I believe a snack and a nap can completely change your day. Work hard, play hard, always greet people with enthusiasm, learn new tricks no matter how old you are, trust your instincts, love unconditionally, forgive quickly, look at life with curiosity and wonder, find joy in the small things, and always let others know how much you love them!

My specialties are intimate relationships and individual personal growth. My work with couples primarily involves developing meaningful communication, deeper intimacy, an enhanced sex life and a renewed sense of connection between partners. I also work with individuals who are experiencing grief, trauma or loss relating to relationship break ups, infidelity, divorce or bereavement. The therapeutic approach of my practice is effective for Christian Counseling but equally applicable for persons of all faith backgrounds.

I entered the field of counseling to help people from a variety of diverse backgrounds heal from past experiences to be able to live more authentic lives that are aligned with their own personal values. I find tremendous meaning in walking alongside my clients as they navigate through both challenging times and times filled with joy.

I am a dedicated and compassionate therapist with a profound love for empowering individuals through the therapeutic journey. At the core of my practice is a commitment to support and accept each person on their unique path to personal growth and healing.

In my work with children and youth, I take a holistic approach to helping them flourish. I see each child as a unique individual, using different kinds of tools to help them in their own special way. I use play and games to make learning fun, a bit like putting puzzle pieces together. In our time together, I make sure each child feels heard and understood.

Kerrigan Spangler

I have over 5 years of administrative experience in the legal and government fields. I decided to make the switch to a counseling office because the area of mental health is one that is important to me and close to my heart.

I look forward to greeting all our clients and building strong relationships. I received my Master of Science in Sociology and Business Administration from the University of North Texas in 2017. In my free time you can find me playing with my pets, reading, doing crossword puzzles or at the farmer’s market.
