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

 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.

-Don

Carmen Kendall

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.

Shauna Washington

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."

J. Shane Esplin

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.

Paula J. Bloom N.C.C 
Associate Practitioner  & Professional Counselor Associate

It is impossible to go through life without adversity and pain. Often, these challenges can make us feel as if we have lost control of ourselves and the world around us. I believe that individuals have the power to gain positive control and self-direction of their own lives when given the necessary tools to do so.  I'm excited to meet you where you are and look forward to building a safe and supportive environment within which you can find healing.

Liz Peoples 

Associate Practitioner & Licensed Professional Counselor

Therapy is a unique and vulnerable process meant to support those who seek it out, highlighting each of your strengths and inherent resiliency along the way. My therapeutic approach explores how thoughts, beliefs, and experiences work to influence you and impact how wanted changes are achieved. It is with this understanding, as well as through communication and collaboration that I work with clients to accomplish all the wanted outcomes of the therapeutic process. I look forward to starting this shared experience with you soon!

Ashley Boonenberg M.A.
Associate Practitioner & Professional Counselor Associate

I believe healing is about connecting to and embracing who we really are and what we want from life, as well as assigning meaning to our experiences that help us to grow and feel cared for. Together, I help you discover and connect to what feels most authentic and true and for you. Ultimately, our work together is designed to culminate in your ability to thrive in life, feel safe and at peace in your own skin, and develop and maintain healthy relationships with loved ones who will travel beside you in this journey of life. I look forward to meeting you!

Nicholas Paszkiet
Associate Practitioner, Supervisor, & LCSW

We have so many pressures and commitments from society that it becomes easy to forget about what is truly important and who we really are. Change happens when we're able to stay in the present moment, obtain clarity surrounding our beliefs about ourselves and the world, and stay mindful of what truly matters to us. I look forward to working side by side as a team to move through this invaluable change process.

Mahina (Michelle) Wong

You know yourself best, and I aim to deeply listen. I aim to cultivate a safe and supportive space of open presence, respect and acceptance in which you feel encouraged to explore challenges and parts of yourself that yearn to feel heard, seen and validated. I gently guide you at your unique pace toward identifying unhelpful patterns and barriers, deepening self-awareness and developing trust in your inner resources. It is my honor to be of support on a journey toward healing and returning to one’s innate wholeness.

Rachel Iverson
Associate Practitioner & LPC Associate

I believe human beings are a complex combination of nature and nurture. While both shape us, I believe every single one of us is capable of altering the course of these principles when we are ready. The power of finding your inner peace resides within you and my role is to help you access that power. I value the importance of creating a safe space as we begin our work together, moving toward understanding of who you are in the entirety of your experiences. I will meet you where you are at and offer you tools and support to move from where you are at to where you want to be.

Kristine J Rodrigues
Associate Practitioner & LCSW

We are all capable of change and growth &  can access joy in our lives. We can grow and change from our experiences. Sometimes we get stuck and need help moving into the next chapter or even into the next part of the book without judgement. I look forward to being your guide as you write your next chapter.

Brian Jackson
Associate Practitioner & LPC

I believe most of us have an ability to change when given the opportunity. I like helping individuals learn to accept themselves to work with themselves to heal, rather than continuing to shame themselves. Being more understanding and compassionate with ourselves usually leads to better results. I look forward to teaching and supporting you while you find healthier ways to manage your way of dealing with your problems.

-Brian

I believe that the most important part of therapy is for a client to feel heard and understood-- never judged. I feel honored to create this space for others and love to see what beautiful things can come from vulnerability and letting go of shame. I believe that change cannot happen when shame exists. I look forward to working together in your healing process.

Miranda Ascheri
Associate Practitioner 

As a clinician, I collaboratively engage with clients and provide an environment where individuals, intimate partners, and families can explore their unique identities, perspectives, strengths, and problems. I hold the belief that each person is the expert of their life story and engage in a curious stance while working with clients towards change. I look forward to working with you in the process.

-Miranda

Andrea Gregory
Associate Practitioner & CSWA

Everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve inner peace and acceptance of self to live their best life. I believe everyone has the capability to heal, change, and obtain interpersonal growth. While this journey is often a difficult one I will join you; to challenge, support, and guide you along the way. Personal growth and change through self-assessment can bring up many unpleasant and difficult feelings; therapy is an investment and commitment to self. My approach is individualized with the belief that you are the expert of yourself. Looking forward to meeting you!

-Andrea

IMG_4418_edited.jpg

I believe in the sacred worth and value of each being and that no individual is above another. Everyone has the potential for ultimate joy and fulfillment in their lives. Therapy is not only for those who are struggling in life but for everyone. Our purpose in life is to be our most authentic selves and through self-exploration we can discover our inner light. I would be honored to begin this journey toward joy and fulfillment with you.

Working with me is like having someone who really gets you and is always 'in your corner.' As your therapist I promise to laugh with you, support you, and push you (as needed and only when you're ready). I'll guide you through the tough conversations, and help you process difficult emotions and past traumas. You'll leave your sessions feeling seen and understood, with a fresh perspective and new skills in hand to implement in your life and relationships.
