Dr. Tomike Lana is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). She received her doctorate degree from The Adler School of Professional Psychology. Her many years of training and clinical work focused on providing trauma informed services to under-served and at-risk populations (children, youth, and adults). Most recently, she has worked with refugees and asylum seekers, who required great sensitivity and an unconventional approach to providing psychotherapy.
Dr. Lana views psychological difficulties from a holistic perspective. She believes behavior does not exist within a vacuum and healing involves several participants including the therapist. As a result, she employs multiple modalities of treatment: Adlerian interventions, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. She also utilizes motivational interviewing and is able to offer Christian faith-based principles to guide the direction of therapy if preferred.
Dr. Lana has significant experience working with self-injury, depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety disorders. Recently, she also obtained her certification with the Prepare-Enrich program to aid in her work with couples. She prides herself in her ability to work with diverse populations and leverages this experience to effectively treat acculturation/adjustment issues.
