Karisa Quick, APCC, PPS- Associate Therapist
I have a passion for helping people in all stages of life heal and grow to become the best version of themselves. I take a cognitive behaviroal approach in my sessions centered around the theory that our behavior, thoughts, and feelings are all connected. Changing our behavior will change our feelings and thoughts. With that in mind, I want to help clients understand their feelings and how that affects their thoughts and behavior. People have the capacity to reach their full potential but may need assistance in utilizing techniques, coping strategies, changing maladaptive schemas, and setting and following through with goals. That's where our work together will align. I partner with my clients and value them for the unique, whole person that they are. I primarily work with children, teens, and young adults. I offer a safe, empathetic approach that is client-centered.

Bradlianne Dinsmoor, MSW, LCSW-Licensed Therapist
I believe healing happens in relationship. It is my great honor to walk alongside people in their most difficult season and to be a compassionate witness to their pain, triumphs, and transformation. My desire is to create a safe environment for my clients and to create room for their pain so that they may heal and find freedom. I believe that the process of healing is the process of reclaiming your power, integrating your experiences, and becoming who you were always meant to be. Although the process of therapy can be quite painful-I make room for a wide variety of emotions within the therapy room. I am as passionate about holding your pain as I am about celebrating your ‘small wins’ and laughing at life’s little absurdities. No matter the reason or length of time we are together, I look forward to being invited into your story.

Wendi Baptist-McGehee, MSC/MFCT, LMFT -Licensed Therapist
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I have experience working with clients and families of all ages and backgrounds who have experienced a variety of challenges. I bring to the table an eclectic psycho therapeutic approach utilizing evidenced based therapeutic interventions. I have a passion for working with children and families and specialize in working with foster youth, their biological parents, and foster families as they struggle with issues related to being in the "system", reunification, recovery, and healing. I believe that you need to meet each individual that you are working with where they are, creating a safe and secure environment in order to promote strength and balance. Over the years I have found that my passion for art and creativity utilized in a therapeutic setting can benefit individuals by providing an outlet for self expression, reducing anxiety, pain, stress, teaching relaxation, and fostering positive interactions and increased communication between children and their families. My goal is to provide my clients with the tools necessary to navigate through life's many challenges and get to a place where they can continue living their best life.
"Living your BEST life is your most important journey." -Oprah Winfrey
Alesha Marshall- MSW,LCSW,- Licensed Therapist
We all want to feel more secure, stable, and essentially "good enough," but the uncertainties of life can throw us off balance. We are not broken, I believe that therapy provides the much needed insight and awareness to help us on the journey of growth and self-acceptance. It is through this therapeutic relationship that we can transform our perceptions of ourselves and develop more positive coping skills, better self-care, and new thought patterns. It is my passion to create a warm, calm, safe space in which clients feel comfortable exploring the negative thoughts and stressful situations life can bring. My approach to therapy is one of collaboration and emotional support based on open communication, respect, non-judgement. You are the expert in your own life. I sincerely believe that we all have the potential for a balanced life with a little guidance and support. As a licensed clinical social worker I seek to provide that guidance to empower my clients to develop independence, decisiveness, and confidence. I have experience working with adolescents and adults at some of the most difficult points in their lives and I am skilled at providing the empathy and support needed to help you navigate life's challenges.
