Dr. Kaycee Beglau
I am a licensed, clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and dissociative disorders. Much of my work is focused on helping adults and adolescents face the challenges of trauma and the emotional, behavioral, and relational struggles they continue to endure. I understand that trauma takes many forms and has many effects. Thus, my clients include persons living with a variety of difficulties, including PTSD, dissociation, depression, anxiety, self-injurious behaviors, and painful feelings of grief and loss.
My work is integrative, which means I collaborate with each person to co-create the most effective approach to therapy depending on preferences, needs, values, and goals. I draw from a variety of therapeutic techniques, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic, and Relational Psychotherapy/Psychoanalysis. My therapeutic style and approach generally focuses on helping people improve their lives and relationships in the here and now by understanding the effects of their earlier life experiences on their current functioning and providing a safe, warm, and accepting environment for healing and growth
Dr. Andrea Falzone
I love being a therapist and helping individuals develop a deeper understanding of, and connection to, themselves and others. I believe in building a strong therapeutic relationship based on acceptance, trust, collaboration, and empathic understanding, where individuals feel safe, heard, valued and empowered to heal and to make the positive changes for which they desire. My theoretical orientation is integrative. I utilize relational, cognitive, behavioral, and emotion-focused interventions that are multi-culturally sensitive in an integrative fashion to address each person's unique concerns. I value understanding clients’ past experiences, particularly related to relationships with family, friends, and important others, as these experiences often shape present relationships and struggles. When working with children and adolescents, I incorporate age and developmentally-sensitive interventions, including skill-building to further develop healthy coping strategies and the use of play, art, music, and movement as alternative mediums for self-expression.
I offer treatment for a variety of concerns, including stress, anxiety, depression, identity and adjustment concerns, and relationship issues. I specialize in treating survivors of interpersonal trauma and have extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced sexual assault, intimate partner violence, harassment, stalking and various forms of childhood maltreatment, including psychological, physical, and sexual abuse.
Over the past 15 years, I have conducted therapy and assessment in a variety of settings (college counseling, residential treatment, community mental health, crisis mobile response, schools) across the continuum of age and functioning. I also have specialized training and experience in therapy modalities to treat Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), including Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Prolonged Exposure (PE).
Katie Fries, LCSW, RPT
I believe that healing occurs within healthy, supportive relationships--with ourselves and others. I value therapy because I see it as a place where we are invited to be our whole selves and to explore beliefs about ourselves that may no longer be true in order to live a more mindful, spontaneous, fulfilled life.
I am a licensed social worker specializing in treating children, teens, and adults who have experienced traumatic events and attachment disruptions. I hold a deep understanding and appreciation for the ways in which a parent’s own childhood abuse and neglect can create difficulty feeling connected to one’s child, and I enjoy helping parents find compassion for themselves, which often leads to a deeper authentic connection to their child. I especially enjoy supporting foster and adoptive parents and their children to create meaningful, healing relationships. I utilize a variety of play therapy techniques to support children in expressing themselves in the ways most natural to them. Some of my approaches include, sand tray therapy, Theraplay, Attachment-Based Family Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Parent Child Interaction Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Gestalt Therapy.
Dr. Shoshana Twersky, LPC
I have thirteen years of experience working in various mental health settings, providing individual, couples, and family psychotherapy, and extensive training facilitating crisis intervention. I am passionate about positively impacting peoples’ mental health and wellbeing, using evidence-based treatment approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Interpersonal, Mindfulness-based (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Prolonged Exposure Therapy, and other therapeutic modalities. My goal is to build a therapeutic alliance with you to provide a solid foundation for our work together. I have experience providing counseling to a diverse array of clients dealing with a variety of issues including anxiety and depressive disorders, substance abuse issues, trauma, psychological issues pertaining to infertility, and every-day life concerns. I have a strong background in treating addictive disorders and I believe it is vital to respect the power of addiction. Yet it's also important to collaboratively create a therapy plan that works best for the individual, including a balanced approach to treatment that includes harm-reduction techniques when appropriate. I am also particularly interested in working with trauma and loss.
A clinical diagnosis is not as important as being able to understand your individual circumstances and to learn techniques you can use to help reduce the intensity or even alleviate symptoms. At times, life can be challenging for many reasons including health, personal relationships, professional pursuits, etc. Our sessions can offer a safe space in which to bring greater awareness and compassion for yourself and others during these times, and equip you with new coping tools to improve your quality of life and happiness.
Alisa Stamps, MSS, LCSW
Often, people find themselves at a crossroads in their lives and are in need of an unbiased person to help them walk through and move forward. I specialize in working with individuals who are adult children of narcissists and who may be struggling with identity and body image issues. Additionally, I also specialize treating eating disorders, anxiety, and complex trauma. Together, you and I will work to create your journey of self-discovery so that your true self can once again emerge and continue to walk down the road toward change.
I love being a therapist and envision the therapeutic relationship to be a place of trust, exploration, authenticity, spontaneity, and of course, healing. I have experience conducting therapy in various settings (residential treatment, intensive out patient, groups) and have worked with teens and adults. I am a certified Gestalt Therapist, and am certified in Dr. McBride’s (author of Will I Ever Be Good Enough) five-step recovery model for treating adult children of narcissistic parents. I am also trained in Somatic/Embodiment Therapy. I use the therapeutic modality of Gestalt, which is experimental, existential, and experiential. What I love about Gestalt is that it deals with the Here and Now and can bring tremendous Awareness to those seeking help. I also concentrate on embodiment and the somatic aspects of mental health and remain curious about how thoughts and feelings manifest in the body. In addition, I have begun to incorporate parts work and therapeutic writing into some sessions to access other mediums of expression. I’m always searching for creative ways to connect the body and mind, be it through movement, utilizing vocal or acting techniques, or just sitting with self.

Additionally, I have worked with those seeking asylum and healing from the scars of rape used as a tactic of war. I have studied and facilitated various conflict resolution, community healing, and restorative justice models in the US, Rwanda, and SCI Graterford in Pennsylvania (now SCI Phoenix).

Dr. Abby Costello
I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives. My theoretical approach is integrative and based on interpersonal process, humanistic, multicultural, and psychodynamic theories. I believe in the importance of helping clients gain insight into how their past and present relationships are influencing their understanding of themselves, their current relationships, and their life struggles.
As a licensed clinical psychologist, I have broad experience in providing therapy to a diverse range of clients with a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, identity development, perfectionism, stress, and relationship struggles. I have particular expertise in working with survivors of interpersonal trauma, and have extensive experience treating individuals who have experienced sexual assault, harassment, stalking, intimate partner violence and childhood abuse. Additionally, I have specialized training and experience in treating eating disorders and body image concerns. In addition to individual therapy, I am passionate about conducting couples therapy using a combination of techniques from Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy and the Gottman Method.
Over the past several years, I have had the ability to conduct therapy across a variety of settings and have been able to witness clients’ profound ability to overcome obstacles and change their lives when provided with a supportive environment. Being able to build trust with clients that allows them to share their innermost thoughts, feelings, and experiences to help facilitate meaningful change is the biggest privilege of my work.
