Steve Miner MS-MFT, LPC
Marriage and Family Therapy
'No marriage or family is perfect. In fact, many people may even admit that their families are downright dysfunctional. Traditional families are not the only types of families that seem to have problems, however. Because marriages and families today come in all shapes and sizes, marital and family problems can affect all sorts of non-traditional families as well, including blended families, extended families, single parent families, and families with same-sex parents.
All different types of families might be affected by all different types of problems. There are, however, a few very common arguments that arise in many families, causing undue stress and problems. Some common arguments may be about infidelity, jealousy, financial disagreements, child rearing, household responsibilities, substance abuse, mental illness, teenage rebellion, various career paths, and more.'

Pam Brown, MS, LCPC
I have worked in the mental health field for just under 9 years. I almost feel like I have been preparing for this career since I was a child. However, my educational journey beyond high school started at Idaho State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in music. I then attended Northwest Nazarene Unversity and attained a Master of Science degree in School Counseling. I work outside of the school environment because I enjoy having more time with clients and the ability to advocate for them more fully on a deeper level.
Currently, I am working towards a certification in play therapy and also becoming certified in animal-assisted therapy in counseling. My (part-time for now) counseling partner, Lola, is a 2 year old Schnoodle who enjoys playing fetch, chasing birds and squirrels and also rolling around in whatever smells good to her at the time. She has her Canine Good Citizen certification which enables her to be a certified therapy animal.
I have experience working with toddlers, children, tweens/pre-teens, adolescents and adults of all ages. I lean towards a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy practice, as I have seen first hand how our thoughts can change how we feel. I also utilize Brief Solution Focused, Narrative, Art and Play therapies to name a few. I work with clients with a wide array of struggles including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, gender issues, autism, oppositional behavior, and family struggles among many others.
I look forward to meeting you!
