Kristy McNamee, LMHC
Therapist, Collaborative Director
I have over 18 years of experience working with children, teens, adults, and families addressing a wide variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and trauma. One of my passions is helping people navigate through the grieving process. I am EMDR trained and ART certified and have found these to be very effective treatments when dealing with trauma, loss, phobias, depression, and anxiety. As a wife, mother, and counselor, I understand how busy life can be. Because we are happier when our lives are more balanced, I seek to help others achieve greater health and happiness through achieving more balance. I also strive to provide a warm, inviting, and safe atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. I know that it can be anxiety-provoking to start therapy, and that makes it even more important to provide a non-judgmental space to assist in the open communication of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I seek to meet people where they are at and help them to reach the goals that they set for therapy. I believe therapy is best when it is a collaborative process where everyone feels understood, heard, and respected.

Amber Colt, LCSW
I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 25 years. My clinical work has been primarily in an outpatient setting providing individual, family and group therapies. I have experience working with many mental health issues including anxiety, depression and inattention as well as autism and other social and communication struggles. It has always been very important to me that the clients I work with feel accepted, supported and understood. I believe the therapeutic relationship is the most crucial component of a successful counseling experience and it is central to my mission. We will work together to increase self awareness and build and strengthen coping skills so as to promote positive change. Beginning or continuing a journey through counseling takes significant strength and courage. Recognizing it as such and empowering clients to achieve the goals they set so that they feel more content and capable is a priority.
