The clinical team at Adika Counseling provides Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)  Internal Family Systems (IFS) and other client centered and solution-focused therapeutic interventions to decrease the frequency, intensity, duration and impact of stress and mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, borderline personality disorders and substance use disorders. 

We embrace AAPI, Latinx and BIPOC and LGBTQ+ identities and provide emotionally and physically safe space and therapeutic support to facilitate the untangling all of complex thoughts, emotions, and defense behaviors (aimed at self-protection) as we unburden the parts of individuals that need attentive time and space to be seen, heard, felt and understood.

​We collaborate with adults to understand the cognitive, behavioral and emotional impact of their experiences and relationships. Specifically we work with clients to improve interpersonal communication and relationships; ​develop assertiveness, self-efficacy, determination and autonomy; address family-of-origin challenges; adjust to life transitions (relocation, career changes, marriage pregnancy and childbirth); resolve trauma resulting from interpersonal violence, sexual assault and health/medical experiences; grief and loss; manage first/second generation American issues; learn  stress  and distress management and gain control of impulsive behaviors. 

We accept CareFirst/Anthem/BlueCross and BlueShield and Cigna and bill insurance companies directly. We are out-of-network providers for all other plans.

Adika Counseling provides services with sensitivity to factors of race, age, gender, development, gender, language, communication skills, sexual orientation, and other cultural factors.
