Crystal Hiner , MA, LPCCS/LICDC-EMDR cERTIFIED

Taking the first step towards contacting a therapist can be intimidating! As we go through life’s ups and downs things happen in our lives that require us to examine which path we want to take. Finding someone to provide support, encouragement, and compassion can enhance life’s journey. What makes the therapeutic relationship so special is having a person to share your thoughts and feelings without judgement. I am committed to making this process easier for you by creating an environment of trust, respect and support so you can learn to cope with what you are currently dealing with in your life.

My professional experience includes working with a variety of individuals dealing with many of life’s struggles including: trauma,depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug addiction, families dealing with addicted loved ones, domestic violence, grief and loss.

I focus on the individual I am treating and their specific needs, but I tend to use EMDR therapuetic techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused , and motivational interviewing therapy to help clients achieve their goals.

Ryan Miller, MA, LPCCS/LICDC

I would invite you to consider the wonderful, unharnessed potential that dwells inside of you. I can teach you how to explore and tap into that, so that eventually I’m obsolete. That’s the task that any ethical therapist sets out to do. Through a trusting, open and thoughtful therapeutic relationship, we can address any number of concerns. Sometimes, it’s just nice to have a nonjudgmental, genuine space to explore your fears, hopes, greatest struggles, and greatest aspirations.

I have 8 years of experience treating chemical dependency and other addictive disorders (I.e., gambling, gaming addiction, sex addiction, etc.) as well as a myriad of family concerns. I’m well versed in treating anxiety, depression, anger, and phase of life issues. I’m trauma-informed and believe in always considering its impact.

At my practice, I want you to look forward to doing the immensely rewarding and explorative work that is therapy. I have a relaxed, calm and humanistic style that I hope you will find to be approachable and conscientious.

 

Katie Humble, MA, LPCC

I believe in advocating for client growth by collaborating with clients to achieve their personal goals. I have a passion for helping clients decide how to best cope with their concerns themselves by self exploration and learning new skills through a holistic approach.
My goal is to provide a confidential, safe and supportive environment for my clients in which they feel empowered to achieve self exploration and overcome personal struggles.I am a LPCC and have 5 years of specializing in substance abuse. I also have experience in treating depression, anxiety, grief, codependency, self-esteem, trauma and ADHD. I provide treatment through an eclectic approach, specifically focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
I’m well suited for working with a variety of mental health and addiction concerns; however, women seeking self-empowerment, autonomy, assertiveness, and want to strengthen self-esteem tend to fit particularly well with my therapeutic style.

 

Paula Sanford, MA, LPCC-S

Two of my all-time favorite movies are The Wizard of Oz and Wonder Woman. Each film follows characters on perilous journeys heading toward uncertain fates. Dorothy and her companions take on a wicked witch while seeking courage, knowledge, love, and the safety and security of home. They ultimately learn that what they sought was a part of them all along.
In Wonder Woman, Diana must face unimaginable destruction, loss, and sorrow guided only by her mission to do what is right and to help others. Her journey unlocks in her a strength and power she did not know she possessed. I consider it an honor and a privilege to join you on your journey and I seek to help you to unlock YOUR strengths and power as you navigate the past, present, and future!

I hold a special place in my heart for adolescents, teenagers, and young adults, with whom I have worked with for the last 25 years of my life in some capacity or another.

Ahna Cattarin, MA, LPCCS/LCDCIII

For me, counseling is about perspectives and connections.  I seek to provide a trusting, nonjudgmental and respectful environment where you can explore whatever you are struggling with, the different perspectives involved, and how they impact your connections with others and yourself.  Helping you to find your strengths and learn the skills to balance your life situations with adjustability is my goal.  

 

I have been counseling professionally for over 25 years.  I am experienced  treating substance use disorders, behavioral addictions, and family members of those with an addiction.  I also treat depression, anxiety, trauma and PTSD, grief and loss, codependency, and self-esteem issues.  My style is eclectic, but I tend to use motivational interviewing, person-centered, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. 

 

My counseling style is like my profile picture (with a few more hairs in place).  I am low-key, calm and relaxed.  I consider it an honor to be involved in the self exploration of another and to help them find their path.  

Abby Arner, MA, LPC

Life can be unpredictable, exciting, messy, beautiful, overwhelming, dull, and everything else in between. My grandmother would always tell me that “no one was born with an instruction manual for how to be a human,” and I couldn’t agree more.
To me, counseling is the beautiful process of becoming your best self through the therapeutic relationship. My goal is to stand beside you as your own unique counseling journey unfolds. I will empower you along the way
with evidence-based interventions in a warm, empathic, respectful, non-judgmental, and open-minded environment.
I am a licensed professional counselor who works with children, adolescents, and adults providing individual, couple, and family counseling. I am skilled in working with children and adolescents in hospital, office, and school-based settings.
I utilize treatment approaches that are uniquely tailored to each client. My approach to counseling is client-centered and multiculturally aware. I have strong experience in person-centered counseling, crisis counseling, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, feminist therapy, strengths-based approach, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
My specialty interests include anxiety, depression, girls’ and women’s issues, phase of life changes, LGBTQ+ issues, trauma, career development, school issues, relationship issues and communication issues, grief and loss, perfectionism, and family conflict.
I look forward to joining you on your counseling journey!

HANNAH BOOTH, MA, LPC

Welcome to Compass Counseling, LLC–I am so glad you are here! My name is Hannah Booth and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My clinical interests include: eating disorders, depression and anxiety, family systems, and life adjustments. However, my passion to help people in need is not limited to these areas. I believe the most important aspect of any type of therapy, is the therapeutic alliance. My goal is to empower my clients to confront, cope with, and overcome interpersonal struggles and significant distress, while having a safe, nonjudgmental space, to process their surroundings. 

 

I have experience within the context of individual, group and family counseling, in treating anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, suicidal ideation, self-esteem, body image and eating disorders. I have worked in the hospital and school settings, and I am familiar with multiple levels of care, giving me several perspectives in how to approach your concerns. I am well equipped to walk through many seasons of life and struggles; however my heart is with adolescent age and transitional aged youth, young adults, parent empowerment, and teenage girls. Additionally, for those seeking faith based services, I can provide Christian counseling. 

 

I engage in treatment through a variety of interventions including Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Based Treatment and Person Centered Therapy. Most importantly, I adapt my interventions and style to fit the needs of my clients individually.  I wholeheartedly believe one size does not fit all and I carry this belief into each and every session. Best of luck as you continue searching for a good fit for the season you currently find yourself in and I hope to meet you soon!

JOHN ZARSKI, CDCA / Peer Supporter

There is something about drawing with ink that I find a lot of satisfaction in. I enjoy drawing with a pencil as well, but there is just something special about ink.  One thing about ink though is that you can’t erase it. If you make a mistake while drawing with a pencil you can use an eraser to remove the error. But if your using ink, well….your pretty much stuck with it. That mark is there and it is not going away.

This fact has brought me plenty of frustration plenty of times, but there is a lot that it has taught me as well.

When you make that mark you have to work with it. You have to figure out a way to turn it into something that makes sense. Something that moves in harmony with the composition as a whole. Now, if you choose to embrace that,  if you choose to use that as an opportunity to explore, play, collaborate, and experiment, you may just end up with something that is far more interesting and exciting than anything you had initially envisioned.

As an individual in recovery I have found great comfort in that practice. My journey has taken me many places that I never had any intention of going, and many of those places seemed as though they had no exit. But ultimately I have found that so long as I continue to be a part of my own story, so long as I continue to work on this drawing, things often come together in surprising and exciting ways. I find that even though the picture doesn’t always look the way that I had intended for it to look, that doesn’t mean that the desired affect is not achieved. Sometimes the affect is even more gratifying and valuable than the one I had in mind at the start.

I believe that obstacles are opportunities, that challenges spark creativity, that pain can tap ones potential, and that mistakes can become masterpieces. I am a person in long term recovery with 8 years of experience in helping individuals to see these truths in their story, and to be a part of ones process as they learn to do so is a gift that is sacred in nature. The privilege to walk this portion of your path with you is my deepest honor.
