Chamin Ajjan

CEO & Clinical Director

It has been a privilege to practice psychotherapy for the past 20 + years. I strongly believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the ability we all have to heal, grow and thrive. I truly value the courage and willingness it takes for our clients to engage in self-exploration.

Sheenekah Strachan

With over a decade of professional administrative work experience, I have honed my organizational skills and excel at handling diverse administrative responsibilities. I have discovered a genuine passion for supporting therapists in numerous ways.

Emily Martinez

Associate Psychotherapist, Field Instructor

As a therapist, I believe in building a therapeutic relationship that is both safe and relaxing. Therapy is a journey, and it is your journey; you are the expert of your own life; as a therapist, I want to walk beside you, not ahead nor behind. It is a pleasure to be allowed into your world, and I handle that with the utmost care. 


Mollie Aklepi


Hybrid (In Person & Remote)

As a therapist, I prioritize the collaboration of therapist and client, as you are the expert of your own life. Clients have benefitted from working on their negative self-talk in therapy with me, as well as kindness to oneself and decreasing self-criticism.

Victoria Licandro


I believe that embedded in each of us are the tools and knowledge for self-reflection, growth, and healing. I work with clients to develop the insight and skills necessary to manage anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, relationship struggles, and to resolve past traumas.

Kelly Puckett


As a psychotherapist, I am encouraged by the development each of us is capable of in our own unique way.  We all deserve to live our most authentic and healthy lives, and I welcome the opportunity to help others remove the barriers keeping us from doing so.  

Jasmine Rivera-Hackley


I wholeheartedly believe in the positive impact that therapy can have on an individual’s life trajectory. I think that everyone should have access to a place where they can speak freely about what’s going on inside their head and their heart.

Seema Goel


Being ambitious and capable does not mean you do not need support. You may be struggling with anxiety, self-doubt, imposters syndrome, depression, performance anxiety or overthinking. We all are under life’s mercy and with that in mind, need to be empowered to learn to manage our challenges and build a strong sense of resilience.

Hybrid (In Person & Remote)

Psychotherapy is very intimate and helpful. I want to be apart of that process because I personally know the relief someone can feel when they unload trauma, conflict and pain. Everyone deserves a safe space and I am committed to providing one.

Eliana Samson

Clinical Intern

I believe in therapy and its ability to facilitate healing in many aspects of life, and I have experienced these benefits firsthand. I am dedicated to providing a safe, empathetic space that encourages vulnerable expression. Together, we can build upon your individual strengths and tools for coping with life’s stressors, and increase your sense of empowerment and wellbeing.
