Individual counseling can significantly help with perspective and dealing with everyday stress.
“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
Talk therapy helps you feel heard, understood and validated.
We cultivate a therapeutic alliance and space for you to express yourself without judgement or fear of criticism.
A strong body of research suggests that bottling up feelings, thoughts and emotions is stressful. When you express your feelings with a skilled professional you can learn new perspectives, gain insights about yourself, begin to understand how and why you feel they way you do so you can learn to manage your emotions better.
Talk therapy can positively impact your mental health and immune system.
The emotional wounds in our life, like the wounds on our body, don’t just disappear if we try to simply cover it up with a band-aid (distraction, substance abuse, workaholic, etc). Emotional wounds need care, nurture and ongoing follow-up to avoid it from negatively impacting our life.
With EMDR therapy you can feel more in control of your emotions, empowered by the very experiences that once debased you, transformation through old wounds and improved signs of emotional health and resolution.
Heena Khan, LPC-S, RPT-S is experienced in utilizing EMDR and fully trained by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).

800,000 women annually are affected by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
They are the number one complication of childbirth. Perinatal Mood Disorders include temporary and treatable conditions that occur during and/or after pregnancy.
Left undetected and untreated, these conditions can lead to negative health outcomes for the mother, and can negatively affect the mother-child bond and the child’s long-term physical, emotional, and developmental health. Additionally, the financial cost of untreated maternal mental health conditions can be significant (for example, more use of emergency care services, higher rates of absenteeism at work).
