Anthony Konstantinidis, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

I have worked extensively with adolescents and adults who have struggled with depression, anxiety, trauma, ADHD, self-esteem issues, and life transitions to name a few. Additionally, the clients that I have helped have come from various diverse backgrounds, from being in the foster system, former juvenile hall clients, various SES backgrounds, different cultural/ethnic backgrounds, K-12 aged clients, adult clients, and court mandated clients. My goal is always to help reach goals client's have in addition to building our therapeutic relationship.

Clients know that I provide a safe space for them to be themselves and feel free to talk about whatever they need help on without ever feeling judged. My philosophy is that if a client feels supported, validated, and has a strong therapeutic relationship with me, that everything else will fall into place. I have a strong ability to help clients feel like their best selves by being empathic and understanding. I also help clients feel better by getting them to laugh as I feel as though laughter is important for feeling happier.

If you are looking for a therapist where you can feel like your best self, feel relaxed, and feel happier, look no further as I am the right for you.

We all struggle with obstacles in our lives that hold us back. We all can use extra support from an outside source to help us overcome these obstacles.

Roman Shain, LMFT, LPC

Philosophy of Care

I am a Licensed MFT, PCC, National Counselor Certified, Board Certified Telehealth Counselor, and a CAMFT Certified Supervisor. With over 25 years of clinical experience, I bring passion and expertise of helping chronically mentally ill adults and older adults as well as severely emotionally disturbed children. My youngest client was a 6-month-old baby learning to create secure attachment with his new foster family. My older client was a 92-year-old woman receiving hospice services. For over 15 years, I managed mental health programs at a local community mental health center. For over 10 years, I have been teaching graduate counseling centers at a local university. My research was featured in the Journal of Family Therapy.

I believe that most solutions to my clients’ problems are commonly found within themselves and their environment. Thus, my aim is to inspire clients to celebrate their culture, individuality and humanity. Furthermore, to prepare the client to link the divide between the therapy room and his/her environment, I combine experiential approaches, including role plays, awareness-building and critical-thinking exercises.

I believe my professional experiences as a psychotherapist and counselor educator have shaped me into a versatile professional for providing thoughtful and effective online psychotherapy. As a clinician, I believe in a supportive, thoughtful, and common sense way of addressing my clients' challenges and behaviors. I hope you find your experience our psychotherapy room useful and meaningful.
