Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, MA
"Specialized training and in-depth skill building are just some of the many services I provide for couples, families and individuals in crisis- and specifically for those struggling with communication and conflict resolution. I am known for helping many people learn proven ways to bring positive change in their lives, understand how to relate with others, and achieve greater success in their marriage, family and workplace through a respectful, fun, and disarming approach. Assertiveness training/education is a passion of mine and I believe many problems in life are caused by a lack of assertiveness- resulting in passive aggressive behavior."
"Most clients would describe my practice style as honest, optimistic and no-nonsense. As a cognitive behavioral therapist, I work predominantly within a short-term therapy format. Another way of describing this is to say that I work with clients to change their thinking and behavior in problem situations."
"Life is a journey full of twists and turns. Some are joyful, others bring pain and disruption. My wish for every person, couple and family that walk into my office is to find HOPE. In the midst of the trials of life we can feel lost, unloved, lonely and defeated. Yet, if there is hope, there is a way-- a direction. I have a passion for helping each person to find hope through their circumstances, to gain strength to face a new day, and to live a healthier life."
"Healing begins with the opportunity to give voice to one's inner thoughts and concerns in a safe and non-judgmental environment. This is the foundation for my approach to therapy as a licensed professional counselor. By giving my clients time, space, and gentle guidance to work through their concerns and struggles, I strive to bring to the relationship a deeper understanding of your sense of self and your hopes for change or growth in your future."
Limited Licensed Psychologist, MA, CIRT
"An ideal client is someone who is motivated to look deeply at sources of strengths and limitation. They understand that change takes place in relationship and that a therapeutic relationship can support and challenge such change. This client is aware that lasting change takes work and time."
"My goal as a therapist is to provide my clients with a safe, supportive environment, to explore their current situation, address areas of concern, and acquire a new sense of hope, health, and happiness. I believe each client's experience is unique and I work collaboratively to develop realistic goals that achieve change. My expertise is in the areas of children and adolescents, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and couples. Further, I also enjoy working with life transitions and parenting issues. I greatly appreciate my clients giving me the opportunity to walk with them on their journey of healing and growth."
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LMSW, CAADC, CCS
"Pain comes in many forms but it doesn't need to define you. It takes courage to fight alone but it takes even more courage to reach out for help. I come from a culture that leaves no one behind and I won't give up on you, don't you either! Together we will work to create a specific plan to navigate your unique situation."
"As featured monthly on WZZM13, Ms. Remi Spicer is a local Relationship Expert working with both individuals and couples. "I have never met a client whose crisis, pain, anger, or presenting problem didn't make sense....after listening. Really listening, to their story. And, I have helped people with many types of problems over the last 15 years. Do all the stories blend together after so many years? No, because despite similarities, every person has their own unique experience to share, learn from, and change, despite all the fears around what's next. But together, we can do it.""
"I love working with a client earnestly seeking life change. We pursue self reflection and cognitive restructuring.while probing the roots of a client's faith. I have also found that my life experience, which includes a 32-year marriage and the raising of 3 young adults now heading out into the world, provides a rich source of good counsel. My style is characterized by a personal approach that is warm and supportive with a holistic focus and my sincere hope for all my clients is a personal awareness that brings the emotional and mental stability that leads to positive behaviors."
"I welcome the opportunity to discuss any goals or changes you would like to bring about in your life. Goals that are on hold because you have become stuck and being stuck is what is keeping you from living your best life, keeping you from waking up each morning excited about what each new day will bring into your life. Let me help you to take that first step to living your best life ever!"

"I consider it a great privilege and honor to be able to journey alongside my clients. I believe my role as a counselor is to provide a place where people do not feel judged and can openly share their story with vulnerability while helping to guide them on a path toward wholeness. I think Dan Allender says it best when he says, "so take seriously the story that God has given you to live. It's time to read your own life, because your story is the one that could set us all ablaze.""

"I began my career working in relational ministry with teens. I quickly learned about building trust and what an honor it is to walk alongside clients in both struggle and joy. I believe counseling is one of the best choices we can make for ourselves. It is often difficult to seek help and it takes courage to take care of our own needs. I will do my best to meet you where you are, to listen and provide support and perhaps a new perspective. Counseling allows us to be kinder to ourselves, learn new skills and lead richer lives."
"We view the counseling process as a relationship that holds up a mirror for you, seeks out your heart, requires honesty and authenticity and invites you to more. It's a journey together to explore your heart, your relationships and the stories of your life."
"I have over 25 years of experience as a therapist. My approach to helping others focuses upon helping individuals understand their feelings, emotions, and motivations, those they are aware of and those they are not. Therapy is essentially an equal and trusting relationship which enables the client to implement the changes they desire for themselves, only the client is responsible for deciding the ultimate direction or course of change you may take. I look forward to the opportunity to help you grow and achieve your fullest potential as a human being and to achieve a much better quality of life."
"My passion for helping others is strong and growing. Emotional trauma comes in many shapes and forms, past or present and causes life challenges. Accepting, enduring changes and healing from trauma is challenging, until trauma is understood. I will help you understand your traumatic experience and emotional trauma. With empathy, respect and appropriate treatment intervention, I will encourage you along the way. We will focus on your strengths and self-determination through motivational interviewing and client-centered therapy. I will assist you to meet your goals, using healthy skills and tools to overcome your trauma and support your healing and restoration."
"I work with people to find balance, reduce stress, feel stronger, more confident and centered. Together, we will work to identify patterns of thinking and behaving that are no longer useful, and may be getting in the way of the changes you want to make. With support, in a confidential setting, you can begin to improve your relationship with yourself, and with others. I work with couples in a similar way, identifying and changing patterns of thinking, communicating and relating so that you can improve communication, get more support, and feel more connected."
