I believe that therapy should always be a safe environment, but "comfort" may need to be challenged in order for desired, transformative change to occur. My clients tend to come at a weekly session frequency for maintenance of a steady "flow" to our work.

My hope for any potential client is that they find the therapist that sufficiently aligns with their needs. If we find that after a couple sessions that our dynamic is not quite working, I will help you find a therapist that is a better fit.

Please feel free to contact me for a free, 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether we are a good therapeutic match. I look forward to hearing from you!

Congratulations for taking the first step towards change! I utilize many methods with clients during sessions (art therapy, narrative therapy, trauma focused therapy, positive psychology, videos, worksheets, etc.) Change does take work but it can happen! I sometimes give homework to help my clients achieve their goals. I mainly work with adults and adolescents (13+) as individuals and as couples (couples counseling includes a guardian/parent and adolescent minor, adolescent or adult siblings, or intimate partnerships). Whether it's depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, or a mixture of things, I look forward to working with you!

I specialize in trauma, depression, and anxiety with adults and adolescents. If you are seeking couples counseling, I can assist you and your partner with intimacy and communication during whatever stage of your relationship (pre-marital/unmarried, newly weds, married for years).

Change and healing happens when we are honest and express our authentic selves. We all carry the power and strength inside of us to revolutionize our lives. Let's discover your genuine self together to help you live a fulfilling life! You hold the keys to a better you. I look forward to helping you find those keys and unlocking your purposeful future.

Motherhood is a transformational experience. We need connection and support while we navigate this new terrain to feel validated and to learn new tools for dealing with the parts of the journey that test us most. Becoming a parent has a tremendous impact on our identity and very concept of selfhood. It has great potential to reshape our understanding of ourselves and help us heal. I feel passionate about helping parents of all kinds to navigate pregnancy and the post-birth journey. Sharing our stories breaks the stigma around the psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual strains of parenting.

I’m passionate about navigating pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, and the postpartum journey, and helping all parents develop healthy attachment with their children. I especially like to work with women in the transitional spaces, addressing identity shifts, ideas of mothering, wellness issues, and challenges. I work with parents who have experienced loss and NICU.

As a mother and stepmother, I understand just how much support parents need. I'm here to encourage honest conversations about the joys and difficult realities of parenting. To deepen the work in individual therapy, I also offer a pregnancy and postpartum therapy group.

As a naturalized American citizen of Iranian origin, I have a deep understanding of cross-cultural relationships and raising children with an emphasis on bicultural awareness. Identity is an important part of my work, and I welcome bicultural folxs from all life stages.

I know how hard it can be to struggle emotionally, feel lost, and perhaps even hopeless. Frequently, despite our best efforts, we cannot get out of our stuck patterns or reach the well-being that we deserve. I get it. Life is really complex, and it's really hard to navigate all its layers. However, please be assured that healing and thriving is possible. All that's needed is your continued courage for healing and support from the outside. I’ll be honored to be your support on that journey.

As your therapist, I am committed to helping you discover your inner power and cultivate lasting change. I help people whose emotions or thoughts take over at the worst possible moments, and those who wrestle with day-to-day life confusion, pain or loss. This period of time can feel overwhelming and debilitating. It may even affect your relationships with family, friends or career.

As Shannon Alder puts it, “courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” How do you to face the difficult questions, show courage, and claim your Shakti (strength) in order to heal?

Healing begins with love. Let’s work on being in love with the person in the mirror. You have been through so much and are still showing resilience. As your psychotherapist, I help you navigate the challenges of adulthood & manage your feelings through interventions such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Walking Therapy and other holistic methods like Crystal Healing.

If you are ready to feel empowered, effortlessly achieve your goals, and feel more happiness in your life, contact me today for a complimentary telephone consultation. I am in this with you & TOGETHER we can navigate any conflict you are trying to manage.

You’re ready for a change and although you may not be sure how therapy will help you, you are wanting to see what’s possible for your life. Therapy with me provides a space away from your family and friends to really express what’s going on for you. It’s a non-judgmental space but I am an active therapist. I listen with curiosity and offer feedback based on what I am hearing. It’s important to have a dialogue and explore what is going on for you in new ways.

I believe therapy is a place to explore challenges, connect with feelings, better understand patterns and relationships so you can create the life you want. Therapy is one of the rare places you can do that in a completely safe space and in the presence of someone who is committed to being on that path with you.

We are living in complex and important times. There is so much uncertainty about the future and sometimes it feels like our unfinished business is now standing up and staring us in the face. Making the decision to come to therapy is such a profoundly life altering choice, it is the most important investment in yourself that you can make.

I view my role as a guide to help you access the hidden parts of yourself that lead to you changing your life. By choosing to come to therapy, you choose to reshape your whole mind, your world view, and your future. It is a deep honor to do healing work at this time in our history. The journey we undertake together as therapist and client is one of the most sacred that exists.

I'm here to help you navigate these challenging times! These days we can find ourselves feeling anxious, confused, angry or depressed and without a sense of a direction forward into the new unknown territory we a living through. In order to overcome these new challenges to our physical, emotional, financial and spiritual well being, we need to increase our psychological and spiritual awareness so that we don't fall into victim thinking and powerlessness. And, for those of us who suffered childhood trauma, the challenges can be even more pronounced.

My work is directed at improving your well being and functioning on all levels: practical real world, psychological and spiritual. We will work together to evaluate your strengths and build on them to overcome whatever challenges and blockages that you are confronting.
I bring a large toolkit of psychological and spiritual practices to support you in your healing and growth. Remember that this time may be challenging but it also holds opportunities for your continued growth, both in the real world and as a spiritual being!

Many blessings,
Robert Cornell LMFT
