Why Choose Us

Mental Health Specialists Who Care

Sandy Quast speaks with ABC News on “Seeking positivity after tragedy and how to channel feelings.”


Look for help Today!

We offer a variety of services for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.​

Individual & Family Counseling

 Through one-on-one or family sessions, you can come to see yourself, your family dynamic and challenges more clearly – and make decisions that bring you closer to the person and family you want to become.

Couples Counseling

Through a series of private sessions, you and your partner can develop healthy ways to resolve conflicts, find compassion, nurture each other and get what you need from your relationship.

Counseling Approaches Utilized

Solution-Focused Counseling Approach

Solution-Focused (SFBT & REBT) counseling parallels positive psychology which concentrates on what is right and what is working for people rather that dwelling on the past. It is a goal-oriented approach to therapy that emphasizes strengths and resiliencies of the individual by focusing on exemptions to their problems. Therapy focuses on identifying and increasing those positive behaviors that have worked in the past. This theoretical approach is grounded on the optimistic assumption that people are resourceful and competent and have the ability to construct solutions that can change the direction of their lives.  During counseling the therapist assists clients to recognize the resources that they already possess (resilience, courage, ingenuity,…) and use their past strengths to make positive change in their lives now.  Therapy includes discussions about what is going well, future possibilities, and what will likely lead to a sense of personal accomplishment. The client gains power with self-helping techniques, which makes this form of therapy a very empowering approach.

Existential Therapy

Existential therapy is a way of thinking that emphasizes our freedom to choose what to make of our personal circumstances.  It is a process of exploring a client’s values and beliefs that give meaning to living. This approach focuses on the ultimate concerns that are rooted in human existence: freedom, existential isolation, meaninglessness, and death. It focuses on the fact that we are free and therefore responsible for our own choices and actions. Even though we cannot control what happens to us, we can control how we perceive and react to our life circumstances. The goal in therapy is for the client to reclaim and re-own their own life. There are four essential aims of existential counseling:

1.      To help clients become more present to both themselves and others.
2.      To assist clients in identifying ways they block themselves from fuller presence.
3.      To challenge clients to assume responsibility for designing their present lives.
4.      To encourage clients to choose more expanded ways of being in their daily lives.

The goal of existential therapy is to assist clients to take positive action based on their honest appraisal of their life’s purpose. The therapist’s task is to encourage clients to consider what they are most passionate about, so they can pursue that positive direction in their lives.

Reality Therapy

The main focus of reality therapy is that we can only control what we are presently doing.  We may be a product of our past, but we are not the victims of our past unless we choose to be. Reality therapy focuses on doing and the creation and implementation of action plans. Clients can improve the overall quality of their lives through honest examination of their wants, needs and how they perceive their lives to be. Reality counseling recognizes that all behavior is aimed at fulfilling the essential human needs for survival, love and belonging, power, freedom and fun. In counseling we will explore your personal life balance and explore ways to create a more fulfilling, greater balance in your life’s experience. 

Cognitive Behavior Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is utilized to change unhealthy thinking pattern and behaviors and develop an awareness of the connection between a person’s thoughts, feelings and actions. CBT is a type of psychotherapy in which negative patterns of thought about the self and the world are challenged in order to alter unwanted behavior patterns. CBT integrates the cognitive restructuring approach of cognitive therapy with the behavioral modification techniques of behavioral therapy.  The therapist works with the client to identify both the thoughts and the behaviors that are causing distress, and to change those thoughts in order to readjust the behavior patterns. 

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is utilized to change unhealthy thinking pattern and behaviors and develop an awareness of the connection between a person’s thoughts, feelings and actions. Trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy is an evidence-based psychotherapy or counselling that aims at addressing the needs of children and adults with post traumatic stress disorder and other difficulties related to traumatic life events.

Somatic Body Oriented Therapy

Body-oriented models such as Somatic Experiencing® may be utilized to encourage harmony of spirit, body, and mind after a traumatic experience or chronic stress. The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.  Somatic Experiencing® offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states. It provides effective skills appropriate to a variety of healing professions including mental health, medicine, physical and occupational therapies, bodywork, addiction treatment, first response, education, and others.

Kayla O'Riley, LPCA

The journey of mental health is a long, winding road. Sometimes it is hard to find direction, and taking the step to seek counseling is one of the bravest things someone can do!  Although the road may have construction, detours, or stop signs, my goal is to support you through the obstacles you face in life's greatest challenges.

By using a person-centered approach, my goal is to help you work through whatever you're going through, learn more about yourself, and develop a healthy lifestyle so you can be the best person you can be.  Working with ages 5 to 35, I use techniques such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Christian-based Therapy, Play Therapy, Music Therapy, Art Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Coastal Carolina University and graduated from Capella University with my Master's degree in 2023. I am currently a LPCA under the supervision of Sandy Quast, LPCS of Coastal Haven Counseling. 

At some point, everyone has experienced some sort of emotional distress whether it be anxiety, depression, the illness or death of a loved one, the pain of relationship distress, a traumatic experience, or even the demands of everyday life.

I am extremely dedicated to helping my clients heal, improve their lives, and reach their own personal goals. I treat the following conditions below and would be glad to assist you. I am bilingual as well, speaking english or spanish.

Sometimes life is hard, frustrating, overwhelming… I utilize a strengths-based approach and treat each person I see as an individual. I am honored to be given the privilege to share in one’s life story, and work together to help them to find more life fulfillment and joy in every day. While I am happy to see anyone seeking services, I have a heart for helping members of the LGBTQIA+ community. 

Research shows that youth who identify as LGBTQ are at an increased risk of suicidal ideation and self-harm, particularly when they also experience discrimination based on their sexual or gender identity. Young people who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender are almost ten times as likely to have experienced bullying and victimization at school and more than twice as likely to have considered suicide as their heterosexual, non-transgender classmates within the previous year.

Come see me if you are looking for a safe, supportive environment to find and enjoy your very best self. I consider myself lucky to be able to do what I love and help others on a daily basis. I look forward to working with you!

I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, relationship issues, grief, trauma, substance abuse issues, and more.

I use a multitude of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and Trauma Focused treatment strategies. I am truly committed to inspiring those I serve to live a life that is in line with their goals, hopes and dreams. I believe that everyone has the capacity for change, and the human spirit is strong and resilient. I am passionate about helping my clients progress successfully in their journey through life.

We all have times in which we struggle in life and need a helping hand. We face choices in life, circumstances come up. Life happens and our normal ways of dealing and coping aren't working. I utilize a person-centered approach, working with the client to find what works, as I recognize that there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to an individual's unique needs. I approach counseling with empathy and free of judgment. I specialize in managing depression, anxiety, anger management, relationship and couples issues, and LGBTQ+ issues.

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and a variety of other evidence-based, person-centered approaches to meet the needs of my clients. I am solution-focused and strengths-focused.

Wendy Talbert

Courage is that part of us that tells us to try again when we feel defeated or discouraged when things don't go as planned despite our efforts. I believe that understanding and acceptance of our uniqueness and respecting different ways of learning, doing, and being our "personal best" is key to our well-being and positive sense of self. For me, counseling provides a safe haven for the release of thoughts and feelings without judgement. It can help open yourself to shaping and changing for positive behaviors and actions.

Throughout my life and thirty years of career experiences in the areas of counseling,  education and social work, I have sought to be an informed advocate for children, adolescents , and families.  I specialize in working with children and adolescents and adults with academic, social and emotional challenges, including ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Family Conflict, Self-Esteem, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Behavioral Disorders. I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and mindfulness techniques to treat anxiety, depression and mood disorders.  I look forward to helping you confront challenges and build confidence for future goals.

Life is filled with road blocks and sometimes it can be difficult to focus on what truly matters.

I help people regain their ability to regulate and normalize the oftentimes devastating feelings and sensations that can overwhelm your life following trauma. I specialize in working with teens, adults and couples to assist you in overcoming  issues holding you back in life.
