Emily O'Connor
MS, LPC, CEDS

Welcome – my name is Emily, and I am a licensed mental health counselor, certified eating disorder specialist, and certified clinical trauma practitioner. While I work with a variety of age ranges and conditions, my areas of expertise include treatment of anxiety, body image concerns, disordered eating/eating disorders, and trauma. I have a special passion for working with young adults, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

My goal is to help you create meaningful change in your life to leads to lasting wellness and fulfillment. This looks like developing skills and insight that impact your life in an ongoing and positive way outside the counseling space.

My counseling approach integrates a balance of head and heart. This means drawing on evidenced based practices and modern science from a root of compassion and warmth. It means providing a flexible, safe environment to explore painful experiences and empowering my clients to integrate new skills to reduce negative impacts of the symptoms.

I like to integrate creativity in treatment planning to meet your individual needs as best as I can, utilizing natural resources in the mind and body for healing. I use a trauma informed, integrative approach to counseling - meaning I draw several different schools of thought depending on your individual needs. The most common approaches I utilize are Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I look forward to exploring all that makes up you, and how we can move towards wellness together.

The struggles that bring people in therapy are myriad and each person’s situation is unique. As such, my treatment philosophy is that our work together should be driven by your goals and informed by your strengths.

 

My experience has focused largely around PTSD and anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, OCD, and social anxiety disorder. I also work with patients on eating disorders and body-focused repetitive behaviors such as trichotillomania. I rely strongly on evidence-based practices including CBT-based therapy. Along with Jaclyn, I am one of a very small number of local therapists trained in the use of Prolonged Exposure (PE) for PTSD. I have experience working with members of the LGBTQ+ community to address their needs, including support through gender-affirming transitions and coping with stress related to homophobia and transphobia. I also have experience working with spouses of military members/veterans and women who are pregnant or postpartum and bring to bear personal as well as professional experience with these particular life experiences.


I look forward to getting to know you and helping you navigate any of the challenges you carry with you. Although I am a big proponent of evidence-based treatments, I believe the core of any good therapeutic experience is a strong relationship and I hope to accomplish this through warmth, humor, and transparency.

Hello, and congratulations on taking that first step towards bettering your mental health! I have been a licensed professional counselor since 2013, working in many different environments, with many different populations. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, addictions, and tough life transitions. 

 

I am certified in perinatal mental health, and have a passion for working with parents who might be struggling during the prenatal, perinatal, or postnatal phases.  I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma and/or abuse. My counseling style is transparent, warm, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach with clients is eclectic, and can combine various treatment modalities, including CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic principles. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

 

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Maria Recker

MSW, LCSW

I am a licensed clinical social worker.  I have worked with clients on a wide range of things including eating disorders, trauma, and depression but my areas of expertise and passion are OCD, anxiety disorders, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.

I believe in being very direct, transparent, and non-judgmental with clients.  I believe in validating what individuals might be going through and also challenging them to see things from a different perspective when needed.  My approach is based very much in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as several subsets of that including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure and Response prevention, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy, though I like to take an eclectic approach and tailor my style to what each individual would benefit from the most.

I am always so proud of people for reaching out when they need more support and I would love to be that supportive person for you.

Jaclyn Geitner

MSW, LCSW, PMH-C

I'm here to help you bring some change to your life! We'll work together to help you achieve your goals. My areas of experience include treating trauma/PTSD; I am certified in Prolonged Exposure (PE), and have experience in addressing trauma for special populations including healthcare workers and veterans. I am also certified to treat perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs, PPD, PTSD) and support women through infertility, pregnancy and postpartum periods. I work with LGBTQ+ individuals to address unique treatment needs, including support through gender-affirming transitions. I also help people address depression and generalized anxiety. My primary experience is in working with adults or adolescents, and we can incorporate partners or family into sessions as needed.

I bring a balance of evidence-based treatment strategies along with empathy, transparency, and a touch of humor to our sessions and work on treating your symptoms realistically within the context of your daily life. My approach to therapy is often based in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure techniques, and mindfulness.

Change can be scary, and it is also very liberating! Watching people get back into their lives and cultivate their own power through the changes they make in therapy is the best part of what I do. By working together we can reduce your symptoms, and help you improve your life in the ways that matter most to you.

I am here to listen, help you grow into a happier, healthier person, and want you to look forward to coming to therapy.

 

Many of my interest areas relate to anxiety, including social anxiety, panic disorder, OCD, body-focused and repetitive behaviors. I am one of only a few clinicians in the area certified to treat OCD using Exposure and Response Prevention. I also work with the LGBTQ population and provide support before, during, and after gender-affirming transition. I love working with adults, adolescents, and women before, during, and after pregnancy to address their unique mental health needs.

I'm honored to have people entrust me with their care in the best and worst of times. I use only evidenced-based practices including feminist and Exposure-Based CBT, but also find humor goes a long way.

I am often told how down-to-earth I am and that people are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they feel after just our first session. I really value a strong client-therapist relationship and include you in every decision from the beginning to the end of treatment.
