About Justin

Seeking help is the first step. If you have experienced traumatic events in the distant past or more recently, or if you have feelings of sadness, depression or anxiety, or are in a difficult time in your life and are ready for a time of growth, reaching out is the first step in healing. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal and to grow. Every individual, couple, and family are different and I customize my therapeutic plan for your individual needs.

I have an extensive background as a trauma-informed clinician, and am trained in Reality Therapy, CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, the Gottman Method for couples, among other treatment modalities. My specialty is facilitating recovery for those suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, and individuals going through life transitions.

Growth and positive outcomes can only begin when you reach out.

About Angelena

When facing challenges and struggles, you do not need to feel alone; it can be comforting to have someone by your side who is nonjudgmental, understanding, and compassionate. Everyone’s journey is unique and valued and I believe we all deserve genuine and empathetic understanding along with personalized care.

 

I specialize in collaborative, person-centered, CBT, and strength-based approaches to therapy. I usually throw a little humor in there too. I have worked with at-risk youth and individuals of all ages seeking relief from depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, and high-risk sexual behaviors.

 

It takes strength to seek help and I am dedicated to working with you to develop strategies that allow you to reach your goals and cultivate positive change. Everyone’s journey is unique and valued.

About Barry

Taking the first step can often be the most difficult. However, if you are ready to take those steps, I will walk with you.

We all face challenges in relationships, parenting, work, and other areas of life. Maybe you are just ready to grow emotionally or take your life in a new direction. It is my belief that we are all capable of becoming comfortable with who we are and have the potential to change who we are.

I utilize a person-centered approach that is unique to the individual, couple or family. With a focus on Family Systems, Reality Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy, & a background in Trauma Informed Care, Addictions, & Marriage, Family & Adolescent Counseling, I’ve found an eclectic means to easily relate with others & address their individual needs. 

Barry is taking clients now to start May 4, 2022. You can email him directly at dwynvassar@yahoo.com to schedule your first session.
