TALKING WITH A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR

— What is it like?

We think it’s a little like talking with an old friend. One who knows you well, listens thoroughly and cares about you enough to tell you the truth. We are highly skilled professionals and compassionate listeners.

Have you finished school only to realize you’re still not sure what’s the next step? Has it been so long since you’ve felt like yourself that you don’t know where to begin? My experience working with recent grads, college students and with youth and their families brings insight into the specific needs and issues facing these unique phases of life.

Kimberly Bussell, LPCC

Licensed Clinical Counselor

Couples: does it feel more like living with a roommate than with your lover? Are you arguing so much that you wonder if it’s worth the effort anymore? Feeling disconnected from your lover? I can help you reconnect. I use Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) developed by Dr. Sue Johnson (author of Hold Me Tight) to help couples truly hear one another and connect.

Matthew Lewandowski, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Sometimes it’s not clear what’s bothering you. You just know you don’t feel quite like yourself. I offer personalized talk therapy and/or Art Therapy (if you wish) to help you learn more about yourself and find your path forward.
Tracy Carter, LPCC

Licensed Counselor, Art Therapist

I help teens, kids, and their parents to understand one another. Behavior often tells us what kids are having trouble saying with words. I can help your child connect their feelings and behaviors so they can learn how to get their true needs met. I’ll teach them self-awareness, emotion regulation and coping skills to manage their symptoms both in and out of therapy.
Morgan Blumenfeld, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Helping you find peace is the heart and soul of my work. Whether it’s peace in your relationship or in your own well-being, my sessions are focused on helping you connect to the beliefs, skills, and habits that move you toward your desired future.
Jessica Wade, LPCC-S

Licensed Clinical Supervisor

15 years of counseling experience has taught me that we must examine what is happening beneath your symptoms. Your body holds on to painful memories and the engine inside revs continually until it finally cannot withstand any longer. It emits uncomfortable body sensations and emotions until the pain becomes enough to get your full attention. I’ll help you “turn off the engine” of trauma so you can engage a system of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions that help you feel more like yourself again.

Christina Gates, LPCC-S

Licensed Clinical Counselor, Supervisor

Do you keep finding yourself in the same toxic relationships? Repeating the same patterns? Making the same choices, even though you swore you would never do THAT again? You’re not alone. I’ll help you uncover how these cycles occur so you can make choices you feel proud of.
Benjamin Meyer, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

You’ve been struggling on your own for too long. Even strong, independent, doing-it-all women seek professional counseling. The truth is, they know that accepting professional help isn’t a sign of weakness. They know that seeking a professional is a sign that they know how to use their resources so that they don’t have to struggle.
Janalisa Menefee, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a compassionate listener, and focus on creating a safe and supportive environment to help you with YOUR goals. I will offer support, encouragement and guidance in helping you lead a happier, healthier, and less stressful life.
Dr. Mia Sherman Hall
