Jess O'Neil, LCPC NCC
Board Approved Supervisor
I'm glad you're here! My name is Jess and I have been in the mental health field for over 10 years in a variety of different settings. I am passionate about working with couples, parents/caregivers of young kiddos, professionals in the helping field, and athletes.
My goal is to help lessen your mental load so you can RISE to your full potential at home, work, and/or on the playing field. I operate from a trauma-informed approach and utilize EMDR, a treatment for trauma and stressor-related disorders, when appropriate.
I sincerely believe meaningful personal and professional growth occurs when we feel safe to be our genuine selves. Whether we are working through past traumas, current life circumstances, or future goals you can expect our meetings to be full of personal reflection, support, relief, and some humor/sarcasm when appropriate.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, biking, running... really anything outdoors! And as a busy parent myself, I also love nothing more than a good cup of coffee.
Casey Theriault, LCSW-C
Licensed to practice in MD & PA
Hello my name is Casey. I have been a therapist for about 7 years and in the human service field for over 20 years. I enjoy gardening, spending time with family/friends/pets and being outdoors in general. I come from a southern background which explains my therapeutic style. I am very personable but also very direct. I do not "sugar coat."
I am LGBTQ+ affirming and hold a strong belief that everyone has a right to choice!
I work mostly with adults & couples who are coping with the impact of trauma related stressors, OCD, depression, anxiety and professionals dealing with compassion fatigue. I pull from a few different styles of therapy to include solution-focused, CBT, and supportive counseling.

Hi I'm Jenn. I've been a self-proclaimed "nerd" since birth; I'm very creative, enjoy painting, sewing, jewelry making, Cosplay/Anime, and watching those true crime shows on the ID channel like every other therapist/social worker.
I particularly enjoy working with neurodiverse adolescents/teen and adults on acceptance, unmasking, and self esteem as well as individuals looking to resolve past trauma or explore avenues to safety, resilience, and increased self esteem. I have extensive experience working with Trauma, Intimate Partner Violence/Domestic Violence, the LGBTQIA population, Substance Use, and Women's issues. In addition to being licensed to practice and supervise LMSW's & LGPC's in MD & WV, I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional.

Kari Shumaker, LCPC
Hello! I'm Kari and I am the kiddo whisperer here at Rise. It helps that I'm a kid at heart and love baking, crafts, escape rooms and spending time with family in my free time.
I enjoy working with children & adolescents struggling with excessive worries, feelings of sadness/isolation, and/or difficult behaviors at home/school. Like my colleagues, I tailor my treatment approach to the specific client I am working with. I am trained in CBT but also use a client/family-centered approach to help increase positive interactions at home and school. I keep my sessions fun and engaging while also making sure there is a therapeutic purpose within each activity.
Alice Kinsey, LCPC
Hey there, I'm Alice!
I enjoy helping others and have done so in a variety of settings and roles for the past eight years. While I am a middle school counselor by day, I enjoy working with older teens and adults in the evenings. My experience with the school system gives me a unique perspective to help parents find information and resources to support themselves and their children. The beach, swimming, reading, puzzles, and being with my dogs, family, & friends gives me a sense of calmness and relaxation in my free time.
I work with clients to help them navigate all that life throws at us. Whether these challenges stem from family, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting, or school/work, I operate from a solution-focused approach while "digging deeper" when needed. My purpose is to validate your experiences in a judgment-free zone. Everyone has a voice and my goal is to help you find and use it!
