Navigating these challenging times can often feel impossible. You’re not alone! Whether you are grieving the loss of a dear friend or loved one, coping with changes in relationships and routines, facing a chronic illness that is making it hard to even get out of bed some days, or you just feel stuck, overwhelmed, and don’t see a way through your circumstances, I’m here to help! Together, we can develop tools that will prove to be a steady anchor, allowing you to weather life’s future storms.
I pride myself on helping you find your authentic self. I want to assist you in sorting through years of conditioned beliefs and habits that no longer serve you and cause distressful emotions. I want to be able to guide you in sorting through anxieties, perceptions, and vulnerabilities that lead you away from the self you envision. I want to provide you with skills and techniques that help you obtain mental well-being.
I believe that a good therapist doesn't "fix" you, because no one really needs "fixing." My goal is to create a supportive environment to help you express yourself and learn the skills necessary to handle whatever life might throw your way. Whether you're experiencing depression, anxiety, or are just going through a rough time, there are a variety of strategies we can use to get you back to enjoying life. In my sessions, I like to utilize cognitive behavioral techniques to help you feel more confident in your ability to handle life's stressors.
I welcome people from all backgrounds into my therapy practice. The tools, techniques, and interventions I use depend on who you are, your beliefs, goals, and presenting issues. Therapy is not a one size fits all endeavor, and looks different for everyone based on a variety of factors. The one thing that is true for everyone entering therapy with me is that I guarantee you will feel safe, unconditionally welcomed, and never judged.
What isn't talked about is repeated...In so many ways. We get stuck,whether this be specific behaviors, relationships, symptoms of anxiety or depression or substance abuse. Even, when we arrive at the awareness that we want to feel or be different. Our family experience and our experiences in our increasingly complex world, shape, without our permission, how we think and feel. Understanding the meaning we made of our experiences and the thinking and feeling habits that developed, can begin to bring relief and reduce or eliminate the symptoms that motivated us to seek help.
My life's passions include honest self-examination and personal betterment, and I am blessed to be able to exercise these passions every day when I work with my clients. The decision to seek counseling is often difficult as it involves being vulnerable and confronting sensitive issues. I pride myself in my natural ability to make my clients feel comfortable discussing such issues by providing a warm and nonjudgemental counseling environment. I focus on treating individuals with all levels of depression and anxiety, as well as relationship concerns, though I am experienced in treating a wide range of presenting issues.
I approach each patient by helping guide them through their personal therapy journey and identify which areas they can change for the better. I use a combination of positive pillars philosophy and neuro-linguistic style of counseling for a flexible interaction with clients.
These are difficult times! If you or a loved one is struggling, therapy can help.

You'll find my style to be quite grounded, warm, and respectful.
Everyone has experienced some sort of trauma in their life. Sometimes this trauma can be too much for us. We might say to ourselves, 'just get over it', but it's not that easy. Let me guide you through proven strategies for recovering from trauma, adversity, and emotional strain. I treat adults who are trying to recover from a variety of emotional ordeals. Together we can restore your resiliency to the point where you feel confident enough to overcome life's challenges.

Maybe you just need a safe place and another perspective to help you figure out what changes you want to make-that's ok, too! We move at your pace.

I have a deep belief that life should be enjoyed. There are many things that can create limits in life, and whether it is our own fault, or someone else's, these limits do not have to keep us from enjoying life. I have extensive work with people who have struggled with drug and alcohol addictions, sexual addictions, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma, as well as parenting and adoption concerns. I have seen clients achieve balance in life, greater self-awareness, and overcome ways of thinking and behavior that have limited life's enjoyment and success.
I am a licensed professional counselor who can help you make permanent, positive changes in your life. I offer compassion and expertise dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, relationship problems, anger, mood swings, or simply processing emotional life struggles of any kind. You will find a safe, non-judgmental environment to explore your challenges with a fresh perspective. My style is supportive and flexible, focusing on strengths and the relationship among thoughts, feelings and behaviors to guide healing and change.
People can experience dark days at times, where the future feels uncertain, and everyday routines become difficult. Perhaps you feel stuck in what seems like an endless cycle of anxiety or depression, need to experience healing from past hurts or traumas, or are experiencing a painful life transition. Many people have insight into their problems, but struggle to find the ability to get “unstuck.” My desire is to help you find a new path, break down old habits, and discover new tools to cope. I have worked in the field of counseling for over fifteen years, helping people of various ages and backgrounds.
It is easy to feel stuck. It is easy to believe you can't feel better. Let me show you a different way. My name is Malinda Myers. I believe that mental health is health, and just like we get physical injuries, we can get mental ones as well. I use attachment theory, embodiment and somatic healing as some of the ways to help you heal. I draw on Bessel van der Kolk, Gabor Mate and Stephen Porges for much of my inspiration and guidance in sessions.
If you're taking the time to read this, congratulations! You've already accomplished two goals: You're not happy with how your life is and you're deciding to do something about it. You’ve taken the initial steps. You may have doubts: “How can just talking to someone change my life? I’ll still have the same problems.” The answer? Talking to someone can make all the difference in the world. While you may have the same life circumstances, you’ll be seeing them in a whole new way, with new ways of working through problems. There’s a saying that goes, “Joys shared are joys doubled; sorrows shared are sorrows halved.” It’s true.
My practice helps Adult Clients (21 and over) better navigate life stresses, relieve emotional suffering, and become more resilient. We work in close partnership to best meet or exceed your goals. My focus includes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and/or other approaches as necessary. I combine my clinical experience, deep listening skills, and evidence-based approaches best suited to your needs and issues. What I offer is frequently a “good fit” for someone seeking lasting positive changes and personal growth.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working with school aged youth and adults. My passion is working with children and adolescents with a specific focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques. I have seen this method work time and time again for those struggling with anxiety, depression, chronic stress, somatic disorders, familial conflict, and so much more. CBT can be applied in many situations and its effects are more profound when it can include a caregiver or family member. Of course, for younger children (7 and younger), methods will vary and likely include the caregiver.
Are you looking to find more meaning and purpose in your life? Are you struggling with problems you don't quite understand? Do you want to really live your life instead of just getting by? Are you longing for a stronger connection to others? Would you like to understand and experience your feelings in a way that frees you to become the person you were meant to be? These are questions we can explore together to help you reach your fullest potential.
