Mary-Eileen Hahn

LCMHC (Shallotte & Telehealth) 

“Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brene Brown

You have a story, uniquely your own. Inviting someone to know, share and explore your story in order to illuminate truths both wonderful and difficult is the courageous work of therapy. My goal is encouragement, growth, and freedom for you, attending to the light within you. As God is the creator of light and promises to be with us in times of darkness, my presence with you in the therapy room is inspired and informed by this truth.

 

Rob Moser

Rob uses different therapeutic approaches to meet you in your situation; however, Rob believes that the essential ingredient for change lies within a Spirit-filled alliance created to walk life’s path together. 

Tracey Sink

LCMH (Jacksonville & Telehealth)

Hello! My name is Tracey, and I am currently a Graduate-Level Intern who is working
toward Licensure as a Licensed Counselor with Mental Health (LCMH). I am passionate about

experiences such as grief, difficult parenting, and careers. Sometimes you can just feel stuck,
low, or at a loss as to what to do in your life to take the next step. My goal is for you to move
through the therapy process, problem-solve, and find God in your story in a safe space and
without judgment.

Ward Farrior

LCSWA (Jacksonville & Telehealth)

I am excited for the opportunity to walk with you in this current season as we progress towards your personal goals and aspirations. I believe having someone to process life with that understands the importance of creating a safe relational environment by ensuring you are supported, understood, and shown genuine curiosity goes a long way in helping us resolve the problems we face. Many of my clients appreciate my direct approach that isn’t afraid to hold you accountable to your goals, ask challenging questions that help you refine your beliefs, and encourage you to become your best. My biggest passion in therapy is exploring and understanding the various forms of relationship and how intertwined these dynamics are on every area of our life. Relationship is not just between us and others, its also how we see ourselves and relate to God. Many times talking through these parts of our lives lead to trails that highlight why we have painful cycles, where our negative self views came from, misunderstandings of what is and isn’t our responsibility, and many other relational complications that create depression, anxiety and stress in our lives. It is very fulfilling to see how adjusting the way we see our relationship with God, self and others reveals untapped opportunities for growth in confidence, self understanding, and an overall sense of peace.
