Sometimes it can feel like all of your responsibilities are taking over and there is no time for you. Let me help you find you amid the daily grind: parental responsibilities, work commitments, spousal duties, and everyday tasks. I will be here to listen, guide, and teach you how to manage everything on your plate more effectively. I believe that when you are feeling good, in control, and energized, your true potential will guide you to success.

Christine Kensicki, LICSW 

Is your tween or teen struggling with school, relationships, or just finding ease in life? I help kids who are anxious, depressed, or who struggle to manage through the stress. I can help them get out of crisis, and learn skills and strategies that they can use throughout their life to be successful at any age or stage! I am passionate about whole body wellness, preventing future issues, and teaching people strategies to retrain their brain to protect it from stress. I am also trained in a unique style of yoga that is more active and movement based and I often integrate that and other strategies as needed. In other words, my toolbox is diverse and I will find something that works for your tween or teen!

Relationships are the cornerstone of our lives. The way we live and love as partners, as parents, as siblings, as friends impacts the way we move in the world and can either support or detract from us living our our purpose. I am passionate about coming along side of you at whatever stage you are in and finding the out of box solution that is going to help you find true fulfillment in life. My passions include couple's counseling, individual psychotherapy,  parents of kids with special needs, and issues surrounding pregnancy, pregnancy loss, postpartum, and parenting. I am not only LGBTQIA aware, but I am informed, affirming, and well trained.

Dyhanna Noble, LMHC

Some people just seem to find ease at school, in life, with friendships, with their sense of self... but not everyone. If you or someone you love is struggling with self-esteem, managing stress, anxiety, depression, or settling into ease in your life, I'd be honored to help. My couch is a place where you can come to feel safe, grounded, and get the clarity you need to move through life with the kind of confidence that you see other people exuding. As a yoga teacher, former guidance counselor, and brain geek I blend together real world strategies, movement, and education that will help you find mastery in your day to day life.

I am a no-nonsense, real world therapist who loves helping professional men and women who are successful at work and want more ease and success at home. It is frustrating when your partner or loved ones don't seem to align with what you know will work to get everything running smoothly. You don't want stress or conflict at home, but sometimes it is unavoidable despite your best efforts. Let's develop a strategy together that will help you get your needs met at home and have the kind of life that makes you excited to be driving into your driveway, not on edge.
