THERAPISTS

DR. KEN BATEMAN

Ed.D., LMFT-S, LPC-S

As a Marriage and Family therapist I have training in the dynamics of couple and family relationships. Counseling isn’t just listening, it’s teaching tools and offering new methods for communication, stress management and solving problems.



KERI RIGGS

M.A., LPC-S

My counseling style is collaborative, supportive, practical and strengths-based. With over 20 years’ experience in private practice, community mental health and psychiatric hospital programs, clients benefit from my maturity and breadth of knowledge.



FRANK GEIS

M.A., LPC, LMFT, Neurotherapist

Life is relational and in being so; it has challenges. I am a relational therapist who assist in finding solutions rather than merely “dancing around” the issues. I work with marriages, couples, individuals and adolescents. I incorporate Neurofeedback in dealing with trauma, stress, anxiety, anger, and cognitive issues.



ROBIN POWELL

LCSW-S, CT

I am a specialist in grief counseling and am a Certified Thanatologist through the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC). Many things come under the heading of grief, including divorce, caregiver stress, coping with elderly parents, and job loss.



JOE SHAW

MA, LPC-S, NCC

I consider it a privilege to work with individuals, couples, and groups. I have worked in various settings including hospice, drug and alcohol rehab with dual diagnosis patients, community counseling center, and in private practice.



I specialize in trauma resolution and am Certified in EMDR therapy. Trauma includes many types of distressing life events. EMDR helps people heal from the emotional distress that can result from experiencing trauma. I work with adults and couples and offer both weekday and weekend appointments.

I’m a counselor who specializes in helping men and women facing “now what?” Now what is rooted in what did or didn’t happen, presently expressed in what is or isn’t happening!



SUMMER HAASE

JAMIE YOO

M.A., LPC Intern

Supervised by Lisa T. Galliano

M.S., LPC-S

Life is full of surprises and obstacles, but everyone has the capacity to find meaning and hope in their own lives. I can help my clients explore their emotions, thoughts, and core beliefs so that they can learn to adapt to a variety of life challenges and be comfortable with who they are.



BRIDGET JOWID

M.S., LPC Intern

Supervised by Dr. Ken Bateman

Ed.D., LMFT-S, LPC-S

Integrity means upholding the truth that lies within each of us.  Counseling helps discover that truth.  I believe becoming more aware reveals options from which an individual can choose the healthiest opportunities.  When we uphold the truth that lies within us, amazing things can happen.
