Our Therapists

At One Heart Counseling Center, you are working with therapists who work on themselves.  That means you are being guided by someone who is willing to be in the trenches and do the things they are asking you to do.  You are working with therapists who know about the Human Emotional System. They can help you decode the information that wants to come forward and teach you about how to manage the discomfort that can sometimes come with experiencing your feelings.
