I have a passion for providing non-judgmental help to those who need it, and for a variety of concerns and issues. I believe in meeting my clients where they are, and working together in the therapeutic process. I take a positive yet realistic approach to the treatment process, and truly believe that, with a little bit of help, everyone has the ability to improve themselves and work through their struggles. I am enthusiastic in my work, and using a client-centered method, I strive to tailor my approach to the needs of each individual I work with.

My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental and collaborative environment in which to empower clients to make the changes they want to see in their lives.  I believe in meeting clients where they are and linking them with community resources to meet other life needs as well.

I have worked extensively with children for over 14 years.  This experience has provided me with a passion to work with children/adolescents who are experiencing a behavioral struggles such as ADHD/ADD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, anger management, anxiety and depression.   My life experience has also led me to have a great interest in working with children/adolescents who have been diagnosed with Autism, developmental disorders and learning disorders.  I utilize a cognitive/behavioral approach which allows                                                                           therapy to meet the needs of the individual while allowing them to be an active part of treatment.

Travis Nugent, LMFT-IT 
Marriage and Family Therapist 

Every part of you is welcome, and I will help you see that you are much stronger than you think you are! I am encouraging, supporting, funny, and compassionate. By being down to earth and authentic, my style encourages clients to be themselves in therapy. Through this they gain knowledge of their individual and relational patterns and how to intercept and change them.

As an Experiential therapist, clients that see me gain insight into themselves and their symptoms (depression, anger, anxiety), and delve deeper into healing the origin of where they came from.

I will be warm, and I will be challenging in a confident and hope filled way. I feel so honored to be with my clients, and look forward to meeting you soon. Please reach out to me if I sound like a good fit for you and/or your family!

Vanessa Wright-Cybela, LPC-IT
Mental Health Therapist

My mission is to help my clients effectively learn and address any psychological, emotional, physical, and/or decision making issues that they are experiencing within their lives. I believe that there is no, “one size fits all” way to providing superb therapy services and that clients have the ability to conquer any obstacles that they may be facing. I utilize and take an integrative approach, which allows sessions to be tailored to meet each individual’s needs. The approach I take allows the clients to take an active role in their treatment process. The clients can explore what may be causing their problems in life, how to access, understand and unite with their psyche. I work with clients to help them identify their strengths, which can assist them with getting through stressful life situations. My specialties include the following; grieving, anger management correction, trauma, depression, anxiety, mood disturbances, behavioral issues, and individuals in the criminal justice system.

My therapeutic style encourages clients to be themselves while learning how to approach life in a more open and                                                            productive way. As being your therapist I will always be supportive and non-judgmental, listen with an                                                                              open mind, and treat you as my equal.
