Linsay Donaldson
LCPC

As a therapist, I believe in meeting clients where they are and assisting them in shaping the direction of their future.  By examining their past experiences and interactions we can assess together what patterns may be in place and work to disrupt the negative ones while building upon the positive patterns in order to influence the future.

Carli Recker
LSW

Therapy, at its best, combines both insight and action. Understanding ourselves better can provide a kinder and less judgmental frame of understanding how we got here. But taking steps (both in life and during therapy) to heal and make changes is also essential for a satisfying outcome. That’s why my approach as a therapist combines the depth of insight-oriented psychotherapies and mindfulness with the action-oriented aspects of behavioral therapies and techniques.
