Danielle Russo


I believe everyone can grow if given a safe, non-judgmental, nurturing environment. We can't change the past, but we can change how it affects us, how we look at it, and where we go from here. My motto is ‘We heal together’.

Kimberly Slagle


My passion is helping people learn to have better relationships- not only with each other- but with themselves,too. I will work with clients to understand, highlight, and validate their struggle, while gently challenging them to change what’s no longer working and become the best version of themselves.   

Therapist Steven Goff.jpg

Steven Goff


Quality psychotherapy starts with a strong rapport that is built on trust and a non-judgmental environment. I value listening to a person’s story and helping them make sense of their past, take responsibility for their present, and be encouraged by their future.


Therapist Jennifer Denning.jpg

Jennifer Denning


We don’t usually seek help when life is working for us. Whatever your issues are,  you are seeking help because what you have been doing is no longer working.  I provide a warm, engaging and interactive environment where change is possible.

Therapist Anna Noble.jpg

Anna Noble


When people come to therapy, they are looking for some change in their lives. They have likely tried to make those changes before, but somehow were unable to achieve the desired result. I believe that understanding the factors that keep someone from implementing a change is the key to therapy.

Therapist Bill Yockey.jpg

Bill Yockey


Developing a good relationship of trust and confidence is essential to therapeutic success. I see the therapist as a guide and support for the client as they take control of their own life journey. I believe in the innate good of every person and in everyone’s ability to manage their own lives, with the right education, proper skills and empathetic support.
