We are eclectic and accepting all of life's differences and challenges and want to help others lead a more fulfilling life.  We each work for you and believe that ultimately the client is the guide of the therapy process.

Who are the Clinicians?

Ankur Bhagat, MSW, LCSW

My ideal client is someone who has an idea of where they want to be but needs a little help to get there. Life can be challenging and finding someone who can develop an understanding of your life and the experiences you have had can be very valuable.  I enjoy working with individuals that are interested in changing the direction of their life towards things that are more positive and fulfilling.

Over the past 20 years, I have worked with clients experiencing different types of emotional pain due to changes in their life, clients who are struggling with grief and loss issues and clients that deal with anxiety and depression.  I also have a particular interest in working with individuals and couples that are struggling with infertility and pregnancy loss.  I also enjoy working with young adults who are navigating the challenges of adulthood. I am trained in EMDR and can use this intervention in the treatment of trauma.

Adina Ambar Middleman, MSW, LCSW

Life can send unexpected events our way and it’s important to find resources to help us cope, heal, and move beyond adversity. I have served an eclectic population in my 20+ years as a social worker and believe that my experiences both in and out of the therapy office have enhanced my ability to provide empathetic and multi-faceted clinical treatment to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. My expertise and interests focus on life's varying transitions. I enjoy working with those who may be struggling with family dynamics, relationship pain, school/work stressors and/or identity issues. 

I am  trained in EMDR which can be used in treatment with traumatic experiences.  

I am in network for BCBS and Tricare and will bill for out of network clients if this is preferred.

Beverly Pacos, MEd, LPC, NCC

I have been working in the mental health field for the past 20 years.  Throughout this time I’ve had the honor to work with amazing individuals, couples and families to help them recognize their personal strengths and achieve their goals.  I use an eclectic approach to help those overcome any life obstacles or challenges as well as client identified personal growth and change objectives. I am also trained in S.A.F.E EMDR (Somatic and Attachment Focused Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). 

I am in-network with Ambetter, BCBS, Cigna and Tricare insurances.  I also accept and therefore bill for out-of-network insurance plans.

**UPDATE COVID-19 protocol: 

I am only seeing clients virtually using Doxy Me which is a video platform. I will send you an email that you can click on at the time of your scheduled appointment.

I have been working with children, adults, and families for the last 25 years. During this time I have worked with the challenges brought on by job changes, divorce, trauma, blended families, depression, anxiety, and natural stages of life. I believe therapy is a gift that someone gives themselves to gain insight and understanding of self and others.
