"There can be no transforming of darkness into light ... without emotion." -Jung Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the core of my training. It embraces the belief systems of the past that affect your present. It's a state-of-mind that defines thinking that affects emotional awareness. To become aware is not to change, but to understand and accept. Carrying guilt or shame of the past, triggers the conflict of now. I don't offer advice - I offer choices - a chance to choose your own method of healing that fits you - not something others feel 'should' be. Come. Sit. Talk. Let's wander your path together. Licensed in Kentucky, Ohio, South Carolina, Washington DC, Arizona, and Florida

Hello and welcome to MindWell Counseling, LLC! My name is Katie Crow (she/her), LISW-S, LCSW and I am the owner of MindWell Counseling, LLC. I am a licensed clinical mental health therapist and hold my Masters degree in Social Work from The University of Akron. I originally began my career in the corporate HR world and after 10 years decided I wasn’t following my true passion. My passion is working with adults who are on a journey of self-growth. I started MindWell Counseling, LLC in 2022 because life has been more difficult over the past few years, and wanted to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to express your thoughts, feelings and to be yourself. I believe each person can heal and my role is to provide you with support, feedback, education, and therapeutic interventions so you can. I utilize a collaborative and strengths-based approach to counseling and provide a warm, empathetic and compassionate environment (and maybe a little humor). Reaching out for counseling is courageous and the first step in the healing process. Whether this is your first time or your 100th time in therapy, my objective is for you to achieve your goals. I look forward to being a part of your path to healing!

Thank you for considering me as your counselor. I have over 11 years experience and believe that my overall goal is to help you overcome your current struggle and in a way that you can apply everything we do towards future issues. I have taken the time and effort to learn and become competent in many different techniques as I believe everyone is different and as such benefits from different ways of doing things. I also take the time to understand you and what you are needing so that I can build around what is already working for you and the strengths you have to give us the best options to move forward. In addition to being a counselor, I have a diverse background, work well with most people and I am thankful for the opportunity to help others.

Her career at the WPB VA Medical Center offered her the opportunity to work with Veterans in the following capacities over that 10 year period; as a Mental Health Therapist, Program Manager of Post Deployment Clinic and the Care Giver Support Program, Supervisor of Homeless Programs and Supervisor over programs serving Veterans with serious mental health conditions. In addition to working at the WPB VA Medical Center, she worked in private practice in Jupiter, FL.

She has published multiple articles on relationships, depression, improving well-being, thriving during and after a serious health issue and reducing acute stress response. She has a YouTube Channel, “Therapy with Karen Collins” where she posts peaceful places, guided meditations, provoking ideas to consider and a segment on managing acute stress response and improving overall well-being to teach how to prevent over-responding to stressors. She has provided therapy virtually for over 11 years (long before it was trending as a popular method) and she is a MDLIVE provider joining that company in the beginning of their virtual platform launch. The past few years have proven that virtual therapy is an effective method of providing therapy removing additional barriers such as drive time, inconvenience, lack of child care, etc. to accessing needed services.

As a Reality Therapist, who is also a certified DBT practitioner, I believe we are all responsible for the choices we make. I have worked with people of all ages suffering from alcohol and drug-related addictions, borderline personality disorder, PTSD and other trauma-related disorders, sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, ADHD, and interpersonal problems. My core values are integrity, truthfulness, responsibility, compassion, and accountability and I operate from a place of moral principle. My purpose is to speak life into others and teach them how to do the same, starting within themselves. When we learn to connect our mind, body, and spirit we can accept things for what they are, people for who they are, and still find harmony within. To me, life is like a roller coaster, and sometimes the only way to enjoy it is to throw your hands up and scream until you find the laughter within. We all suffer. We all have a story to tell. I’m here to listen to yours and help you find the peace that surpasses all understanding because we were never designed to go through life alone. Join me if you want to learn how to take back control of your life and become comfortably uncomfortable. You are unique. You are beloved. You are enough. It's time to be who you were designed and created to be!

Hello, I’m Dr. Dionne Smith, PhD, LICDC-S. I am the owner of ALIVE Therapy & Consulting; working 20 + years as a clinical psychologist and licensed independent Chemical Dependency Counselor-supervisor. I am: genuine, an “optimistic realist”, practical, creative and research and results focused.I have a wicked sense of humor and love to laugh. All of which I incorporate into my sessions with clients. Merriam Webster defines the word Alive as” having life…still in existence…still active in competition with a chance of victory…knowing or realizing the existence of something… marked by alertness, energy… marked by much life, animation, or activity”. This dictionary definition is a good enough description of the word. But does not describe the dynamic process that represents being ALIVE. I define ALIVE as "Authentic Living Inspired by Values and Experience" [TM]. It is a process of: • Accepting reality • Releasing the past • Cultivating resilience • Acting with intention • Nurturing passion, ability and skill. My role is to provide non-judgmental, honest, compassionate support and science-based and results-focused guidance on this journey of discovery and healing. Having benefitted from therapy myself, I understand the importance of finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with and trust. As a PSYPACT Authorized provider, I offer flexible, confidential evening and weekend appointments via teletherapy which is available within more than 30 states, including: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin (more pending!)

Is anxiety or depression keeping you from living the life you want? Are you struggling in your relationships? Would you like to communicate more effectively? Do you isolate or avoid situations because of low self-esteem or self-confidence? Is a past trauma haunting and limiting you? Is an addiction interfering with your well-being or relationships? You and I can work together to bring about change: anxiety and depression can be managed effectively. Trauma can be resolved. Addictions can be broken.

Hey y'all, I'm Jasany. Do you feel lost, as if others have some sort of cheat code to life that no one passed to you? Maybe you've always felt different than most, leaving you to question your identity and intuition. I've been there and even continue to do the work that allows me to feel grounded in my identity, and befriend my authentic self. At 31, all my quirky traits and unpopular opinions finally made sense, once I learned about and embraced my neurodivergent brain. There is no specific blueprint on who to be or how to live. We all have varying identities that make life exciting, challenging, and rewarding. However, some of us hold identities that are met with stigma, thus impacting our ability to live in our authenticity. I offer minority-affirming psychotherapy and is dedicated to holding nonjudgmental space for BIPOC folx, womxn, SOGIE individuals, and neurodivergent adults. My approach is holistic and trauma-responsive. We'll work together to explore, heal, and self-actualize. Whether you need support with managing neurodevelopmental conditions (autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, etc.), processing trauma, managing anxiety and depression, exploring sexuality and gender, or just need a safe space sort out your thoughts and emotions, I'm here to help.
