Hi there! I'm Rev. Mae Barree Do you experience feelings of being overwhelmed, being pulled in different directions, and unable to fit it all in? How about your relationships, work, school, and your health? Is it hard to provide much needed love for yourself? I help individuals with similar concerns manage anxiety and practice self-care to avoid burnout. Together, we can discover what is not working and get you back to balance. We'll use a whole self-approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit. I also integrate mindfulness and will teach you coping skills to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. If you would like for me to integrate biblically based wisdom, and or prayer, just ask! Whether you’re dealing with anger issues, grief and loss, issues or cycles of anxiety and depression. As a Couple, you may be requesting premarital counseling. What a wonderful and exciting time. We will cover what to expect in marriage and how to communicate effectively which is the most important ingredient in the marital relationship. You may have experienced the loss of a loved one or someone not as close to you. It could be there have been quite a few transitions in your life that have caused you to experience grief and loss. Together we will learn how the stages of grief can impact you and how to cope after loss. I'm here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back.

Hello, I am Shari. Are you looking for someone you can feel safe to address your needs and not feel judged? Are you looking for someone authentic and supportive? Are you having difficulty finding someone who will be honest and direct? I work well with anyone who is motivated to start addressing their concerns right away. I believe finding the right therapist can be challenging, but it should not be a barrier to getting help. Finding a therapist should feel comfortable and natural. I am told I have a way of helping people feel as if they have known me before. I like to get an understanding of the source of your problem. Then together we explore how the source influences your thinking. People live life through their experiences which do not always serve us very well in today's time. I also believe in working from a holistic approach. Did you know our daily routines can prolong your recovery or cause mental instability? I have experienced being in a therapeutic relationship and believe in normalizing the need to get help in this way.

The Person-Centered Therapist gently guides clients to break self-imposed barriers that block self-determination and growth.

Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile. My name is Libby, and I'm a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over a decade of experience working with adolescents and adults representing some of the most vulnerable populations. Preference for individual/adults. As a Black female therapist, and on my mental wellness journey, I recognize the huge stigma connected to addressing mental health treatment in Black and Brown communities. Several barriers contribute to the gap in mental health care, including a lack of cultural representation among providers, an overwhelming sense of fear of sharing personal history with a stranger and being stigmatized by family or friends. The biggest obstacle is silence! Unfortunately, many are suffering alone, giving way to unhealthy generational patterns, like anxiety, depression, and PTSD (to name a few). My goal is to interrupt these negative patterns by creating space for healing and rewriting your story.

It can be a journey filled with joy and struggle. Have you reached a point where it seems there is more struggle than joy or feel stuck in the muck that seems to only get deeper or harder to transgress?

Whether you are dealing with Depression, Life changes, Anxiety, Relationships, Trauma, or a new medical or mental health diagnosis, therapy can be a useful mechanism for support, discernment, and information. I would like to provide you with a safe and welcoming environment and space to relieve yourself of these stressors through working on alternatives to current reactions to triggers or stressors in the way of continuing your journey, your way and at your own pace.
