Meet Alex Rudy - Our Newest Therapist
Teletherapy
At the moment, our plan is to keep our physical office closed until the end of 2020, at which time we will re-evaluate whether to open.

All of our therapists continue to provide teletherapy for individual therapy and couples therapy/marriage counseling on HIPAA-compliant video platforms such as Doxy, VSee and WebEx.

The majority of our clients have told us they like teletherapy, mostly for the convenience. They can do sessions from the comfort of their home, without the hassle of driving or taking public transportation into the office.

In addition to daytime, evenings and Saturday hours, we now offer Sunday appointments (2pm-5pm).
COVID-19 TIP
As the pandemic drags on and each day has a Groundhog Day quality to it, it’s important to do what we can to get out of our daily routine.

That could mean something as simple as going on a walk in a different neighborhood, watching a new show on Netflix or planning a “nearcation” for a change of scenery.

There’s a sameness and a smallness to our lives now, which is leading to a sense of boredom for many of us. Having something new and different to do -- and the joy of looking forward to it -- even if the activity is not as exciting as it would have been pre-covid, is critical to our mental health.

Therapy for Black Girls
Psychologist Joy Harden Bradford offers practical tips and strategies to improve your mental health; discusses the latest news and trends in mental health, and pulls back the curtain on what happens in therapy sessions.

The Mental Illness Happy Hour
The Mental Illness Happy Hour is a weekly online podcast hosted by stand-up comedian Paul Gilmartin, who was diagnosed with clinical depression in 1999.

Gilmartin interviews fellow comedians, artists, friends and the occasional doctor about mental illness, trauma, addiction and negative thinking.

“I’m not a therapist,” he says. “This isn’t a doctor’s office. It’s more like a waiting room that doesn’t suck.”
