My name is Mika (pronounced Mee-ka) and I am a clinical social worker and trained therapist with over 16 years of experience, providing therapy to different populations with varied mental health challenges.
I hold a Masters of Social Work degree from Temple University, and have since continued to learn and grow obtaining further trainings in different therapy modalities.
I completed : Level 1 training in Internal Family Systems (IFS); Training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR); Level 1 training of Brainspotting; and certification training in Trial-based Cognitive Therapy. I also have had trainings in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I enjoy drawing on my knowledge of these modalities and prefer to treat using a combination of my skills rather than being a ‘purist’.
I love what I do on a daily basis – getting to know and work with my clients – and in addition I also enjoy reading, and baking, spending time with my family and our cat and dog.
