Our Team

Muriell Carlisle

LMHC, RAS, C.H.T.

Thursday-Monday 9:00am to 4:00pm PST.

🌍 A Global Perspective: My counseling career began in psycho-social rehabilitation centers in Miami, where I honed my skills in helping individuals navigate the complexities of mental health. My path led me to US military bases overseas in Germany and Italy, where I had the honor of providing support to service members and their families. This international experience broadened my understanding of the human psyche and the universal need for empathy and healing.

🌴 From Miami to Oregon: Born in the vibrant and culturally rich Nicaragua, I eventually found my home in the dynamic city of Miami, Florida, where I spent many years before embarking on my overseas journey. After several years abroad, I made a life-changing decision to settle in the serene landscapes of Oregon. I currently reside on a tranquil ranch in Southern Oregon, where I live with my loving husband, a crazy cat, and a delightful flock of chickens.

☕ Simple Pleasures: In the midst of my counseling endeavors and travels, I’ve discovered that life’s greatest joys often reside in the simplest of things. A wise book can transport us to different worlds, a hearty laugh can brighten the darkest days, and hiking through nature can nourish the soul. I find solace in meditation and cherish the moments spent savoring a great cup of coffee.

🤝 My Life’s Purpose: Above all, my true calling is to assist others in their journey towards healing and self-discovery. Whether it’s helping individuals find clarity, couples rekindle their love, or families reconnect, my passion lies in being a guiding light during life’s most challenging moments.

Join me on this extraordinary journey as we explore the intricate tapestry of the human experience, one session at a time.

Jana Gottesman

LCSW.

Monday to Saturday 9:00am- 7:00pm EST.

We all have a fundamental need to feel known, cared for and understood and I am honored to have a career in which I can be that person for others.

I have 15 years of clinical experience working with teens, young adults and adults. In addition to working with common mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, interpersonal challenges, etc., I have broader experience working with children of divorce, trauma, grief and LGBTQAI+ populations.

The therapeutic process is hard to explain and better to be experienced. As we feel known, cared for and understood by not only another but with time, ourselves, it’s a special kind of magic that can bring about deep healing and shifts. Topics and themes will present themselves during sessions and we will take time with them, using strategies and tools to develop awareness, understanding, insight and healing.

A little bit about me; I was born and raised in Miami, Florida and have also lived in Boston, Massachusetts and Boulder, Colorado. I am now back home, married and a mother of two wild and wonderful boys. Some things that I love are music, nature, hidden gems, good food, deep talks, movies, a good workout, and adventure!
