Jennie Dalcour, MA, LPC

Child & Family Therapist

Meet Jennie

I believe my role in therapy is to be a guide, to walk alongside clients, as they develop their own strength and motivation to change. Healing and change are organic processes that vary with each individual, occurring when clients feel accepted and safe where they are. I tailor therapy to each person to address current concerns and past trauma when appropriate.
 
I believe that clients are the experts in their own lives. I view clients’ experiences through a family systems lens, understanding how family dynamics affect people throughout their lives. I am a licensed professional counselor specializing in treating complex developmental and attachment trauma in children, adolescents, and adults.
 
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children and pets. I am active in church as a children’s teacher. 

Josette Kehl, MSW, LCSW, CCTP

Family Coach

Meet Josette

I view parents as absolutely key in the healing process of their children. I love to help educate, support and brainstorm with parents in order to help them provide the best environment they can. I believe change can happen when parents bring new compassion, knowledge, and skills to their parenting and begin to see their children flourish. I’m very practical in my approach—I want you to understand how to apply and new skill or piece of knowledge.

I have more than 10 years of experience in Child Welfare and have been a Family Coach for the past 3 years. I’ve been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2004 and a TBRI® Practitioner since 2019.

In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband of 26 years and my 3 young adult children.  I also enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, biking, and traveling.

Anna Diaz, MS, LAMFT

Child & Family Therapist

Meet Anna

Seeking therapy takes courage. Change happens when we have a safe environment in which to explore ourselves as well as key relationships that contribute to who we are today. My goal is to create a safe and compassionate environment in which self-understanding and self-empowerment can be explored and nurtured to create healthy and fulfilling family relationships.  

My therapy involves the use of Play Therapy techniques as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Integrative Parenting strategies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Structural Family Therapy and I enjoy working with adolescents, individuals, and families in English and Spanish.

Kimberly Langford, MAAC, LASAC, CCTS-I

Family Coach

Meet Kimberly

My goal as a Family Coach is to help clients thrive in their role within the family and empower them to make positive changes within their family. This is done by teaching the client principles and Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) techniques and inviting the client into a trauma-informed approach to parenting.  

Because my goal is to set you up for success in making progress toward your specific goal, I like to begin with a brief phone call to gain further insight into why you’re seeking family coaching. I can then begin formalizing an individual treatment plan that guides us through your coaching together. In each session you can expect a form of psychoeducation, providing you with TBRI related skills and techniques to begin using within your home as we work toward meeting the goals you have for your family.

I am married and we are the proud parents to a baby girl! While I find complete joy in the ministry the Lord has blessed me to be a part of in both my profession and in service, I also have a great love for baking, event planning, and dressing up my daughter.

Sarah Earles, MS, LPC

Child & Family Therapist

Meet Sarah

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. I 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.

You can choose if you would like faith-based content in therapy or not. My faith motivates me to do what I do, but I am here to help you and your family achieve healing, health, and happiness based on what those mean to you. Expect lots of brainstorming for creative ideas, body movement or other interactive activity, and life metaphors from me in session. I believe that health and healing are whole-person experiences!

My husband and I have lived in a variety of other states but call Arizona home. In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, cooking, crafting, reading, and writing.

Haley Morte, MS

Child & Family Therapist, Family Coach

Meet Haley

My goal is to make all those who enter the counseling environment feel welcome and seen. When working with children, I hope to both empower them and provide them with the tools to gain healthy awareness so they can communicate their needs. When consulting with parents, I hope to provide them with the psychoeducation of how various experiences impact the brain in addition to learning of ways to effectively meet the needs of the children in their home.

I graduated with a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling and have worked with children ages 4-18 as well as their parents.

I have been married to my husband for six years and we have personal experience with foster care and adoption as we are foster parents. I enjoy spending time in Northern Arizona and being outdoors.

Brandon Jones, MA, LPC

Child & Family Therapist, Family Coach

Meet Brandon

It is my prayer and heartfelt desire that every person that meets with me for therapy will leave with a deeper understanding of their strength and ability to overcome any obstacle. I look forward to supporting you during your journey of moving from surviving to thriving using research-based counseling interventions. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I make it a top priority to create a counseling environment that is safe, non-judgmental, collaborative, and encouraging.

For those that share the Christian faith, I use scripture to encourage and inspire the healing process and will join you in praying to ask God to help the healing process.

Having learned some valuable lessons from my personal experiences, my 15 years of marriage, and parenting my 5 biological and adopted children, I look forward to supporting you as you navigate life’s challenges.

Lucy Parkes, BA, CCTP

Family Coach

Meet Lucy

I chose to work in this field after searching for how to help my children heal from their difficult pasts. I understand much of what the parents I work with are going through.  My approach is to build on each family’s strengths, while providing psychoeducation on trauma and attachment that relates to their unique situation, so they can better understand what is driving their children’s behavior. 

I aim to encourage and empower families while suggesting strategies that can improve connection and behavior. When working with clients, I draw on the culmination of my education and personal experience to help families understand the big picture of what drives behavior as well as provide practical strategies that help to heal.

I am married with a blended family, and we have five children, two of them are adopted. When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family, especially doing things outdoors like camping, swimming, and hiking. 

Giselle Ortiz, MA, LPC

Mental Health Therapist

Meet Giselle

Giselle speaks Spanish and English, offering services in both languages, as well as has experience working among Native American families from her time working near the Navajo Nation.

I believe that every person has the right to heal, the power to change, and the potential for growth. I strive to provide an emotionally safe place for healing, restoration and growth through active listening and empowering my clients with essential skills.

I specialize in negative thinking, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, communication skills, and assertiveness skills.

Some of my favorite hobbies are reading, drinking tea, singing, and traveling.

Seth Strawn, MS, LAC

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).

My goal as a counselor is to help people through the process of healing. I want 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.

I believe 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.

My 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, I am able to provide a safe space for this to happen by meeting people were they’re at, while providing compassion, empathy, genuineness, and acceptance.

My faith and belief in Jesus as a Christian are the most significant reason and motivation for why I do what I do. For those who are open to it, I am excited to incorporate the skills from counseling sessions with spiritual and faith-based dimensions of belief.

Some of my favorite ways of spending my time include hiking, being outdoors and in nature, remaining physically active, traveling, reading, and spending intentional time with family and friends.

Stephen Kaech, MA

Marriage & Family Therapist

Meet Stephen

I love families! I have spent the past 19 years working with stepfamily/blended family couples and children helping them to navigate the unique aspects of family life.

My desire is to work with all aspects of the relationships within families whether it is the husband-wife, parent-child, or sibling relationship, and within all family types – nuclear, step/blended, foster, or adoptive – each being unique and valuable in God’s eyes in their own special ways.

Having spent many years doing short-term mission’s trips around the world, I am also keenly aware of the unique aspects that culture can bring to the therapeutic environment.

I have been married to my wife for 23 years and together (we are a stepfamily) we have 4 daughters and 7 grandchildren. We love spending time with our family as well as travelling the world whether it is flying to a destination or cruising.
