Candice Leimkuhler Family Care Center
Candice Leimkuhler, MS, LPC - Clinic Director

If you are researching psychotherapy or individual providers, that is a strong indication that your inner knowing has an awareness of the golden opportunity knocking at your door. Making the decision to start a therapeutic journey, whether brief in nature or more extended, is a courageous one. It means you are willing. Willing to talk, explore, challenge, learn, grow, change, and believe in yourself. As the saying goes, a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, and that one step will always be the step you take in the present moment.

Sahar Sawaged Family Care Center
Sahar Sawaged, LPC

In the journey of life, we experience valleys, mountain tops, and everything in between. We often have difficulty expressing and understanding our personal struggles. Therapy is a place to hold space for the unknown of your inner experiences and to provide support and guidance in the healing process. I have worked with severe trauma, anxiety, depression, suicide, personality disorders, etc. With my training in CBT and Somatic Processing, my goal for each client is to foster hope, provide an underlying understanding of their experiences in the mind and body, and challenge negative self-talk.

Helping people, and being there for them is where all of my professional and personal drive comes from. Family Care Center has given me the opportunity, and the privilege to walk alongside and be there for you or your loved one, and I am grateful for that.

Lisa Laws Family Care Center
Lisa Laws, LCSW

I see therapy as a chance to come alongside you and meet you right where you are to help you take the next step on your healing journey. Therapy is a collaborative process, so I love to check in often to make sure you feel like you are getting the support and help you need to reach your goals. I see it as an honor and privilege to hear more of your story and be able to enter into the things that can be harder to talk about. Reaching out to set up that first appointment can be the hardest, but know that you are brave, you matter and your story matters.

As an experienced clinical psychologist, I find that a tailored goal-oriented focus, breaking problems into easily achievable small steps and using tools from many approaches can help clients get unstuck and move forward.

Also, empathy and collaboration are key to my approach to working with clients. I work with people from all
backgrounds and am LGBTQI-friendly.

Carol Oakleaf Family Care Center
Carol Oakleaf, PA

I have been a family practice PA for over 27 years. I have come to realize that emotional health is just as important as physical health. 

You are not your circumstances, or what has happened to you. What is important is how you respond to what has happened in your life. I hope to help people become the best versions of themselves, and find joy in their lives.

managing depression and anxiety, improving relationships and adjusting to life circumstances.

Emily Wallen Family Care Center
Emily Wallen, LPC

Choosing to seek therapy requires courage. While there is no overnight fix, magic wand, or “happiness” pill,
working confidentially and closely with a therapist can facilitate remarkable improvements in your well-being. It can reduce distressing symptoms (along with medication, if needed) and even raise your typical baseline of functioning and the quality of your relationships. This is your journey and I am here to provide guidance and support along the way.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I am trained and experienced in working with Children, Adolescents, Adults, Families, and Couples.

My therapeutic approach is that we are a team working together to find the best way to heal you. I believe that you are the expert on your life, and I
can offer helpful perspectives and tools for you to feel more confident in living the life that you want to live.
