MENTAL HEALTH TEAM
Nicole Klepp, Psy.D.
Licensed Psychologist, Owner, Clinical Director
My experiences have taught me that developing a deeper understanding of oneself is important for learning, growing, and successfully reaching one's goals. One of my professional goals is to incorporate this philosophy into treatment by helping individuals focus on their strengths and solidify their belief systems. Self-exploration is only one portion of successful therapy though. In its entirety, treatment can help provide the foundation for life altering opportunities through a process that also involves mastering challenges and effectively adapting to the changes that naturally accompany growth and life.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic as I incorporate cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, mindfulness, visual imagery, and person-centered therapies to individuals and families based on my assessment of clients' needs. I work with children, adolescents, and adults presenting with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism spectrum, learning disabilities, memory problems, relational problems, and trauma. I also have experience in treating and evaluating individuals with neurobehavioral disorders, neurological disorders, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive impairments.
A large part of my practice is inclusive of conducting psychological and neuropsychological evaluations, in which typical referral questions involve concerns about attention, concentration, learning disabilities, memory, dementia, disruptive behavior, hyperactivity, social interactions, and self-care. I have done evaluations for educational purposes, disability determination, division of vocational rehabilitation, inpatient facilities, assisted and independent living facilities, and self- or family-referred individuals.

Jessi Baker, Psy.D
My passion for psychology started at a young age, in which I found myself drawn to listening to and helping others. Throughout my training, I have developed an integrative
approach to working with clients on various issues, incorporating elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, play therapy, and trauma-informed care.
My main goal in therapy is to provide clients with a supportive and caring environment that allows them to explore their emotions, experiences, and challenges. This means
adapting approaches and interventions to the client and their concerns. I have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with presenting concerns such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, ASD, relational difficulties, and self-esteem, and
have worked with clients in various settings including schools, in-home, and outpatient settings. I also have experience providing various interventions to clients including group therapy, individual psychotherapy, play therapy, behavioral therapy, and neuropsychological/psychological assessment. As a result, I try to consider all the elements in an individual’s life that may be impacting them to help them determine how to best function in their lives.
Brooke Miller, R-DMT
Dance/Movement Therapist, Psychotherapist
Movement is our first language. We start learning to communicate with our bodies before we are even born. It is a language we continue to use, often subconsciously, throughout our lives. Dance/movement therapy utilizes that first language in an effort to strengthen the mind/body/spirit connection, process our thoughts, feelings, and traumas, and develop healthy coping skills as we heal. Our body holds a wealth of knowledge, and can also house our emotional baggage. Dance/movement therapy offers a holistic approach to mental health as we integrate the mind, body, and spirit to meet psychosocial needs.
I hold a dual Master’s degree in Dance/Movement Therapy & Counseling and have worked with a wide variety of clients with a wide variety of needs. My practice has included work with infants and new mothers, toddlers, developing children, people with intellectual disabilities of all ages, adolescents, adults, and individuals with dementia and their caretakers. My areas of therapeutic focus include development, depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance use and abuse, identity, loss, and communication issues. My approach is very person centered and focuses on the integration of talk and body-based therapy to manage stress, cultivate mindfulness, and address individual needs.

She meets with individuals presenting with many different problems, including anxiety disorders, depression, stress related issues, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, etc. Her specialty is hoarding disorder.
Samantha Olson, MA, LMFT, SAC-IT
I practice Marriage and Family Therapy and provide a safe and secure environment. Marriage and family therapy is way for couples and families to gather together, with a neutral individual, that will help guide the interactions of all the individuals involved. I believe that identifying family patterns and dynamics is an important part of therapy, and I tend to incorporate psychoeducation and mindfulness practices. I primarily utilize solution-focused therapy, family systems theory, cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness as my therapeutic models. I have experience working with children (ages 10 and up), adolescents, adults, couples, and families who have suffered from anxiety, Depression, ADHD, family conflict, stress, adjustment difficulties, self-harm, AODA, LGBTQ, self-esteem issues, PTSD etc. I have a variety of certifications, including Prepare- Enrich, a martial and pre-marital program. I form my therapeutic interactions around the client’s specific needs.
Alyssa Trampf, MS,OTR/L, LPC-IT
For thousands of years, art has been a tool for communication, self-expression, and healing. Creating art can help people explore emotions, improve self-awareness, manage stress, increase self-esteem, and strengthen social skills. Art therapy is a unique and creative way to express, explore, and process our experiences.
As a Master's level trained Art Therapist and Counselor, my goal is to 'journey with' clients in a collaborative partnership based on respect and authenticity. Unlike a traditional art class, I believe in the powerful process of creating rather than focusing on a finished product. My approach to therapy is multimodal and holistic as I view each person as the expert of their own life story. My areas of therapeutic focus include eating disorders, grief, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and life transitions. Together we can tap into the deep well of creativity using art's healing abilities.
Angel Mak, LPC
Angel Mak offers individual and family therapy for individuals of all ages, spanning from adults to children. Her practice embodies a holistic and integrative philosophy, striving to promote healing and personal development. She holds a deep commitment to delivering trauma-informed and culturally responsive care, driven by her unwavering passion for well-being and growth.
My journey to becoming a therapist was a response to providing culturally responsive healing opportunities to people in need. I was drawn to understanding trauma and its impact, particularly interpersonal trauma often inflicted repeatedly by loved ones. I am grateful for the opportunity to have received training on how to listen, attune to clients, and facilitate healing by creating a safe space for self-discovery and personal growth. Therapy training has been rewarding and beneficial, not only for my clients but also for me. Bringing it to the present day, I am honored to support my clients as they navigate through challenging times and witness their flourishing on their journeys to wellness.
Regarding my therapeutic approach, I embrace a strength-based, trauma-informed, culturally rooted, and biopsychosocial integrative framework aimed at alleviating stress and suffering. In a holistic manner, I draw upon techniques from various therapeutic modalities, including interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), family systems therapy, and attachment theory. I firmly believe that our profession demands ongoing learning. Consequently, I maintain an open mindset and actively seek out new modalities that align with my clients' needs.
As I near the completion of my doctoral training in counseling psychology, I am enthusiastic about the intersection of neuroscience and clinical practice. Specifically, my interest lies in enhancing brain functions, promoting brain plasticity, and fostering the creation of new neural pathways to support behavioral change. I offer psychoeducation to assist clients in understanding the scientific aspects of their treatment, enabling them to gain awareness of their healing progress.
Victoria Ducoffe LPC-IT
I entered the field of therapy with the hope that people can find solace from their worlds in the space that we create together. My goal as a therapist is to establish an environment where people experience safety and acceptance. I strive to maintain a connection of genuine collaboration and curiosity in the effort to allow each client to have their story heard and their journey to healing explored. I hold a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and have experience working with individuals of all ages, from children and adolescents, to adults, couples, and families as they navigate the challenges they face with trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD, self-esteem, and more. I utilize a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches in my work in order to allow every individual the opportunity to find a technique that is suited for their growth. I am trained in Brainspotting, a therapeutic technique designed to help individuals process and heal from trauma and emotional distress. I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness techniques into my practice. This eclectic approach allows me to tailor my treatment to the unique needs of each client. I am dedicated to holding space for you and I will be alongside you every step of the way!
Claire Rosen, MS, OTR/L
I believe play is the most important “occupation” for a child and it is the foundation of all developmental skills. Fostering a child’s ability to play, attend and learn by supporting or treating his/her weaknesses is a passion of mine. As an OT I am able to help children better learn to regulate their nervous system to allow for improved frustration tolerance, attention, emotional control and participation in daily life skills. Through play we also improve fine motor and gross motor coordination, strength and visual perceptual skills building confidence along the way. To be able to help children and adults live their life to their full potential is rewarding for me.
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Occupational Therapy. Over my time as a practicing OT, I have obtained additional certifications and specialty education to target sensory processing, executive function, attention and behavioral concerns. I am certified in The Therapeutic Listening Program, Interactive Metronome and Infant Massage. I have taken many additional trainings to address picky eating and problem feeding, emotional regulation and also use principals from a variety of Sensory Integration Theorists within my day-to-day practice. I believe in treating the whole child and that each child is unique. Through my experience it is clear that there are many ways to solve a problem and make a difference. Therefore, success is best found by getting to know each child and his/her environment in which they thrive and focusing on his/her strengths.
Brittany Almire, MS,OTR/L
I am an Occupational Therapist with experience working with individuals of all abilities across the lifespan at home, in the community, and in academic settings. I am passionate about building relationships with individuals to understand their needs and interests in order to create and help them reach their goals. My mission is to increase the quality of life for individuals by helping them develop skills to lead a purposeful and meaningful life. In my practice I accomplish this by addressing independence, daily living skills, social skills, sensory needs, and social-emotional development.
Morgan Bushke, MS,OTR/L
I completed my undergraduate and graduate program through Concordia University Wisconsin. Since then I have gained experience working with individuals across the lifespan before joining the Integrative Psyche family. As an occupational therapist I am passionate about working with individuals to explore activities and occupations that are meaningful to them. I emphasize meeting kids where they are at to build upon their strengths to help increase their independence and function within meaningful activities. Through use of play-based interventions, as an OT I am able to work with children to support their sensory needs, motor coordination and executive function skills to grow participation and independence with everyday activities. I believe that building relationships with children and their families while providing the support they need to reach their goals is key to increasing function and independence with daily activities. My favorite quote that embodies what we do in occupational therapy is “Children learn as they play. More importantly, in play children learn how to learn”. -O. Fred Donaldson
Kris Krysa, MS, OTR/L
I am an Occupational Therapist who is driven to improve the lives of those who I work with. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds to improve their engagement in life. With children I enjoy the use of play and life based scenarios to develop the skills necessary to navigate and interact with the world around us. With adults I try to facilitate each client's internal motivation to reach their goals using tasks and activities that apply to their life. Occupational therapy provides me the opportunity to partner with clients to address areas in which they and/or their families would like to grow. I have experience working with children and teens to reach developmental milestones, identify compensatory strategies, identify sensory needs, and address areas of motor coordination and executive function for increased independence in everyday life. There is no greater joy than seeing a client achieve their goals!
Meredith Mutza, M.S. CCC-SLP
Speech and Language Pathologist
I am a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. I have always enjoyed working with children. I tutored younger children in middle school and high school, was a camp counselor for a YMCA camp during the summers in college and mentored children on the autism spectrum in college. When I graduated as a Speech-Language Pathologist, I knew that I wanted to work with children. I began my career as a Speech-Language Pathologist at a small Pediatric outpatient clinic in Wisconsin Rapids. When I relocated to South-Eastern Wisconsin, I worked in the school setting. I love helping others communicate to their best potential.
As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I help clients improve their skills with receptive and expressive language, articulation, social communication, swallowing, fluency, voice, cognition and communication modalities. My favorite part about being a Speech-Language Pathologist is watching children have their "lightbulb" moment, when they have a moment of clarity and understand a concept that they have struggled with in the past. I think of communication as a precious gift, every person should be able to express their thoughts and opinions with their loved ones and with the world. Therapy sessions with me are mainly play-based. I believe that learning should be fun and I relish bringing communication concepts into games and free play activities.

I am a Speech Language Pathologist Clinical Fellow. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and my graduate degree at Concordia University of Wisconsin. I conduct evaluations and treatment of all ages; however, I have always enjoyed working with children. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I help people of all ages improve their skills with expressive and receptive language, social communication, cognition, articulation, swallowing, voice, and fluency. Most of my treatment sessions are play-based. I believe therapy should be fun and functional to relate to everyday activities! In my free time, I love to read, spend time outside, and hang out with my niece and nephews.
