Psychologists/Therapists Profiles

  Kimberly Tran, PhD, HSP-P Licensed Psychologist

I am a licensed psychologist with experience working with a diversity of adults from a multicultural and affirmative perspective. I am committed to helping adult individuals with depression, anxiety, trauma survivor (PTSD, MST, Wounded Warrior, emotional, sexual, physical abuse), addiction and recovery, self esteem, difficult childhood, stress, and the challenges of everyday life.

I also enjoy working with couples (married, partnered and/or cohabiting) to address communication struggles, financial pressures, parenting difficulties and any challenges that can strain the bonds of a strong and healthy relationship.​ (I am Level 1 trained and certified in the Gottman Method.)

I ​ am pleased to ​have worked extensively with service members, veterans and their families (SMVF) and understand the specific and unique aspects of military life.

I provide a supportive, objective, non-judgmental safe environment for individuals to explore, understand, and heal. By accepting how “perfectly imperfect” each of us are, we can move towards a life of balance and wellness. I look forward to working with you!

  Laura Coyle, PhD, HSP-P Licensed Psychologist

Rather than continue to feel overwhelmed and hopeless, let’s work together to find creative ways for you or your child to restore hope and happiness to daily life.

I have immediate openings for children, adolescents, adults, couples, or families. I view therapy as an educational process that is intended to help you learn strategies and techniques to better manage your stress, relationships, and health. You are the expert on you, but together we can determine what you can do to improve your well-being.

Issues: I am happy to work with you or your child on a variety of concerns including, but not limited to: anxiety, persistent sadness and depression, mood swings, anger management, responses to trauma (including trauma related to military service or childhood sexual abuse), grief, behavioral concerns, autism spectrum disorders, attentional difficulties, excessive procrastination, challenges related to physical health concerns, relational conflicts, problematic alcohol or drug use, problematic eating patterns, and communication difficulties.

  Teshia Utley-McKoy, MS, LPC

I believe that therapy is a journey that requires work and one that is embarked on so that clients will become their own catalyst for change, experience growth, and become empowered. For many, the most difficult part of the journey is beginning it.

With over 15 years’ experience working with adolescents, teenagers, adults, and families to establish some normalcy in their lives, I can provide you with a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment where you can begin your journey towards wholeness, healing, and recovery.

I also have a real passion to serve the military population and understand the struggles and obstacles they face that are vastly different from civilians. I also understand how important it is to have a supportive shoulder and listening ear during challenging times; let me be that for you!

I believe it is very important to find a therapist that is a good fit and will effectively meet your needs. My goal is to assist you with developing an enhanced sense of self and for you to reach your maximum potential. If you are ready to make the first steps to begin your journey, call now to make an appointment!

I am looking forward to embarking on this journey with you! Call today!

  Sherry Horowitz, LCSW

Are you considering therapy to help you cope with life’s challenges? No matter how big or small you believe those challenges to be, I can help by providing a safe space filled with warmth and compassion! Together, we will explore your needs, and discuss solutions to help you feel better, improve coping skills, and strengthen healthy behaviors. I enjoy working with people of all ages! Whether you are needing individual, couple/marital or parenting/family assistance, I would be honored to partner with you or your family to reach your goals.

I view the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, where you are the expert on you! We will start where you are and go at your pace. I base my actions on you. When you need to talk, I provide a non judgmental, safe space to listen and validate. When you need more active guidance, I will provide feedback. Together we will strive to find your voice to get your needs met.

The rewards of talking with an understanding listener, who is not directly involved in your day to day life, can be extremely beneficial to your wellbeing! As a seasoned therapist, sharing my observations, insights, and tools, in an objective way, can provide a fresh perspective, in a way that a well-meaning friend or family member may not. I utilize many therapeutic approaches, tailored to your needs. I also rely heavily on a strength based and solution focused perspective.

Something led you to read this today. Take the next step and call for your first appointment!
I look forward to meeting you and working together on your journey toward a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life!
