The mother-daughter team of Cris Treadway and Gail Payne wanted to do things differently. Their clients at Insight Life Counseling can attest that they’ve done just that. A licensed professional counselor (LPC), Cris spent years working in hospital settings, but she longed to provide clients with the individualized attention they deserve. When her mom, Gail, was ready to say “good-bye” to her own fund-raising and event-planning business, the two decided to join forces and open a boutique counseling practice where clients are carefully matched with the right counselor. Icing on the cake has been Cris’ daughter, Sydney Treadway, joining the practice and this dynamic three-generational team being joined by two other licensed therapists.
Cris Treadway, with 25 years of experience, is skilled in working with individuals, couples, and families. She specializes in depression, anxiety, addictions, infertility, and life transitions. “I embrace all clients with this passion and belief they can heal and grow beyond their current pain. The decision to enter into counseling is significant; I respect how difficult this choice can be and will support your positive change in a manner that works best for you. When you commit to counseling, rest assured I’m committed to you and meeting your goals,” Cris said.
“Our motto is ‘Insight Life Counseling… Because Life Happens’, we teach clients they can always choose how to respond to life’s challenges,” Gail said. Most insurances accepted.
