Certified Massage Therapist
Ness is truly gifted with magic hands. She has been blessed with this talent from a very young age. She honed her skills when she attended the 3 Oaks Academy Integrative Therapy Clinic where she studied anatomy and physiology with a focus on anxiety and relaxation. When Laura Rhodes-Levin, founder of The Missing Peace-Center for Anxiety, got her first massage from Ness, she offered her a place in the organization on the spot! Fortunately, for the patients at our center Ness agreed. She will sit with you face to face and discuss where you hold anxiety in your body and then you can lay back and feel your anxiety melt away.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for almost 25 years. My experiences range from working in a locked psychiatric unit of a hospital (for over 10 years), running and working at various residential and outpatient mental health and drug and alcohol programs, to having a successful private practice. There are times when one’s trauma becomes an obstacle to continued growth. When this happens, I am here to help.
EMDR allows me a way to work with a client that is being controlled by the impact of their past. EMDR is an evidence based approach proven successful in helping people suffering from PTSD, and other symptoms of trauma. As a certified EMDR therapist, I have been able to help people work through trauma, that they long ago gave up hope of ever doing. I have learned to trust the process of EMDR, and have seen miraculous results.
May you be happy, may you be at ease, may you be free from suffering; as you pursue your life’s journey.
