Dawn Dillon

A Little About Dawn:
I view life as constantly changing, presenting us with new challenges, both unwanted struggles and desired new opportunities. I believe many of the struggles from these challenges arise as we disconnect from ourselves and others. Reconnecting with ourselves, including our self-worth, values, emotions and goals, along with reconnecting with others in a healthy, positive way, can be transformative and rewarding. This journey is unique for each person. It is a journey of progress rather than perfection. My role is to be a professional guide along this part of your journey as you learn to reconnect to your own inner strength and wisdom.  
My education and experience over the past 20 years has provided me with opportunities to specialize in working with clients in demanding professions, such as healthcare, higher education, and law as well as with disordered eating, body image issues, eating disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder) and work-life balance.

Jennifer Samuel

A Little About Jenni:

I focus on creating a counseling relationship that is one of openness and partnership.  My role will be to provide an environment that allows you to feel safe as I join you on a journey of exploring what is working for you and what is not working for you.  I want to explore areas where you feel stuck and cannot seem to see a way through whether it is an issue within a relationship, a personal struggle, or a life situation.  My goal is help you achieve your goals.  I will not be imposing my values on the counseling relationship.  I am here to respect your values, choices, and goals.

As a counselor, I will be using a holistic approach that is informed by the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) which looks at the interconnectedness of our minds, bodies, and relationships.  I will use cognitive behavioral therapy where we explore the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that are holding clients from living the authentic life they desire to live.  I may incorporate sandtray therapy into the counseling sessions which allows the client to explore their inner world without being constrained to the use of language.  My goal is to meet the unique needs of each client with the therapeutic approach that works for them.
