outdated program” that was meant for survival with a healthier version of ourselves that is thriving. Establishing trust in a therapeutic relationship is vital to the self-discovery process and becomes the transformative agent of change. Therapy is meant to provide a space to explore our innermost self and stay presently aware and open-minded to consider alternate perspectives to any life situation.

 

The challenge is to go beyond our usual resistances to reveal and accept the parts of ourselves and others that we have casted aside. The plan is to integrate back to feeling whole and seeing others that same way. We often disguise parts of ourselves and employ fear-based defense mechanisms as protection from the world. This is a place where those walls come down safely, with a sense of security, and confidentiality. It is uncomfortable to feel that our weaknesses are being exposed, but it allows for re-imagining our purpose and identity with new meaning.

 

Understanding how negative emotions cause disharmony and separation activates the motivation to envision a better reality. Personal change can happen rapidly when we let go of the emotions that no longer serve us, weigh us down, and hold us back. The goal is to preserve our efforts and energy to focus on the positive outcomes that we desire. This integrative approach is designed for conversations that evoke laughter, tears, and even anger to encourage an emotional release that is liberating. Let’s embark on this journey of infinite possibilities together.

J. Ryan Trapp, MSCP, LPC
Psychotherapist

J. Ryan Trapp: At any age, life throws us many challenges, and we all experience them uniquely. While we are the experts of our own lives, we often are unable to see clearly or make the best decisions because of emotions. Coping and adjusting can take work, and we need support at times. I provide a comfortable, safe, judgment-free environment for exploring your experiences and emotions, managing stress, meeting your goals, challenging yourself, improving mindfulness, skill-building, and replacing unhealthy patterns, all through talk-therapy. You may be experiencing depression or other mood problems, low self-esteem, anxiety, distorted thinking, family issues, problems with your personal relationships, or the effects of trauma or abuse at any age. As a family, you may be experiencing family conflict, divorce, codependence, launching and transitional difficulties, or grief and loss. Children can have mood or behavioral problems, social anxiety, school anxiety, communication and self-expression difficulties, and more. I provide counseling to children and adults as well as families. My therapeutic approach is person-centered, strength-based, and solutions-focused; I utilize various therapeutic techniques depending on the needs and goals of each client. We can work together to manage life's challenges and accomplish your goals.
