Our Individual Approaches to Therapy


Mia Ruth provides an integrative therapeutic approach which includes traditional and evidence-based treatment methods. This integration allows her to develop individualized treatment plans rooted in clients’ unique goals and needs.

Although she utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities, she primarily draws from Psychodynamic Therapy and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), which is closely related to Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). While employing techniques from these methods, she provides a safe and non-judgmental space within which you can explore root causes of problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, with the intent of working together to develop healthy thoughts and effective coping mechanisms.


Shannon works from a Psychodynamic and Relational perspective, integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness techniques in assisting clients to achieve their goals. This eclectic approach allows Shannon to develop a thorough conceptualization of what brought her clients to therapy as well as an active plan for the present and future, tailored to her clients’ needs and goals.


Her specialties include working with individuals undergoing life transitions, dating/relationship issues, premarital or marital challenges, prenatal, pregnancy, and postpartum concerns, family conflicts, divorce, infertility, and bereavement.


Andra takes an eclectic approach to therapy, utilizing various evidence-based treatment interventions with clients. She primarily draws from Object Relations, Multicultural, and Feminist-Based Theories. Andra also draws heavily from mindfulness techniques and utilizes techniques from Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). These techniques are always implemented from a strengths-based, client-centered approach. 


While Andra is open to serving all types of clients, her experience mainly includes working with individuals who have anxiety, depression, dating/relationship issues, work/career-related concerns, and family conflicts.
