Personal message from Michelle:
I have worked as a counselor for many years, and so I feel extraordinarily grateful to be able to offer my services to you. Life can be difficult and, at times, unexpected challenges for us all. Sometimes those challenges are too overwhelming to solve on your own.
My style is personal, professional, friendly, and reassuring. Asking for help can be difficult, but it can be the best place to start. Most of my clients wish they would not have waited so long. So don't put if off any longer. Please call me for a consultation today. Together we can take those steps in the right direction.

Personal message from Kelli:
Life is messy. We all have a story. If you are reading this, you may be struggling, as we all can at times. The thought of seeking counseling can be scary. I strive to make this process as comfortable as possible. I have a passion to help marriages regain trust, positive communication, passion, fun, and meaning. I will not only listen, but provide tools to help you regain control of your life. Relationships are important, but can be difficult to navigate. I will help equip you with tools and techniques to improve your life. Take that step to stop "just settling" in your marriage. I can help you get the marriage you deserve and desire.
I also enjoy working with men and women with depression, anxiety or who feel overwhelmed with the demands of work and family. I encourage you to give counseling a try, even if you have tried it in the past. If not now, when? Everyday is the opportunity for a new beginning.
