Laurie Jo Kjelstrom

M.A. Marriage & Family Therapist

I believe that living the life you want and having relationships that you desire takes patience,
perseverance and collaboration.  Our work together will develop your intellectual and
emotional strength to meet your desired goals. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression,
grief/loss, addiction, family issues, relationship challenges, or career transitions, my goal is to
help you learn how to navigate those struggles in a healthy and positive manner.

My style of therapy is interpersonal, supportive, open, and communicative. I find that most
people appreciate practical feedback and supportive guidance.
I encourage the exploration of behavioral patterns and making positive changes for your
emotional health. Working with couples, I foster communication leading to trust building and a
more enhanced relationship.

Elle Anzalone

Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor

I consider it an honor to develop a relationship with you and walk beside you on your journey to exploring your darkest corners and bringing some light into your shadows. For 13 years, I have been in the field of recovery and addiction. I have personal and professional experience with addiction and I am familiar with most types of recovery. Inpatient treatment can be expensive and is not appropriate for everyone. I can support you in making an informed decision in how to best treat your addiction without the sales pitch and get you and your family the the help you need.

I specialize in supporting individuals and couples become refined versions of themselves. I want to water the good seeds and shine light on your own intrinsic spiritual and emotional understanding of your world. I use a direct but compassionate approach to support people in achieving their goals.

The truth is: I became a therapist because I didn’t connect with my therapists. I found them to be dull and passive. I have often heard that I am not your typical therapist and I consider that a compliment. I truly want to assist you with compassion, laughter, and support on your journey of self discovery.
