Dr. L. Phillips
I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has worked with children and family services for the majority of my career. As such, I have worked with clients across the life span, including couples work, substance use and recovery, spiritual dilemmas, parent training, and most recently, elder therapy. I am trained in behavior analysis, and various research- based procedures like CBT, and believe in establishing a strong rapport with clients. I have a long history of treating childhood and adult trauma, and will begin offering EMDR in February of 2021. I look forward to working with clients who are committed to progress, growth, and change, one small step at a time. Psychotherapy is one of the highest forms of self-care, and it is an honor to accompany clients in this journey.

Often in life we can be our own “worst enemy,” when what we really need is to learn how to become our own best friend. Perhaps you’d like to increase your self- awareness, have healthier relationships, heal from trauma, process losses, make some tough decisions or reduce painful symptoms of anxiety and depression.
I’m an experienced, licensed clinical psychologist and have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years. In that time, I have helped people with problems from many angles and virtually every “walk of life,” including children, teens, couples, families, and adults of all ages, to live more fulfilling lives.
Psychotherapy provides a safe space to work through issues we struggle with, develop new skills, strengthen relationships, and grow. You deserve all these things and I’d be honored to work with you. I help you to accomplish your goals through a combination of an empathic, non-judgmental stance and the use of evidence-based therapy techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy.
The time to take care of ourselves is right now. If it sounds as if we may be a fit, I welcome the opportunity for you to contact me.
Sharon Brown, LPC
We all become overwhelmed at times with life events that seem unmanageable. As your therapist, my goal in the therapeutic process is to provide an inviting, safe, and judgement -free atmosphere to partner with you in working through these times. I work in a way that promotes clarity of thought and forward movement, including the science-backed use of visualization and imagery to help you harness the power of mindful awareness.
My areas of expertise are OCD tendencies, panic and anxiety, depressive episodes, low self-
esteem, marital/couples’ conflict, grief/loss counseling, issues arising as an adult child of an alcoholic
(ACOA) and chronic pain management. I also specialize in working with adults to assist in the management of adult attention deficit (ADD) and its’ impact on work and family.
Wherever you are in your life’s journey, good mental health is an important piece of navigating life’s challenges and I would be honored to partner with you in that journey! Please call to talk about how it is that I can help!
Jody Johnson, LPC, ATR
Life can be difficult and seem unmanageable at times. Taking the step to begin therapy is an important and personal decision. I believe that healing is a collaborative journey that requires honest caring without judgment. I cooperatively assist my clients in what they want during treatment.
I am a licensed professional counselor and board -certified art therapist. Rather than adopting one way of working for all people and all problems, I am eclectic in my orientation and offer an integrative approach to client-centered therapy using family systems work, cognitive behavioral techniques, dialectical behavioral therapy, and art therapy. I temper the process with creativity, imagination and humor, along with practical solutions and concrete goals.
I specialize in supporting adults, adolescents, children and families who are experiencing challenges with depression, anxiety, trauma and loss, family conflict, and personal growth.
If you’re ready to take the next step or wonder how I can help, please contact me. I look forward to starting your healing journey today!

Have your daily struggles piled up so high that you no longer recognize your own life? These struggles often strain your most important relationships and leave you feeling trapped and unfulfilled.
I’m an experienced licensed counselor who helps adults, couples and adolescents to live a more fulfilling life. Together, we’ll work to effectively sort through the tensions or problems that bring you to therapy by developing a concrete plan of action to help you reach your goals.
My approach to counseling is primarily based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is an active, collaborative form of counseling that helps you to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As your therapist, I will listen deeply while also gently challenging you to actively apply the strategies learned in therapy in your life and your relationships.
My areas of specialization include relationship issues, anxiety/depression, trauma, career-related issues, family conflict, and personal development and growth.
If you are ready to make some changes but aren’t sure how, take the first step now by contacting me to see how it is that I can help. I look forward to working with you soon!
Dianna Allen, MA ,LPC
Our days have gotten busier, noisier, and more challenging, and perhaps you have become burdened by stress or unhappiness about the current state of the globe, or the current state of your personal days. Our brains become inundated by too many choices in each day, so that by the time our own wellbeing is on the table, our energy or willpower is just zapped.
If you want to make some changes in your life, or you’re struggling to reach goals, having a mental health professional in your corner can give you the edge you need to get back on track.
Reaching out for help is the first – and often most challenging – step. Using strength-based, relational counseling skills, I will support you in developing and reaching adjustments and resolutions that work for you. Anxiety, depression, grief (regarding loved ones, relationships, or lost opportunities), and addictive behaviors are symptoms, but they are also ways our mind and body try to tell us we are overwhelmed. There are alternative ways to handle these struggles.
I am a licensed clinical therapist. In my practice, I appreciate the significance of holistic health and the role that nutrition, exercise, movement, and time in nature play in mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I believe mindfulness and boundary-setting can be life-giving skills and can supplement other solutions when you are feeling overwhelmed. Overall wellness will allow you to: more carefully select your challenges, learn to let go of energy ‘vampires’ (people, obligations, and habits), and build more of the life you want to live.
I look forward to working with you.
Kent Zellefrow, LCSW
Anxiety can feel uncomfortable and debilitating and can cause countless hours of worry, extreme physical sensations, and interfere with quality of life. Therapy can help to improve these symptoms and get you back to doing the things you enjoy.
Working together, we will identify your goals and develop strategies to reach them.
We will increase your confidence in managing anxiety and the barriers you experience that have a negative impact on your life. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectial Behavioral Therapy, you will learn new perspectives and skills to better manage stressful situations.
In addition to specializing in anxiety, I also work effectively with those who are depressed, struggling with losses, or other life-changing events. I also specialize in treating individuals who are experiencing symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder. I am interested in hearing your story and would like to discuss how I can help. By calling today, you are taking the first step in your journey toward recovery.
Dr. Lauren Manning
Have your difficulties become so overwhelming that your mind no longer feels like a comfortable, safe place? Maybe you recognize yourself struggling to work through painful memories or feel trapped by past hurt? My clients often come to me after feeling stuck for so long which has left them feeling tired, hopeless, and at times, ashamed. I believe that within every person lies the ability to make positive changes and live in a meaningful way that aligns with their values and beliefs. I also know that, sometimes, this can be difficult because of barriers caused by difficult circumstances, unhelpful thought patterns, and distressing emotions.
As a licensed psychologist, I am trained in and experienced with utilizing evidence-based practices to help people overcome these barriers in a warm, supportive, and non-judgmental way. I listen closely to understand your unique context so that we can collaboratively identify a plan to help you feel better as quickly as possible. My areas of specialization include working with adults and adolescents who are struggling with life transitions, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues.
I have additional training and passion working with adult survivors of childhood emotional abuse and neglect. I also specialize in helping couples, including those who are struggling with moving past infidelity.
I believe that finding a good fit with a therapist is an essential part of any therapeutic process. If my approach feels like it could be what you are looking for, please contact me to learn more about how we can work together.
Melanie Beuth, LPC, ATR-BC
Life is stressful. There are times when even the best organized, thoughtful, careful, intelligent person finds themselves overwhelmed and feeling alone. Whether it's a long term chronic issue that you have finally decided to work through such as a childhood issue or trauma related to abuse; or you are dealing with a newer problem such as an identity crisis, job challenge, or relationship issue- I can help.
I work by using systems theory to help understand the forces that have shaped you, redefine the structure of your household, and encourage solutions for the smaller issues so that you have the energy to tackle the larger ones. I use cognitive therapy to help you examine past choices and make decisions that are more in line with your current goals. I am also a board certified art therapist so if you would like to express yourself creatively or examine your issues through art, I can provide this opportunity.
As a trauma specialist, I can tell you that many of us have had significant traumatic incidents in our lives that have altered our development. Sometimes these events are acute, meaning that they have a beginning and an end, like a car accident, an illness or a death. Other times, this trauma is a long, ongoing process that has a beginning sometime in our childhood and an end sometime after we have become an adult. Sometimes it’s caused by another hurting us but other times it’s sneakier and comes in a form that we might never think of as “trauma.”
That could be a history of being bullied, a minor accident, another person’s mental health (like a parent with borderline personality disorder or bipolar), or even being too harshly disciplined. All these traumas impact us. They create drama in our lives, and that drama can make it hard to find fulfillment or a sense of peace within your relationships or even your career.
EMDR- eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, is a well-researched type of therapy that can help you to identify the traumatizing event and help you to resolve it. Considered to be a “gold-standard” therapy, EMDR helps your brain to reassess how you have been impacted by your trauma and allows your memories to be part of your past instead of always in the present. The best part is you don’t have to share the details, which, is often a stumbling block to getting help. EMDR, in which I’m trained, help you to give up your ghosts and live a better life.
My approach is always strength- based and non-judgmental because I'm not perfect and I would never expect you to be. By giving me a call today, we can start a conversation about how I can help.

Therapy is one of the most personal and most empowering choices that you can make to support your health and happiness. Life can be full of uncertainties and challenges that benefit from having a positive, supportive, and non-judgmental person in your corner.
I’ m a licensed professional counselor and registered Art Therapist with more than eight years of experience working with adolescents, adults, and families. I specialize in providing therapy for people who are experiencing difficulties managing trauma or loss, depression, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and ADHD.
We will work together collaboratively to develop and support your unique goals for a happier, healthier future. I use numerous therapeutic approaches in my work, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT,) to help you identify unhelpful thoughts that may be limiting you from making more helpful choices based on increased growth and awareness. If you feel Art Therapy might be helpful in meeting your goals, it is always an option to incorporate into your treatment as well.
I invite you to call today to discuss more about how it is that I may be of assistance to you.
