Tara Aronstam
Self Pay Rate: $99

Tara Aronstam, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Tara Aronstam is a Resident in counseling, who specializes in self-esteem, body image, anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-improvement, grief and loss, child and adolescent counseling, and counseling for college students. Tara’s empathetic, positive approach to counseling is structured to help you get attuned to your authentic self and make the change you want to see in your life. Her main passion is to empower others. She loves helping them see their own potential and build on the skills they already have to create a balance within their life. Balance is tricky though, and it is different for every person. True balance can only come from a radical acceptance of who you are and where you’ve been coupled with a growth mindset towards the person you want to be.

Tara’s job is to help you and encourage you along your journey.

She believes that humans are born as a blank slate. As we grow, our experiences shape our personalities and lives. This means we are constantly growing and evolving. Change is not only possible, but it is a continuous process that we experience throughout our lives. Embracing intentional or unintentional change is key to living a well-balanced life.

Tara operates from a person-centered framework. This means you will be in control of a counseling session because you are the expert in your own life. Tara’s job is to use her expertise and professional training to help you find balance, but she is by no means the ultimate authority — you are! Tara believes that every person is in a different stage of their journey. She aims to meet them where they are at. Her choice of counseling modalities demonstrates that. Sometimes, she will add cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to a counseling session to better understand a client’s thoughts as opposed to their emotions. She will also use aspects from dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) to teach skills for regulating one’s emotions and interacting with the world.

Kara Kays
Self Pay Rate: $99

Kara Kays, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” - Maya Angelou

Kara believes that everyone is trying the best they can with what they have in this moment. If their best isn’t cutting it, or something isn’t working, it’s time to enlist support to help cultivate change. She teams with her clients in a non-judgmental and respectful manner, working together towards the client’s goals.

Kara meets her clients where they are, in their journey, so they can have a positive and meaningful working relationship within the therapeutic realm. She believes that change begins the moment we, clients and clinicians, acknowledge the need for change and begin to put energy towards developing change. Through this energy, we are able to grow and shift through self-awareness, in order to develop lasting changes.

Kara enjoys working with teens and young adults, as well as adults who are working through a transitional period in their lives, be it divorce, a new job, welcoming a new baby or another new member to the family. She also excels at working on past traumas for people of all ages.

As a LMFT, Kara works from a systems approach with her clients. This involves individuals resolving their problems in the context of a system, such as a family, work unit, etc., where many issues stem from.

Kara is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This is a technique and treatment that helps to alleviate the distress connected with traumatic memories. In addition, she is trained in TFCBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and MST (Multisystemic Therapy).

Life is about learning how to deal with challenging and trying times in a way that works for you. Her goal is to empower you to find your own internal resources. She provides the support needed for you to gain a new perspective on how to create change.

Cathrin prefers a solution focused approach that is unique to every client. What works for you specifically? You’ll explore that question and more in a counseling session with Cathrin. She integrates other techniques which she has picked up over the years- always keeping it individualized to the client.

Jennifer Morales
Self Pay Rate: $99

Jennifer Morales, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Jennifer believes in the innate strength everyone has to overcome struggles and accomplish goals. Sometimes, it can be hard to believe you have what it takes to make it one more day, or to get to the next stage in life. Jennifer is passionate about uncovering your strengths and putting them to use, so you can truly experience a happy, fulfilling life.

We don’t all start in the same place or have the same goals. Jennifer loves the uniqueness every client brings to a session and works with you- as a person- and not a problem to be solved. Life isn’t all sunshine, and Jennifer wants to make sure you have someone to walk with you as you heal and grow in this difficult time.

Jennifer is also passionate about building a relationship with her clients. She believes that healing and growth are both completely possible, but only with a client-counselor relationship that is built on trust, understanding, and compassion. Therefore, she works hard to make sure you feel comfortable and welcomed in a counseling session. When one person truly believes in another, and fights with them, true growth can come from it.

Jennifer brings unique and helpful experience to her counseling profession. Like everyone, she is not just her career, and that makes what she can bring to a counseling session all the more powerful.

Jennifer is a military spouse and a mother and understands both the beauty and hardships of both. She has experience as a victim advocate volunteer, which compounds her empathy and compassion that is at the core of her practice. Jennifer also has experience working with kids and adolescents as a teacher.

She is honored everytime a client allows her to walk with them through their hardships. It is not an easy decision to make and demonstrates your bravery and strength. She understands that a relationship has to be built, and trust doesn’t always come easy. That’s okay! She is excited to meet you and begin walking with you on this journey.

Jennifer specializes in Coaching, Cognitive-Behavioral (CBFT), Solution-Focused, Narrative, and the Gottman Method.
