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!

Javonne Spivey is wonderful, she doesn't try and tell you what to feel and I appreciate that. She just talks to me, uses worksheets and certain questions to help guide me through my thought process so that I can discover the answers I'm looking for myself, and then helps me talk about how those answers make me feel in the end. She is easy to talk to, she's professional, she's friendly, and she's good at her job. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

I am continually blown away by Javonne's ability to pick out important pieces of information from my stream-of-consciousness talking! Her questions are poignant and spot on. I am growing so much as a person thanks to her help!

Javonne is the best therapist I've found. She has incredible insight and really good listening skills. Some of her responses to me have stuck with me enough to make a really big impact on my life.
