Every Person Deserves Peace Of Mind
We are a team of dedicated professionals reaching the Alaskan community.
Damito Owen, LPC-S, Therapist
Clinically I have experience in treating a variety of mental health issues. I use an integrative person centered approach that draws strongly from CBT, ACT, and Narrative Therapy to support you on your healing journey. I am a trauma informed therapist trained in EMDR, and other evidenced based psychiatric treatment modalities.
Maria Poulsen, LMSW Therapist
I will use narrative therapy to work collaboratively with you to assist in weaving the different pieces of your story into a cohesive whole that is understandable and meaningful. I use cognitive behavioral therapy to address ways of thinking that may be keeping you stuck and to help you find new, life-affirming ways to address issues that arise. I also use insight-oriented therapy and person-centered therapy to meet you exactly where you are in your narrative. I am trained in trauma-informed care, and my professional experience includes extensive work with adolescents and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, interpersonal struggles and behavioral challenges, as well as those in acute crisis situations.

Kam Altaffer, LCSW Therapist
I am a recovery oriented, client centered, strengths based clinician with over 15 years of mental health and substance use recovery experience in Alaska. I am trained in a number of evidenced based practices that include but are not limited to cognitive behavior techniques (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), narrative therapy with a trauma focus. I am flexible in my use of techniques and will work with you to meet your goals.
Gina Wall, LPC Therapist
With 15 years of counseling experience, I specialize in using both cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused approaches to help teens and their families navigate the choppy waters of adolescence. Moving from childhood to adulthood can be treacherous and anxiety provoking, but the journey is precious and should be handled with care. I am here to provide a safe and supportive space to help each individual find their unique purpose that will aid in personal growth and maturation.
I am graduate of the University of Alaska Anchorage and I have worked as a High School Counselor with the Anchorage School District for the past twelve years. Prior to my work with ASD, I worked with women and their families in residential and outpatient substance abuse treatment programs.
Life can be complicated and no one should go it alone. I look forward to hearing from you.
