About Us

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 parents/caregivers of young kiddos, professionals in the helping field, and athletes.

My goal is to help lessen the mental load you are carrying so you can RISE to your full potential at home, work, and/or on the playing field.  I am trained in EMDR, Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. As a Board Approved Supervisor, I also offer individual and group supervision & consultation. I deeply 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.

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.

Board Approved Supervisor
licensed to practice in md & wV

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.
