Meet Our Therapists

Alicia Kwande, LCSW

therapist/Clinical Social Worker

who I work with:

You are known among your family and friends as one of the kindest people they know. Your tendencies towards compassion and empathy, however, have left you with next to nothing to give yourself. You may find yourself feeling guilty and stressed over not meeting others’ expectations. Maybe you are pregnant or a new mother and are struggling with isolation, anxiety, or depression. You wonder: Where is the joy that so many new moms seem to be experiencing? Or you are taking care of other family members or clients where the caregiving is feeling more burdensome, and your grief is overwhelming. Your sense of self-worth has really taken a hit over the years, and sometimes you can’t even remember if you had ever positive thoughts toward yourself.

therapist

who i work with:

 

You are more analytical in your thinking patterns, and you tend to be highly logical, intelligent, and high-achieving. However, you have difficulty getting in touch with your emotional side, and that is causing you problems in relationships and perhaps even in your career growth. You may be experiencing anxiety (social or generalized), depression, or grief, and you’re not sure how to break free of these negative thinking patterns. These obstacles are separating you from living your most meaningful life. You want move past your anxious or depressed thoughts and feelings, or your intense grief, and break free of patterns that have become an impediment to your happiness.

Leah Sadeghi, LPC

therapist

who I work with:

You are an expert in taking care of everyone around you, but you feel uncertain how to take care of yourself. As a “people pleaser,” you know in great detail what others need and how to fix things, but struggle to know what you need, how you feel or how to address your own problems. You may feel angry or exhausted, or have neglected your needs to the point where your physical health is impacted. Anxiety, depression or grief might be creeping up on you. You are finding yourself more depleted, unsupported and recognize it is time for a change. I can help you build healthy boundaries and improve relationships with those in your life, while finding the balance of your own personal well-being so your health doesn't suffer.

KRisten Dammer, LCSW

therapist/clinical social worker

She, Her, Hers

who i work with:

I help adults find relief from your anxiety and recover from trauma, women adjust to pregnancy, and moms cope with postpartum depression or anxiety. So many of us suffer from our past affecting our present self and relationships in silence, not knowing how much it has really affected you as a person. Life changes such as pregnancy and a new baby can have a big impact on your mental well-being. My hope is to help you process, understand and eventually find a bit of acceptance, free from the guilt that unsettles so many women and mothers. Therapy that focuses specifically on maternal mental health issues may be the answer you are looking for to help you regain a sense of control over your life.

Shannon Heers, LPC, LMHC, CAS

owner and therapist

She, Her, Hers

who i work with:

My passion is working with high-level professionals, pregnant or postpartum moms, and parents to help you manage your stress, anxiety and grief. You are trying to balance your job with your personal life and most days you’re feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and like you’ll never be yourself again. Or as a new mom you are feeling emotions you never thought you’d having your baby such as depression, feeling lost or empty, or excessive anxiety that you are getting buried under. You may even want to run away from everything despite cherishing your loved ones and having built up a solid career. When your life balance is out of whack, you and your family are the ones that suffer. You want to feel more in control of yourself and your life but you don’t know what to do or how to do it.
