JoAnn E. Sheffield, MSW, LCSW-C, Supervi

Specialty: Relationship Issues, Anxiety Trauma and PTSD

What drew me to become a therapist was a strong desire to help people who feel stuck in some aspect of their life. I realize that the thought of talking to someone about your most intimate life struggles can be a difficult one. As a therapist, I strive to foster a supportive, trusting, and caring relationship with my clients. It is my most sincere desire to help clients heal and learn how to deal with life's struggles. If you have a strong desire to change, I encourage you to contact me and let the journey begin today. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, loss and grief, coping with medical issues, relationship issues, trauma and PTSD. I am also a Board Certified Supervisor and can provide clinical supervision towards advanced licensure. I believe that the most important aspect of counseling is the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client. As a therapist, I work with clients to identify areas of change and growth and discuss various strategies to help them achieve life or career goals. I also provide support and understanding through life's journey.

Specialty: Grief, Anxiety, Depression, Counseling, Social Worker

I am passionate about working with my clients to help them move towards a greater emotional well-being. I provide a warm environment where clients are able to feel safe to express themselves and tell their story. I have worked with individuals for 15 years and have helped my clients realize that life all about growth and change which isn't always easy or comfortable. Our lives can be stressed from many things like death, conflict with a spouse, illness, workplace demands, our children, aging parent or just living in today's world. It is my goal to help you make positive changes and together we can develop effective coping skills to help you make your life the best it can be.

Mary Anne Alderfer, LPC, EDS, LPC, LMFT

Specialty: Life Transitions, Grief, Divorce, Counseling

I bring 30 years of counseling experience to our time together. My orientation can best be described as eclectic, drawing from rogerian, cognitive behavioral, gestalt, and family systems theory and techniques. Our first session provides the opportunity to decide together whether I am best able to help you accomplish your goals. If you are unsure of who/what would best suit your needs, I will be glad to offer my help in finding the resources you may need. I work primarily with adults individually, with the exception of premarital counseling. Specialties include: premarital counseling, life transitions (ie. separation, job change, empty nest, retirement) grief, caregiving and end if life issues. Client feedback: 'You were attentive, efficient, patient, insightful, impartial; you provided a safe, comfortable space in which to work, provided solid boundaries and good guidance but in an unobtrusive way.' 'You conveyed warmth and humor when appropriate, which indicated that your humanity was intact and you were showing up as a whole person'

I believe in the innate capabilities we each possess for healing ourselves. I also believe that we all need help from time to time, that life can present challenges that feel overwhelming. Together with each client, I work to develop strengths and achieve life goals, to address both current life challenges as well as long-standing issues.
