Hi there, I am Jen. Do you want to improve the quality of your life? Do you want to make long-lasting changes that improve areas of your life such as work and relationships? I empower clients to overcome the daily challenges of dealing with such issues as depression (or other mood disorders), anxiety, PTSD/Trauma, and grief. I'm here to help clients (ages 10 & up) get back to a place in their life where they feel more balanced, secure and to a place where they feel happy with their overall quality of life. I do believe in a holistic approach that focuses on the mind-body-spirit connection. I utilize various techniques that include mindfulness, helping you identify and address irrational thoughts, motivational interviewing and more. I work with clients to identify treatment goals at their 1st appointment, if possible and I also like to assign therapeutic "homework" since this helps clients practice and eventually acquire the skills they need to feel better about themselves and their lives. No matter the issue, I'm here to help. Seeking therapy is a brave thing to do and I will provide a safe space to help you heal and grow. In our sessions, I will provide empathy, active listening and humor to help you overcome what is troubling you. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Things can feel out of control and you don’t know how to slow it down. Life can feel like a whirlwind sometimes. Maybe thoughts are irrational, but can’t stop them. Maybe you are starting to realize you might not make the best choices. Maybe you have driven yourself into a state of panic. Maybe your child has hit a breaking point and you don’t know how to help. We can figure this out together. I want to help you achieve that balance you are looking for so you can start living the life you want. I have worked with children and adults for the past 13 years in community mental health, in schools, and in private practice.

Life can be hard and just "raggedy" at times. I know and I get it. For some, reaching out for help is the last thing you may want to do but I would love to walk with you on your journey to healing. Would you believe me if I told you that the answers you are seeking are already within you? I will merely be your guide and safe place to allow you to discover these answers. There is so much more in store for you versus the current narrative you have been rehearsing to yourself. I have a passion for “meeting people where they are” by providing crisis management, solution focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I believe in providing quality services and working with those by addressing a wide range of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, poor self-esteem and stress management. I believe that therapy can assist one with identifying the root of recurring issues that challenges one’s well-being by developing healthy coping skills and gaining awareness.

Hi. Welcome to my Grow professional profile! Do you ever wonder, "What is going on."? If your inner dialogue is saying, "Yes that's me, exactly, finally somebody who gets it!" I believe that nobody actually has it all together, but that there are those that pretend like they have it all together but inside feel like an imposter making it day by day and those that don't pretend and are also making it day by day. I like spending time with my husband of many many many years and our 3 children, but mostly my dogs. I enthusiastically invite both those who are high functioning and those who are not functioning persons seeking to improve their overall wellbeing. I don't judge whether you are an LSU fan or a North Carolina fan. All can benefit from mental health services. (maybe one group of fans over the other). My current specific areas of clinical interests are of grief and pregnancy loss of which I constantly explore new treatment approaches and client experiences. I have over 25 years of clinical experience working with diverse classifications of diagnoses, ethnicity, ages, and cultural backgrounds. The most frequent symptoms I can help with are managing ADHD, Depression, Bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma, parenting, burnout, insomnia, COVID trauma, grief, and anger. I utilize a mix of CBT and motivational interviewing low key with a fair amount of optimism because CBT helps measure things and motivational interviewing is more people-friendly. FYI I am an experienced LPC-S licensed by the LA licensed Professional Counselors Board of Examiners 3997. I am also a board approved supervisor in Louisiana. I am a LCMHC in the state of North Carolina (LPC) 19111. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

Hello, my name is Randolph, and my goal is to help you achieve success, however you define it. My goal is to help you achieve your goals. In the past, I have been confused and tried to do all the things that everyone else told me to do, but it just did not feel right to me. I changed my major in college 3 times, took time off after undergrad trying to figure out my next steps, and found myself in situations in which I had to bet on myself because everyone told me that I should pick door number 1 while I knew I needed to take door number 2. I am glad I picked door number 2. As a psychologist, I help people find their full authentic selves, especially amid unfriendly, unaffirming spaces. We will figure out what has led to your frustration, anxiety, and burnout, and how we can turn things around. Together, we will craft a clear vision of what you want your future to be and the steps to become your best possible self.

Imagine life is like a journey completely in your control but you feel stuck. Choices you make dictate life’s obstacles and they can be tricky. Life’s journey comes with no instruction pamphlet or ready-made companions. A path unfolds and you decide what to do and who to trust along the way. As you journey you begin to see things you want, potential companions, places you want to explore, and tools you can use to make travels simpler. There are so many choices to make with no time to stop and contemplate the best decision; you have to keep going by making choices every day, about everything. Decisions and deadlines do not wait. Consequences of decisions do not wait for preparations of readiness. Age does not determine how hard life can be nor deter reality. Whether you are age 5 or 95, you have to wake up daily and continue life’s journey, but it is not always an easy task. My theoretical orientation is Person-Centered Therapy and Gestalt Therapy. Let me be your Phoenix! I believe life’s tools are inside of us, self-actualization, self-trust, coping strategies, and the willingness to grow. We simply must explore them. At Rapunzel's Phoenix Counseling Services, I help toddlers, children, adolescents, adults, families, and the LGBTQIAPK community. Online Counseling Services are available upon request.
