Sometimes men need an empathic, strong male therapist to gain customized, practical tools to build a good life. I help highly-sensitive, highly-intelligent people, including professionals in business, healthcare, the arts, education, emerging adults, and university students. They might have achieved success in some domain and now feel stuck, as past treatment modalities may have been ineffective. Many of these kind, caring, and strong individuals have survived significant trauma; I work to help them regain and improve agency, autonomy, competence, and relatedness through dialectical behavior therapy, teaching and learning, and social entrepreneurship, so they can live full lives with resilience, joy, and peace. Remote Therapy Only.
Welcome to CBT Gym. Using Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), my specialty is helping gay, bi and straight men learn tools to overcome anxiety and thrive. Unlike some traditional talking therapies, CBT is a practical and tools based approach to therapy that begins to work fast and the effects last long after your sessions end. Get the tools. Start thriving! Remote therapy only.

You are the expert of your own life, yet somehow you have lost the thread. My work with you will help you find your way back again. Our work together will likely include a variety of approaches that will be determined by your needs at the time. There may be strategies we will learn, concepts to explore and, sometimes, even homework. This is your time to heal, restore and rebuild yourself. I will be your guide. I am currently licensed in New York, South Carolina and Florida and I am completely online.
I offer free consultations so you can decide for yourself if you think we might be a good fit to work together.
I have 9 years of clinical experience working with individuals with trauma as well other mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, relationships, etc. I am formally trained in multiple therapies and tailor therapy to your needs and am committed to providing strengths-based therapy with goals that we will create together. I believe at one point or another everyone needs therapy and it should be a non-judgmental environment. I believe each person is able to reach their full potential and overcome any obstacle with the right help. I look forward to hearing from you! See my website for more info! Remote therapy only.
Are you an achievement-driven individual that has difficulty navigating the mental highs and lows of being an entrepreneur? If you’ve tried helping yourself and still feel stuck – I see you and you don’t have to keep pushing through on your own. Our sessions together will meet you where you’re at and focus on increasing awareness & processing internal obstacles like feeling disconnected, drained, and paralyzed by being overwhelmed. Let’s help you find fulfillment, authenticity and balance in your life and relationships.
I take the stance that you are the expert on your life. I can only look to try to understand your experience as much as possible. I am a very client-centered therapist and able to adapt to your needs. I am all about meeting you where you are at! I have specialty training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Gottman Couple’s Therapy, and Prepare/Enrich Couple’s Counseling.
I come from a Greek background and am passionate about the ancient Greek concept of Sophrosyne, which focuses on improving one’s character and maintaining an upbeat sound of mind. The idea is to lead a well-balanced life and gain a sense of control rather than feeling like your life is spiraling and you don’t have access to the brakes or steering wheel. So that is my approach toward helping others achieve their goals and create new pathways in life to better themselves. We all need to take time for ourselves and connect with a sense of inner peace.
In my 20+ years of experience, I believe in holistic, healing therapy, where there is no “typical treatment” for a “typical person.” So instead, I integrate a strength-based approach, incorporating Trauma-Focused CBT, Mindfulness Training, and Somatic Experiencing, all while incorporating my multicultural, international lens.
I have an extensive trauma therapy background, including sexual trauma and assault and psychological first aid. My specialties include mentoring through life transitions, personal growth, self-esteem, men’s mental health, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Most importantly, I have dedicated my profession to cultivating a mindful, intentional life.
Mikela loves working with high achievers who struggle with stress or anxiety related to work, home, and relationships. She is trained in EMDR, Gottman Method (level 3) and more, and loves helping people find healing and calm despite the demands of life. Remote therapy only.
