Bonna Machlan, Ph.D., LPC, CAC III

I have been working in the field of behavioral health for the past 15 years. I have a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation and extensive experience in providing therapy for adults with a variety of mental health and substance use disorders (i.e. trauma, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, anger management, marriage counseling). I am also able to effectively utilize Christian/faith-based principles as requested by my clients. I offer you compassion, empathy and non-judgmental interaction as we work together to find resolutions, develop coping skills, and manage symptoms that will improve your ability to move forward in your daily life. 

I consider it a privilege to serve clients in this capacity and look forward to meeting with you.

Teletherapy (video or phone sessions) is a great alternative to in-person therapy if desired, and I would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.

Bonna has absolutely been a heaven sent to myself and my husband. She has given us to much of her knowledge and Christian foundation. She has made us feel welcome and has been so easy to speak with on issues we are dealing with. I am so glad I found her!

Bonna has been amazing! She hears me and helps me to understand why I am feeling the way I am. Bonna has taught me how to 'take thoughts to court's and that has been such a blessing in my healing g by allowing g me to sort fact from fiction.

Bonna is absolutely amazing. I have never been able to talk about things in my life and with her I can. I started seeing her at a different location and followed her. I recommend her to anyone that feels broken.

I appreciate Bonna Machlan's counseling because of the guidance that she gives. She is able to tie God's design and typical human behavior together with common sense to gain a beautiful healing outcome. She has given me counsel about many areas over the course of several years. She is trustworthy.
