 Emily Merlo, MSSA, LLMSW 

 Everyone wants to live a life with self-compassion and strong connections to those they care about most, but sometimes we   need some help along the way. Therapy can be intimidating, so my number one priority is to provide an environment of   safety and trust, where you can just be yourself. For me, the road to healing begins when we recognize that we are each our   own worst critic, and that it is okay to not be perfect all the time. I strongly believe that therapy is a collaborative   experience, and my main goal is for you to leave each session feeling uplifted, hopeful and one step closer to reaching your   personal goals.

  There is nothing more disheartening than when loss, sadness, anxiety and life difficulties are the first thing you think of in the morning, and the last thing you think of before going to bed. Together, we will work to keep these negative emotions from taking over, and replace them with feelings of security, connectedness and hope.

It is time to start feeling better, and I am here to be the support you need to take the first steps. It is time to start living your life, and enjoying the things you love again. Together we will work to accept the things you cannot change, and improve the things you can. Give my office a call and we can get started!

Loletha M. LeeLoletha M. Lee, MS, LLPC. 

I am a kind and considerate counselor who provides opportunities for growth and self-discovery in a safe and caring environment. I work with children and adolescents with developmental and behavioral issues; individuals with addictions, depressed mood, anxious thinking, emotional conflict, communication and low self-esteem; couples and families in conflict; and unresolved grief/loss. My treatment focus will help in changing negative beliefs, thoughts, images, and self-dialogue and helps initiate positive views, images, and self-dialogue that promotes reorganizing thought process, coping, and behaviors.

As a counselor who is a Child of God, I embrace self-awareness, acceptance, open-mindedness, fairness, competency, and honesty, without bias or stereotype. My counseling goals are to recognize that clients' belief about spirituality and their up-bringing are central to their worldviews. These worldviews influences their psycho-social development and functioning.

Sherrell Wilson, LPC, NCC. 

“You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside.” Are you allowing trauma, anxiety, and stress to disrupt your inside world? Trauma can change your view of your life and yourself. Stress and anxiety can shorten your lifespan. I am passionate about helping my clients, who include children, adults, families and couples, build upon their strengths so they can remove any barriers that keep them from feeling peaceful, complete, and safe.

I know that no single approach is right for every individual, so I utilize several different theoretical approaches to ensure that client’s need are being met. My educational background includes a MA in Professional Counseling from Central Michigan University. I have experience working with individuals with various unrest including PTSD, depression, Anxiety Disorders, Adjustment Disorder, ADHD, grief and loss, Bipolar Disorders, and abuse.
