Amme Koehler, BSW
Foster Care Home Supervisor
My goal is to increase the well-being of all community members through listening, showing support and genuine empathy towards others, and advocating for the improvement of life for individuals, families, and social injustices within our community. I firmly believe that people who experience challenges in life deserve to be shown compassion and kindness because they are human and deserve a chance to succeed. It is important to support others who may need to learn the skills to support to help themselves when dealing with the challenges of life.
After spending my whole life as part of a military family, I have come to realize the incredible struggle families can experience and would like to share the skills of resilience with others. I am a graduate of Salisbury University, class of 2017 with a Bachelor’s in Social Work (BSW). Currently, I work with foster and adoptive homes as the Foster Care Program Manager to manage licensed homes and help families navigate the SAFE Home Study, license, foster and adoption process. It is my pleasure to assist families as they work through the fostering and adoption process as their first line of support on this incredible journey.

Providing quality therapy is not just a career for me, it is my passion. I believe that healing is more than just the physical aspect found in most modern healthcare approaches. It is a combination of balance, or wholeness: mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Overall wellness comes from within, and everyone has the ability to break free from past, and present, negativity. Our past experiences should teach us, not control us. I am committed to providing a completely confidential therapeutic environment; I understand the importance behind this. I enjoy working with children, teens, couples, and families not only as a whole, but as individuals as well. Families are like an intricate machine with multiple moving parts; each part is unique and has a different function. If the parts don’t work together, the system begins to breakdown. I appreciate and understand this complexity, and enjoy being part of the systems development, discovery, and growth towards happiness. I also find great value in helping couples restore friendship with one another, increase their ability to effectively communicate, as well as learn how to successfully navigate through marital disagreement and conflict. Lastly, one of my specialties is working with teens who do not want to engage/participate in therapy. I have much success with these adolescents and assisting them in identifying clarity in their path forward.
Whitney Moore, MA, LPCc
My goal as a therapist is to allow others to be heard. Many times, having a voice is enough to start making the changes that you wish see within yourself. I want to develop and build a trusting relationship with my clients, so they feel safe and comfortable sharing their life story with me. It is my passion to listen to clients and help empower them to find the inner strength to overcome life’s obstacles and make effective changes. My clinical approach is custom tailored to meet the needs of each unique individual, providing comfortable and safe environment that builds on the skills and strengths that someone already may possess.
I have spent my life as a member of a military family, and then went on to join the military myself. This is my second career and I have found my true passion in this field. My many experiences have shaped who I am today as a person as well as a therapist. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in individual and family therapy. I have a true passion for working with the military population, teens, young adults, and adults.

My goal as a therapist is to give space to others so they can feel heard and express themselves in ways they might not be able to. I want to develop a trusting relationship with my clients so they can feel comfortable and be themselves as well as work through anything they might need. The therapeutic process looks different for everyone, so my main clinical approach is to adapt to what my client needs and how best to highlight their strengths. My passion is to provide my clients with tools they may need in life that they may not have access to or to help them relearn tools lost along the way.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCc) who specializes in working with individuals, adolescents, teens, children, families, and couples. I am certified in providing Nurturing Parenting class as well.

Brittanie Thebeau, LPCc
My main goal is to provide a supportive therapeutic environment to empower clients to grow and make effective changes in their lives. To foster a warm, comfortable setting for my clients, I employ a compassionate, non-judgmental approach that offers a relaxed environment to facilitate healing and start the process of change. My clinical approaches are tailored to meet the unique needs each client has while also building on their current strengths. Reaching out for support can often feel overwhelming, however, everyone deserves the chance to explore the underlying struggles that may be impacting daily living, contentment, and happiness.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC) with experience working with children, adolescents, and adults providing individual therapy. Working with children (3 years and up) is my joy. I am currently working towards certification to become a Registered Play Therapist. I look forward to helping you on your way towards personal growth and emotional well-being.

I am currently getting my master’s in social work. I work with individuals and families through therapy services and supervised visitations. I hope to provide clients with a safe environment where they can trust me with their experiences to assist them with identifying their strengths to overcome these challenges.
My goal in therapy is to help children, parents, and families in my community. I seek to help them feel heard and provide them with tools or help them realize the tools they already possess. I strive to build a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients and an environment within which they feel safe and comfortable. I work with children, individuals, and families.
My goal is to help create an environment in which families and children can thrive, as well as supporting them in effectively growing and make changes toward their best life. I do so with compassion, and a love for helping others. I am currently working toward my BS in Human Development and Family Relations, which I will use to deepen my understanding of families and widen the support I can offer to them.
