Healing Waters Counseling
Healing Waters Counseling

Healing Waters Counseling opened in October, focusing on affordable fees, discounts to seniors and military families, as well as flexible scheduling, including Saturdays, said officials. After a local non-profit had to close its doors due to lack of funding, several employees came together to continue their service to the community and provide family and individual counseling, affordable court ordered anger management classes, support groups and Lunch and Learn programs.   

“Our mission here was based on the years of service we all have had serving our community, interacting with those in need of supportive counseling and court ordered anger management classes," said Nancy Rose, JD, LCSW, clinical director.  "Finding affordable fees with scheduling options that can accommodate work schedules and childcare issues was always a major concern."

Ms. Rose, who has a law degree, was a parole and probation officer and is a licensed clinical social worker works with children, adolescents and adults and also conducts court ordered Anger Management classes. “We are fortunate to have Gary R. Mauldin, Ph.D., to join us. Dr. Mauldin is a licensed marriage and family therapist and will be seeing clients as well as teaching the anger management classes. A former colleague of mine, Bill Reynolds, LCSW, will also be seeing clients at Healing Waters.

"Bill is a licensed clinical social worker, and does family and individual counseling and will be also be seeing EAP referrals.

“We are so grateful to those who have helped us and encouraged us in this endeavor and look forward to continuing our years of service by providing professional, compassionate care. That is our mission that we all take very seriously.” 

For scheduling options, class registration or Lunch and Learn topics, please contact: Lynn I. Wilkes, director of Community Outreach, 698-5090 or email her at yourhealingwaters@att.net. 

“Our next anger management class is Dec. 14, a Saturday, from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., and we still have several slots open and encourage those who need classes before the end of the year to contact me as soon as possible,” said Ms. Rose.  Ms. Wilkes also advises that those who only want to complete four hours of the eight hour class, due to work or childcare issues, can arrange to do that and complete the other four hours individually or in another class at a later date.
