I am not your typical nor traditional therapist! If you're looking for a therapist who is stuffy and uptight, or if you prefer clinical jargon and lots of big words, I am not the therapist for you. I’m the therapist who may show up wearing jeans and sandals one week and a long dress the next. I have tattoos and don’t try to hide them. I will call you on your crap when appropriate, and I might even swear while doing so. I support BLM, LGBTQIA+ and I believe in Science. I may not be a "typical" therapist, yet I am me & I am genuine. If you want to become the best you possible, give me a call! I know I can help.

Clinical Therapist

Life can be very challenging, and sometimes we need support to become more self-aware and make the changes necessary to rise above the circumstances. It is my job to give you the tools to navigate through your most difficult life encounters. I will provide a safe, nurturing, and judgment-free atmosphere that will allow you to begin your journey to self-healing. Learning from your emotions and past experiences is the best way to grow and heal. I combine life experiences, psycho-education, and evidence-based treatments to help clients understand their symptoms, re-frame thought patterns, and use the tools we learn in session in everyday life. Allow me to help reconnect you to your strengths and purpose by processing and understanding your thoughts and emotion.

Sometimes life gets in the way of our happiness. Sometimes we continue to struggle with challenges from our past. Whatever the challenges, there is hope to move through those challenges that keep us from living our most fulfilled selves. Whether your challenges in life are depression, out-of-control behaviors, marital issues, divorce recovery, anxiety, the effects of bullying, or a history of abuse - I can support you in your journey. I work with individuals and couples and use a psychodynamic and somatic approach that integrates the whole person. I work with men and men's issues, women, couples, and adolescents. You will not be alone. I look forward to partnering together to support your goals.

Kendella Coleman, BA, MA, M.Ed, LLPC

Clinical Therapist

I have worked in the helping/health field for more than 35 years with 25 years in the dental field as a Dental Assistant and as a Dental Assistant Instructor. During my years of working in the dental field, I had the opportunity to encounter many individuals from all walks of life with many issues that seemingly disturbed their “PEACE”. That experience encouraged my counseling journey.

My belief is that every individual should live a life of “PEACE”. I believe that “PEACE” is accomplished by combating issues that have disturbed one’s emotional, financial, physical, and spiritual health. My ultimate goal is to assist clients in exploring and processing their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, to improve their quality of life engulfed in “PEACE”.

Patients typically come into therapy feeling anxious, afraid and wanting relief. I strive to alleviate this discomfort with my caring, open, and empathetic demeanor. Experience has shown me that therapy can help patients better live life on life's terms. I believe that through acceptance, committed action, and the help of a professional, lasting change is possible.

Fun Facts:

1. I love music I especially love singing, in fact as a young girl I won several awards for my vocals.

2. I love visiting museums and the knowledge of history it brings.

3. I love traveling and experiencing new adventures.

Isabel Max, LLMSW

Clinical Therapist

My philosophy in therapy is that the client is the expert of themselves and their situation. I can provide some guidance and an outside perspective, but ultimately my goal is to help you discover your unique abilities and means for bettering yourself that are already within you. My goal is not to fix your problems for you, but to help you find new perspectives and tools for managing problems in general so that you are better able to handle whatever life throws your way. I have experience with a wide variety of client populations and presenting problems, including work with the LGBTQ+ community and experience with holistic modalities and grief therapy. If you're looking to share your story with an empathetic and empowering ear, I look forward to meeting with you.

Michanda Gant, LLMSW

Clinical Therapist

Making the decision to speak to an unfamiliar person about your personal life takes courage, strength, and determination, and to that, I say: “Congratulations on taking the first step”. As your therapist, I am authentic with you. I genuinely understand how it feels to experience the highs and lows of life while trying your best to balance family, work, personal interests, and friendships. Together, we will discover the roadblocks that are preventing you from having the quality of life you imagine having and work as a team to determine the best solution that works for you. My approach to therapy is tailored to your specific needs and abilities, however, the outcome is primarily based on the amount of time and effort you put into doing the work in order to create the change you desire. Change is not always easy, but the reward is priceless. I enjoy working with clients who are experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship issues via phone or video.
