Jennifer Emch, M.Ed, LPCC-S, OWNER

Jennifer is a Supervising Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (E. 0500507-SUPV) in the State of Ohio. She is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), Motivational Interviewing and other cognitive behavioral strategies to help alleviate symptoms that reduce optimal personal functioning. 

Terry Campbell, M.Ed, LPC

Terry is a Licensed Professional Counselor with the State of Ohio (C.1400176). He works with a diverse population including children, adolescents, and adults.  His specialties include, but are not limited to, treating depression and other mood disorders, anxiety, substance abuse / addiction, adhd, and adjustment disorders.  We all experience difficulties in life and a formal diagnosis is not necessary to benefit from counseling.  Working through these difficulties with a therapist can be extremely beneficial and rewarding, providing insight, strength, empathic support, and leading to improvements in overall functioning. 

Barbara Emch

Barbara Emch has been a student of spiritual and personal development and the esoteric arts for most of her adult life.  One of her beloved teachers has been longtime friend and guru, Reverend Connie Vinci, from whom she received her Reiki master training in the Mikao Usui system. Barb’s approach to her Reiki practice comes from a life-long desire to serve and support others and to be a conduit of love and peace. Through the gentle placement of hands on the clothed body, a Reiki session will restore the body’s balance of Ki, the primary energy of one’s emotions, thoughts, and spiritual life.

Christelle is a Licensed Professional Counselor (C.1500827) in the State of Ohio. She currently is a full-time clinician at Family Pride of Northeast Ohio and has joined Ubuntu Wellness as a part-time therapist.

Melanie Hale

Melanie fell in love with yoga in 2004 while searching for some peace and well-being in her life. She completed the RYT 200 hour Yoga Certification with Todd Norian and Anne Green in 2012 and began spreading the joy of yoga so that others can feel the healing effects of this practice. 


Shellie is a clinical therapist in the mental health field who works with children and adults. In an effort to increase her own self-care and wellness, she began to study the use of essential oils. Shellie has found Young Living to be an excellent resource and has found much success in incorporating essential oils not only into her daily life, but also in helping her clients to establish an emotional balance through the use of aromatherapy. She looks forward to sharing not only her personal experience, but her passion for helping others gain increased wellness in their mind, body, and spirit.

She is motivated and moved emotionally by the deep positive impact mindfulness can and will have on future generations. She is pursuing more graduate work in the fall.

Danielle Wonkovich

Danielle has practiced yoga for over 12+ years but it was a series of difficult life events beginning in 2013 that taught her what the practice meant off the mat. As her physicality, relationships, career, and home deteriorated, Danielle was left depressed and confused. Persistent physical discomfort, a debilitating depletion of energy, and nagging questions about her purpose lead her - in desperation – to seek relief through Reiki. The profound results that followed lead Danielle to study complimentary wellness techniques as a means to rebuild her sense of self (and her yoga) from the inside out.
