Mike Diller, LPC, NCC 

I am professionally licensed in Missouri and Illinois and I am also a National Certified Counselor with 15 years experience in the counseling field.  I received my MA from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Primary Specializations and Approach

  • Restoring Marriages Intimacy and happiness in marriage is much more than living a life together and successfully avoiding divorce.  It is about growing a marriage that reflects loving affection, intimacy, and partnership.  Healing relationships starts by learning how to communicate love and understanding so that both spouses feel validation and acceptance by one another.  Proving to each other who is “right and wrong” rarely helps.  My approach focuses on decreasing the defensiveness that prevents us from listening and considering each other’s needs.  Building an emotional connection paves the way for personal change, making for a mutually healthy relationship that is dynamic and satisfying.
  • Depression / Anxiety Depression and anxiety can be disabling and often misunderstood by spouses, family, and friends.  It becomes complicated when we try to evaluate the problem from both a spiritual and emotional perspective.  Along with facilitating a renewed hope for change, we find it necessary to help the individual understand the impact of faith, emotional, and physical elements that play a part in the healing process.
  • Sexual Integrity Sexual addiction and pornography destroy relationships and promote shame and spiritual bondage.  Unfortunately, men within the church struggle as much as those outside of the church and often feel hopeless in seeking help, because of the fear of embarrassment experienced in disclosing the problem.  Receiving help however can lead to permanent change.  Our Men of Honor program has helped many men experience spiritual healing that not only results in behavior change, but so often leads to restored marriages and faith growth.  Click on Men of Honor tab for more information

Kelly Diller, PLPC, MA

I received my MA from Covenant Theological Seminary and I have over 10 years of experience helping women transition crisis and restore relationships, with a particular emphasis on facilitating healing from abuse and betrayal.  I believe in the importance of bringing in compassion, understanding, and insights into the counseling experience, as I walk with my clients in discovering meaningful and long-lasting change.  Empowering others to pursue their fullest potential is a passion of mine.

Primary Specializations and Approach

  • EMDR. This is a specialized form of therapy that I utilize in helping individuals experience healing from past hurt and fear that once plagued their life.  Healing through EMDR has provided relief from symptoms of fear, obsessive worry, panic attacks, depression, and disturbing memories.  It is a form of short-term, often only requiring a limited number of sessions before the client experiences significant gains.
  • Trauma and Abuse.
  • Self-worth
  • Spiritual Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Grief
  • Women’s Issues
  • Relationship Issues

The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
