My name is Richard Spires. I believe in the therapeutic alliance. Counseling is a team effort and we get the best results when we work together. Part of my counseling style is that I take time getting to know you and try to truly understand your issues. I have been to counseling myself and had experiences where I felt the therapist was not trying to understand my problems. I told myself that when I become a counselor, I never want any of my patients to feel like I didn't care. So I take pride in getting to know you and understanding your problems. So whenever you're ready to talk, I'm ready to listen.

I am so excited to have you visit me here and for giving me the chance to introduce myself!  My name is Sarah Nickolson-Kemper and I'm a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT).  I am also  a certified middle school teacher. After spending almost 10 years in the classroom, I recognized I wanted help in a different way. I love helping people realize the strengths they have within themselves and understand that we are all part of many systems (family, work, community, culture, etc) and as such, there are many contributing factors to our daily experiences in life.   I believe if it isn't broken, don't fix it. Encorporating various techniques such as mindfulness, journaling, art, and role play provide you the opportunity to find the right fit to help you set measurable and attainable goals to realize the change you want.

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.

It's also important to note that therapy's timeline varies for each individual; some people might experience significant changes relatively quickly, while others might require longer-term support. The therapeutic journey is a personal one, and I work with my clients to create a tailored approach that suits their needs and goals.

Although it is not easy to talk about your personal challenges to a complete stranger, I can tell you that I have the necessary tools, education, and non-judgemental space to help you!

You may also be struggling to find a balance between your multiple life roles, but there’s hope in knowing that you can feel at peace, confident, and empowered. You can work on not letting your worry wear you out and make you feel tired. You can sleep better at night, stop ruminating on what you're going to do tomorrow or what you had to do yesterday, and you can begin to feel calm inside. Put your mental health first and begin this journey to your healing and improvement! I help millennial mothers prevent burnout and reduce stress and anxiety. We will identify negative and intrusive thoughts that make an impact on how you behave and feel. We will rediscover your confident and empowered self while finding balance in your life. As a mother, you deserve to feel validated. I want to hear your story and be able to guide you toward the confidence and balance you’ve been searching for!
