As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor for over 15 years, I am a highly trained and experienced therapist who has a thorough understanding of the complex needs and challenges that our children face today. I utilize a multi-modal approach that is tailored to fit the needs of each family served.
Life can be highly complex, with obstacles overwhelming the healthiest of minds. The decision to seek counseling is often not an easy one. Successful therapy is more than the absence of symptoms or issues, it is a life enriched with increased self-awareness/compassion/empowerment. I will help you recognize and build upon your strengths, challenging restrictive/limiting beliefs/behaviors, and grow toward wholeness, confidence, and joy. Healing happens in relationships when there's true and honest connections with others, but more importantly within oneself. Finding and using your "inner voice" is often the key needed to begin meaningful change.
I have developed a safe place with programs that promote healing and hope. For more than 25 years these programs have helped with Marriage, Addiction, Abuse, Work related issues and have helped people to identify their needs and work towards having those needs met. I welcome the opportunity to help you and/or your family. If you are not interested in Faith based Counseling please let us know, and we can help you.

Drs. Kinderman and Yanek have over 30 years of combined experience working with children, adolescents and adults. We tailor the therapeutic experience to meet the specific needs of our clients. Providing meaningful dialogue, adventure, and fun in a safe, "outside the box" setting is our way of redefining therapy. We utilize evidence-based therapeutic techniques found in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy/Mindfulness, and Wilderness Therapy with the goal of empowering individuals to move outside of their comfort zones and tap into their full potential.
When I think of my work as a therapist, what lifts my spirit is the enormous potential of people for living a full life; a potential they are often unaware of. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Therapy helps to identify them and develop the tools to improve their lives. The goals: enhanced self-esteem, reduced tension, more expressiveness....a fuller life. Whether I work with the child, adolescent, adult, individual, couple or family, I find the work inspiring.
"Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it"- This is one of my favorite quotes from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day off because it is so true. Things happen to us throughout our lifetime that make us feel stuck, worthless, guilty, shamed, and like we are never enough. These ideas about ourselves dictate the way we learn, how we do in school and work, and how we love and connect to others. When someone has experienced trauma, these thoughts and feelings can be even more extreme which can cause significant distress. Growth and Empowerment is accepting new clients!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker dedicated to providing the most effective treatment approaches to help my clients achieve their life goals and be the best that they can be. Over the past twenty years, I have been helping children, teens and adults face and overcome problems that may prevent them from reaching their fullest potential. These difficulties may include ADHD, depression, anxiety, trauma or adjustment problems related to life events such as a death or divorce. I will help you determine what may be underlying the problem and develop an effective treatment plan to address the issues and achieve your goals.
I specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and trauma, including individuals going through relationship issues and adults experiencing the impact of childhood abuse. I believe therapy is a collaborative process and I will work with you to respectfully identify your needs and goals through a supportive and personalized approach.
I truly admire the courage it takes to seek help, and I have had the privilege to see the growth and progress that come from doing so. Deciding to seek therapy can be an overwhelming task and it is so important to find a therapist you feel connected with. I strive to provide my clients with a comfortable and non-judgmental space where they are able to explore what brought them to therapy. I approach my practice with warmth, empathy, and a bit of humor as I support my clients in navigating their journey.
D&M Counseling is comprised of two LCSW clinicians who co-facilitate therapeutic groups with a social skill focus. Our objective is to provide children and adolescents with a safe and fun learning environment to develop appropriate and more effective social skills. Individuals are given the tools needed to better understand themselves and their environment. As the clients' confidence and skills improve children are able to meet the social demands placed upon them. Co-facilitating allows the group process to continue while necessary redirection is provided individually and discreetly. Social workers also offer appropriate role modeling during the group session.
