Counselors at A Safe Place to Heal

Our work together will be empowering! Counseling will help you to find more peace in your day-to-day life by giving you the confidence to stand up strong against whatever or whomever is pulling you down! Maybe it is a relationship, or it is the way you talk to yourself? Perhaps it is old tapes  that persistently play in your head and you need to find your voice that tells them to stop! You deserve to be happy and peaceful and fulfilled. My counseling approach focuses on what is working in your life: identifying your strengths and finding solutions. Sometimes, it is also about identifying what’s not working and gaining the courage to let those things go. Often, during the first counseling session, relief is experienced from the effects of the problem that brings you into counseling. Safety in our counseling relationship is imperative! I want you to feel as comfortable as possible while dealing with potentially uncomfortable feelings. I will be real with you and we will figure this out together. I am there to walk with you in this journey. Read more about Jeana

Licensed Professional Counselor 
“Therapy” is an active word. I am here to strive with you to help you move forward. Do you want to explore the roadblocks in your life that are keeping you from achieving your true potential? Do you want to begin to make better choices? Do you need healing from a loss or difficult situation? Do you have a good life that you simply want to make better? Are you ready to make a change? Therapy isn’t a band-aid; it is the positive, engaged movement of two people – the counselor and the client – toward specific goals. I am committed to doing this work together, to build trust and security as we help you live your greater happiness. I will listen objectively, and give you the support and guidance you seek.

Together, we can do this! You can find happiness, peace and a life free from pain. Maybe the pain you are experiencing is from a relationship? Maybe it is from your past? It might even be coming from the way you talk to yourself. Are you forgiving, kind, compassionate, accepting and nurturing? I bet you are. Now, are you all of those things towards yourself and not just those around you? If you aren’t, that can cause you to never feel satisfied, content, good enough or accomplished.  If you are in a relationship with poor communication, constant bickering, frustrations and stress, counseling can help. Let me show you how to do it! Counseling is a helping relationship where your well being is my top priority. In an atmosphere of privacy and trust, you can reveal yourself and grow through painful experiences. What’s different is you are not alone in getting to the other side of difficult issues so you can tap into strengths you already have, can become free to engage your life now in more enhanced, positive ways. Read more about Katherine

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern
I believe that you can empower yourself more than you ever realized! Sometimes, we come from a home life that didn’t model healthy relationships. Other times, our current home life is what is unhealthy. It can make you uncomfortable to know you are stuck in a rut and you can only do this for so long before something has to give. You know change needs to happen, but you don’t know where to start! Sound familiar? It is my belief that each of us has the innate ability and desire to lead a fulfilling life and have positive, conflict-free, drama-free relationships. Counseling can help you to find your way towards a more peaceful, fulfilling life. We will work on it together and you will find comfort in our partnership. I am not there to judge you; I am there to guide you. My intention is to create a collaborative partnership throughout your counseling sessions that enables you to move away from self-blame and judgment and supports you in finding solutions that are consistent with your values and beliefs. I want to help you feel better and enjoy your life! Read more about Belinda
