Meet Shaina

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor


I believe counseling is an opportunity to connect with someone in a safe environment, to express what is happening in your life without fear of judgment. People face a variety of life issues that become burdensome to deal with on their own. This is where I come in.

I help clients who are dealing with Anxiety, Depression, Pre-Marital concerns, Marriage & Family, Self-Esteem, Coping-Skills, Life-Coaching, Divorce, Grief, Job and School Stressors. People encounter hardships in life and relationships. I find it a privilege to be able to walk alongside those who are seeking assistance in their life.

Getting help is often a healthy way to deal with the stressors and hardships of everyday life and to empower oneself to cope better and learn from life’s challenges. I would be honored to join you on your journey and offer my compassion, kindness and expertise.

Meet Morgan

Licensed Professional Counselor


I believe in meeting each client where they’re at currently and taking time to understand each person’s unique story. You may come to a spot where you feel stuck in your story and unable to move forward. You find yourself feeling overwhelmed, burdened, and have difficulty connecting with others.

I aim to create a safe and non-judgmental space for client's to participate in healing conversations. That space starts with a therapeutic relationship built on trust and acceptance, no matter who you are and what you are going through. I believe counseling is a brave step toward overall wellness, and my passion is to work alongside my clients as they move past the places they once felt stuck in.

I have experience working with young adults from a wide variety of backgrounds. I have experience with concerns of academics, adjustment, anxiety, career concerns, depression, relationships, self-esteem, and trauma. I believe in using an integrative approach to meet the unique needs of each individual client. I use a variety of theories tailored to each individual's personality and set of concerns - including cognitive behavioral and mindfulness.

Life is hard and unpredictable. Therapy is a safe, supportive space where you will be seen and heard as you explore life’s challenges. Whether you know exactly what obstacles you are facing, or if you are unsure why you’re feeling the way that you do, therapy can be a great avenue to gain better insight and learn new techniques that can help lead to a more balanced and better quality of life.

I work with adults looking to make positive and meaningful changes in their lives. I provide a nurturing, non-judgmental environment to help make the experience of therapy relaxed and genuine. My approach is holistic, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive, honoring differences in race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and religion/spirituality. Together, we’ll work to develop individualized tools to better cope and heal.

My specialties include stress, anxiety, trauma, substance use and other addictions, adjustment related issues, and depression.

Meet Heidi

Counselor Trainee

I believe counseling is a time to make a client feel validated and helping them learn how they can be the best version of themselves. We all have a story to share and I would love to be the one to hear them. In a time of uncertainties, we all need someone we can express ourselves to and having a safe environment to do so is important.

I am a Counselor Trainee through Ashland Theological Seminary. I have worked with a wide range of clients, such as Depression, Trauma, Anxiety, and Life Stressors. My approach is from a Cognitive Behavioral Approach but I like to incorporate what I know and what the client needs the most in my sessions. I strive to have clients enter an environment that is accepting, caring, helpful, and non-judgemental.

Asking for help can be hard and so can being vulnerable. I would love to be able to sit along side this new journey with you.
