Joel Martini, RN Psychotherapist

Drawing from Psychodynamic and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), I am committed to guiding clients towards discovering new perspectives and fostering resilience in the face of life's challenges and complexities. Utilizing a wholistic and goal-directed approach, I tailor each session to suit the unique needs and circumstances of each individual while recognizing the distinctiveness of each client's journey. At the heart of my practice is a dedication to nurturing a therapeutic relationship built on trust and collaboration. Together, we prioritize progress over perfection, with a priority on evidence-based research. I am here to equip you with the confidence and tools to navigate your presenting concerns, empowering you to seize control over what is within your ability to control, and guide you towards acceptance of what lies beyond your influence. Through a range of practical tools and techniques, we'll work together to confront objectives head-on and cultivate resilience in the face of adversity. Above all, I seek to promote individuality and authenticity. My goal is to support you in unlocking the full potential of your unique self, and guide you towards a life that aligns with your personal values and aspirations.

Natalia D'Abramo, RN Psychotherapist

My goal is to address “whole person” health and get to the root cause(s) of suffering. Our thinking patterns (stories) have tremendous power over how we live our lives. They can be the difference between living a meaningful and fulfilling life or living a depressing life. Let me help you re-write these stories to regain your happiness and sense of wellbeing.  My approach to therapy is driven by compassion and empathy where we will work collaboratively on your goals. My approach is integrative and one that draws on various therapies to give you the tools you need to start dealing with what has brought you my way. You will be left with a vast tool box for the future to tackle obstacles that may arise. In terms of my personality, I highly value the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and soul. I have been described as an extremely attentive listener - my goal is for you to feel genuinely heard, understood and valued.
