Elyse M. Palumbo, LCSW Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist, LCSW
My experience is diverse, including crisis and hospital settings as well as long term psychotherapy. My extensive experience includes body image/emotional eating, trauma/abuse, relationship issues/mother daughter dynamics, self esteem, and loss/grief. Additionally, I am deeply passionate about working with sexual/gender identity and LGBTQ+ issues.
I believe effective psychotherapy is grounded in the relationship between the therapist and client. My approach is warm, empathic, and interactive. I practice from a relational and psychodynamic perspective, seeking a deeper understanding of one’s story and the formative events that contribute to identity and reveal one’s most authentic self. I will strive to create an atmosphere of safety and transparency to enable the healing of old and new wounds that still ache today. As a collaborative partner, I am committed to holding past, present, and future aspects of the her client’s inner world that can be intolerable alone, but in therapy, can lead to new life possibilities and new ways of being.
Darby Pistilli MS, CCTP Certified Clinical Trauma Professional
Finding a therapist that is a good fit for you can feel challenging. It is important for you to feel safe, comfortable and understood. I believe therapy should be a place where you feel seen and heard in a genuine way.
My therapeutic style is grounded in the belief that we all have the ability to grow and change. I specialize in working with adults, pre-teens, and adolescents grabbling with eating disorders, gender identity and life transitions. I create a safe and welcoming space for those that identify with the LGBTQ+ community.
I follow an empowerment based and eclectic approach to therapy that includes a psychodynamic and relational perspective. I am a certified trauma treatment professional and a member of the International Association of Trauma Professionals. These treatment modalities work to address our innermost, often hidden parts of ourselves. I strive to cultivate a warm, welcoming, and safe environment. I believe in building a mutually collaborative relationship as we work together in your journey to healing.
Steph JohnsonLicensed Social Worker (LSW)
I specialize in treating individuals with eating disorders and disordered eating, OCD, relationship issues, depression and anxiety. I have specific training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
Whether you are just beginning therapy or are continuing along in your therapeutic journey, I would like to support you by giving you a space to explore. I am eager to work with individuals towards lifelong fulfillment through the understanding of emotions and behaviors, and to build an environment that is rich for self-discovery.
My work centers around cultivating a supportive therapeutic relationship primarily through the use of psychodynamic and relational theories. I enjoy applying a person-centered approach where we can capitalize on the relationship that we build to inform the course and direction of treatment. We all have a story to share, and I believe that it is important that we give voice to our feelings, fears and hopes in order to become more whole in our unique identity.

My strengths are in forming meaningful relationships with my clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. The therapeutic relationship and its influence in creating positive change through providing a non-judgmental and safe environment is a core therapeutic value.

Dr. Sophia Brandstetter LCSW, PsyDClinical Director
Drastic shifts are sometimes necessary to make room for what truly brings us happiness. These transitions may provoke anxiety, but they also prompt us to question, evolve, and finally become who we were meant to be. I am here to assist you in your journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.
My approach is grounded in Psychodynamic and Relational Theory. We work together to understand your emotions, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into your present-day issues, unhealthy patterns, and your path ahead.
I specialize in accompanying my patients through major life transitions:
Discontent with the people and activities that once provided enjoyment
Self-questioning about who you are or where your life is going
Changes in family dynamics
Affairs and other relationship challenges
Loss and grief
Alexandra Roscigno M.S Psychology
As a therapist, my goal is to help clients navigate challenges that are causing distress or impeding their ability to live more fulfilled lives. I believe it is crucial to create a secure, warm environment in which clients will feel comfortable speaking about the difficult issues that have led them to seek treatment. Often, the work of therapy includes exploring thoughts and feelings in order to foster insight and help clients make desired changes to improve their wellbeing.
I work primarily from a psychodynamic perspective, though I have gained experience with other orientations and modalities throughout my training. I understand the importance of honoring the complexity of each individual, and appreciate having had the opportunity to complete my training in diverse communities with clients of many different cultures and backgrounds. I enjoy working with a range of presenting concerns, including anxiety, mood disorders, relationship and identity concerns, trauma, and eating/body image concerns. I look forward to meeting you!

I see children, adolescents, adults, and couples in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

Karen SaraulloClinical Social Work/Therapist, BSW
Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur and ones old ways of coping are no longer effective. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living. We can look at these past and present behaviors and work towards understanding where they come from. I create a therapeutic environment that is safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive. For over 20 years, I’ve specialized in working with individuals struggling with substance abuse, eating disorder, relationship challenges, depression, and anxiety.
