JO ANNE NEWTON

MEd LPC-S

I enjoy working with adolescents and young women. I have spent many years helping young women be empowered, encouraged and focused. Depression, adjustment disorders and eating disorders are among the issues I tend to deal with and have had great results.

I am a Christian counselor and that is the foundation of my practice.

My experience with adolescents in the military family has made me very knowledgeable of their unique issues. I have also included equine assisted therapy into some of my sessions and it has benefited the process.

AMANDA PACANINS

LCSW

Being a military wife from a military community and having previously worked with military children and their families, I have personal and professional experience with the unique issues related to service. I am passionate about helping people use their strengths to work through their pain to find peace and growth. I enjoy helping others work through relational issues by helping them work through negative dynamics, articulate their needs and good intentions to others, and take steps to improve their relationships. I also enjoy empowering others to overcome hang ups, ambivalence, and stagnancy. 

I take a practical approach to counseling and primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and motivational interviewing. My experiences as a social worker have contributed significantly to my knowledge of societal systems, resources, and relational networks available to people in need of support.
