Kathleen Smerko, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Kathleen Smerko earned her Masters Degree and then a post Masters Nurse Practitioner Certification. Her interest in Mental Health treatment goes back to Nursing school. Kathleen strives to make Mental Health treatment an equal priority in the lives of her clients. Clients who are struggling with issues beyond the reach of therapy alone are her specialty. Combining symptom management and supportive therapy are the means to returning clients to their best selves.

Kathleen uses a bio-psycho-social-sexual-spiritual approach to care. All elements of a person's being are an integral approach to wellness.Nursing has always been holistic in nature and she brings that approach to treatment.

Unmanaged symptoms often get in the way of therapy. Symptoms are the body's way of responding to issues not yet managed. Restoring the chemical balance in the brain can help therapy be more effective.

Kimberly Reuter, LPC

Philosophy of Care

As a Licensed Professional Counselor my professional orientation has been based on the Cognitive Behavioral model however, I believe that there is not a “one size fits all” approach to therapy. With over 15 years’ experience providing behavioral management and mental health services, I utilize integrative therapy techniques in order to meet the individualized treatment needs of each person.  I work with adults, couples, and adolescents and have extensive experience working with mental health and performance related issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, grief or loss, personal growth/improvement, developmental/transitional concerns, and military family transitions. Through my educational pursuits and my personal life experiences, I have gained a deep understanding of the challenges that life events can unexpectedly throw at us. These circumstances can throw us off balance in a way that disrupts our lives. The decision to seek counseling can be a very sensitive one that usually occurs at a delicate time. Choosing the “right” therapist for yourself or your child involves the willingness to invest and commit to the process. My approach is strength based, non- judgmental, and genuine. I will continue to strive assisting those with navigating through life’s challenges.
