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!

I believe there is power in learning to balance our lives emotionally and spiritually. I have 25-plus years of experience as a counselor, and have been able to help clients find emotional and general life balance. I draw from primary treatment modalities of Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic, and Existential Theories. At the conclusion of counseling, clients should be able to actively deal with their internal states in a way that allows them to feel more at peace with increased self-esteem, and well-being.

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.

Hi! I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor dedicated to helping individuals improve their mental health and gain a sense of well-being. Often times, we aren't living in the present. We're either stressed, depressed, anxious, too busy looking back on the past, or lost in thought with hopes for the future. This leaves us losing the ability to enjoy the present, and the present is what ends up creating our future, as well as creating the moments we will one day look back on. Together we will address the challenges you face, uncover your strengths, and cultivate new coping skills to help you be more present and navigate life's difficulties while gaining a greater ability to celebrate and appreciate life's successes. Through therapy, I aim to equip my clients with the necessary tools to regulate emotions, reduce anxiety, see other perspectives, and effectively cope with stress, ultimately enabling them to lead a more balanced life.

Call me Ben! I've been in private practice for 5 years and the mental health field at-large for close to a decade. I'm a big advocate for mindfulness (and ACT) and how it can be used alongside and incorporated into the therapeutic relationship to make tremendous strides in addressing one's mental health. I live in Asheville, North Carolina with my wife and our two cats. I love to go hiking and kayaking, am currently learning Spanish and the drums, and love a good gaming session with my friends.

What if you could become a mental gymnast, capable of flexing your mind to navigate challenges with resilience? What if I said that many emotional obstacles arise from a tension between our rational thoughts and the instincts shaped by our life experiences? Mental flexibility is key to resolving this inner conflict and promoting emotional well-being. As a North Carolina-based therapist specializing in mental health and substance use issues, my approach centers on meeting you where you are and establishing a foundation of trust and collaboration. I draw upon a blend of Humanistic, Interpersonal, Cognitive, and Behavioral theories to offer a tailored therapeutic experience. With a background in various settings like outpatient care, hospitals, and corrections facilities, I’ve refined my expertise in treating co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Taking the initiative to seek help is a brave act of strength that paves the way for transformative change over time. I look forward to speaking with you soon!

I’ve counseled people in some form or fashion for most of my life. When I was younger, friends came to me with their problems and left our conversation feeling better. Seeing the change in them was moving and made me realize I wanted to do this professionally. However, my journey to becoming a therapist was an unusual one. I was a monk for more than a decade and worked abroad. During that time, I gained a deeper understanding of the human experience and struggle. It shaped me as a therapist and has since helped me identify people’s deeper issues as well as give concrete and practical advice.

Hi, I'm Victoria, I've been honing my specialties for 30 years. I specialize in releasing trauma and old beliefs, rewiring mental habits to result in improved confidence, self esteem, clarity to follow dreams and goals. Since training in the bilateral therapies (EMDR, A.R.T., and Brainspotting) I've witnessed healing on a whole new level. Changing beliefs, thoughts and feelings that have been lifelong takes more than talking about, in my opinion. It requires change in the deep sub conscious, a place easily entered and "edited" utilizing these therapies, works much better and faster than only talking. This is my experience, and the reason why I specialize in these deeper, more sub conscious therapies.
