As a therapist specializing in systems theory and a person-centered approach, I want to introduce myself and share how I can support family members of individuals struggling with addiction and anxiety. My name is Lainie, and I have dedicated my practice to helping families navigate complex challenges while fostering understanding, healing, and resilience. In working with families impacted by addiction, I approach therapy from a systems perspective, which means I view the family as an interconnected unit where each member's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors influence and are influenced by others. Through this lens, I aim to help family members recognize and address unhealthy patterns of communication, roles, and dynamics that may be contributing to the addiction cycle. Additionally, I integrate person-centered principles into my practice, emphasizing empathy, unconditional positive regard, and genuine acceptance for each family member's unique experiences and perspectives. I believe that creating a nonjudgmental and supportive space is essential for promoting open dialogue, trust, and collaboration within the family system. For family members of individuals struggling with anxiety, I use systems theory to explore how anxiety impacts the family as a whole and how family dynamics may contribute to or alleviate anxiety symptoms. By helping family members understand the interconnected nature of their experiences, we can work together to identify strengths, coping strategies, and communication skills that promote a healthier and more resilient family system. Overall, my approach combines the systemic understanding of family dynamics with the person-centered focus on individual experiences and needs. I strive to empower family members to communicate effectively, set boundaries, support each other, and navigate challenges with compassion and resilience. Together, we can create a therapeutic journey that promotes healing, growth, and positive change within the family system.

The most courageous thing we can do is embrace our own stories. It is in the choice to embrace that we discover our strengths, weaknesses, and quirks that allow us to live our most authentic lives. We must be aware that the journey is not always pleasing. Some twists and turns will be scary, but even in those moments, there is discovery. My oh my, what an amazing and freeing experience that discovery can be. I enjoy helping individuals navigate their healing journey by providing a safe space filled with compassion, non-judgment, and authenticity. Now is the time to put yourself first and start learning how to be unapologetically you!

Hello! I admire your courage to begin the counseling process. I have over 13 years of experience as an independently licensed counselor.

I have also provided counseling through the eyes of a Christian for those who desire to incorporate God into our sessions. My end goal in counseling is to empower individuals to break any identified cycle of dysfunction for the next generation of their family. I have a calm and empathetic approach and set solid boundaries with my clients. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you! Michelle Kessler, LPCC

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.

Trauma is a catalyst that can either bind us in grief or propel us toward greatness. By accepting what cannot be changed and learning how to properly cope with what is, we can all live a life we envision. In my experience as a therapist, I have noticed the impact grief, loss and trauma can have on an individual's psyche. With that being said, I have also noticed- and have profound appreciation for- the innate resilience evidenced in the healing process. For the past 10 years, I’ve worked tirelessly in community mental health, school based and psychiatric sites where I provided individual, family, and group therapy. By analyzing past circumstances, teaching self- awareness, and offering an open space to just be, I help clients unshackle the pain that keeps them bound. I pull from various treatment modalities including Humanistic, Acceptance Commitment, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, Strengths-Based, and Solution-Focused Therapy. Let us embark on this healing journey together. Reclaim the person you were always intended to be! Signed, The Connected Counselor

Are you struggling with maintaining your sanity as a wife, mother and caretaker? Or are you just someone who needs clarity on what your needs really are? While sometimes it is difficult to understand your own needs, therapy is a way to maintain your self care, learn how to gain better understanding and communicate your needs and feelings, to help you address barriers to healthy relationships and accomplishing personal goals. As a therapist I have 14 years of experience in helping adults and adolescents identify their own needs and collaborate to help them recognize how to improve upon those barriers. My primary interest is in helping individuals gain insight into their self worth in order to better manage life and mental health barriers. In therapy with me clients learn how to adjust negative thinking, improve self care, adjust self esteem and adjust your ability to believe in yourself. Sure therapy can be scary and even stigmatized but with the right collaboration it can be a godsend. Let me help you on your journey, let me help you adjust your crown.
