Approach To Care
Rojina McCarthy (she/her) is a psychotherapist who is a first-generation South Asian immigrant of Nepali decent. She is a relational therapist who believes that a trusting and collaborative relationship is foundational to healing. She strives to foster curiosity about all parts of an individual, their connections with others, and the impact of these connections on their well-being. She utilizes a person-centered, systems-based, and multicultural lens in psychotherapy. She assists individuals in identifying treatment goals related to both a reduction in symptoms and an increased ability to live an authentic life. She helps individuals explore issues related to their various cultural and social identities and how dynamics of power and privilege may impact individuals and their interactions in their social environments.
Rojina strongly believes in a holistic, relational-focused, mind-body approach to healing and recovery. She uses principles and practices she learned from her trainings through Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Brainspotting, Adaptive Internal Relational (AIR) Network, and The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, as well as cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based techniques. She helps individuals build awareness about the impact of biopsychosocial stressors in their nervous systems and explore and identify resources for emotional regulation.
She has experience working with individuals with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and developmental trauma. She also has experience helping individuals who want to explore issues of racial trauma, immigration and acculturative stress, diaspora living, and identity development. She is committed to supporting individuals in their healing journey through a trauma-informed lens.
