I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of experience working as a counselor and employee assistance professional. I see therapy as a collaborative process and invite clients to take an active role in their treatment. I focus on managing symptoms, facilitating empowerment, building confidence as well as teaching the tools necessary to allow for clients to be their personal best and creating an overall sense of well-being.
My approach to counseling is warm and empathetic. I pride myself on treating everyone with kindness, respect, and sensitivity. I focus on building trust as well as open and honest communication in the therapeutic relationship to help each client achieve their goals and feel as though they are maximizing their full potential.
Also, I am a military veteran and understand the stress and trauma associated with military service. I possess a unique insight into the military lifestyle and it is important to have a therapist that understands your needs and the military lifestyle.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I've found that Dr. E keeps sessions and the plan of therapy direct and to-the-point. While change is always challenging, I thank her for helping me shift my perspective, adopt a positive mindset, and improve my emotional intelligence.
Dr. Easterling is a wonderful counselor, helpful and understanding with a wealth of experience. She helped me work through work related stress and anxiety, worry, and even smaller things like boundaries and procrastination. I would highly recommend her especially for work related stress.
Dr. Easterling is a very effective and professional counselor. Her approach was solution-oriented and focused on real application I was able to make. She helped improved my mindset and get a firm hold on many different problems to improve my life. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Easterling has a non judgemental listening ear and she offers real solutions to cope with stress and problem solving. I have a lot of stress due to work and she has been a great help with helping me separate work from home. I had no idea work was consuming so much of me after hours until our sessions. I am learning to turn work mode off, decompress, and find balance. I appreciate Dr. Easterling and I'm sure my family does too.
Dr. Easterling is very professional, active listener with great feedback. I am glad that I get to work with her.
Dr Easterling has been invaluable in helping me change my relationship to social anxiety, and I have noticed an increase in confidence over the past 4 months. She is a good listener and made sure I stayed on track in and out of the sessions, offering gentle reminders and summaries of the tools we were using. I felt Dr Easterling clearly understood my trouble spots, and was able to bring me back again and again to the tools I was learning, helping me to develop positive new habits and uncover fresh perspectives. I have learned a lot in these past months and this was made possible due to the professionalism and expertise of Dr Easterling.
Dr Easterling has been incredible! Her experienced, wise and measured response to my challenging schedule, needs and lifestyle have been hugely appreciated. She listens with intent and with a few insightful, targeted questions, was able to help me to focus on the heart of my issues.
Her daily communications are great and always included relevant tasks or exercises to support our talk sessions. I truly feel like I’m leading the way to a better me rather than being lead down a pre-prescribed path.
Dr. E has been fantastic and very knowledgable, getting me to a much better spot in a short amount of time. Highly recommended.
Dr. Easterling has proven to be a truly dedicated therapist in the short amount of time I have worked with her. She has gone out of her way to provide help for me, been accommodating for scheduling conversations and responds quickly to all messages. Equally as importantly, she has asked the required questions to clarify the goals we have for me to make sure we are on the same page and working together.
Dr. E is so great-she knows just the right thing to say at the right time to encourage me and set me straight. I really appreciate her and value her expertise .
