Alan Mark Walker, MS, LMFT

MarkMark has over 14 years of counseling experience and works with adult individuals and couples.  He deals with such issues as anxiety, depression, communication problems, loneliness and grief, and post-traumatic stress disorder.  Mark takes a person-centered approach to therapy, meaning he sees the power for growth and the direction of growth residing in the client rather than in the therapist.  Accordingly, he provides a warm and supportive environment in which a person can be heard, understood, and accepted without judgment.  He believes that only in such an environment can one hear one’s own voice apart from the judgmental “shoulds” and opinions of others, and can fully face one’s issues and decide for oneself what the best course of action might be.  Evidenced-based research indicates that the likely results of therapy will be a greater clarity of what one truly thinks and feels, greater effectiveness in problem solving, feeling less tense and anxious, less vulnerable and thus less defensive in relationships, feeling more confident and comfortable in one’s own skin, and a greater sense of self-control and self-direction in life. Mark accepts most major insurance companies and EAPs.  He accepts private pay, out-of-network insurance, and a sliding fee scale is available.  Daytime and some after-hour appointments are available.

Virginia Jenna L. Eyerly, LMFT

JennaI bring a wealth of training and experience to provide direction for individuals and for couples choosing premarital or marriage counseling.  I offer a safe and welcoming environment for exploration and change to help you find the resolution you want.  Many of those I work with find that my down to earth manner and focus on finding solutions is just what they need to move forward.   Individuals and couples often feel relieved to know they can learn the skills to be successful and improve their relationships.  All participation in therapy is voluntary.  Even if you have been strongly urged by others, the decision to participate and derive benefit from therapy is up to you.  The goal of therapy is not to change who you are, but to help you become more of who you want to be.   I welcome you to call and to ask any question, get more of a feel as to who I am, and learn about how I work.  I believe that it’s very important for you to feel comfortable and safe with the therapist you choose.   I accept most insurance plans and Employee Assistance Programs; and if you do not have insurance and you cannot afford therapy, we can discuss a fee you can manage.

Lisa Willek, M.Ed., LPC

My passion is helping people heal. Healing comes in many forms, including emotional, spiritual, relational, and physical. Healing in one area affects the other areas as well. I use a heart centered, spiritual approach to helping others. Heart centered counseling is an effective and compassionate way of being with you. It helps you be able to speak from the heart, truly be yourself and discover the beauty, strength, and wholeness that you already hold inside of you. Together we can build a strong, safe, nurturing relationship that promotes healing and well-being.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have worked with adults, children and families the majority of my life, in all different capacities. I have training in adult, group, family, adolescent, child and play therapy. I work with all ages, 2 to 102!  Working with children is one of my passions. My philosophy in working with children is that I help the child feel that he/she is a unique individual worthy of love, respect, and nurturing. Because of this, they are able to express feelings and work through their difficulties during play, which results in healing. I love working with parents, teaching them the techniques of positive parenting that can lead to healthy, harmonious relationships with their children.  I also enjoy working with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, or grief.  See her website, www.nurturingheartscounseling.net, for more information about her and her groups.
