Hello, thank you for taking the time to get to know us. I am the founder and CEO of Telebehavioral Health.US. I was the first clinician to reverse engineer a completely digital healthcare organization by adopting this nationally supported telebehavioral health model in the United States.
I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and and Trauma Informed Care. My favorite thing to do besides roller skate is help others understand how our brains impact our thoughts, feelings and actions. I live in Michigan with my two children and our dog, Bear. In the summer you can find me on the skate trail and in the winter I hibernate.

Reaching out for help when we are at our lowest is one of the most valiant acts of bravery we can accomplish. My name is Jessica. I identify as a cis-female ally, preferring she/her/hers pronouns. I have a passion for helping others unlock potential in their personal and professional lives by assisting them in overcoming mental hurdles. Working with me looks like a partnership identifying areas of need/improvement followed by creating a workable treatment plan. I look forward to welcoming you into a therapeutic space where you’re comfortable to express yourself without judgement, while learning crucial skills to help improve the quality of your mental health.
Jessica Cieslak, LLMSW
I think we can all agree, life is hard! The most honest, brave, powerful, and difficult thing we can do is reach out for support. Kudos to you for starting this courageous (and maybe scary) process! Needing support does not mean you are weak or broken, it means you are human. Our work together will begin with recognizing the synergistic relationship between the mind, body, and soul, and how this interplay impacts one's overall well-being. My goal as a therapist is to help you feel safe and comfortable to be you. I am a strong believer in the science behind the healing power of laughter. I find it useful in session to disarm fears and cultivate safety and build trust. In our work together we will cultivate a safe space to explore internal narratives and core beliefs keeping you from being your best self and explore tools and skills that work for you to be able to take on whatever life throws at you

Through professional and personal experience, I believe together we can accomplish amazing things. I have a diverse background of trauma training, grief and loss, and working with individuals who are terminally ill. Throughout my 12 years of being a clinical social worker and a therapist I have a tremendous amount of experience with children, families, teenagers, and adults. By building a relationship on trust and confidence I look forward to serving clients through telehealth to meet their individual needs. I truly believe in the power of therapy and what it can achieve to find inner calm and happiness. The first step is reaching out and believing change is possible. I am beyond excited to start this journey with you.
Amy Mansfield, LMSW
I strongly believe that we all have unique strengths, challenges and life stories, and I work from a person centered approach above all else. The foundation of our work together is the unique relationship that we are able to build to achieve the goals you have for yourself. I see you as the expert in your life while I’m here to walk alongside you to remove barriers, provide tools, skills and a safe space to meet your needs. Struggling and suffering are innately a part of life, however, we don’t have to remain in this space forever. It is my passion to help others find healing, meaning and freedom in moving through and past painful, difficult or challenging life spaces. Our work together is without judgment and I value honoring your individuality as we create a safe space where vulnerability, healing and growth are welcomed with genuine compassion, care and partnership. I look forward to working together wherever you are in your life to bring about healing, freedom and a greater sense of self.
Trisha Waun, LMSW
I have 11 years of professional practice and nearly 40 years in personal experience. I am human. I have failed. I have made mistakes. And I have had my own growth journey, one that we are all capable of achieving. I truly believe that the key to a fruitful therapeutic relationship is authenticity. I value realness and asking the hard questions, while recognizing that I too, also have weaknesses and flaws. If you are seeking an austere, untouchable authority, I am not the therapist for you. However, if in your therapeutic experience, you hope to gain a collaborator in open and frank dialogue and solutions, I may be what you are searching for. I want to help you identify your inner strengths, potential, and strategies to find your way in unearthing the person that you know you are destined to be. In the words of EVI: “I know I was born and I know that I'll die. The in between is mine. I am mine."

As we work to identify obstacles in life and tools to change and improve our well-being, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute. Taking an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find childcare, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Having therapy from your own home allows more time in your schedule. In the era of digital technology, we have reached, we are able to have confidential care without the need to commute. When treatment is more accessible it is easier to address the problems, we face before they become unmanageable. I look forward to working together in finding ways to thrive in life and for self-discovery. If you are looking to move forward in life, you have found the right place.

Life can be challenging and sometimes it is helpful to have assistance in working through those challenges. Whether you are experiencing a new challenge, or have one you have been avoiding, therapy can be helpful in untangling your thoughts, helping you to think critically about the topic, or help you to see things that you may have missed. Therapy can also help you to better understand how your life experiences have impacted your current abilities and challenges. I enjoy collaborating with individuals of all ages. I utilize a variety of evidence-based interventions in partnership with a strength-based, person-centered approach to assist people in developing goals and finding ways to achieve them. I have experience working with youth, families, trauma, and neurodiversity. I enjoy helping people better understand their emotions, develop healthy coping techniques, and improve their skills at building and maintaining positive relationships.
Beth Summerix, LLMSW

I'm so glad that you've reached out for help. No matter what you are going through, know that I am here to listen, support and help you figure it out. Every day is a new opportunity to start over again! I work closely with my clients to explore any underlying unhelpful thoughts that lead to difficulties, and to challenge and change these thoughts so you can start to feel better and begin living again. I truly love being a therapist, helping and connecting with others. I look forward to working with you!
Hollie Andrews, LMSW, CAADC
Helping others come to their solutions, honoring their autonomy, building a trusting relationship and being our authentic selves. I have always felt the opportunity to help those experiencing a significant loss is a very sacred thing and an honor to be able to walk alongside those overcoming their fear and finding strength, healing and peace. In my free time, I love quilting, baking, riding horses and the constant company of my three dogs, Murphy, Teddy, and Lexy.
Sharon VanTuyle, LMSW
My heart's desire is to walk alongside people when life is hard (because it is hard for everyone, at some point) and help them find the peace and joy they desire. My foundation, my rock is Faith and that is at the core of who I am. But I know that is not everyone’s truth and I have worked with so many people who have different beliefs. When I worked in hospice, there was always a spiritual component, we always asked patients what their meaning of life is. Whatever that is for you, I want to walk along side of that. My experience as a coach, a youth leader, an oldest of four daughters. I have seen so many young girls seeking for something that is missing. Seeking for a sense of belonging, seeking for Love and sense of worthiness. I want to help you discover that. I want to walk this hard journey with you. We are not meant to do this life alone.

It takes a lot of strength and courage to seek out therapy. Life can be challenging at times. My name is Maggie Meister (she/her/hers). I enjoy helping others by creating a safe space, building a therapeutic relationship, listening, understanding, and allowing you to unpack your emotions. As a clinician, I use evidence-based/informed practices to achieve the goals you have set. Our sessions will be from the comfort of your own home on a virtual platform where you can express your emotions and yourself without judgement. I work with adolescents and adults that struggle with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Life Transitions, and Self-esteem. I graduated from Siena Heights University with a bachelor's degree in applied science in 2011. I am in the process of completing a master's degree at Siena Heights University in Community Mental Health Counseling by May 2022. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. I love to travel and experience new adventures. Lastly, I like to go boating with friends and family. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your therapy goals.
I believe relationships are the key to any therapeutic work, especially work with adolescents. Empathy and positive regard are extremely important when working with this often-misunderstood population. I have worked with adolescents and young adults to address a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, self-esteem, substance use, trauma, identity, and grief. My training in evidence-based practices allows me to integrate Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Practices, and Positive Youth Development into treatment. My therapy style is strengths-based, person-centered, and trauma-informed, meaning my work can be individualized to meet the unique needs of a variety of people. I am so happy that you found me, and I look forward to working together. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or to schedule your appointment.

I was raised in a small community, with a deep love for family and nature. My own first experience in counseling confirmed ideas I always felt deep inside but had no words to describe. Learning about healthy self-development and relationships changed my life and created a passion to share this knowledge with others.
Human beings were made for connection, and my work with clients is based on relational neuroscience - the study of how each life experience has shaped our brains and behavior. From birth until death, we seek safe, responsive relationships necessary for stable, healthy, happy lives. Difficult experiences can affect physical, mental, and emotional health and development. My goal is to create a safe space where clients can explore their closest attachments, life experiences, thoughts and beliefs, their strengths, their challenges and traumas (whether big or small) and to consider how all of these have interacted to influence their capacity to lead optimal, abundant lives. Together we pursue their own inner wisdom, insights, new life strategies, and healing.
