Abhik Saha, MA, LCPC, NCC
My comprehensive training and experience in Biological Science, Psychology, Counseling and Mind-Body Medicine utilizes a holistic case conceptualization while implementing integrative techniques to bring harmony to Mind, Body, and Spirit for the purpose of psychospiritual healing, empowerment & transformation. These interventions include Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Guided Relaxation & Meditation, Breath & Posture Work, Expressive Arts Therapy, Nature Therapy, Health Coaching, Imaginal Exposure Therapy for PTSD & Shamanic Healing. I am driven toward providing care with the assumption that clients are wise, empowered individuals capable of being their best self-care providers. As a highly driven individual with a remarkably diversified skillset, I am dedicated to applying my skills and expertise toward empowering and preserving all life on Earth.
My experience is quite broad, although I have particularly extensive experience in treating co-occurring addiction and mental health issues with a holistic harm-reduction approach. I also specialize in utilizing an integrative framework of the most cutting edge integrative psychotherapies, mindfulness & meditation, life coaching and mind-body medicine.
I am one of the few therapists in the area studying mind-body medicine and integrative mental health at the doctoral level. I use powerful techniques which allow for deep exploration, healing, and transformation, without medication or condescending tactics. This is the NEW mental health & wellness paradigm.
Caroline Gomes, LGSW

"With my background in science and experience with diverse clients, I have come to understand how powerful the mind is. Biology is not fixed and by having new experiences, the brain and body can rewire, creating lasting change. Therefore, there is much power in the here-and-now. Empathy and supporting the individual holistically, can help to heal one's past, and allow for a deeper understanding of one's unique self, to create a more fulfilling future."

Briah L. Ryan, LCPC
You are unique and your counseling experience should be tailored to your needs. With a background in Graphic Design, Psychology, and Pastoral Counseling, Briah believes that approaching counseling from a holistic approach includes addressing the spiritual as well as the emotional and physical needs of her clients. As an artist, Briah also provides treatment options that integrate creative therapeutic techniques to encourage self-growth and bring about personal or environmental change.
Briah’s theoretical approach combines Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt, and Existential methods. This means that she approaches counseling from a curiosity perspective. Each person is a puzzle full of several smaller puzzles. As the conversation continues, the information you share fits into these puzzles. As the pictures take shape, Briah will work with you to help you develop a comprehensive picture of the person you would like to become and take steps towards that ideal.

Maria Nusser, LGPC
Maria is an integrative psychotherapist, specializing in existential and integrative mind-body therapy. She approaches therapy through a holistic, strengths-based approach; empowering clients in a casual and relaxed atmosphere without judgement, condescending tactics, or medication.
Maria integrates energy work and mindfulness into her practice to help balance the mind, body, and spirit, and create transformative healing experiences. She specializes in addictions, LGBTQIA+ issues, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, academic & career issues, mood swings, anger, grief, and existential crisis. Her approach is profoundly respectful, genuine, and supportive.
“With my 7 year-career working within comorbid addictions and mood disorders, I’ve come to notice the amount of guilt and shame that we carry with the choices we make and regret. Instead of holding in these burdens, I encourage clients to accept themselves as they are in the moment; to not judge themselves for the things they can’t change from the past or future, and to focus on loving themselves into the present moment. You deserve respect, love, and acceptance. Your feelings are valid. You are good enough. You matter. “
