Trey Holt, M.Div., LPC-MHSP
Just a regular guy dealing with regular people. With 25 years of experience in the field of mental health, nothing surprises me. I work under the theory that we all have our “stuff”! Sometimes it lets us function pretty well on a day-to-day basis, sometimes it doesn’t. I am very comfortable working with people in both of these situations, and all the places in between. Whether you are in crisis, or just feeling like you need a place to talk about your life and potential growth, my goal is to create a grace-centered, non-judgmental environment where that can be done.

Kim McKinney Rate, LPC-MHSP
There are few things more difficult in life than struggling, or watching your child struggle, and not knowing how to fix it. Unfortunately, we live in a world where we are often expected to put our best foot forward, ignore our pain, and go about our day as if nothing is wrong. This may work for a short time, but it often leaves us feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and discouraged. Kim is passionate about working with adults and adolescents who are in difficult phases of their lives and are struggling to rediscover happiness, pleasure, or meaning out of their current circumstances. During sessions she works to maintain an open environment where exploration and change can readily occur without judgment. She will guide you through the identification of solutions already present within your own life in order to solve current challenges, and work alongside you to implement these meaningful changes.

Emily Ector-Volman, LPC-MHSP (temp), NCC
Whether you're seeking therapy for yourself or your relationship, you may be feeling disconnected, exhausted, embarrassed, angry, or many other emotions. Perhaps you long for better communication, greater intimacy, and rebuilt trust. In addition to working toward re-connection and love in your relationship, sex is often a difficult topic to tackle. Creating a judgement-free space where you can explore these thoughts, feelings, and personal values is my highest priority as a therapist. I work with individuals, couples, and adult families using Imago Relationship Therapy and attachment-based EFT. I am trained in EMDR and OCSB (Out of Control Sexual Behavior) and am working toward sex therapy certification through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT).

Dakota Lawrence, M. Ed, NCC
Counseling is the process of growth and healing in the context of a safe, supportive, and challenging therapeutic relationship. The overarching goal of counseling is to improve self-awareness in a process that can help you make decisions and develop new strategies for dealing the challenges you may face. With these new skills, clients often report growth in their relationships, a greater sense of well-being, and the ability to better regulate their distress. I believe that you are the expert of your own experience and that therapy is a collaborative process. At times, this may be a slow and difficult process, requiring strength, patience, and courage. I have experience working with adults and adolescents targeting a variety of issues, including chronic pain/illness, trauma, attachment, depression, anxiety, and grief & loss issues. I utilize mindfulness techniques, evidence-based therapies (such as CBT, ACT, and DBT), and Sensorimotor interventions to provide a comprehensive, whole-person approach to healing and growth.

Your path through life is unique and following it requires healing and growth. You can be swayed from your authentic path when going through challenges or when recovering from trauma or harmful relationships. These are opportunities to learn and evolve.
