My name is Javonne Spivey and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, trauma, and relationship challenges.
My counseling style is genuine and validating. I am passionate about building therapeutic rapport with individuals to help them identify strengths as they work towards achieving personal goals. I believe therapy consists of a collaborative relationship and therefore I welcome feedback and encourage individuals to be an active participant in their treatment.
My approach to treatment combines cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. I am intentional about educating individuals about the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and highlighting the power of thoughts and self-talk. I am a Christian and I enjoy utilizing scripture to help individuals achieve wellness that will lead to greatness. I have experience with implementing bible plans in treatment to help individuals address depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and purpose.
I created a Christian mental wellness journal titled, Changing My Unhealthy Thoughts. The journal teaches the skills of utilizing scripture and taking thoughts captive to control and manage thinking patterns. The journal introduces a technique called prayerful thoughts. Prayerful thoughts are thoughts rooted in scripture. The journal encourages the reader to challenge unhealthy thoughts with scripture and replace unhealthy thoughts with prayerful thoughts.
I appreciate your interest in working with me and I am looking forward to listening to your story and building a therapeutic relationship. My mission is to help you achieve wellness that leads to greatness. Let’s get started!
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Career difficulties, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Life Purpose

Javonne created a super comfortable and engaging space for therapy. She listens intently, gives great insight, and helps notice/dive into topics that can be difficult for me to think of and express on my own. I really appreciate how encouraging and authentic she is. It's obvious that she genuinely cares and has a desire to support her clients.

I appreciate Javonne's approach. She is an excellent listener and allows me to get out what is built up inside, yet she keeps me on track getting to the core of what I want to target. I have been seeing her for a short time, however it has been very beneficial and I am looking forward to more sessions!

One year ago I was so unhappy with myself, my lifestyle, the world around me, nothing was going right for me. My loved one took it into his own hands and signed me up for therapy. When he told me I was super nervous, I had never done anything like this before, I wasn’t sure who I’d be talking to, what I’d even say or how it would even help me.. When I had my first session with Javonne I was pacing back and forth, nervous, scared, stressed, feeling all my emotions piled up. Javonne always made me feel heard, she always listened and she always gave me the best advice. I got so comfortable with Javonne and began to open up to her as if I’ve know her my own life. She is so calm and comforting, she’s kind and gentle, she’s the greatest gift I’ve ever received. With each session I become more vulnerable and I started to confide in her. She helped me so much by helping me see the potential in myself, she guided me to the path I always wanted to be on. I had asked her about helping me gain a better relationship with God and she did just that. She taught me, she listened to me, she made me feel important and worthy. I had the absolute best experience I could have ever had with Javonne Spivey, she is an incredible women that had the skills, patience and guidance to help the most lost soul. I couldn’t have been happier to have been matched with anyone else. I grew the best relationship with my myself, my loved ones, my life and God because of Javonnes help. Javonne is the best thing that happened to me during this chapter of my life. Glory be to God. ❤️
