Our Therapists

Maria Serrao Britt, MS, MEd, Licensed Psychologist 

Maria Serrao Britt

Maria's authentic gift of compassion continually draws her to seek out and share the good she finds within her clients.  She calls upon her professional training and experience to build in herself and others the ability and the willingness to honestly find and face the root causes of whatever issues hold one back.  We know her as an active listener who urges minds and hearts toward insight, healing and gaining a right spirit of peace. 

We feel that what she's had to say about her approach to counseling pretty captures a good bit of what we are all about. Here's what she said:

"My goal is to help you realize your gifts and abilities and to help you celebrate the life you have been given.  While the difficult situations of the past can't be changed, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges you currently face.  By applying balanced therapeutic approaches and techniques, together we will address all levels of your experience: psychologically, socially and spiritually.  I will walk with you as you unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative thinking that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

"Whether you're looking for support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, I am looking forward to working with you."


Dianne Michels, MS, LPC, NCC, CVRT, CLVT, TVI 

Dianne Michels & FamilyWe are proud to count Dianne as our colleague.  In addition to being a top-notch therapist, she's a skilled educator and lecturer, and she's an active expert advisor to leaders and members of the community, especially among the vision-impaired.   We were so impressed with Dianne's many accomplishments and ongoing activities, that frankly, we're still a bit surprised that she's only one woman.

Dianne exudes a gentle spirit matched perhaps only by her faithful guide-dog companion Samantha.  We believe she is giftedly empathetic. She'll likely just say she's a good listener. Whatever the reason, she brings her remarkable sensitivity, perception and kindness to bear as she works along with her clients.  She takes joy in seeing healing come to clients' spiritual, emotional and overall mental health.

If you're troubled; if you can't see how to move forward; if you aren't sure of the road ahead, we believe Dianne can help you walk through it. She'll walk with you. Here's what Dianne has to say about what she wants for her therapy and counseling clients:  

"My desire is to walk along side you, to encourage you and to assist you. I want to help you overcome whatever problems life throws at you and those you've encountered along the way.  I am committed to working with you as we discover how to meet life's situations.   I believe in assisting you as you find your strength to move forward.  I use a variety of therapeutic approaches— and enjoy helping you to succeed. 

Sometimes life may seem unfair, but I believe that working together can help you move forward. I am here to empower you to apprehend a richer, an even more meaningful life."
