Jennie Dalcour, MA, LPC

Clinical Supervisor, Child & Family Therapist

Meet Jennie

She believes her role in therapy is to be a guide, to walk alongside clients, as they develop their own strength and motivation to change.

She tailors therapy to each person to address current concerns and past trauma when appropriate.
 
She believes that clients are the experts in their own lives. She views clients’ experiences through a family systems lens, understanding how family dynamics affect people throughout their lives. She is a licensed professional counselor specializing in treating complex developmental and attachment trauma in children, adolescents, and adults.
 
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her children and pets. She is also active in her church as a children’s teacher.

She sees the world through the lens of relationships and the impact of our experiences within those relationships – both past and present. She is an avid learner and especially enjoys learning more about interpersonal neurobiology, attachment, the impact of trauma on our body and brain, and incorporating movement and sensory experiences into counseling. Her heart is that every client finds compassion for themselves, their partner, or their children and deep levels of healing individually and interpersonally.

Michelle and her husband have two adult children, were foster parents in the past, and are active in the community.

Meet Sarah

*Currently, not accepting new clients

If God can raise Jesus from the dead, he can do anything! True, lasting change is a partnership between the Holy Spirit, you, and the team you trust. She would be honored to be part of your team, not telling you what to do, but rather providing care, encouragement, and perspective along the way.

Seth Strawn, MS, LPC

Child & Family Therapist

Meet Seth

Seth works from a humanistic-existential theoretical orientation utilizing a person-centered approach and remaining eclectic with different techniques and modalities (such as DBT skills and CBT).

His goal as a counselor is to help people through the process of healing. He wants to walk alongside people to support them as they continue moving forward toward a place of wholeness, wellness, and peace, paying attention to all aspects of a person’s well-being – emotional, mental, relational, spiritual, and physical.

He believes that a large part of personal growth and healing comes when people are able to recognize and build upon their strengths while at the same time being able to express and process their challenges openly and safely in an environment where they are listened to, respected, and feel understood. Everyone has a story to tell, everyone’s stories are different, and all of those stories are still in process.

His hope is to help people feel secure and rooted in a strong sense of identity and to find a sense of meaning and purpose within their own stories.

As a counselor, he is able to provide a safe space for this to happen by meeting people where they’re at while providing compassion, empathy, genuineness, and acceptance.

His faith and belief in Jesus as a Christian are the most significant reasons and motivations for why he does what he does. For those who are open to it, he is excited to incorporate the skills from counseling sessions with spiritual and faith-based beliefs.

His favorite ways to spend his time include hiking, being outdoors and in nature, remaining physically active, traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
