Louise Ann Will-Wallace, PHD

Specialty:  Life Coaching, Self Esteem, Relationship Issues, Counseling

As a doctoral level psychologist with over 25 years of diverse experience I approach problems from different perspectives always looking for what fits the client's needs. One of my strengths is building positive relationships with my clients. They feel comfortable talking with me and the unique and helpful ways I approach their issues. My goal is understanding your needs including your struggles, self esteem and interpersonal issues so that I can help you with your struggles or to work toward your goals. I approach each person without judgment and work toward understanding with compassion for the human struggles. I view and listen to each person with understanding and without judgment. Treatment is tailored to their unique history, strengths, and needs using a variety of information. I assist them in finding relief from depression or anxiety, and help with their personal growth. Assistance is only a phone call away. Clients frequently comment on my memory regarding their life history. This is because of the bond we build, this is not just a job for me. I aim for a deep understanding of how each individual's history relates to their current struggles focusing on promoting their growth toward health.

Gabrielle Merandi, MA

Specialty: Trauma and PTSD, Anxiety, Spirituality, Counseling

I take a holistic approach to therapy. Physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of each person are taken into account so that healing and wellness can be felt on every level. I take an eclectic approach to therapy, applying techniques tailored to the client based on their unique needs. I utilize EMDR as an efficient tool to assist clients in reprocessing troublesome fears, grief, and traumatic memories. I also offer mindfulness, reiki, and meditation exercises in order to help clients become more grounded, connected, relaxed and in tune with their experiences and healing. I take an empowerment approach to therapy, whereby each person may come to realize their personal potential to transform their lives for the better. My primary clinical interests include, but are not limited to, grief, stress and trauma, anxiety, depression, identity development, LGBTQ issues, major life transitions, and spirituality.

Sandra L. Perine, MA, LPC, NCC

Specialty: Relationship Issues, Trauma and PTSD, Child or Adolescent, Substance Abuse Counseling, Counseling

If you are dealing with emotional or relationship problems or traumatic life experiences, it is much more difficult and isolating to go it alone. Sometimes we feel stuck and unsure of how to move forward. There comes a time for many when getting help from a professional may be necessary. If you are going through a difficult time, trying to adjust to recent changes or dealing with long standing issues, I can help. I provide a safe and confidential place for clients to work through life's challenges. My belief is that therapy is a collaboration in which the client is the expert in his/her life and I bring a variety of theraputic experience and techniques to the process .Part of the excitement of being a counselor is bearing witness to the process of growth and healing.

Specific psycho-educational information is provided to assist you in the attainment, development, and enhancement of coping skills. To provide effective treatment, personally-tailored treatment plans are developed for clients. Treatment is available for a wide variety of mental health, personal, and relational issues. Therapy begins with broad-based approach initially, to better understand client issues. As therapy proceeds, focus is increasingly aimed at resolution of stuck points.
