  • CERTIFIED CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPIST

  • BOARD CERTIFIED TELEMENTAL HEALTH PROVIDER

I guess I’m an “elder” at 64, but I relate well with tweens, teens,  and adults. If you’re looking for a buddy, I’m pretty friendly and we can just sit and talk; but I’d much rather we roll up our sleeves and work side-by-side to improve your life and that of your family!

A Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I am experienced in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnotherapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), all of which can be done via secure video. I can help with conditions like Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety Disorders, Addictions, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, each of which is often related to past traumatic events.

A sex-positive counselor, I am a member of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, as well as the Secular Therapy Project. I do not “push” my values or beliefs and will respect yours.  Most importantly, I will not judge you, and will provide accurate information on this sensitive topic.

Master Addictions Counselor, I treat people as individuals and don’t automatically assume people having problems with alcohol, drugs, gambling, online gaming, sex, pornography, etc., are necessarily “addicted.” There are lots of other reasons people might have such difficulties.

DOT Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), I am qualified to oversee substance abuse treatment of drivers, pilots, etc.

COMMENT: One advantage of having been in the counseling field since the early 1980s is I’ve had time to get lots of training and experience, from which I hope my clients and their families can benefit.

Todd DeVries, LMSW

Todd found his way into the field of mental health after 25 years of working with people who have disabilities. He learned that all of us are just one misstep away from joining the largest minority population in the world. Fortunately, living with a disability need not be disabling! Resilience,creativity, new ways of thinking, and problem solving open doors to life's possibilities.
Todd is a licensed MSW and graduated as the oldest member of his graduating class. He believes self-redefinition is not only possible, but essential in our fast-changing world! Areas of interest are in solution-focused therapy, community development and people experiencing life transitions.Todd has presented on disability and technology issues at local, state and national venues.
Passions: Kayaking, cross country skiing, computers and how they change lives, reading books,listening to classical music, and interacting in meaningful ways with friends and neighbors.
Indulgences: Making a good cup of morning coffee, Rubin sandwiches, baseball games, dinner outwith friends, spending time at or on the ocean, and sleeping in a tent.
Dislikes: tomatoes, peanut butter, most commercial television, motorized off-road vehicles, people with unquestioned opinions, the NFL, NASCAR, and anything to do with carpentry.
Oh yes. Todd is blind. He uses a white cane, reads braille, owns lots of devices which talk, and plans to be the first person in Idaho to own a self-driving car.

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.'
