Allanah Evans, LCSW Therapist
Life is about change and some changes are more difficult to navigate than others. When we are stressed, anxious or depressed, it is a sign that our lives are out of balance. My focus is on providing a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental and compassionate space for adults, couples, and families to share their experiences and to help navigate through some more difficult life changes [positive or negative] to create more balance in your life. I have at least 4 years of experience in working with a wide range of people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, family conflict, as well as symptoms of severe and persistent mental illness. I enjoy working with clients who are motivated to make changes to improve their lives, find purpose, and meaningful fulfillment. I would encourage you to create the skills for effective coping mechanisms for overall wellness. I can collaborate with psychiatrists, primary care physicians, social service agencies and will accept most health insurances. Deciding to engage in therapy and choosing a therapist can be overwhelming. Finding a therapist whose personality and style is a good fit with yours is important. More importantly, I see YOU as the expert in your life with unique values, needs and issues. I look forward to helping you to more effectively pursue your values and explore what keeps you from being the best you ever.

Nina Rapport, MHC Intern
My belief is that if we can change the way we think, we can change the way we feel. As a counselor, my primary goal of treatment is to provide you with an honest, non-judgemental, and exploratory environment that will facilitate you in understanding your current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and how they affect your daily life. The hope is that together, we work to address your most concerning issues and develop an inner-dialogue that promotes self-awareness, self-love, and self-actualizing growth in all facets of your life. I enjoy working closely with individuals, couples and families who understand that therapy is a journey, and who might be experiencing varying degrees of mental illness or just a major negative event in their life. I strongly believe that there is no such thing as an insignificant issue, so If there is an event, relationship, or consistant thought process that is hindering your quality of life in any way, let’s talk about and sift through it!

Shaneeka Conley, MHC-LP Therapist
As individuals we all go through stressful or even traumatic events in life that can lead to many life altering issues. These issues can manifest through Anxiety, Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), just to name a few. My goal and passion in life is to assist individuals with identifying their triggers and being able to identify effective skills and coping mechanisms to handle them appropriately.
I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as I find this to be a very effective method of therapy. CBT assists individuals in being able to identify negative or inaccurate thoughts and in turn be able to view challenging situations more clearly and handle them in a more appropriate and effective manner. As we are all individuals and the same treatment modality does not work for everyone, I am well versed in various therapeutic modalities to fit the individual needs of the clients that I work with.
I have years of experience working with individuals and families dealing with a variety of circumstances ranging from Depression and Anxiety to severe mental illness. I utilize a team work approach as I firmly believe that “you are the expert on yourself”. I’m excited to work with you on reaching your desired goal!
