counseling with a growth mindset

Meet Adam

Adam R glendye LPC, CPCS

Book with adam

Hello! I'm Adam and I believe that pursuing growth and opportunity is essential to achieving health and life goals. I founded The Pursuit in 2023 to help my clients pursue life with that same belief. I specialize in Narrative Therapy, which emphasizes the stories we tell ourselves about our lives. These stories shape our experiences and perceptions, and ultimately influence how we see ourselves in the world.

Our collaborative efforts will involve a journey towards self-discovery, resulting in a heightened comprehension of oneself and an enhanced level of integration. The culmination of our work together will leave you feeling more equipped to handle life's challenges with a restored sense of completeness.

Meet Mary

MARY laughlin, APC

BOok with mary

Hi, I’m Mary, and I take great care in creating therapeutic spaces that allow my clients to feel seen, heard, and known. My goal is to meet each client where they are, just as they are, with authenticity, compassion, and respect. Together, we do this by shedding light on what brings you both joy and pain so that you can step in confidence towards the life that you desire. 

My work primarily draws from Psychodynamic Therapy and Existential Therapy. Depending on client needs, I also incorporate wellness and expressive arts interventions. My professional background in healthcare and education have given me a deep appreciation for the gifts that come with acceptance and the human capacity for growth. I look forward to walking with you on this journey.
