Amy Miller, M.div., LMFT, RPT

Congratulations for taking this courageous step in your personal growth and thank you for considering me for this very personal process! Treatment typically begins when clients are overwhelmed to the point they need some help to grow through and past tough situations. Though it often begins concretely with stress and conflict management, this work often deepens into fruitful re-examination of personal values, family dynamics, problematic relationship patterns, existential or Spiritual themes.

The Spirit of my counseling invites individuals to explore the struggles that have limited their lives. I would love to help you feel understood, supported, accepted, safe, connected and empowered so that you can successfully engage life. During our work together we will focus on creating solutions and making opportunities out of your struggles.

I offer a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic Healing Space in which your true self can emerge and you can experience healing and growth. Together, let's get creative, raise hope, and find solutions.

Melissa L. McFall, LMHC, ATR-BC

Hi, my name is Melissa McFall. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Art Therapist. I work with children, adolescents and adults who are open to exploring creative possibilities and increasing their self-awareness through engaging in the art making process. Common issues my clients are often experiencing include anger management, anxiety, attention issues, behavioral issues, depression, and emotional dysregulation. Often these issues are related to trauma experiences that my clients wish to address so as to be able to move forward in their life to be more productive, happier and develop lasting, healthy and genuine relationships with other people.

As an art therapist I believe in the creative process and its power to create insight and change for individuals while building resiliency and emotional growth. To participate in Art Therapy no experience with art materials is required. The creative process and verbal discussion combined together create a space where change can occur.

Jessica Troxell, Clinical Mental Health Counselor Intern

Choosing to work toward a healthier life and a healthier you is an act of self-care you should be proud of. I understand we typically seek support when our problems feel larger than what we believe we can handle on our own. Are you hurt because of painful relationships? Do you feel lonely, unheard, or unwanted? Have you made terrible choices you are agonizing over? You are not alone! I am committed to providing you with a safe space to unburden your soul and explore the root of your struggles.

I promise to listen intently, and give you the support, understanding, and acceptance you need. You and your life are important and unique, so together we will create a customized plan that is just right for you! Your unique plan may include exploring your past and family dynamics, overall wellness and self-care practices, relationship and decision patterns, and much more.

I want to thank you for considering me to be part of your journey of self-exploration and growth. You can expect our sessions to be solution-focused: Identifying goals and obstacles, learning healthy strategies, and creating and implementing a plan. My goal is to help you find the true you, arm you with the tools you need to confront life's challenges, and work toward finding wholeness. I look forward to meeting you!
