Jeanie Felty, LPC

Life can be challenging. Unexpected and even expected life changes can push anyone off balance. Being off balance can lead to problems in our family, school, occupational, social, personal, and spiritual functioning. Whether a problem comes from our environment or from within, the support of a mental health professional may be helpful in restoring that much desired balance.

My name is Jeanie Felty and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in psychology at Frostburg State University and completed my Master of Arts in professional counseling with Liberty University.

I have formal training in Christian Counseling and Crisis Response & Trauma. I am also a certified Adoption Competent Counselor and I am pursuing certification in Perinatal Mental Health. I have worked in outpatient community mental health centers, partial hospitalization/intensive outpatient mental health programs, and private practice settings. I typically use an eclectic approach to counseling including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, narrative therapy, family-systems therapy, and person-centered therapy. I respect every client’s unique needs and goals as the foundation of a successful counseling experience.

I often work with children, adolescents, young adults, and adults in the areas of:

  • General Adjustment and Stress-related Disorders
  • Post-Partum Disorders
  • Foster and Adoption Issues
  • Grief and Loss Issues
  • Trauma and Abuse Issues
  • Life Changes and Occupational Issues

Kathleen Van Allen, LPC

I have been working in various mental health settings over the past 4 years with experience working as a crisis counselor, in-home counselor,  school-based services, and providing outpatient counseling within a community service board organization. My integrative, holistic, and humanistic approach assists me with a range of mental health diagnoses, symptoms and specialties my clients may experience. I have experience working with young children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples. I enjoy using psychoeducational activities, worksheets, visual aids, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and person centered activities to assist clients with finding their path in life, reaching self-actualization, identifying goals/objectives, reducing negative symptoms, and improving overall functioning in life. Daily, I strive to teach my clients skills to assist with improving thinking patterns, communication skills, motivation, mindfulness skills, interpersonal effectiveness, and problem solving skills. I want my clients to feel supported, safe, and encouraged to reach their highest potentials in life by finding personal growth through counseling services.  Starting counseling can be a daunting journey but having an experienced counselor there every step of the way makes it that much easier to achieve your goals in life. I look forward to walking this journey with each and every one of my clients!

Laura Guise, LCSW

I am a passionate, energetic, and dedicated Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a love for the art of engagement in the work of therapy with individuals, families, and groups. I have experience working with adults, families, children, adolescents, and providing group based clinical interventions.

My areas of clinical focus are: individuals with substance abuse issues; serious mental illness diagnoses; family and role related issues; children and adolescents displaying behavioral difficulties; behavioral modification/interventions; trauma survivors, with a special focus in working with victims of human trafficking; and issues specific to both women and adolescent girls.  

My practice is guided by the biopsychosocial model and an awareness of the interconnected relationship of brain-based responses to psychological functioning or dysfunction with a special concentration on the effects of trauma both in childhood and adulthood related to mental health issues.  I have a particular interest in providing therapeutic interventions that reflect a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) informed practice with the intention of increasing my training in this particular modality and a goal of being fully trained to provide DBT adherent clinical services. 

Previously, I have provided clinical services in multiple settings  to include those such as a residential program, the acute psychiatric care setting, a partial hospitalization program, emergency services with a local Community Service Board, and an adolescent crisis shelter.

My strengths as a clinician and effectiveness as a therapist are founded on an ability to see every clinical interaction as an opportunity to establish and strengthen the therapeutic relationship;  the philosophy that accurate and through assessment/diagnosis is essential for understanding; high ethical standards; an attitude that seeks out and values collaboration; my belief in the ability for each person to find their  recovery no matter the circumstance; and a love for providing therapeutic clinical services.
