Our Practitioners

“Children thrive on positive touch and praise. This also includes allowing for open communication. Focus on the positives rather than the negative. Provide hugs and kisses daily and encourage your child to speak to you from the beginning. Give them opportunities to spend quality time with you. Hear out their feelings instead of discounting them.”

“Your motivation is key when making changes in your life. Change can be very difficult and slow. We might like our routine or habits, but know that this routine, lifestyle or substance is not productive, healthy, or safe. Perhaps we just want to do better this year than we did in the last year. Become a better version of yourself!”

Shantone Davenport, MS, Licensed Mental Health Counselor enjoys working with individuals, couples, children and families. She uses a variety of methods to help her clients find their unique path to emotional health, wholeness, personal empowerment and improved relationships with others. Her mindfulness-based approach employs journaling, expressive art, and cognitive behavioral therapy to focus on solving current problems and changing unhelpful thought patterns.

Kim Haines, MA, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, has a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling and a Master of Arts degree in Human Services Counseling with emphasis in Crisis Response and Trauma from Liberty University. 

Kim has several years’ experience in working with addiction, codependency, trauma and resilience, depression, anxiety, relationships, family conflict, spirituality, self-esteem, grief and other areas of life change.

Kim uses a mindfulness approach that focuses on the client feeling “understood and accepted” for who they are.  She explores obstacles to healing and healthy relationships with the client.  She uses cognitive-behavioral therapy to help the client with negative self-talk and how to practice self-love and compassion. 

She is very passionate about her clients learning how to see themselves through a lens of self-worth and understanding by using a strength-based perspective of tools to help guide them to understand and celebrate themselves for the unique human beings they are and use the strengths given to them to work through the circumstances and traumas of life.

“I can successfully help individuals with emotional and behavioral difficulties because significant emotional disruptions, traumatic events and emotional turmoil happened in my childhood and were left unresolved. My approach is holistic and family oriented.  I encourage parental involvement with children to help guide you and your child to an improved, happier, and healthy relationship and future!”
