Kim McLeod MA, Resident in Counseling
I have a Masters in Mental Health Counseling and for the 5 years I've working closely with Adults diagnosed with depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, schizoaffective and bi-polar. For the past year I've worked closely with children and their families between 8yrs-17yrs, diagnosed with autism, adhd, anxiety, depression, and mood dysregulation.
We live in a society where mental health still hard to talk about in most circles. I believe your mental health is just as important as your Spiritual and physical health. You need all to become a well balance human being. Trust is vital and very much needed in therapy and I will respect your boundaries. I am proud of you for making the first step.
My name is Miranda N Dennis and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Dialectical Behavioral Therapist. I provide speaking opportunities for communities and organizations who are seeking inspiration and want to be free from emotional strong holds, learn how to manage life stressors and gain better focus, attention and vision for their life to mention a few topics. Being that I am DBT Certified I offer companies DBT consultation team meetings and foundational training . In addition, I practice holistic psychotherapy, this means that I tailor your sessions to explore, challenge and to meet your social, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health needs through traditional counseling as well as exploring alternative methods of therapy. For an example, I use Young Living Essential Oils in all of my sessions to help create or increase a sense of harmony, peace and serenity. No worries if you have an allergy just let me know and I will make adjustments.
