Allison Batty Capps MA, MFT
I have been working with children for over 14 years as a teacher and as a therapist. I believe in a holistic, relational approach to healing that integrates the mind, body, and spirit. As a therapist, I believe that our sense of self develops as we relate to our environment and in our relationships with others. I have experience treating children and their families in an inpatient and outpatient setting; my specialization includes treatment of children with behavioral/emotional struggles, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, children who have experienced trauma, and children who have experiences with auditory and visual hallucinations.
I firmly believe in working collaboratively with children and their families based on their cultural/spiritual values and beliefs to create a holistic, relational approach to therapy that integrates mindfulness, movement and expressive arts techniques to foster recognition and expression of their ideal physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health.
Audra Lee, MS, MA, LPC intern, NCC, RAPC
Registered Ayurvedic Psychology Consultant
I am here to listen to your story to gently help you sort through what might feel like a big overwhelming pile of mess, whether from self-criticism, unwanted emotions, too much stress, unresolved interpersonal traumas, a nagging sense of dissatisfaction with life circumstances or career path, or just feeling stuck. These issues may be manifesting in a variety of ways such as anxiety, depression, burnout, emotional intensity, physical health challenges, and/or relationship issues. Together we’ll uncover the truth of what your pain is trying to tell you about yourself, what’s really important to you, and what is and is not working in your life. This is such an important precursor to lasting change, and it’s not easy or necessary to do it alone.
Daniella Marchick, MS, CRC
I find meaning in helping others build supportive environments and relationships. I can help you build healthy habits with yourself and others, and guide your journey to finding your own life’s meaning. Making sustainable positive changes and getting to deeply know oneself can provide powerful impacts throughout one’s life. By using an integrated psychotherapy approach and applying appropriate theories, methods, and techniques, this can assist you with leading your life in awareness, accepting of self and others, and creating more fulfilling relationships. Helping others choose and discover a better way of living and awakening to inner peace and happiness brings me joy.
