Anca Niculae, LMFT

I am trained in The Nurtured Heart Approach, EMDR II, Brainspotting II, and the Gottman Approach Level II. I enjoy working with all ages and issues, and am very comfortable addressing issues related to trauma, relationships, parenting, sexuality, and major life changes. I use mindfulness, DBT and CBT skills, and can find it beneficial to include your religious, spiritual or personal culture beliefs in our work.


DR. Nicole Lewis, ND

I am a Naturopathic doctor who believes in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. I do collaborative mental health visits with Dr. Brooke Schneider bringing in a natural perspective with specialty testing, diet and supplements. I also specialize in hormones (thyroid, adrenal and sex hormones) pre and post natal care.


Dr. Brooke Schneider, D.O.

I am an adult, child and adolescent psychiatrist, and I work from a whole-person perspective. During my medical training, I gained experience with complementary and alternative modalities including osteopathic manipulative medicine, cranial therapy, and holistic approaches to illnesses, both physical and mental, with a focus on restoring wellness. As an osteopathic physician, I keep these osteopathic principles at the core of my practice: “the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit”, and “the body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance”. My goal in working with children and families is to provide tools to increase balance and wellness, so that the body and mind can self-heal.
