Meet the staff

Dr. Vanessa Brown, LP

I work hard to provide a space that conveys warmth, safety, and empowerment. If you are struggling with anxiety or depression, have questions about who you are or where you are going in life, or if you are feeling like you could really use someone to talk to, please consider making an appointment for us to sit together.

Clients tell me that I am good at challenging them to look deeper into the issue they are struggling. I emphasize using the resources that people have, whether it is family, creativity, or a sense of spiritual connectedness.

I have eight years experience as a humanistic psychotherapist.  The humanistic approach utilizes a holistic view of the individual and works to help each unique person develop their values, realize their potential, and increase their awareness of themselves and others.

Jonte Grasty, Massage Therapist

Jonte Grasty is a licensed massage therapist with over 8 years of experience. He is considered an eclectic massage therapist, which combines two or more systems of massage and bodywork into his own unique approach to manual therapy. His primary modality of massage is Integrated Deep Tissue. This form of massage treatment uses techniques from Deep Tissue and Myofascial Massage along with Neuromuscular Therapy to alleviate musculoskeletal imbalances.

Mr. Grasty enjoys working with clients to address the factors that affect their quality of living due to acute and chronic musculoskeletal imbalances. This person-centered massage approach maintains awareness of the whole person during a session, as opposed to focusing strictly on the pathology.

The primary massage framework Mr. Grasty uses is principle-based massage. Principle-based massage utilizes a broad base of knowledge and skills to plan a unique session or treatment strategy, as opposed to relying on a set of protocol or formula. This form of body-centered therapy involves methods of healing that work primarily through the physical body, but which affect the whole person– body, mind, emotions, and spirit.
