Melissa Sauder, LPC, Clinical Director
Hello! I’m Melissa!
My specialty is helping women who long to feel supported, but feel stuck because life is overwhelming. My clients come to me for help with daily struggles such as emotional distress, a feeling of being stuck, relationship and family concerns, lack of support, and self-esteem. The pain that arises from having these concerns can be debilitating at times.
Whitney Halleman, LPC
Hi! I’m Whitney! I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor but that is just a fancy way of saying I’m someone you can talk to about anything and I’m trained in how to help.
I help people who wish they had extra support and encouragement but feel like they don’t have anybody they can trust. Some people are just uncomfortable talking to the people they do trust, like their parents, about certain topics. I support my clients in feeling more comfortable expressing their feelings, gaining confidence, and learning new communication skills and behaviors so they can have healthier and more rewarding relationships with parents, family, and friends.
Jamie Rimby, LPC
Hi, I'm Jamie!
Sometimes life puts us at a crossroads and we are left to decide how to proceed. Other times we might feel stuck, unsure of how to take the next steps on our life's journey. My job provides such powerful meaning and satisfaction because I have the honor of being the knowledgeable and caring professional that accompanies people during these challenging times, working collaboratively to solve problems, build strengths, and achieve goals.
Rella Miller, LSW
Hi, I’m Rella!
As a Licensed Social Worker, I help people feeling overwhelmed by life stressors and the idea of change to create new mindsets and experiences. I guide them in gaining insight into past and present patterns so that they can grow and build new futures in which they will feel peace, clarity, joy, and hope.
Abby Peters, LPC
Hi, I’m Abby.
It seems that at some level everyone’s lives have been touched by addiction, either through one’s own personal struggle or watching a loved one struggle with the disease of addiction. If you are currently having concerns about your use, or maybe you are wondering how you can help a loved one that is struggling with addiction, I can help.
Katie Greevy, LPC
Hi, I’m Katie!
I use an eclectic approach to therapy – all that means is that I take techniques from lots of different types of therapy to help you understand yourself and encourage change. I often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help reduce anxiety, cope with the residual impact of trauma, increase ability to manage depression symptoms, and improve self-esteem. I create a non-judgmental and calm space for you to explore and work through feelings, thoughts, image, and beliefs that may be keeping you stuck. In addition I provide feedback about how to increase self-awareness to make positive, healthy changes.
Elizabeth O'Hara, LCSW
Hello! My name is Elizabeth O’Hara.
I have been in practice for 18 years as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and approach therapy from an integrative perspective. I see women as individuals with unique life stories who are striving to make meaning from experience, find belonging and achieve fulfillment. I view therapy as a place to examine these stories in a joint effort to learn how people have become who they are and to learn more about the life they would like to live.
Dana Hampton, LPC
Hi, I’m Dana.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I effectively help individuals gain an understanding about themselves in order to navigate the muddy waters of life. I understand that asking for help and coming to therapy can feel overwhelming. My goal is to provide a safe, calm, and nonjudgmental space, so we can work towards accomplishing the positive changes you desire. I believe we all have the ability to heal and the strength to overcome anything that life throws at us.
Jennifer Collins, PsyD
Hi, I’m Jennifer!
I’m a licensed clinical psychologist and have been in the mental health field for 15 years. I’d like to think my many years of schooling and experience has given me the tools to help people navigate through life more effectively. Life certainly throws us many “curve balls” that knock us off course, resulting in heightened stress, anxiety, and/or depression.
I enjoy working from a strength-based approach, assisting people in finding their innate inner strengths and bringing them to the surface to problem solve and move forward.
