"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!

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!)

Hi! My name is Billy. Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress, anger...or possibly all five? These issues are not uncommon and can be debilitating, especially when guilt or shame are added to the mix. But you can kick them all to the curb. All it takes is a willingness to change your perspectives. I've worked with thousands of clients (adults and children) who struggle with self-defeating beliefs that zap the joy out of life. And I've found that Hope and Purpose, along with healthy doses of Motivation and Creativity, crush inner demons. How do you find Hope and Purpose? It's not as complicated as you might think. We are made to help each other. We are made to communicate. We are made to have a positive impact. Sometimes, though, life attacks from all directions and leaves us feeling defeated. That's when we need help. I'm here to listen. I'm here to learn about your struggles and find ways to help you view them differently. And, who knows? I may even share some of my Blackstone Griddle secrets along the way. God Bless!

Hello! So happy to see you. I am Kenya Liddell. Having had experienced many losses in my life, I often wonder what to do next or how to move forward. Sometimes life happens so quickly that it seems like there is not enough time to catch a breath. It's a scary feeling to have to figure out the hustle and bustle of life while still hurting inside. Fearful of being misunderstood, judged or like "it" may not work may be the negative thoughts that have developed during such a devastating loss. Think about getting back to doing the things that you once loved. Think about learning to live the best life that you imagined you could. Think about feeling better about yourself. Together you and I can work to get a better understanding of your loss and create a positive path to growth and healing. You are not alone. Your healing journey is a just call or click away. You can do it. I look forward to working with you.

I specialize in helping adults of any age with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma and alcohol/drug use, including when issues of mental health and substance use occur at the same time. I understand there are many different paths in how a person can overcome and manage their struggles in mental health and substance use. My therapeutic approach to help each client find their best path by providing sessions that are client centered, strengths based, non-judgmental, empathetic and accepting of everyone. Together we’ll generate healthy and empowering ways to problem solve, improve communication, manage strong emotions, build/repair relationships and other support systems, and find ways to maintain recovery. I also have 10 years of experience in working with clients who are justice involved via court, parole and probation systems.

Hi, I'm Richelle. I'm a licensed professional clinical counselor with over eight years of experience helping individuals improve their mental health and quality of life. I have worked in a variety of settings, including online therapy. Right now, life may feel hard. You’ve faced many challenges that seemed to have come out of nowhere, and you're constantly doing your best to navigate through them. You struggle to set healthy boundaries and often feel overwhelmed. Asking for help isn't always easy. You may say to yourself, “What will people think? I can figure it out on my own.” It’s tough because you usually go at it alone, carrying the load and bearing the burden. However, deep down inside, you know that something isn't quite right and that you could use some support. Does this sound familiar? As someone who has been there before, I understand how tough it can be to take that first step to reach out. While you may feel like you have to handle everything yourself, these are the times when reaching out for help can give you some direction and help you find your path forward. The truth is, it takes strength and courage to say, “I need help.” And when you do, you'll find that you have the inner strengths and abilities to make meaningful change in your life. Together, we can work to discover those strengths and create a path forward that's tailored to your unique needs and goals.
