Meet Our Therapists

Pansy 3.jpg

Pansy Ayala, LSW

therapist/Licensed social worker
She, Her, Hers

who I work with:

I help hard-working professionals, young adults and parents who are feeling overwhelmed and disconnected to take back your power so you can get some relief and balance back into your life. Maybe you are having trouble being vulnerable, connecting meaningfully with others, or having your needs met in relationships. Many of my clients experience anxiety and/or depression, and some of my clients experience grief after a loss and are looking for extra support.


If you are a parent or expectant parent, you want the best for yourself and your family. You might be struggling to adjust to your new life while pregnant or with your baby, while coping with emotional and physical changes such as postpartum anxiety or depression. Parenting can be challenging! If any of this sounds like you, it might be time to reach out for extra support.

If you're interested in meeting with Pansy, you can book an appointment directly online or contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.


Alicia Kwande, LCSW

therapist/Licensed Clinical Social Worker

who I work with:

I help high achievers, perfectionists and people-pleasers who are feeling exhausted and alone to find meaning and fulfillment in your life. Maybe something recently happened that’s making it hard to adjust to. It could be job-related stress or a relationship break-up, moving to a new location, increased anxiety or depression, or loss of a loved one. Regardless of what happened, you’re feeling overwhelmed and like you cannot control your emotions.


Your guilt and stress over trying to do everything the way it “should” be done is resulting in feeling down, worried, or hopeless. And some days, you’re not quite sure how you’ll make it through the day. You start to wonder, should I talk to someone who understands what I’m going through?

I am licensed in both Colorado and Texas and can work with anyone in these states. If you're ready for therapy with Alicia, you can book an appointment directly online or contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.


Kristen Dammer, LCSW

therapist/Licensed Clinical Social Worker

who I work with:

I help adults with trauma and ADHD, pregnant and postpartum women, and other therapists who feel overwhelmed and unsupported to regain your life back, so you can once again feel whole. You might be a new mom that feels like a failure because “momming” isn’t the ideal experience you see on social media. Or perhaps you are newly diagnosed with ADHD and your sense of identity is shaken. Maybe you experienced a trauma that your family and friends seem to dismiss or you never worked through, and now it’s affecting your relationships. Finally, you might be a therapist in the field who is looking for extra support to manage the difficult work you do everyday.


I’ve worked with many clients just like you, and I can help. I provide supportive listening, coping skills, EMDR if indicated, understanding and resources as you grapple with all that is affecting you. You can get through this!

Dylan Mackie-hernandez, lpc

she, her, hers

who i work with:


You are more analytical in your thinking patterns, and you tend to be highly logical, intelligent, and high-achieving. However, you have difficulty getting in touch with your emotional side, and that is causing you problems in relationships and perhaps even in your career growth. You may be experiencing anxiety (social or generalized), depression, or grief, and you’re not sure how to break free of these negative thinking patterns. These obstacles are separating you from living your most meaningful life. You want move past your anxious or depressed thoughts and feelings and break free of patterns that have become an impediment to your happiness.

If you're ready for therapy with Dylan, you can book an appointment directly online or you can contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Marie Clyne, LSW

therapist/Licensed Social Worker

who I work with:

You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, or ADHD, and are feeling like you just can’t catch a break. You’re overwhelmed, constantly on edge, and making it through each day is like running a marathon that you were unable to train for. Dealing with all of this inside of you makes you feel so alone, believing that no one understands how you’re feeling. 

I work best with those of you who are experiencing work-related stress and relationship issues, as a result of feeling down, swamped, stressed out, or too scattered. What you want to get from therapy is compassion, understanding, and solid solutions for getting back to your “normal” self.

If you're ready for therapy with Marie, you can book an appointment directly online or contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Chris 3 large.jpg

Chris Campassi, LPC, LCMHC, ACS

He, HIs, Him

who i work with:

I help men, medical professionals and former athletes to manage stress, create a more satisfying work-life balance and reconnect with the people and activities that are most important to you. Do you consider yourself a  high-achiever, working in a demanding environment? Do you often find yourself doing things yourself because others aren’t able to, or won’t? Do you sometimes feel that there is not enough time in the day to do what you need to do, or what others expect you to do?


If so, you may feel exhausted and overwhelmed. You might even find yourself feeling resentful towards others. You may also be more withdrawn or isolated, devoting more time to work and responsibilities, and less time enjoying your hobbies or spending time with loved ones. You may even be using alcohol or other substances to remedy feelings of anxiety or depression

If you're ready for counseling with Chris in either Colorado or North Carolina, you can book an appointment directly online, or you can contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.

Shannon Heers, LPC, LMHC, CAS, ACS

owner and therapist

She, Her, Hers

who i work with:

My passion is working with high-level professionals, pregnant or postpartum moms, and parents to help you manage your stress, anxiety and grief. You are trying to balance your job with your personal life and most days you’re feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and like you’ll never be yourself again. Or as a new mom you are feeling emotions you never thought you’d be having after your baby such as depression, feeling lost or empty, or excessive anxiety that you are getting buried under. You may even want to run away from everything despite cherishing your loved ones and having built up a solid career. When your life balance is out of whack, you and your family are the ones that suffer. You want to feel more in control of yourself and your life but you don’t know what to do or how to do it.

If you're ready for counseling with Shannon in either Colorado or Washington, you can book an appointment directly online, or you can contact us for a free 20-minute phone consultation.
