Manhattan, New York therapist: Anna Stephenson, therapist
Narrative

Anna Stephenson

Therapist, MA, CCLS, RDT, LCAT
I’m really glad you’re here. I work with kids, teens, and adults to help them to live playfully, even when things feel like A LOT. My clients struggle like you and I do because life can just REALLY suck sometimes. Our entire world view, the way we see ourselves and respond to others can profoundly change after a traumatic event. As we shield ourselves from more pain, trauma can cause the parts of ourselves that are open to new experiences, ideas, our memories, and our even our bodies to close off. Therapy works to help reconnect us to those distant parts of ourselves, reinstating access to the full range of our potential and reigniting joy. I like to think of therapy like you’ve invited me over to your metaphorical home. What are your “house rules”? How many rooms are there and what’s in them? Should I take my shoes off before coming inside? We may not make it to the scary basement on day 1, but that’s okay. Our work will allow you to guide the tour and exploring your "house" together. Can I come in?

Manhattan, New York therapist: Alvina Anantram, counselor/therapist
Narrative

Alvina Anantram

Counselor/Therapist, M.A., LMHC
Hi! I'm Alvina and I want to commend you on taking this step to start or restart therapy! I can't wait to learn more about you, but first please allow me to share a little about myself and my work with clients. As a teenager I realized the lack of conversations and understanding about mental health within the West Indian community. In my experience anxiety, depression, or self-esteem challenges were easily overlooked due to my age, and gender. The unspoken assumption that there were “bigger problems” to deal with, left me feeling overwhelmingly defeated. I quickly realized that with a safe space I could process the pressure of cookie-cutter life paths and highlight reels. I developed a stronger sense of confidence to cut through the noise and honor my own needs with greater self-love. I hope to provide the same space for you! Together, we will gain insight into your core beliefs, attachment styles, and relationships that may be keeping you stagnant or misaligned to your goals. I encourage you to freely express all aspects of your identity, as I strongly believe that is the key to showing up unapologetically in the world. If you are ready to jump into your self-empowerment journey please connect with me, and let's begin!

West Hollywood, California therapist: Dr. Ingrid Solano, psychologist
Narrative

Dr. Ingrid Solano

Psychologist, PhD
I see myself as an intuitive, creative, informed, and highly trained Clinical Psychologist that provides a safe, nonjudgmental, and transformative environment. Therapy with me fosters a deep sense of engagement and connection, a sense of feeling heard and understood, and clarity where there was previously ambiguity. I have a passion for the importance of relationships, authentic living, self-acceptance, and the complex experiences of those who hold multiple identities. I specialize in hard to talk about topics that are often stigmatized or concealed.  I treat clients who are dealing with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, co-dependency, interpersonal problems (i.e., couples therapy, sex therapy), stigma/discrimination, childhood/adult sexual trauma, shame and guilt (among others). I specialize in non-traditional/diverse  relationships and sexuality, complex PTSD, LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy, and the unique stressors of being a creative.  I work well with curious individuals who are motivated to grow, share, be vulnerable, and play in therapy and in their lives. Creativity and curiosity in psychotherapy allows both of us to explore, question, imagine, and reflect on thoughts and experiences with depth and authenticity. Together we explore more flexible ways of thinking and relating to others. I offer evidence-based therapies from a curious, nonjudgmental philosophy. No matter where you have been, evidence-based therapies focus on changing the now. I strive to help my clients experience the world mindfully, and in accordance with their personal values. Through our work in cultivating an affirming, authentic, and non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, I provide support while we collaboratively deconstruct what is causing distress in your life and preventing you from being your most effective and authentic self. Individual therapy facilitates insight and growth, becoming more effective at actualizing your values, and building more authentic relationships with yourself and with others. While there are many forms of therapy you can pursue, my expertise is in time-limited, evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT), the Unified Protocol for emotional disorders, and third wave CBT such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness based interventions. (I do have experience in, and practice, an eclectic arrangement of other modalities as well-- when applicable or specifically requested.) We explore thoughts, beliefs, and understanding, while also prioritizing behavioral processes that focus on your contexts and the functions of how you relate to your internal experiences. CBT is designed to help individuals notice and shift their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to get relief from painful emotions such as anxiety and sadness.

I work with adults who want to change their lives and get to the root of what makes them think, feel and react in ways that keep them stuck.

We explore the events, thoughts and feelings that led to painful relationships and low self-esteem. We work together to develop realistic individualized strategies to minimize unhealthy patterns that prevent joy and peace in their lives. We collaborate to implement realistic changes that improve their quality of life.
