Arika Adams

Business Bio

“Unconditional Positive Regard” - the idea of being accepted and supported, no matter what. Unconditionally. While it would be nice to always be surrounded by people who provide it, if you aren’t, you can find it in our space together. 

A firm believer in solution-focused, strengths-based, and action-oriented therapeutic approaches, Arika Adams, LCSW, has had over a decade of working with children and families who have experienced trauma, including significant work with adoptive families - particularly those adopting older children - and families struggling with addiction. Trained in EMDR, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, her goal is to help you feel empowered to make the decisions you feel will help you live your best life. At your first appointment, you’ll review items you want to work on, and set goals together to make a plan forward. The overarching goal is to help you feel supported and encouraged, never judged, for pursuing what is best for you.
