I believe that everyone may experience unfortunate circumstances during their lifetime. When this happens, we may need a helping hand in managing our difficulties. It takes a brave person to ask for assistance but this is the first step in the healing process. If you would like for me to be that helping hand, please contact me. I offer Tele-Counseling at various times in order to meet the busy schedules that many people have in their lives.

I believe that persons seeking counseling for any reason are asking themselves, “Who am I?” Professional counseling helps you return to the authentic self that you were born with before life experiences pulled you away from it. Therefore, I ask you to bring to our sessions the thing that is generating the most energy for you that day; the good, the bad, and the ugly. It may not seem to apply to the reason that you started therapy, but it will. Because everything matters.

Feeling overwhelmed? There are kids, parents, work, spouse, school, and when you think of all the things your head feels like it might explode. When you add in anxiety, depression, frustration from being unable to focus, grief, or any other mental health struggle, it probably adds to the whirlwind you feel like you're stuck in. Maybe you've been told "it could be worse," or to "be grateful," but this didn't make you feel any better. No matter how big or small you think your situation is, your emotions and what you're feeling are valid and important, and worthy of acknowledgment and exploration. It's time to take care of you and seek help, in a safe, empathetic, and judgment-free space. Once you feel heard and validated, we can dive in together to explore where your feelings may come from. I understand it can be hard to reach out for help, but I will meet you where you are emotionally and proceed at your pace. Allow me to join you in your journey.

Hi, my name is Debbie. Are you struggling with anxiety, fear, depression, anger, disappointment, trauma or difficult relationships? I have worked with all ages and walks of life in my 25 years of experience. As a seasoned therapist. I believe that a successful outcome of therapy goals begins with a harmonious relationship with the client. This begins with a clear understanding of the needs and desires of the client. My approach is to have a kind, caring and sensitive demeanor, yet, direct and firm as needed to achieve success. I strive to listen well and give appropriate feedback. I attribute my successful record as a therapist to having the education, knowledge, work experience, and confidence to work with each client and consider it a privilege to work with each one.

Hey! I am happy that you are here :) You deserve to be seen and heard, just as you are. Navigating late-stage capitalism can feel overwhelming, isolating and yucky. We live lives of stress, pain, existential dread and go through the motions to get by. But there has to be more....right? I believe that within the context of relationship, healing can occur. The therapeutic bond and trust we build is where the work begins. I serve as a warm witness as you begin your journey toward the life you want to create. My approach to therapy is transpersonal, humanistic and deep. I view things from both a systems and attachment perspective. In my own healing journey, I struggled to identify with the Medical Model approach to treatment, focused on "managing" ourselves and numbing or altering symptoms with coping strategies rather than a deeper exploration. I believe it is important to break down the assumption that human suffering is purely a genetic biochemical or neurophysiological process. There are larger systems at play that influence us and the way we feel in the world. It is critical to acknowledge the impact that systems of oppression have on individuals, communities, and society at large. I try to put into perspective how the privileges I hold impact the way that I am able to navigate the world. I enjoy working with clients who also want to engage in unraveling their relationship to capitalism. I am a white, cis-gender female. I am neurodivergent, queer, chronically ill and a survivor. I am the eldest daughter of an immigrant. I exist and reside on land stolen from the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families in clinical settings since 2015. My experience includes direct care work at a residential treatment center for adolescents, interning at a psychiatric hospital for youth and adolescents, a wilderness therapy program and a residential substance abuse treatment program for pregnant and parenting women. I also supported children and families on the Qualla Boundary as a therapist on the Integrated Child Welfare Team. I love working with individuals who are anxious, ADHD/ASD, traumatized, hyper-aware, interested in understanding themselves better, neurodivergent, high masking, highly sensitive, people pleasers, highly intuitive, symbolic thinkers, ✨magical✨, LGBTQIA2S+, survivors of intergenerational trauma.

Hello, I am Wanda Kellyman, a dedicated and highly qualified professional specializing in mental health and personal development. My extensive qualifications include National Certified Counselor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Life Coach, and Mindfulness Practitioner. With these credentials, I've honed my expertise in providing transformative therapy and guidance to individuals seeking personal growth and healing. My therapeutic approach is rooted in holism and strength-based principles. I understand that each person is a complex being with interconnected aspects of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Rather than focusing solely on problems or deficits, I empower my clients by highlighting their innate strengths and resources, helping them effectively navigate life's challenges. To create a more engaging and dynamic therapeutic process, I integrate various forms of creative expression into my sessions. Through poetry, art, music, meditation, and movement, I encourage clients to explore and communicate their inner emotions and thoughts. This creative dimension not only fosters self-expression but also deepens self-awareness and introspection, leading to profound personal insights and growth. By harmonizing my certifications, experiences, and passion for holistic well-being, I strive to cultivate a supportive and compassionate environment where individuals can flourish and embark on their unique journeys of self-discovery and transformation. I firmly believe in the immense potential within each person to lead a fulfilling and purposeful life, and I am wholeheartedly committed to guiding them on that empowering path toward mental and emotional well-being. The overarching theme of my approach can be summarized in three words: Engagement, Empowerment, and Bliss. Through engagement in creative and reflective processes, clients find the power to empower themselves and ultimately achieve a state of blissful well-being.

Have you been having a hard time trying to manage your thoughts and feelings alone? Are you frustrated with trying to be heard or understood by people around you who just don’t seem to get it, or are you frustrated with yourself for not doing what is in your best interests? Are you overwhelmed, not taking the best care of yourself that you could be, or longing to feel better? If any of this feels familiar, I want to celebrate you for taking steps to get connected to a helping professional to aid you in working to change that! I have over a decade of experience supporting and assisting women, men, and young adults in their work to make positive changes to their health and lives, via diagnostic assessments, pre-surgical psychological evaluations, talk therapy, and medical case management services. I have successfully assisted clients living with anxiety, depression, ADHD, chronic health conditions (HIV, Diabetes, chronic pain, etc.), relationship issues, sexual health concerns, financial difficulties, parenting challenges, codependency, disordered eating, and intimate partner violence to better understand and manage their mental health symptoms and improve their overall functioning. I believe that engaging in therapy is one of the best things a person can do to safely carve out defined time to regularly focus on learning how to navigate internal and external stressors and challenges better, as well as how to attend to, care for, and love the self. I look forward to supporting and empowering you as we start where you are and work together to find ways to improve your quality of life and create more sustainable inner peace going forward.
