Shirley Nedock, LPC
My professional experience includes over 13 years of experience working with our military service members and their dependents working through deployments, suicide, multiple relocation’s, marital issues, PTSD and other issues that military families face. In addition, I have worked with families, teens and children on multiple issues such as depression, anxiety, family issues, divorce, substance abuse, anger management, grief and loss, parenting skills, domestic violence, and adolescent issues.
I know that making the decision to contact a therapist can be difficult for some and my goal is to make the process as welcoming as possible. My approach to therapy is solution-focused and collaborative. You will find that sessions are more like a warm conversation in an office setting. I believe that everyone is motivated to succeed given the right tools in a safe and warm comfortable environment. I tend to use cognitive behavioral therapy or solution-focused therapy to help people overcome irrational and/or unhealthy thought patterns. I would love to help you overcome obstacles in your life and move forward.

Do you feel that your past is holding you back? Are you always worrying about the future? Are there days where getting out of bed seems impossible, or that things that once made you happy, don’t anymore? Do you feel tired, overwhelmed, and chaotic? Sometimes we need help clarifying and understanding our lives, like how our past influences our present, but doesn’t control it, and learning what we can change to make our life the one we want.

Allie Middleton, MS, LPC, RYT
Hello Beautiful Souls! My name is Allie, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Registered Yoga Teacher. Throughout my professional career, I have utilized a holistic approach to help my clients. I believe that we, as human beings, are able to heal, grow and thrive when we nurture our entire entity. I have found that a holistic approach is truly beneficial at aligning a whole person; mind, body, and soul. My approach to counseling is a person centered approach, and to help you to become more aware of your own emotions, thoughts, body and surroundings. By gaining this awareness and viewing the self in its entirety with compassion and grace, we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves at all levels, and are more capable to promote progress and enhance our quality of life. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Development in 2012, and my master’s degree in Professional Counseling in 2015. During my career, I have had the opportunity of working with children and families that have experienced grief and loss, abuse and neglect, depression, anxiety, neurodevelopmental issues, and other complex trauma in a residential setting. I also have experience working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in school and day care settings, and am passionate about integrating movement and sensory based modalities in with my counseling. It is a privilege to see how resilient human beings can be! In my own time, I teach yoga, enjoy kayaking and being in nature, and spending time with my loved ones.
