Chelsea Johnson, MA, LPC

I am the owner of Tree of Life Counseling and Wellness and thrilled to have the opportunity to serve this community. I have a Master of Arts Degree from Western Michigan University in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling. My Bachelor's degree is in Archaeology. During college, I worked for an international nonprofit providing support to kids in foster care, refugees from all over the world, and parents considering adoption. I have previously worked in home based counseling, and contracted school counseling. I work with families, couples, and individuals. My specialties include working with children and adolescents, attachment related trauma, anxiety, depression, adoption/foster care, and perinatal/maternal mental health. I am ACT, DBT, CBT, and EMDR informed. 
I would be honored to work with you, no matter who you are or what you are going through. I am committed to walking with you on your journey to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. The counseling process has been created for just that.

Kaley Castillo, MA, LLPC, LLMFT

Hello! My name is Kaley Ford, and I’m a Limited Licensed Professional Counselor and a Limited Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have 5+ years of experience working with individuals from various backgrounds. My specialties include counseling adolescents age 12 and up, adults, couples, and families. I've received extensive training in trauma and worked in a community mental health setting for four years prior to my private practice work.
 I’m well versed in community resources and have a great deal of experience treating individuals who deal with depression, anxiety, ADHD and other mood and behavioral disorders. I am creative with my interventions and tend to incorporate CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and mindfulness into my practice.
 Finding the right therapist can be tough. If you think we could be a good fit, I would like to work with you to help you can reach your goals! I will provide a safe space for you to explore what brought you into therapy and will always strive to provide the best care possible.

Melanie Bugnaski, MA LLPC

My passion in counseling is helping clients understand who they are, to gain skills that help them meet their goals, and to provide educational opportunities for growth. Together WE define your goals and set obtainable objectives to meet those goals... you are the expert of you! Think of me as your helper or guide...

I currently serve all ages from pre-school children through empty-nesters! I use empirically validated solution focused and cognitive behavioral techniques while integrating play, art, exercise and music. I also utilize client-centered techniques, family systems, and psychodynamic approaches which provide tools to customize your needs.

I am a licensed counselor, coach, tutor, instructor, and photographer. A background in design mixed with life experiences enables me to analyze difficult circumstances, troubleshoot in creative ways, and provide empathy to clients with a holistic approach. My goal is to build trust in the therapeutic relationship, to allow a space for healing.
