Ellen L. Schipul, LPC

Licensed Therapist

As a Licensed Professional and pastoral Counselor, I offer therapeutic support to children, individuals, couples and families who are seeking emotional healing from traumas or painful experiences (abuse, chronic illness, bereavement), understanding and meaning through difficult life and transitional events (divorce, empty nest, parental caregiver, special needs child) or balance and peace of mind, heart and spirit through the challenges of stress in a modern world (anxiety, depression, fears, spiritual conflict, relationship issues). I specialize in SandTray therapy, a powerful process that heals without words. Although SandTray is particularly useful for treating children or those who experienced abuse or trauma, it is effective for all.

Kelly Hockenberry, MA

Psychotherapist/Attorney At Law

I believe that counseling is a collaborative process. The role of the therapist is to help facilitate the session dictated by the needs of the client. My theoretical orientation is a solution-focused, person-centered approach. Working together, the client is encouraged to identify what is already working for them and to uncover solutions for any existing barriers. As a family law attorney and custody mediator for over a decade, I have worked extensively with families through difficult family transitions. My goal as a counselor is to provide a comfortable and safe environment to encourage self-exploration.
