Hi there! Choosing a therapist is a personal experience. Below you can “meet” each therapist. You’ll see their experience, but more importantly their personality and style.
While each therapist brings unique gifts and style, you can rest assured we all have the same mission: to help you live your best life.
At Inspire, we don’t just focus on clinical symptoms–we focus on results. If you have something holding you back (anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship troubles, etc.), we have clinical tools to help. BUT, we don’t stop there. We want to INSPIRE you to live your best life. Our goal is that every client leaves our office a better person.
Why? We believe you are a gift to this world. We believe that inspiring one person to live their greatest life, will inspire another. We believe the world changes one person at a time with love, connection and inspiration. Your role in this process is vital. When you get support for yourself or your family, you are doing your part in this community and world to spark change.
We’ve been waiting for you! You are the reason we wake up every morning, passionate about our jobs. We want you to feel the freedom, joy and connection counseling can bring.
Make yourself at home. Take a look around. And, if you would like someone to personally walk you through the process, we’re happy to do that! Either our super-friendly Office Manager (Jackie), or super-fun Owner (Lauren) will personally make sure you are comfortable to get started.
Take the next step. Start living your best life. Don’t wait any longer!
