Kari Tuggle, ASW

CA ASW # 93858

Supervised by Suzanne Vargas, LCSW

My therapeutic approach is integrative and holistic pulling from my background as a humanistic psychotherapist and Registered Dieitian. I believe that individuals and families are innately able to heal, have many assets, and are the experts of their own experiences. I build on this belief to help clients uncover their unique strengths and resiliency to work towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Compassionate, empathic, and encouraging, I strive to create a welcoming space, where you can explore your individuality, process your unique challenges, and develop new skills and insights. Our work together is tailored to you, often drawing from strengths based, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness-based modalities. Whether you are struggling with an eating disorder, experiencing depression or anxiety, caught in addiction, or navigating a life transition, I will walk by you in your journey of growth and healing.

Kari works with teens, transitional age youth, adults, and older adults as well as couples and families. She is LGBT aware and affirming.

Her fee is $140 for individuals and $160 for couples/family therapy and she accepts Cigna.

Stephanie Neutz, AMFT#117511

Supervised by Suzanne Vargas, LCSW #79703

My therapeutic goal with clients is to be able to provide them with a not only a safe environment, but a space filled with empathy, grace, and humor to allow processing of their emotions, life events, and to help foster their personal growth.  When clients feel heard and seen without any judgment, their potential for change occurs organically and often in ways they may have never thought were ever possible. I do believe change is possible for most people, and at any stage of their life – therapy is an excellent place to begin that journey.

I employ various theories and interventions, as needed for each client, and I strongly identify with a humanistic approach, where it is focused heavily on client strengths. I believe in access and equity in mental healthcare and reducing the stigma that unfortunately still surrounds mental health. I work with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions (i.e. career changes, divorce, family changes), substance use disorders, and issues surrounding self-esteem and self-worth.  I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, 117511, and a Registered Associate Professional Clinical Counselor #7310 with a master’s degree in counseling psychology from John F. Kennedy University (now a part of National University).

Stephanie works with teens, adults, and couples. She is LGBT aware and affirming.

Her fee is $140 for individuals and $160 for couples/families and she accepts Cigna.

Karen Salas-Caballero, LMFT

I am a bilingual (Spanish/English) therapist who is passionate about intergenerational healing. My work with clients is trauma-informed, meaning that I take into consideration that one’s trauma may manifest itself in our everyday life in various ways. I also firmly believe that the effects of colonialism are vast and pervasive in our communities, which is why healing from intergenerational trauma is my passion.  I identify as a therapist of color/Chicana in a larger body, and have an intersectional understanding of the systemic effects of colonialism as well as anti-fatness in our communities. My goal is to support clients using principles from Health at Every Size, Body Trust, mindfulness, person-centered therapy, and anti-colonialism.  My specialties include: working with female-identifying adults of color, first-and second-generation immigrants, codependency issues in relationships and with families, body image concerns, and survivors of domestic violence. 

As my client, I will work with you to support you in meeting your goals for therapy.  You are a multi-faceted individual with many strengths, and I look forward to exploring those together. Thank you for having me on this healing journey with you.

Karen works with children, teens, adults, and families.

Her fee is $140 for individuals and $160 for couples/families.
