Dr. David McFadden (LCPC, LMFT, D.Min.) - 3 Years Experience

I like and I believe in people. I find people to be incredible and fascinating in their ability to cope with, deal with, live through, learn from and change as a result of the experiences life throws at them. I always, always believe there is a way to move forward. There are times when the way is hard to find; there are times when our brains just shut down to the possibility that there is a way through the mess and uncertainty in front of us. But I Know There Is A Way! There is always a way! My job is to help you believe that this is truth and then to find the way that works best for you...

Gianna Trombino (LCSW) - 5 Years Experience

If you're looking for a clinician who will woo you with complex professional jargon and analyze your every action and every word in painstaking detail, I'm likely not the therapist for you. If you're looking for a therapist who will make you feel valued and heard, can sit comfortably with you through very difficult, complex and oftentimes confusing feelings without judgement, provide honest (sometimes difficult to hear) feedback and integrate some humor into treatment while making real progress toward healing and your goals, it's nice to meet you! We can tackle these issues together and we will be on the same team...

Pearl Parks (MA, LCPC) - 13 Years Experience

My purpose is to inspire hope in individuals, couples and families. My goal is to help, those that I serve, to gain/regain their own purpose; and, live emotionally healthy lives. I am glad that you reached out for assistance; sometimes, this is the most difficult step. There are times when we can feel that life is “too much”; and, we are overwhelmed. At other times, we may not feel overwhelmed; but, feel that something is “not quite right”, or feel a bit “off-center”. You may feel this, individually, or as it relates to how you interact with others...

Grace Norberg (LMFT) - 6 Years Experience

Are you feeling anxious, sad or unsatisfied in your relationships with people, and stuck in figuring out how to attract the connection you want or how to repair what you have? I believe that all problems are relational- being human is to care about connection! I am here to help you analyze what is going wrong, and find new patterns that can help you manifest your best life. I look at change as something necessary but difficult- we tend to remain the same and follow old patterns until they no longer work for us. That's where I come in as a therapist, to help you through this difficult time with empathy and an outside perspective...

Sarah Hope (M.A., LCPC) - 3 Years Experience

I have always been an intuitive, empathic, and inquisitive human and as corny as it may sound, helping to bring “world peace” has always been a consistent life goal of mine. However, from as early as I can remember, I was always held back in my personal and professional journeys because of the multitude of thoughts and panic feelings circling throughout my head and body. My personal struggles with anxiety and depression, brought me into confronting my own demons with the help of professionals, and through that process I realized that my talents and passions aligned with helping others work though their own internal struggles—my tiny, humble contribution to bringing that world peace, I so hope and wish to provide...
