Counseling for Individuals

Everyone can benefit from therapy. We strive to provide a safe, judgement-free environment where you can be fully transparent while working towards healing. We firmly believe in the power of collaboration and teaming up with a counselor you trust to work through what stands in your way. Check out our counselors below and find the approach that most resonates with you.

Joanna Dixon, LMFT

The “joining” process in therapy is imperative to the provider/client relationship. Joanna invests a lot of her initial energy in getting to know you on a personal level.

She strives to provide a space where you can sit back, carefully unpack the stressors you are facing, and gain some objectivity on things that you just cannot see because it is too close to you.

Keiara Marsh, MS

Pre-Licensed

Depression, Anxiety, Stress management, Addiction, Grief, family structure, and many other problem areas that are regularly addressed and treated in therapy with Keiara.  Her ability to connect, explore, and challenge rigid thoughts and patterns are what allow for the success in her clients with making changes and meeting goals they set for themselves.

Zak Shrock, TEMP-LPC

Zak has the gift of being practical and relatable, in life and in the counseling office. He takes immense effort to keep from over complicating the therapeutic process so that your journey to healing finds you right where you are.  His ability to connect, see the heart of the issue and challenge you to see unhealth you may have grown blind to is unmatched.

Loren Jahner, MMFT

Pre-Licensed

Loren believes that in order to solve the problems that life can throw at us, we need to look at it from all possible angles to help find the best solution. Also, that YOU, as the client, already have those tools needed to solve the issue, and her job is to help you discover the best ways to access them.

Nicole Heckel, MMFT

Pre-Licensed

When life feels unmanageable it can be really overwhelming and stressful. I’m here to provide a safe and compassionate space that allows you to process what challenges you are facing. I’m here to help with grief work, anxiety, codependency, boundary setting, identifying healthy coping skills, and self esteem struggles.

Mandy Middleton, MMFT

Pre-Licensed

"I believe that working with the various parts and beliefs that we have about ourselves and the world around us is very important in living our best life."

 

With a natural compassion and empathy, Mandy's approach offers practical techniques to challenge those false, unhelpful beliefs we all have and regain, maybe for the first time, an accurate sense of SELF.

Becky Kimbrough, MMFT

Pre-Licensed

Becky exudes an ease and comfort in the therapy office that allows you to feel seen and heard in a safe space created just for you. She has a gentle way of nudging her clients towards areas they feel stuck, and an ability to challenge them to dig deeper in their work to step into the healthier life they desire.

 

If you are ready for a change, her grace to come alongside you is genuine and poised so that you can release and continue your journey with confidence and courage.

Kristen Webster, MMFT

To speak, and be heard.

To find your voice and advocate for yourself while still having compassion for those around you.

These are some things that are a natural byproduct of your time in working with Kristen. 

 

Kristen is a skilled listener and enjoys the process of working with others to find creative solutions to life’s difficult problems. She is passionate about working with her clients through challenging life adjustments, anxiety, depression, and codependency.
