Welcome to the House of Transformation Therapy Services LLC! You may ask why House of Transformation? After years of working in the IT world I transitioned into the addictions and mental health field following a calling from my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in my middle age. My acceptance of Jesus Christ, began my internal transformation and continuation of being transformed day by day leading to receiving a calling and a purpose to help heal those suffering. This transformation began my personal journey of healing from domestic violence; different types of abuse, drug abuse and much more. I learned in this journey that the Lord uses our suffering for eternal gain. You may find yourself at a similar crossroad suffering with a chemical addiction; domestic violence or abuse; various types of trauma/PTSD; or somewhere on the anxiety, depressive, obsessive compulsive, ADHD, or personality disorder spectrum; interpersonal relationship issues; or challenges with transitioning into adulthood from 18-21’ish ranging from financial, job/career, relationships, moving out to your own place, or learning more of who you are. Maybe you’re a parent struggling with how to raise a child, unsure if parenting skills or other areas are effective or experiencing a child with behavioral/emotional problems. You’ve come to the right place! It all starts within us, the desire to be transformed within… to be happier, more whole, more fulfilled so you experience less suffering and thrive more instead of just surviving day by day. The key to healing is change within and I will be with you to guide, help, encourage and support you on this journey at your personal pace using over 13 years of clinical experience. Together, we set goals in our conversations and use these to develop an action plan to aid in healing, growing and thriving. Self-pay prices: -Intake and Established sessions @ $70 for 60 min session -Scheduled follow-up session @ $60 for 60 min session

Hi, I'm Brandi and I'm excited to help individuals and couples improve communication and understanding in their relationships. Our potential to be well, cope with stress, be ourselves, and connect with others are continually linked and impacted by our relationships. Relationships are so important that they require consistent attention and effort for success. As a practical person and therapist, I offer strength-based brief therapy to give your relationships that attention to create change and increase that potential to be well. I've supported individuals, couples, and families from various walks of life and backgrounds for over 12 years from working with family crises as case management to professional counseling. Are you wanting a better relationship with yourself or to manage stress better? Are you tired of going in circles and ready to have more understanding in your relationships? Then let's get to work!

Hi! In my work over the years, I have had the pleasure to see my clients succeed at life! I am compassionate, non-judgmental, and we will meet wherever you are and take you wherever you want to go. I look forward to working with you! Specializations Addiction and/or Substance Use Concerns, Anger Management, Anxiety, Couples Counseling, Depression, Family Therapy, Grief, Health Psychology, Parenting Issues, Relationship Issues, Sleep Health, Women's Health. In our sessions, you can see into my home, and it is as if you are right there with me. No filters, no staring at a wall behind me. You will be inside of my home office as if it were in person. At our sessions I take notes that I give to you at the end of our sessions, so you have have something tangible to take with you, as well as links to resources such as podcasts, books, take home exercises (never mandatory though!) to help you progress in between sessions to make our time together more valuable. I used to be in direct service many years ago and then moved into training EAP providers and offering trainings for Mental Health providers to maintain their licenses, but during the, "Great Hiatus," I saw that people needed help. So I came back to be in the trenches. You are in good hands! I am also a student of positive psychology, but I have the ability to empathize deeply and really be right there with you. Almost all of my clients have experienced breakthroughs and by the end of our time together are enjoying their lives again and feeling competent to problem solve and develop coping tools, and resiliency.

My treatment process begins with a comprehensive diagnostic assessment, typically lasting one to two hours. During this assessment, I carefully evaluate your presenting concerns and symptoms to provide accurate diagnoses and formulate personalized treatment recommendations. If I determine that I am the best fit for your needs, I will suggest starting with outpatient sessions on a weekly basis, gradually transitioning to biweekly sessions as progress is made.

For more than a decade I have been counseling clients with a variety of mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual health struggles from a wide spectrum of personalities and life experiences. Each counseling experience brings challenges and victories. I consider it an honor and privilege to come alongside individuals or couples in need- to help in the healing process through processing trauma, identifying and replacing harmful and self-sabotaging patterns of behavior with restorative ones, providing mediation and advocacy, and offering compassion and accountability. I grew up in Ohio, but now live on a 17 acre homestead in the Ozarks with my wife of 17 years and our 6 children. My personal interests range from video games to lumberjacking. I have enjoyed the time and opportunity to work remotely and start a new chapter in my life with my family figuring out the homesteading chaos.

Greetings! I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) and have worked with offenders, anger management clients, couples, teens and adults struggling with ADHD, anxiety and depression. Through a strengths based approach, my clients learn more about themselves thus improving self-confidence, communication, mood and overall outlook on life. I love serving my teen and couples clients via the Gallup strengths test. This test helps individuals understand where their energy is highest and what they value most. It's not about "strengths", but values. I believe one of the best things we can do for ourselves is take the time to truly understand ourselves as this helps us learn to communicate effectively, be productive, overcome procrastination and more. This is one tool of many I enjoy using to help my clients.

I have a Master's of Counseling and am licensed by the State of Ohio as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I started out working with youth in intensive day treatment and then spent several years working with both youth and adults on a wide variety of issues. When I work with a child, I like to include the parents as much as possible to equip them to create the right environment at home for their child's mental health needs. When I work with adults, I use a strengths- based approach to develop solutions that will work best for each individual.

Steven Johnston CPC LPCC-S has been a clinical counselor for over twenty years, with special training in the areas of Pastoral Counseling , having additonal experience in treating victims of Domestic Violence ; Child Sexual Abuse; Trauma, workplace issues and Marital counseling. A graduate from Ashland Theological Seminary in 1988. Because Mr. Johnston did not want to exclude religious commitment issues from the therapeutic setting, he chose to pursue his Counseling degree from Ashland Seminary after graduating with ministerial degree from the Foursquare Church of the Gospel’s, Life Bible College East. He has continued to extend his Clinical Pastoral Studies through membership and training in the American Association of Christian Counselors. To avoid excluding an aspect of life that has shown to be of central importance to nearly two-thirds of the US population, Mr. Johnston has sought to integrate spiritual issues from a Biblical point of view in a way compatible with Biblical doctrine and Pastoral Counseling. This integration as it applies to marital, family and individual issues has been found to promote inner healing as it supports the client’s own religious coping skills.

As a professional mental health counselor specializing in treating anxiety and depression, I provide a comprehensive approach to help prospective clients manage their mental health challenges. My process typically begins with an initial consultation or assessment session, where I create a safe and supportive environment for clients to share their concerns and goals. I employ evidence-based treatments, particularly drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). In my sessions, I guide clients through a process of accepting their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting against them. I help them identify their values and commit to actions that align with those values, even in the presence of difficult emotions or thoughts. During sessions, I may utilize various techniques such as mindfulness exercises, experiential exercises, and cognitive restructuring to help clients develop psychological flexibility. This involves teaching them skills to defuse from unhelpful thoughts, increase awareness of the present moment, and take committed action towards meaningful life goals. Additionally, I collaborate with clients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and circumstances. I may incorporate psychoeducation about anxiety and depression, as well as teach coping strategies and relaxation techniques to empower clients in managing their symptoms outside of therapy sessions. My approach is characterized by empathy, non-judgment, and respect for the individuality of each client. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance based on trust and collaboration, where clients feel understood and supported in their journey towards improved mental well-being.
