Mabel Stellato, MA, LPC

We all wish to find that inner balance and sense of joy and peace. I enjoy working with those who are in need of feeling happy and at peace and who wish to move forward and find the tools and their use to achieve every "small victory." If you have had a more difficult life journey, my areas of expertise include trauma and abuse. My focus is to help others to explore possibilities and to achieve resolution. It is important to be aware of not only what holds us back, but what keeps us from being all we wish to be.

I enjoy working with adults, couples, teens and children. I am able to assist young children to express what words cannot or when they cannot even find the words. This in turn creates a dialogue to help parents, help their children and increase communication on all levels.

Finding a comfortable and safe place to discuss your fears, frustrations or other personal issues with someone you can trust is essential. My office has a comforting, quiet atmosphere that makes you feel you are talking to a friend. Call me today and lets get started!

Are you ready to find the joy in your life again?

If so, call me today to schedule an appointment. For those ready to take the positive steps necessary to create a more rewarding future and enhance their daily life call me now!

If you have recently lost a loved one and can't seem to find a light in the storm or if you've been suffering from long term emotional/behavioral issues for what seems like your entire life, counseling can help you find your way back to the self you used to be or to become that person you always knew you could be.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Addictions Specialist, I can treat and diagnose many behavioral and emotional issues to help you on your way to a healthier, more vibrant existence.

If you have every thought, ...

     "I'm so tired of being tired."

     "I just can't seem to get things right."

     "I will never overcome life's obstacles."

     "I'm broken."

     "Other people don't understand me."

     "Maybe this is just the way things are."

  ...then call right now to start getting the tools you need to get out of that negative trap! You have the power to make positive changes in your life. Take the first step in making a change.

Sure, I've learned tons during my time in school and in my years of experience (and we will put that knowledge to good use.) But, you need to learn about you from you. The goal of counseling is not to need my strengths but to find and use your own.

I hope you will let me help you on your way to wellness.

April Carpenter, MA, LPC

Hi. Are you tired of trying to figure things out until you develop a head ache? Are you feeling like no one understands? Do you feel like you have been standing in the same ‘spot’ for too long but can’t seem to get moving in the right direction? Are you in a relationship that may need an unbiased, compassionate approach to help you and your loves one reconnect? Do you feel like you have been running in circles and you are ready to go forward but can’t quite seem to navigate your way to a clear path?

Well, I have the solution for you—Counseling!!!

Counseling is a great method for helping people help themselves!!! While in counseling, you will be able to voice your thoughts and opinions without fear of judgment or blame. Counseling helps people develop positive communication skills that will help increase positive interaction to help resolve issues/problems that can wreak havoc in your life. Counseling helps build foundations that will support the individual when life isn’t going the way we had hoped or strived for.

My counseling philosophy is that the whole person must be treated. We will work on the various facets of your life. Counseling empowers people. When a person feels better on the inside then the self empowerment the person develops, spills over into their daily environment.

Come and work with me. Allow yourself to be open to positive changes in your life. Help yourself move forward in a way that improves your overall quality of life!!!

Are you ready for a change?

Amy Sauls, MSW, LCSW, LCAS-A

I welcome children (6+), adults, couples, and families. I can help if you are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, mood disorders (bipolar), as well as issues that arise in relationships and family difficulties. I believe that our mind is the most important element that controls how and when we begin the healing process. Once you begin the healing process you can feel better emotionally and physically. As a result of this you can develop the strength and self-determination to break negative patterns. Once you have broken those negative patterns and cycles you may gain insight on how to create changes that can last for a lifetime.

When you are overwhelmed, hurting, or overcome with distress; it is vital to talk to someone who will not judge you, who will listen to you, and help you find resolutions. If you are experiencing difficulty and you want to talk to someone, I can help.

Now is the right time to address that situation that may be weighing you down. I am looking forward to the opportunity to assist you in reaching your goals and building a solid foundation for your future! Call now and schedule your first appointment!
