Hello, my name is Amy Long, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with six years of experience.  I approach therapy from an integrative perspective, using a wide variety of mind-body techniques such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Neurotherapy, and Biofeedback.  I specialize in pediatrics (children ages 5-12) and personality disorders. I have been trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and utilize it frequently in my individual counseling.  I also specialize in managing chronic pain, moving through grief and loss, depression management, and debilitating anxiety disorders.
Hello, I am Donna Janiec, a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC) with two years of experience working with clients in crisis/trauma situations and those with co-occurring disorders of substance use and mental illness.  Although I am a recent graduate, I bring a lifetime of experiential knowledge to counseling sessions combined with contemporary counseling information and practices.  I have an extensive family tradition with the US Armed Forces as a military dependent, spouse, and DoD civilian, which has given me firsthand knowledge of the military community and culture.  Like Amy, I counsel using an integrative approach, realizing each client is an individual with unique needs and concerns.  I specialize in helping clients individually and in groups to navigate through trauma (recent and unresolved), grief and loss, depression, and anxiety disorders. 
I'm Rusty. I'm not certified yet, but mom say's I'm really close!  My approach is the best!  I'm always happy to meet new people with a little bit of slobber, a LOT of hair, and a tail that never stops

           Amy's Counseling Philosophy                    Sharon's Counseling Philosophy

Relationships have the power to heal.

 

In counseling, it is our relationship that provides a safe place to explore change.

You are the expert in your own life, and you have the answers within you. 

You have value. 

Perhaps you have made some choices you now regret, but your past does not define you. 

You have an unlimited capacity for growth. 

Change happens between sessions. 

Together, we will explore the skills and knowledge that will help you implement change at home.

The way you think about the world directly impacts the way you feel about yourself, your relationships, and your success.

Relationships are the primary force in our lives;

without healthy relationships our lives suffer. Because relationships are so important, the way we attach to others is within those relationships, and how to create healthy attachments, is extremely important. What I work toward is healthier relationships for my clients; relationship with self as well as relationships with others. In my work I use a variety of interventions, to include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, and trauma-focused techniques. Every client is unique and therefore a unique approach is developed. My goal is to provide each client the tools and skillset to navigate through the difficult times.
