It is my hope that counseling can offer you an opportunity to;

Share Your Personal Story, Find Value in Who You Are, Experience Healing, Develop Positive Relationships, & Create Significant Change in Your Life.

Pauline Botchway

Associate Practitioner & Licensed Professional Counselor

I strongly believe that as human beings, we have the ability to change and transform our lives through choice. As there is not one single theory which can capture our experiences as human beings, I utilize an integrated approach which allows me to use some aspects of: Gestalt, Existential, Solution Focused as well as high utilization of Cognitive Behavioral therapy. I look forward to facilitating your transformation.

-Pauline

R. Scott Scampini 

Associate Practitioner & LCSW

My commitment as a professional provider, is to bring you the best of shared knowledge, experience and compassion through ‘here & now’ approaches of individual, cojoint and group interventions. Counseling is a courageous effort to break down barriers, move through grief and loss, or finding deeper meanings in our personal life.

Don Bennion

Associate Practitioner & LPC Intern

 I have a deep respect for the unique richness of each individual's journey. Getting an individual's unique journey to work for them rather than against them is one way of describing the counseling process.

I believe that we all have an inherent capacity to grow, heal, and learn from our experiences. I value authenticity and humor and will use these in session as we work towards your goals. I look forward to teaming up to create the healing you desire in your life.

Christina Chelette

Associate Practitioner & Registered Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

I believe individuals have the ability to create change in their life, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. My approach is existential-humanistic and person centered. In addition to traditional talk therapy I have used expressive therapies in my work with individuals who are suffering. This type of therapy can give an individual space to experience play, spontaneity, and authenticity. I look forward to moving through this healing journey together.

Julie Williamson

Associate Practitioner & Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Life is complex and very few people make it through unscathed. But we are incredibly resilient beings, and have the capacity to heal and change. As a counselor I want to provide a non-judgmental place to explore your true self, promote insight, and discover who you desire to be. Change is the process of understanding yourself so you can BECOME yourself. I feel fortunate to embark on this healing journey alongside you

Shauna Washington 

Associate Practitioner & LCSW

I Believe healing is ALWAYS possible. It takes facing darkness and truths that you may not want to face, but you won't be facing it alone. In my work, I aim to create a bond and partnership with my clients. I look forward to working along side you in your exploration, growing, & healing

Zoraya Henao 

Associate Practitioner & Licensed Professional Counselor 

"The complexities of the human experience have fascinated me since I was a young child. As an adolescent, I began to grapple with existential questions that did not have simple answers. My inquisitive nature took me to seek answers through the experiences and stories of others, which have- and continue to- shed a light into our innate power to create our reality. As a therapist, I get to experience first-hand the power of healing and growth through every one of my clients. I get the honor of accompanying each of them in their own and unique journey into self discovery and realization. I would be honored to be a part of your journey, and support you in finding your own truth, power, and balance."

Ashlee Armstrong 

Associate Practitioner, Supervisor, & Licensed Professional Counselor 

My treatment approach is founded on a belief that people have a core self, distinct from what brings them to therapy, capable of overcoming complex, painful experiences. I help clients understand the core function of their concerns as attempts to solve present or past problems, rather than personal deficits. I partner with people to harness their inherent capacity to develop solutions. I bring a curiosity about how presenting concerns arise for each unique individual or family system without making assumptions. I value authenticity, humor, and ease within the therapeutic relationship. Areas of particular interest for me include: helping women to heal histories of trauma and supporting couples.

J. Shane Esplin

Associate Practitioner  & Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

Each individual has a unique life story, full of nuances, that shapes who they are. This story deserves recognition and understanding without judgment. I try to look at problems from multiple perspectives while helping clients discover new insights about themselves. I believe that each person has the power to make positive and lasting changes in their life. I look forward to meeting you and learning about your life story and the future you are looking to create.
