Laine williams | LCSW

she/her pronouns

I practice a style of counseling called Somatic Experiencing, a mindfulness-based style that teaches practical tools for achieving a state of calm.

My approach is to help clients not only process the story of what happened through talking about past experiences, but to also notice how those experiences feel physically in the body as they are being told. This is achieved through specific somatic practices, including mindfulness exercises, short guided meditations, visualization techniques, and breathwork that happen during each session.

As clients begin to pair their cognitive retelling of the story with an awareness of their emotions, they begin to develop a much deeper understanding of their felt experience and a greater tolerance for painful emotions. In time, as clients expand their capacity for staying with difficult emotions without numbing or suppressing them, they naturally rediscover deep experiences of joy, creativity, and connection.

Talia Sternberg | SWC

they/them pronouns

My name is Talia (they/them), and my therapeutic approach is rooted in a radical social justice framework. I believe that it’s natural for humans to experience anxiety, depression, and other symptoms as a result of oppressive systems. You are likely a great match to work with me if you are interested in pursuing healing through liberation. I believe that all humans are inherently valuable and worthy of love, and that includes you!

My lens is strengths-based and person-centered. I am guided by values rooted in social justice, queer and trans-affirming care, disability justice, fat liberation, and neurodivergent-affirming care.

I believe you are the expert in your life and invite you to be an active participant in your healing journey. I specialize in supporting queer and/or neurodivergent teens and young adults, but have experience with and enjoy supporting all ages and experiences. I am excited to help you work towards your goals!
