Michelle Ainsworth, LPC

I have worked in this profession for over 10 years and it continues to truly excite me when I get to witness my clients begin to recognize their potential and take charge of their lives, possibly for the very first time.  That’s why I have such passion for what I do.

Sean Oakley, LCSW

I have experience working with adults and adolescents experiencing anxiety, depression, and other issues. I believe very strongly in working collaboratively with you and treating you as the expert on your life.
I am especially passionate about working with people who identify as LGBTQ.

Leah Payne, LPE-I, LPC

Leah is dually licensed as an Independent Licensed Psychological Examiner (LPE-I) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

The "F" Word

Leah Payne, LPE-I, LPC
Forgive and forget. Okay, so that’s two “F” words, but I have your attention now. Alexander Pope has been famously quoted as having said, “To err is human; to forgive divine.” While I can see where he was going with this, I would venture to modify by adding that perhaps to forget is divine. In my experience, both personally and professionally, sometimes it is easier to forgive than to forget.
