I am a licensed therapist as well as a certified rehabilitation counselor with nine years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, motivation, self-esteem, and confidence. Throughout my career I have also focused on helping individuals with a variety of different physical and emotional disabilities or anyone adjusting to major life changes. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and helping individuals embrace who they are. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person centered, and existential counseling. Core elements of my approach focus on self-discovery, autonomy, disability identity and acceptance I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Ficchi has been one of the best therapist I’ve worked with. She’s patient, kind, listens, but also challenges you to think- which is everything I need. I would highly recommend her to any one needing help navigating life’s challenges.

I really love working with dr Ficchi. She makes me feel so comfortable and understood. I can really see how I’ve improved since I started working with her, and I look forward to progressing with her more as we continue our sessions.
