Kelly Baez

Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LPC
Hi, my name is Kelly, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified First Responder Counselor, and have advanced training in EMDR. I help veterans and first responders process stressors and trauma more efficiently using EMDR. I offer both group and individual Intensives for those wanting to work through traumatic experiences in a short amount of time so they can move forward with their lives more quickly. That said, Intensives are not for everyone, so I offer EMDR sessions in the traditional weekly/biweekly approach as well. Don't feel like EMDR is a good fit? No worries, I have over 17 years of experience providing "talk therapy" so if you'd prefer, we can always talk it out. Please note, online Group Intensives are only for First Responders and are offered twice a month. To get the ball rolling and ensure that working together is a good fit, I offer a free 15-minute consultation - I look forward to hearing from you!

Eve Ruby

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, MSW, LICSW
Wherever you’ve been, however you’ve arrived, I’m glad you are here. To me, therapy is about taking time and space to listen to our bodies and emotions, with the hope of allowing us to reconnect with our inherent wisdom. We don't lose touch with this wisdom by accident. Trauma, unhealed wounds, and oppression separate us from our wisdom and intuition, and impact our ability to access all parts of ourselves. You and your body carry so much, from the grief and resilience of those who came before you, to the stress of everyday life. You were never meant to carry it all on your own.

Elizabeth Banerjee

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
The first questions I often hear from new clients is - are you going to judge me? I have worked with clients from all backgrounds and experiences, and I will never judge you for who you are or what you've been through. Likewise, I'll never be offended if you tell me a particular tool isn't working for you or there's something else you'd like to try. Therapy is a partnership, and we'll work together to find the tools and insight you need to reach your goals.
