Linda Meier Abdelsayed, MS, LMFT
I am honored by every client who chooses to share their lives with me. Everyone is unique and comes to therapy with their own experiences and responses to life stresses. Deciding to work with a therapist doesn’t mean you are broken or handling things poorly, instead I believe that it simply means that you are choosing to take control of your response to difficulties in your life. Life does not come with a manual and most everyone can benefit from a little guidance in navigating through difficult or disappointing times. Therapy is an active process and I am an engaged participant during our time together. We focus on the issues that you bring to create movement and change towards a positive outcome.

Carolyn Cole, MA, LCPC, LMFT, NCC
Are you struggling in your relationships? My passion is helping couples and individuals who are having difficulty in their relationships. My clients are single, married, or dating. I also work with engaged couples who are seeking pre-marital counseling or trying to iron out the kinks in the relationship before getting married. In addition to my work with couples, I enjoy working with singles who have been impacted by social or relationship problems, such as healing from a break-up or those who ask themselves why they end up with the same “type” of partner time and time again, as some examples. The skills that I teach the couples I work with are research based and have proven outcomes. More Information about Carolyn…

Donna Livesey, MSW, LCSW
Regardless of the reason for seeking therapy, I view you someone who is not satisfied with how they are reacting to the often complex and contradictory world we live in. I strive to understand your issues in the context of your unique experience rather than a pathological perspective of you having something wrong or being broken. As odd as it sounds, I want you to look forward to our sessions – as we are working on creating the change you want in your life. Together, we work through the issues that are troubling you – identifying the the obstacles and figuring out how you want to address them. Although sometimes this means talking about difficult subjects, it is my responsibility to help you feel comfortable and safe to do so. More Information about Donna…

Erin Johnston, MSW, LCSW
Our sessions should be a positive interaction, even if we are discussing difficult issues. It is my job to make you comfortable and safe so that we can resolve the issues that have brought you to therapy. My style as a clinician is relaxed and I use a collaborative model of therapy, where sessions tend to have a more of a feeling relaxing in my living room versus a traditional doctor/patient relationship. I seek to understand your issues in the context of your unique experience rather than viewing you as having something wrong or being broken. I have a particular interest in working with those in creative fields and therapists seeking therapy or those experiencing problems with Anxiety, Asperger’s or Borderline Personality Disorder.
