As an experienced family therapist, I have the skills and knowledge needed to help families navigate even the most challenging situations. What sets me apart is my unique perspective as a former stay-at-home mom to now-grown children, which gives me a deep understanding of the struggles and milestones that families face. If you're looking for a compassionate and experienced therapist who can make a real difference in your family's life, I invite you to consider reaching out to me for help.

Thank you for stopping by my page! What you will experience as my client will always be based upon the following: professionalism, care, and experience. I consider effective mental health treatment to be a life-changing experience and it is my goal as your therapist to support you 100% in reaching your goals. My philosophy is this: "I'll always help if you'll always try." I have worked with a wide variety of people, and find that almost all of us can connect as fellow humans. I am currently licensed in North Carolina, West Virginia, Florida, Tennessee, and California, and make my home in beautiful Southern Oregon. PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE A FULL-TIME PRACTICE OUTSIDE OF GROW AND IF YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT CHOICE IS MADE FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY OR 2-3 DAYS AWAY, I WILL LIKELY HAVE TO MOVE IT OUT SEVERAL DAYS. IF YOUR NEED IS MORE EMERGENT, THEN PLEASE ACCESS CARE LOCALLY OR YOU MAY FIND ANOTHER THERAPIST ON GROW THERAPY THAT IS AVAILABLE SOONER. I TRY TO BALANCE HELPING AS MANY AS I CAN WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE CARE. THANK YOU, SAM

Hi! My name is Carli Sterling (she/her) I am an LMFT in CA. I have a bachelors degree in psychology from UC Santa Cruz and Masters in Counseling Psychology from Palo Alto University. Trauma informed care and eating disorders are my wheelhouse. Wheelhouses? Wheel homes. Outside of therapy, I enjoy yoga, wakeboarding, producing music via GarageBand and Soundtrap; investing in stocks, cryptocurrency, and blue chip art. During the pandemic I taught myself how to change fancy watch batteries and install closetmaid systems. I have a 3 year old mini me. I work from home and she is the worst co worker I’ve ever had. Always open to consult and help in any way I can.

Deep within, I believe everyone holds the keys to a life of profound meaning and joy. By discerning their dreams and charting their personal journeys, my clients unlock doors to lives they cherish all the more.

Hello! My name is Yvette Weeks, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My therapeutic approach is centered on fostering meaningful connections, emotional well-being, and personal growth. I work with individuals, children/adolescents, and families, focusing on a wide range of issues, including relationship difficulties, anxiety, communication challenges, behavior issues, parenting challenges, and life transitions. I'm committed to helping others through their challenges to discover their strengths, learn new techniques, and create positive change. I believe that everyone deserves to live a fulfilling and emotionally healthy life- in whatever way that looks like to the individual person or family. As a therapist who has personally experienced trauma, depression, and anxiety, I deeply understand the challenges and feelings that accompany these struggles. It is not always easy to seek support from others (believe me, I took a very long time to reach out to someone), and knowing that I can play a part in helping others feel better and do better, drives me to continuously learn and provide the best possible care. It is an honor to be a therapist, and I am dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those I have the opportunity to work with.

Hi! I am so glad you're here. Are you looking for a therapist you can connect with and will help you grow? I am passionate about helping teens and adults heal from traumatic experiences and overcome mental health challenges. It takes a lot of bravery to ask for help and examine your patterns of behavior. It is a honor to walk alongside clients and help them create meaningful change and healing. I am trained in the cutting edge treatment method of EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). EMDR is primarily used to help treat and heal trauma, anxiety, phobias, and distressing life events. Many of the clients report symptom relief through EMDR that they were previously unable to achieve in talk therapy alone, I would love to talk more and see if EMDR is a good fit for you!

As a licensed Clinical Social Worker I can provide a safe and welcoming place where you can feel open to share those concerns or worries.

Hello! Thanks for reviewing the information for my online practice, "Coleman Counseling". My name is Mrs. Michelle Coleman. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have worked in the field for over 20 years. I specialize in mood disorders, adjustment disorders, & addressing life stressors. Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and the client and is action oriented. Previous counseling experiences have allowed me to work with individuals from a variety of backgrounds, with a host of presenting concerns. I am dedicated to working collaboratively with individuals to help them bring about positive changes in their lives. I use solution-focused and cognitive behavioral techniques to assist with concerns. Solution-focused techniques work well for individuals who present to reduce or relieve their symptoms. Cognitive therapy works best for individuals who have issues related to negative and unsuccessful patterns of behavior and make plans to change those patterns. My goal is to assist individuals with applying these strategies to their current goals and plan of action for change.

Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT We are all unique, yet we seem to struggle in similar ways. Have you found yourself repeating the same patterns over and over thinking you could do it differently but found yourself, yet again, in the same place? There is a way to move through painful patterns and create change. Experiences of trauma, in all forms, create challenges in our daily lives. With empathy, true understanding, and knowledge of ourselves, we can learn to navigate through life with more awareness. If this is relatable to you, please reach out and we can work together to create more of the things you want in your life. My background is in person-centered therapy. Negative life experiences prevent us from enjoying our successes and preparing for future success in personal relationships (with others and ourselves), work, and parenting. As we move out of our old thought patterns, we can create new experiences and attitudes. Let me assist your next journey! I have supported children, adults, and elders in their efforts to create new approaches and desired change in their lives. I would be honored to support you and your journey to get more of what you want and need in your life.
