Drew M. Mjoen, MA, MDiv, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Founder / Director

Having worked with adults, couples, and adolescents on personal, marital, and professional issues, I've seen them experience significant healing by my joining them on their journey - exploring impasses, obstacles, and broken dimensions of their lives while also helping to identify effective coping strategies and lasting solutions. By engaging relationally in clients' unique stories, I draw out insights, affirm their strengths, and unlock potential so that they can achieve the healing, change, and growth that they desire.

Karlee Williams, MSW, LSW

Licensed Social Worker

It's a joy to sit with people in their stories and walk with them into a new session of healing. By learning to develop new coping strategies, you'll gain a sense of adequacy as you move forward. With an integrative therapeutic approach, I'll adapt to you, rather than imposing my own beliefs or perspectives. I've helped clients of all ages face grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, marital concerns, and spiritual issues. My hope is that though in the middle of something difficult, they know how deeply loved they are, and how much they belong.

Andrea Freberg, MAATC, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Art Therapist

It's a privilege to walk alongside clients and meet them where they're at by developing a trusting, consistent relationship with them. With my background in art therapy, I offer clients space to include art-making within sessions if they are comfortable in doing so. I believe that using creativity and expression can be helpful for clients to gain new perspectives and find connection with themselves and others. My hope is to help every client develop coping strategies and gain personal understanding, self-confidence, and growth.

Christine Mjoen, CSD

Certified Spiritual Director

Spiritual Direction is the art of listening deeply to another person in such a way that they begin to notice and respond to God's presence and movement in their life. This can be a life-giving and transforming process for those who participate in this special relationship. As a Spiritual Director, it is my goal to help others respond to this deep longing by allowing my clients to feel profoundly heard in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space. In an age of busy, finding rest for our souls and what deeply satisfies is to encounter the love of God.
