Andrew Holmgren family care center
Andrew Holmgren, LPC-MHSP

I approach counseling from a collaborative perspective, in which you, the client, and I work together to identify ways to address your concerns and meet your therapeutic goals. In session, I take an interpersonal stance where we explore the ways that your relationships with others can impact the concerns that brought you to therapy as well as how these concerns might impact your current relationships. I firmly believe that each client has the ability to accomplish their goals when they can engage authentically in a nonjudgmental therapeutic space. 

Katherine Dinwiddie, D.O.

As a double board-certified psychiatrist in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry, I specialize in the evaluation and management of various mental health conditions and symptoms across the lifespan. I promote a compassionate and nonjudgmental treatment environment where you feel comfortable sharing concerns and asking questions. My goal is to help you build self-resiliency by way of psychoeducation, therapy, and/or medications to forge a path through your current challenges.

Lee Moore
Lee Moore, LCSW

Worry happens in your mind, stress happens in your body, and anxiety happens in your mind and your body. In small doses, worry, stress and anxiety can be positive forces in our lives. But most of us are too worried, too stressed and too anxious. How do we manage this worry, stress and anxiety in a healthy manner? My strength is building rapport, empathy and holding space for my clients by listening and utilizing curiosity. Focusing on both the physical sensations in your body and sharing life challenges is a comprehensive approach to therapy. I utilize EMDR, narrative therapy, emotional freedom, somatic exercises, technique(tapping), DBT and CBT.

“You are a light; You are the light! Never let anyone – any person or any force – dampen, dim, or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates.” – John Lewis

Candice Beatty family care center
Candice Beatty, LPC-MHSP

Challenges and struggles in life are a human experience. Sometimes navigating these events is confusing and overwhelming. It is okay to not have all the answers. Asking for help and guidance is a form of self-care that you deserve. Counseling offers a safe place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, your past and hopes for the future. Along the way, finding insight, accessing your skills and inner strength will give you the hope and motivation to continue on your journey. “Growth is never by mere chance. It is the result of forces working together.” James Cash Penney. I have over 20 years of counseling experience and I enjoy working with those age 16 and up.
