- Amanda Tapper, MA, LAMFTPre-Marital Counseling, Couples, Individual Relationship Issues, First-Responder Couples
She is an inspiration. Describing Amanda in words on a webpage is woefully inadequate. Her presence brings even the most insane situations to their knees. She is a human paradox.
Her presence is both accepting and commanding, which is especially valuable because she works frequently with couples dealing with Infidelity, Betrayal, and Loss. She also leads our Affair Groups, which allow clients to get guidance & support at a critical juncture in their lives.
Lastly, she has a special passion for and particular interest in working with First-Responder Couples, as she understands the complexities and nuances that compose these unique relationships.
- Mike Hitzelberger, MA, LPIndividuals, EMDR/Trauma, Hypnosis
Mike is well known for his humor, compassion, and ability to challenge. He has over 20 years of experience in the field and especially enjoys working with individuals going through transition, grief, loss and trauma. Mike does not work with couples, but he often does assessments and works with the individuals within a relationship to help them work through past trauma in order to become more relational. Mike specializes in EMDR, a modality that is effective in unlocking pain that has been trapped in the body.
Mike’s clients appreciate his straightforward and honest style. You will find that you can tell him anything, and he will be fully authentic in his response to you.
- Kate Kadleck, MSCouples, Individual Relationship Issues, Children and Adolescents
We are so lucky to have Kate here at RTC! When you meet her, you’re going to feel like you already know her because she is just so easy to talk to. She’s warm and welcoming, and you can see in her eyes that she really gets it because she truly listens. It’s a rare and precious quality. She’s one of our younger therapists, but she’s one of those old souls that was just born wise. We have been blown away by how even in complex situations, Kate seems to almost instantly understand the dynamic of a relationship and can insightfully direct a couple to a more solid path.
Kate is just the kind of person that you’d want on your side if you’re dealing with some relationship challenges. We love how she’s not afraid of pain, so she can sit with even the most painful situations and skillfully help a couple navigate.
Unlike many therapists, Kate works Saturdays (as well as daytimes and evenings). She knows that being able to come in at a convenient time to see her is going to make it much easier to meet your goals!

- Tina Neameyer, MA, LMFTCouples, Individual Relationship Issues
Great couples therapists have great tenacity. Tina is the very embodiment of tenacity – passionate, persevering and straight to the point (PPP). Tina is warm, but she won’t hold back from telling you like it is because she believes it is her job to be honest with you. If you want your relationship to work – Tina will do everything in her power to get you there. Having someone like her on your team can make all the difference. Just try staying stuck with her. We dare you. You’re going to lose. That tenacity is infectious. You won’t be able to help yourself.
When we’re really lost and stuck – Tina is our answer.
Tina is one of the therapists that leads the Women’s Intensive. These are powerful workshops that help women heal blocks from their past to then transform their relationships.
- Kat Ludwig, MA, LMFTCouples, Adolescents, Individual Relationship Issues
Kat is uniquely skilled in working with couples, because she’s very good at understanding where each person is coming from. Her breadth of experience in therapy and life is immense– she can talk about sexuality, spirituality, and healthy relationships with just about anyone, and in the most nonjudgmental way. She’s trained in Discernment, so she’s especially skilled in helping couples determine IF this relationship is right for them.
Kat’s background translates into a wide repertoire of therapeutic know how. There is no stopping her and nothing she can’t handle. She uses her extensive experience to tailor therapy to each individual, family and couple. She also works with teens who are figuring out who they are. There is no “one size fits all” in Kat’s approach. She will find the approach that works for you. She won’t give up. Just try it. It’s not happening.

She’s genuine and knows how to be real, but you’ll pick up on her sense of humor right away. You can really be yourself with her, and if you don’t necessarily fit in the ‘100% normal’ bucket (what is that bucket anyway?), you’ll feel right at home with Emily.
Emily takes daytime as well as evening appointments, just to make it easier to schedule with her.
