OUR TEAM OF THERAPISTS
Our team is one of the most highly trained in the area. While most therapists are credentialed as MS, MA, MSW or LCSW (requiring only 4-6 years of training), we take pride in the fact that our team is made up of many Doctors, Psy.Ds or PhDs (meaning 8-10 years of experience). Our extensive experience means that we can handle the conditions from the most challenging to the struggles typical of modern life.
DR. BRENDA ALLOWAY, PhD, JD
Experience: President and Founder of the Center for Personal Growth, holds a Doctorate and Masters in Counseling Psychology. She is a Licensed Psychologist with over 30 years of experience helping individuals and organizations solve problems.
Specialties: I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. My goal is to help my clients improve their moods as well as their relationships with others.
Approach to Therapy: I find that helping my clients develop insight into why they do what they do helps them immensely. You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge! I work relentlessly to ensure that my clients obtain their goals for a lifetime of satisfaction, happiness, fulfillment and success.
Personal Interests: I love being a business owner and I love being a Mom to my little munchkins, Max and Mason. For fun, I enjoy fitness and travel.
Karen Haake, LMHC, NCC
Experience: I am a licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with a Master’s of Arts in Counseling and am a National Certified Counselor. I have over twenty-five years’ experience working with children, adolescents, teens and their families. I was a teacher for over twelve years and later a school guidance counselor.
Specialties: I work with children and teens on the Autism Spectrum. I also work with the geriatric population. As well as any clients who are experiencing depression, PTSD, anxiety, or anger management struggles.
Approach to therapy: I know that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps people change the thoughts that often create anxiety, depression, hopelessness, anger, and other dysfunctions. A change in our thinking can reset the wiring in the brain, increasing overall functioning.
Personal interests: Reading, exercising, gardening, and being with my family and friends.
