Waynette Turner

EdD, MA, MCM, LPC, NCC

I focus on adolescent and adult using CBT and other individualized tools in order to change perspectives and empower the person. I primarily work with clients, experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma and relationship concerns. 

There are some challenges we feel ill-equipped to handle, especially when they accompany major life transitions.  These experiences can greatly impact our sense of stability, leave us feeling incapable and even doubtful about the future. I am committed to providing you with honest, respectful and thoughtful treatment to best serve your needs.  I seek to help individuals, who feel stuck due to negative past experiences or trauma. I assist people in uncovering patterns and negative self-talk that has resulted in unhealthy behaviors.  

My work with people is strength-based and client-centered. My approach is eclectic and combines multiple modalities and tools depending on your needs and goals. Some of them include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Christian Counseling, Solution-Focused Therapy, Art Therapy, Aroma Therapy and Sand Tray Therapies.

Social/Restorative Justice; Collaborative Problem-Solving; Spirituality; Moral Reconation Therapy are other practices and theories that influence my approach to therapy. My education combined with years of experience as a counselor/teacher to the at-risk population, has influenced my work with adolescents and adults.

I desire to help people overcome the concerns that prevent them from living and experiencing fulfillment in life.  I enjoy being able to encourage people and to celebrate their successes.  But the most meaningful moments are when “the light bulb comes on” and this changes the person’s path. I was born for this!
