Cody Norris, M.S - AMFT 117090

I help teens and young adults navigate the process of exploring their identity and their place in a difficult world. I work primarily with teens and young adults who may be struggling with the many transitions that occur during this phase of life, especially if you are making sense of bad experiences or broken relationships from childhood. This confusion can show up in different ways. You might feel anxious, depressed, or angry, isolate yourself from others, or argue with family. Sometimes you might experience voices, visions, or beliefs that others think are strange. You are not alone.

I aim to help you uncover your inner strengths and coping abilities, while also providing some concrete tools for managing your stress, anxiety, and depression. I believe that our relationships with others are one of our greatest sources of strength and resilience. I practice trauma-informed, systemic therapy.

 

Reaching out for help is an essential part of being human, not an indication that something is wrong with you. I look forward to talking with you for a free phone consultation to see if your therapeutic goals would be a good fit with my approach. I am currently accepting new clients.

I understand what it's like to live life ruled by devastating chronic pain and illness, crippling anxiety, and being so sensitive that you feel everything! I help people resolve chronic pain, anxiety and sadness, not just manage it. Connecting the dots to understand how your childhood (upbringing, trauma, stressful events, family) may be contributing to your mental distress today can be extremely eye opening and transformative. Healing and becoming a secure capable human is the goal and completely attainable! I view therapy as a collaboration and as a therapist I am an active participant and guide.

 

While I work with a variety of individuals, I sub-specialize in mind body syndromes also known as Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) such as chronic pain, IBS, Fibromyalgia, fatigue, female pelvic pain such as Vulvodynia, anxiety, and more. I am fascinated in neuroplasticity, how our brains can change, and how we can heal from these syndromes!

 

In my sessions I pull from multiple therapy modalities. I am a Certified Trauma Professional and am trained in EMDR and like using it for limiting self-beliefs and trauma. I see clients throughout the day and into the evening in person and virtually. Find out more about me by visiting my website and setting up your complementary 20 minute phone call.

Johanna Spokny, MSW - ACSW 103981

Asking for help may be one of the biggest challenges that we face. My primary goal is to offer a safe space to talk about and process the small things that may not feel important to big things such as family dynamics and traumas.

 

By building a trusting relationship with your therapist, my goal is to get you to a place where you feel content, more aware of what you want and the goals that you have. I believe that you are an expert in your life. Through the process of talking about our past experiences and learning about how they impact us today, my goal is to help guide you and arrive at a place of peace.

I provide therapy with a focus on "meeting the client where they are at". I am extensively trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which addresses problematic patterns of thoughts, feelings and subsequent behaviors. My strengths include practicing coping skills and mindfulness techniques. I work with clients to process trauma's, significant grief and loss.

Now more than ever is a time where connections to others may feel strained. I provide a therapeutic outlet that is safe, welcoming, culturally sensitive and open. I am currently available for both in person and telehealth sessions.

Hayley Crossley, MSW - ACSW 95394

Whether this is your first time starting therapy or hundredth visit, it is a tiresome task finding a new therapist. Our mental health needs are not all the same and your therapist should not be either. If you have found yourself living in the past or future (really anywhere but the present) I hope to help you in processing and resolving any trauma or negative life experiences that are making everyday living difficult.

We will look at how trauma and negative life experiences have impacted your life. Together we will examine any barriers or roadblocks that have prevented you from healing and making life more manageable. I have experience working with people who also have issues with substance misuse and will better help you in understanding the role of trauma in this area.

As a social worker, I take pride in ensuring my clients have access to adequate care and utilize a sliding scale if necessary. I will meet my clients with where they are at in their mental health journey. I have training in EMDR therapy and utilize a trauma-informed lense as I know these issues are extremely difficult to discuss.
