Anastasia Fujii

Therapy

I believe that therapy begins with the building of a strong, collaborative relationship. Through the creation of this alliance, it becomes possible to discover an individual, couple or family’s goals for treatment and to engage dynamically in the therapeutic process. I see therapy as a space for growth and healing, co-created and nurtured by both client and clinician. My practice is psychodynamic, relational, and at its core holistic, recognizing and integrating the biological, psychological, and social aspects of experience, as well as the individual, institutional, and cultural roots of issues as they arise. I have a deep awareness of the profound impact of oppression on the psyche and am dedicated to maintaining a practice that is affirming of all identities and experiences. Areas of expertise include LGBTQ+ identity, family planning, addressing trauma, and surviving chronic illness, though I welcome diversity of focus in my practice.”

Anastasia holds a Master of Social Work from the Smith College School for Social Work and has trained as a full-spectrum doula. Anastasia is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Tara Nayak

 Naturopathic Medicine

As a naturopathic doctor I am trained and happy to handle any health concern as a general practitioner. I specialize in the treatment of chronic diseases, digestive issues, and hormonal imbalances. Health puzzle solving is my passion! Whether a patient is dealing with an acute illness, trying to prevent future problems, or dealing with a lifelong health issue that hasn’t been figured out, I work to uncover the underlying causes of health concerns and provide lasting solutions that fit into my patients’ busy lifestyles!

I hope to provide the Philadelphia community with a different option: a doctor that listens and works to understand rather than just to eliminate symptoms. In clinical practice I use the world’s best technologies such as genomic and microbiome analysis to assess whole health combined with treatments focused on personalized nutrition and botanical (herbal) supplementation.​ I am currently accepting patients of all ages and offering a free 10 minute phone consultation as an opportunity to chat about how I can help you feel better! Please visit my website here .

Ariana Tosatto

Therapy

As a professional counselor, art therapist and Certified Hakomi Practitioner (a unique, mindfulness-based, somatic therapy), I utilize expressive and body-based modalities that move the therapeutic process past, “just talking”, into deeper layers of experience. The process of talking is typically linear, rational and often relies on information we already know. However, the lived experience of our personal challenges are often quite the opposite: non-linear, messy and confusing. Because of this, we need approaches that get us “out of our head” and instead into our hearts, bodies and then minds. From a more integrated perspective, we not only see our blockages with more clarity and compassion, but further strengthen the connection with our inner- most self that drives us towards growth, and the personal transformation we are seeking.

In an atmosphere of safety and genuine collaboration, I help my clients become aware of unconscious habits of body and mind, building insight into how these patterns lend us protection while also inhibiting deep healing and creative growth. The people I work with are individuals who are seeking personal growth, and are interested in dynamic, creative and engaging therapeutic modalities.

Some of the areas I specialize in are:

  • Pre and postpartum support & support for parents
  • Life transitions (marriage, childbirth, moving, etc.)
  • Working through familiar patterns of feeling and reacting that never seem to bring satisfaction
  • Inner child work
  • Self- esteem issues
  • Attachment-based relational work focused on couples or families
