About Us

Welcome to Saratoga Therapy!

We believe in the power of deep connections to yourself and others, the importance of the physical body in psychotherapy, and seeing every person as part of a larger community.

We are a group of therapists dedicated to providing support to our clients so they can overcome feeling stuck in some areas of their lives, change unhelpful repetitive patterns and be able to live a more joyful life.


We are trained in various therapy techniques so you will receive the type of support that works best for you. The underlying philosophy is one of relational focus and the importance of both mind and body in the therapeutic journey. Let us be your partner as you embark on the next step of your healing journey.

Our Therapists

Lena-Axelsson.jpg

Lena Axelsson

Lena is a somatically informed Relational Psychotherapist who specializes in the treatment of trauma. What does this mean? Many people in our culture have suffered some form of trauma in childhood or their adult life – illness, physical harm, emotional neglect, or verbal abuse – but essentially trauma is anything that causes a person to feel worthless helpless, insecure, or even endangered. This type of deep experience impacts the whole being and dictates the way we function in our lives.

Rebecca Roth

Rebecca has been working in the mental health field for over 25 years, counseling individuals, families, and groups in a variety of settings, which has allowed her to work with a highly diverse population of people. Gaining knowledge and experience in working with diversity, and being able to offer services equitably, are core values of hers – which of course involves ongoing examination and acknowledgment of her limitations.

Inga Knudson

Inga received her graduate degree from the USF in Counseling Psychology and her bachelor’s degree from the UCSC in Feminist Studies. Both universities emphasize a systems-thinking approach which has traveled with Inga into her psychotherapy practice. Systems thinking paints a fuller picture of how we navigate the world within and around us. In psychology this is known as a bio-psycho-spiritual-social approach to therapy, this means we explore what it means to be you from multiple lenses.
