I hope that you know how valuable the work is that you have done at Options this last year... And you were one of the best therapists that I have seen in the five and a half years that I have been there. What I saw was an empathetic connection between you and your clients that seemed to have a healing effect. In addition, I got good feedback from the clients themselves. You were also a valuable sounding board for therapeutic challenges individual clients were facing. I appreciate you. Gary Anderson, AOD Counselor, Options Recovery Service
Melanie has been my counselor for many years now and I continue to look forward to our sessions. She provides a great balance of listening and input while helping me work out my issues on my own. I would highly recommend her services - its been the best investment Ive made in myself.
Jeff is a gifted and natural born counselor and conflict mediator. He has helped me so much in gaining clarity around my own emotional process, allowing me to peel back the layers of my understanding to learn what my deepest needs are. In the time that hes been practicing, Ive watched him explode fully into this role, gain insight and clarity into his own life, and develop a strong desire to share it with the world. Know that your sessions with him will be rooted in that deep sense of passion and love for this practice. It starts with a series of exercises in self connection. The objective here is, In order to know how to resolve my own conflict, I need to understand the underlying needs of where they are coming from. This is where Jeff is truly gifted, in asking the right questions, employing deep listening and empathy to help you discover what those needs are. He doesn't push you in any one direction, but rather he is trained in employing tools to help you understand for yourself what you are truly needing underneath all the muck that might be clouding your judgement. For example, I had a difficult decision about which job to take when I was offered two. We sat and had a moment of self-connection, during which we identified what my feelings were. Then, looking at each feeling, we identified the underlying need that was there, talking through ideas such as, "I feel this way, what am I needing that I am or am not getting?" After that, we determined was truly important to me based on each of those needs. I learned that one job would offer me security and safety, and the other would offer me creativity and freedom. Based on where I was at that point in my life, my need for creativity was far stronger than my need for safety. I was able to arrive at a solution that left me feeling empowered, because I had come to my own determination of what I wanted and had solid reasons for justifying them. I picked the creative job, and to this day I am extremely grateful that I made that choice! I now use these tools whenever I face a conflict with others, and especially as a tool for internal conflict mediation. For me, this process has felt like turning on a light switch, and the sense of relief that has come with this has been invaluable. He has incredible intuition, endless patience and compassion for this practice. Hes worked not only with me about my own individual processes, but hes also worked with me in employing this practice as it relates to my boss, my peers, and my relationship. I cant recommend Jeff enough for sharing these incredibly valuable life skills.
Best experience I've had with a counselor. Highly recommended.
Matthew has been a really great counselor to work with. He brings empathy and excitement to our relationship counseling sessions, and provides much needed insight to moments when we get caught up in our historic relational patterns. Our sessions are a good mix of hard work and play. Matthew always has ideas and exercises we can do to work with the material that arises. He is communicative and professional.
Mica worked with me when I was unsure and not able to see my way out of a tough situation. During our sessions, she brought compassion and clarity to my situation. With her help, I was able to work through my difficulties. She is a think outside of the box counselor who brought it many different kinds of resources to help me create a new strategy to move forward and leave a lot of self doubt behind.
I worked with Kim for many years and I believe she is one of the finest counselors I know. You will receive the very best holistic counseling. Alma Dunstan-McDaniel, M.S., LMFT

Eager Worker - Whenever I enter the work field and prepare for the day, I am always in an upbeat mood to get whatever needs to be done. I noticed a lot of workplaces want fast pace, but even the worker's aren't even pacing themselves to a speed I would consider fast. So, I keep it upbeat and strive to get things done. Able to Be on Task - When on task, I fit the situation toward my work habits such as being neat, clean, organized, with flow of charisma, and punctual, and these are just some of the ethics I am portraying. You may not see other workers putting effort into promoting these kinds of ethics, but if want to see the skill I provide, analyzing other employees or employers will show you the difference I can make. Acceptance to Strive - The question that can hold you back when working is, "What drives you to work?" My answer is simple: the acceptance to strive. How can you work without a motivation to push you beyond limits? How can you become determined to stay committed to a job without being proud of what you've done? When i accept to strive, I accept to work. Communication's Negotiator - When I work, I have this helping habit. What I do is I ask them if I can help them. Some say no and some say yes, but what I want to establish with this is that when I communicate and negotiate, I do it all in a helping manner, so that anyone would come out happy. Currency Distributor - Distributing currency, I have the ability to process currency through objective. With this particular skill, what I do is I carefully place currency into whatever machine is used to distribute. Credit Saver - When it comes to credit, we all know how essential it can be, and saving these essentials causes some great production. Creditm when used potentiallym can result in a change toward success, which is something we should all want. Multitasking Initiator - Initiate on a task and multiple tasks is something I acquired through my years of academics, sports, and religious beliefs. I am a Buddhist, but I acknowledge all sorts of religions. Interactive Discusser - I love to have discussion, and I think this is one of my strong points when on the floor of the work field. Although discussions sometimes can lead off topic or get carried away, I will always love to discuss and at the same time interact. Counselor for Answers - Well, when times get rough and support is available to heal, I guide them through phases of healing. We have so many people not knowing answers to questions they have for the world. Well, as a counselor, you guide them to find the answer, just like counselors who have guided us before. Service of Profit - With this meaning, the service you provide will benefit both parties. Together, the efforts will begin to grow into a way of success, which will reach beyond.

I offer individual counseling and coaching for individuals suffering from acute or chronic pain. I work with interactive guided imagery, energetic healing, and body dialogue to help you find ease and relaxation and live a pain-free life.
