Jennifer Edwards, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

If prior abuse, relationship problems, or sexual issues are affecting your life and you are ready for a change, you've found the right place. I offer intensive, personalized counseling for those who are struggling with issues arising from sexual abuse, internet/porn addiction, infidelity, and sexual compulsivity. If what you have been doing to try to manage the situation is no longer working, let me help lead you on the path to a happier life and healthier relationships.

I have over 24 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and groups. My specialties include survivors of sexual and emotional trauma, depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction/issues, medical issues, men’s issues, and relationship issues.

My goal is to encourage my clients toward a stronger sense of self. I do this by motivating clients to practice self-care, ultimately leading healthier and happier daily lives. In these unique and challenging times, I especially want to do my part in supporting and uplifting our community, one person at a time.

Joane Davis, LPC-S

Philosophy of Care

My personal philosophy of counseling begins and ends with grace and a willingness to enter into an individual's experience alongside them. I entered this field because I feel that I have an authentic listening heart that desires to see people live as whole, healthy individuals.

I believe in holistic healing that takes into consideration the whole person - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. I believe that counseling is a pathway for growth and healing. It is an opportunity for the client to explore his or her own thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. By building a healthy therapeutic relationship, the therapist can guide the client in discovering more about themselves and their patterns of behavior. It also provides a setting that encourages the client in establishing new, healthy patterns of behavior.

As a counselor, I desire to facilitate the process of a client solving their own problems while also demonstrating a genuine concern and compassion for their dilemmas. Ultimately, I would strive to encourage the client to draw their own conclusions and choose the direction they want to take in resolving their issues. Together, the client and the therapist can then set goals in order to achieve the desired outcome.

Overall, my philosophy as a therapist is to treat each person as a unique individual, worthy of unconditional acceptance, regardless of his or her personal circumstances or struggles. It is my desire to come alongside, challenge, and encourage my clients to find healing emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
