I am grateful and humble to be able to provide counseling and mediation services in my community.  I have been working as a counselor for over 20years and focus my work to help survivors of abuse, families navigating a divorce/co-parenting issues, and those looking to find direction in their life.   In addition to my experience and training, I believe my down to earth personality will put you at ease.

It is through this therapeutic process that effective growth occurs.   When not at work, I spend my time with my family and having fun participating in my children's lives.  I am a big fan of morning tea, camp fires, being active and adventures.

Suzanne Mullins, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Sometimes we all need someone to listen to us as we attempt to make sense of the world. And the past few years have given us a lot of craziness to make sense of! I can help you to untangle your thoughts and feelings and find a sense of peace with the hand you have been dealt. Together, I can guide you to pick up the pieces and rebuild with greater joy and quality of life.

I use an eclectic approach to meet my clients where they are and introduce tools I feel will be useful for that individual. Additionally, for the past 8 years I have specialized in treating clients with chronic illness as well as their caretakers.

Kaylle Ramseier, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

 

Over the last ten years, I have had the privilege of assisting individuals like you to successfully navigate the complexities of life, offering support through challenges such as trauma, adoptions, family conflict, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, substance abuse, and many others.

Carl Rogers, a pioneer in counseling, once stated, "One of the most satisfying experiences I know is just to fully appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset." This sentiment encapsulated my philosophy as a counselor. I strive to fully appreciate and understand you just as you are with awe, respect, and a recognition of the unique essence that makes your journey special. 

My approach to counseling is rooted in a deep curiosity about the unique narratives that shape each individual's experiences. I believe this curiosity, coupled with genuine connection, will be the cornerstone of your therapeutic process and growth.

I look forward to meeting you, learning from you, and exploring the paths of growth, resilience, and self-discovery you will take. Thank you in advance for entrusting me with your stories, and 

here's to the next chapter of our shared exploration of what makes your journey special.
