Hi there, I'm Melissa. Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or unhappy most days? Do you simply want someone to listen, understand, and help? I'm in recovery for alcohol use disorder and a combat veteran. I've had to learn coping skills or lose everything. I understand anxiety and depression. I specialize in helping individuals develop coping skills that can be used in real-time to alleviate negative moods and improve daily functioning. I can help you better understand the connections between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors: "What makes you tick?" Together, we can identify negative thinking and reshape it in a way that changes how you feel. I can help you challenge negative thoughts and identify more helpful/realistic thoughts. This will help you better enjoy your life because you will view it more positively. We'll create long-term change with tools such as quick and easy mental exercises. I also integrate journaling, mindfulness exercises, and stress-reduction techniques to support positive outcomes. Together, we can identify healthy coping skills that actually work. You deserve a life that brings you contentment and joy. Let's work together on this journey of healing.

I am an open and effective communicator and will tailor your therapy experience to your comfort level. For some clients, they prefer more of a direct approach, others need more of a gentle approach. I am able to diversify my approach as necessary so therapy doesn't feel as scary or daunting. It is an honor to walk alongside clients during their struggles in order to provide relationship and connection that they may not have elsewhere in their lives.

Welcome to Grow Therapy! I am a social worker at heart. Mental health encompasses the way we live, laugh and love. You will have the opportunity to explore your sense of self, others, and the world. You can learn how to embrace the moment and break the cycle that is getting in the way of your full potential. Therapy can help you deal with ambivalence, overwhelming emotions, feeling stuck and other stressful situations. Common things addressed during sessions include overthinking, mood challenges, dealing with stress, motivation, self-esteem and the change process. Pain, disappointments, and hardships are inevitable. Every day offers you a chance to renew your mind. We will aim to strengthen protective factors as you make positive changes to feel and be better. I believe in treating everyone with respect, dignity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Radical acceptance includes walking in wisdom and living in truth! I am looking forward to speaking with you!

Hi! I'm Candace. Do you ever feel like an island, where nobody truly understands you? When you attempt to express your needs, it often leaves you questioning your sanity and making you feel isolated. As you scroll through social media, it seems like everyone else has it all figured out. Despite your best efforts, you feel trapped and stagnant. Together we can navigate through it. You are not alone. As a mother of 3, I understand how difficult it can be to navigate life as a parent, maintain a work/life balance, and curate healthy relationships. It can be exhausting! Through my training and experience, I specialize in supporting other women with their emotional struggles and empowering them to find solutions within themselves.

I have approximately 30 years of experience in virtually all clinical settings. I began my career working in a juvenile penitentiary (referred to as a 'youth development center) and after almost 6 years, left that setting and moved on to new opportunities. Along the way, I worked with group homes, foster homes, substance abuse treatment programs, and even provided treatment in a sexual offender treatment program. In 2004 I went solely into private practice and currently operate two offices. I also provided on-site services to businesses that suffer a death or other disruptive event; I have provided over 170 of these services in four states during the last several years. While you don't need any faith to see me, I also offer Christian Counseling. Finally, I am a US Army veteran and understand the challenges and needs of veterans. I operate under a practical approach that seeks to build on a person's strengths to achieve realistic, measurable goals. I utilize primarily cognitive behavioral therapy and reality therapy to help my clients achieve their goals and to live life more fully.

I have over 20 years of experience in the counseling area. We all experience anxiety, depression, grief, and loneliness at times. And we all struggle with memories from childhood that greatly influence our thinking. These things make up many of the stories we use to control how we feel about the quality of our lives. Changing those stories can help you build the life you desire. Realizing that there is no set way to live a life, I provide a safe and confidential environment where each client can discover a way forward that works best for them. Working together, I'll help you develop coping skills and positive behavior change. We will focus on your goals and ways to achieve them. I focus on couples, family, and adolescent counseling.

Life can be difficult to navigate and there's no user manual. Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Do you have a child or teenager who is often mislabeled as a "bad kid"? Do you feel your plate is more than full? Are you struggling to manage it all at once? Life can feel overwhelming. You keep burying these feelings and telling yourself "I'm fine". You deserve time to slow down and focus on yourself.

Oftentimes, it is helpful to be reminded that emotional peace and happiness are possible. I strive to create a safe and accepting environment where individuals can fully explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a meaningful way. The purpose of therapy is to embark on a path that will help you find balance within yourself and with the interpersonal relationships that you value. Although therapy can be challenging, it can also yield rewards for those who are willing to be consistent, vulnerable, and engaged. If you are open to the therapeutic process, I look forward to partnering with you on this journey. In our work together, we will find ways for you to become your most authentic self and in the process rediscover peace of mind, self-truth, and happiness.
