SHAWN MAGUIRE, LPC

CAN I HELP YOU…YES!

You are likely reading this because you are hurting and need one question answered: Can I help? I mean, can I really do more than just listen? Can I help you work through relationship issues that seem overwhelming and hopeless? Or am I able to help you with low self-esteem that has tormented you for as long as you can remember? Do you want help with a life where you’re tired of living because you don’t feel good enough?

The answer is…YES!

YES, there is help and hope for your marriage, anxiety, struggles with parenting, setting boundaries and so many more issues that you may be facing.YES, there is so much hope for the entrepreneur or business leader who is being crushed from all the stress and pressure and feels burned out and alone. I can help you!

HOW CAN I HELP?

For more than 25 years I have been walking couples from desperation and the brink of divorce into the journey of creating the marriage of their dreams. I have helped people just like you who began counseling feeling worthless and incapable of setting boundaries grow into the amazing men and women God created them to be. And if you are looking for pre marital counseling then get ready because we will go way beyond a surface level class. We will go on a journey that is filled with adventure while you work through your issues. And in the process you will be equipped with tools to create an incredible marriage. You may say “Shawn, this sounds way too good to be true”. I understand your reluctance to believe, but that’s why I encourage you to watch our videos and look at our google reviews to be encouraged. Encouraged that people just like you who started in pain and desperation overcame their fears. And through counseling, their lives were radically changed. Yours can be too!

SHAE GILBERT, LPC

I would imagine if you are reading this you are ready for a change. You’ve come to a place in your life where you can’t move on until things feel different or you see significant change. I know that if you are reading this you or someone you love is hurting and I am here to help you regain control of your emotions, relationships and life. As your therapist, I can help you create healthier and more effective ways to cope with struggles in life, using CBT and other evidenced based therapies.

Maybe you are considering therapy after living in a sense of fear and confusion for too long. Childhood trauma, abusive relationships, loss of loved ones are all reasons you may feel afraid and out of control in your life today.

I am here to help you find peace and a better way to move through life’s difficulties. Are you struggling in your relationships or fighting to stop the negative cycles? If you answered yes or even a strong maybe then I can help. I invite you to meet with me in a judgement free space where I will introduce you to new perspectives and equip you with new tools to navigate these areas of your life.

We can work together to build healthy boundaries. These boundaries will allow you to experience a deeper understanding of your wants and needs. And through counseling and setting boundaries you will be empowered to confidently communicate those wants and needs to others.

My goal is to get to know you and the unique issues that are causing you pain. From there I help you identify goals worthy of your true value. As I walk this journey alongside you, I equip you with specific tools that focus on teaching how to cope with and overcome the negative parts of your life.

Throughout my career as a Licensed Professional Counselor, I’ve worked with women, men, families and adolescents to overcome mental and emotional obstacles keeping them from living a more fulfilled life. I’ve seen women become empowered through setting healthy boundaries in their relationships, and find peace through processing trauma from their past. The families I have worked with have experienced a better understanding of each other’s needs or desires and couples have learned better ways of communicating to improve their relationships.

My education began at Cameron University, in Lawton, OK earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and finished at Mid America Christian University with a Master of Science degree in Counseling.

EMILY BOYERS, LPC

Do you ever feel like no one understands? Are you feeling anxious, depressed, hopeless or lost? Maybe you’re struggling to find connection with others around you. Sometimes change feels impossible and happiness seems out of reach. The great news is that you don’t have to walk this road alone. I am here to help!

You’ve already taken the first step and that takes courage. I would love to meet you there and begin walking with you. I will come alongside you with support, understanding, and encouragement. You will find yourself valued and accepted in our sessions. Together we will find tools to work through life’s anxiety and stress and to build lasting and sustainable relationships.

As a Christian counselor, I use evidence-based strategies and Biblical principles to support you in reaching your goals and living out God’s purpose for your life. We will work together to look at your mind and heart and how these form your behaviors and patterns. This can lead to lasting change! I am confident that if we start therapy, you have a 100% chance to change your life. Let’s get started today!

I have seen amazing transformation with clients of all ages on issues such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, relationship issues, stress and anger management, life direction and more. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology at Oklahoma Wesleyan University and my Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Arkansas.

Faith and family are at the center of my life. I live with my husband (who is a radical outdoorsman) and our adorable mini-Australian shepherd, Daisy. As a former college athlete, I’m a lover of all things sports! In my free time, I enjoy Crossfit, reading, and college football.

DUSTIN WALKER, LPC

Do you ever feel alone in your thoughts, unable to communicate with those around you? Do you feel like when you try to talk about it you just can’t find the words or that you’re met with criticism and judgement? Do you feel like no one understands you? As your therapist, it’s my desire to come alongside you and meet you where you are; to know you for who you are.

As Christians, we are not immune to the effects of depression, anxiety, or trauma, however I believe we have a great hope because of Jesus. Though the world can try to blind us to His love, I believe that there is nothing too far gone from His ability to redeem; no matter how dark the depression, how hopeless the marriage, or how crippling the anxiety. Through Gospel-Centered counseling, you will begin to experience the Peace that surpasses all understanding.

I can show you how God created your heart and how it interacts with daily life. You will understand the patterns of thought and feeling that form your desires and drives, and I can help you understand how God created them to a specific purpose. I fully believe that when you understand the pattern, you gain the ability to change the pattern to align with His design.

I like to help people like you uncover the deep structure of their beliefs and values in order to discover the root of the problem. This is important because we often feel pressured to change our behavior without examining our hearts. But to me, that’s the equivalent of taking bad fruit off a tree and stapling good fruit onto the branches. It doesn’t make sense! And that is because it is in the roots that good or bad fruit begins.

I received my Master’s in Counseling from Mid-America Christian University. I am married with three kids and a very hyper labradoodle, and I enjoy writing fiction and being immersed in a book.

LINDA GERBER, LPC

Are you stuck in one of life’s many, many struggles and wondering if you could benefit from Counseling? Are you feeling afraid to take the next step toward a better life because you think you should be able to conquer your problems on your own? Are you having relationship problems? Are you concerned that you won’t be accepted in counseling; or worse, that you will be judged unworthy of help?

The Bible tells us that this world is full of struggles, but we are not meant to face them alone. I would like to walk with you through your struggles and help you to achieve a more satisfying life. My desire to help others experience healing grew out of my traumatic childhood. And those painful experiences left me poorly equipped for life. Does any of this sound familiar?

Through counseling and God’s healing love I was able to overcome depression, low self esteem, and work through the flashbacks that created painful anxiety. I share this with you so you know you don’t have to be alone. I am here for you. There is HOPE and HEALING waiting on the other side of where you are today. 

I have been a licensed Counselor for thirty years and would be honored to work with you, to meet you where you are, and to journey with you as you move forward in your healing. I can offer you faith-based counseling in the areas of relationship building, improved self-esteem, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, marital and pre-marital counseling.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Northwestern Oklahoma State University and my master’s degree in Applied Psychology from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

I am blessed with two sons who blessed me with three grandchildren. My favorite things in life are spending time with my family and loving on my grandchildren. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, swimming, reading, gardening and board games.

JOSHUA RHOADES, LPC CANDIDATE

Do you feel like the stress and chaos of life are overwhelming and you are about to crack under all the pressure? Are you living in fear because your kids are angry, depressed and anxious? Do you desperately want to help them but don’t know how? Is your relationship struggling and you feel like you have tried everything and feel hopeless that things will change?

Are you ready to get off the emotional roller coaster and finally get the help you need? If the answer is yes then I can help! Through counseling I have helped adults, teens and kids create or recapture the parts themselves that have been so hurt they could barely function. I have helped children who started counseling hating themselves and their parents forgive and replace that hate with love.

I do this through getting to know the real you. And I accept you right where you are without judgement. Then, we begin the journey of healing together. You share your pain and your goals with me. We get to the root of the issues you are facing. And together, we walk through them and move towards healing.

When working with your kids or teens, I often use games and other activities to connect with them on their level. I get to know them and their interests and meet them there. I can use play, video games, and anything else they are interested in to open doors to their hearts. Once these doors are opened we can move into getting them to start investing and making changes that will transform.

CARRIE LANCE, LPC

“Why is this happening? It wasn’t supposed to be like this!” If you have ever felt like that or cried out those words in despair, you are not alone. If you are grieving any kind of loss – the death of a loved one, a broken relationship, the loss of a dream you had for yourself or your child, your health, physical ability, or other life changing losses — let me whisper something to you. Your feelings about it are valid; your suffering is human; your memories are precious; your tears are sacred. And there is HOPE.

Hope begins with sharing your suffering. Would you consider sharing your journey with me? I have been honored to walk with many kids, teens, adults, and families through some of their most challenging days when they wonder if they will ever feel whole or happy again. I can offer you a path toward hope and healing through proven counseling methods used within a framework of Christian beliefs.

For the past 20 years I have been helping my clients discover renewed hope and healing. . I have been privileged to see people who could barely function because they started in so much sadness and pain leave with healing and full of hope. I have seen relationships that were on the brink of devastation be restored between kids and parents, and parents with each other. I have walked through painful seasons of grief with those who could only see darkness at the beginning of their journey. And I am here and ready to take the journey with you towards a new sense of wholeness and joy.

I have a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Southern Nazarene University and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). The daughter of missionaries, I was raised in Africa where I learned to love and appreciate a life of simplicity and service, along with a good dose of adventure. For fun I like to fish and hike, read and knit. And I love a good cup of British tea. I have been married for 30 years to my wonderful husband. We have 2 adult children, 1 college student, 1 son-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter.

ERIN JACKSON, LPC CANDIDATE

You were created in the image of God with an invaluable purpose on your life. No matter what situation you may find yourself in, that truth never wavers. You may feel worthless, but you were bought with a price. You may feel hopeless, but in Christ you will find hope, over and over again. You may feel anxious and uncertain, but Jesus is the Prince of Peace. With God’s help, we can walk the road to freedom and healing together.

As a follower of Christ, I approach counseling with a biblical perspective, as well as a scientific one. I find that the two are not contradictory, since the Creator of the universe is the Author. God created the human mind and body, and with His divine help and by applying His principles, we can live a whole, abundant life.

I enjoy working with people of all ages and have experience working with people in many areas: depression and anxiety, grief, trauma, ADHD, and marital, behavioral, and anger issues. I have a Master’s degree in the Science of Counseling from Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City.

I believe you and I can partner together to get you well on your way to mental wellness. You don’t have to be in crisis mode to seek counseling – maybe you just need a little extra support. But if you are in crisis mode and you just don’t know where to turn, you’ve come to the right place. You have great courage by seeking out help. Take a step of faith today and begin your healing journey. I can’t wait to meet you.

When I am not in the office, I enjoy time spent with family and friends, volunteering in many aspects at my church (youth, praise team, hospitality), Starbucks, and Indian food. I can usually be found with a book in my hand.

MICHAEL LECY

If you’ve come here it’s likely because you find yourself at a crossroads and need help. Or, you may be at a watershed moment in your life as you stare down problems that seem overwhelming or impossible to overcome alone. In the midst of all you are going through I have some good news. You don’t have to walk this road alone. My desire is to help you feel seen, heard, and to begin to see hope and possibility on the horizon again. When you begin counseling, I will embark on the journey with you and go as far as you would like to. In our sessions I will equip you with the tools and resources you need to heal and move forward again.

I spent 15 years as a youth pastor and then as a family pastor. Part of my role as a pastor was to function as a pastoral counselor. During that time I saw life changing results working with individuals, marriages, families as well as with premarital couples.

Along with being a pastoral counselor and life coach, I am currently completing my masters to become a licensed marriage and family therapist. I have been married for 11 years and have four children. I love the outdoors and taking every day adventures with my wife and kids. I am passionate about Jesus and love sharing his love with others.

I am deeply committed to walking with you so that you have a plan, a path and someone to help you succeed . I am excited to meet you and walk this journey of transformation with you! So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started. The next step is to call or email to schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you soon.

BRITTANY PHILLIPS, BA

Do you feel misunderstood or unaccepted for who you truly are? Is your relationship stuck and you don’t know what to do next? Are you riddled with guilt or struggle with anxiety that you just can’t get over? Or maybe it’s fear or depression that’s holding you back from being your true self? If this sounds like you or if you have other issues in relationships, parenting and with your career I have good news. When you come to counseling I create a safe space where the person most valued is the real you. A place where you can be fully accepted without judgment for your feelings, insecurities, and mistakes. My approach to therapy starts and ends with valuing and helping YOU!! I believe God has a plan for you and would be honored if you invited me in to help you discover and achieve it.

Together we can identify where you are stuck and suffering because I will walk with you every step of the way. You will have someone on your side who is fighting for your highest good. And together we will help you find hope and healing that lasts!

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Southern Nazarene University, and I am currently working towards a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling at Mid America Christian University. I am on track to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am blessed with a wonderful Husband and two incredible boys who are growing up too fast. I have a passion for helping women navigate the difficult realities of pregnancy, postpartum, raising children, and marriage after children. Isolation, depression, and anxiety are real, but the great news is, you don’t have to face these realities alone. I am here for you.

DARBEY HARGRAVE, BA (INTERN)

Do you just want to feel like yourself again? You might feel as though different anxieties and stressors have taken over the person you used to love. In this tough season there is good news. You don’t have to walk this road alone and there is hope for you. You have a God who loves you and doesn’t want your identity to be based on the troubles of this world. You were made perfectly in his image and there is healing and restoration available for you!

I am passionate about getting to know the real you and creating the space for you to heal and grow. I can help you identify what energizes you and makes you excited. I also want to identify what patterns have been holding you back or weighing you down. By doing this we can work together in achieving your goals and creating a life that you are excited to live.

I earned my bachelor’s degree at the University of Oklahoma. I am a huge fan of OU and sports in general.

I am currently working towards my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling at Liberty University so that I can practice as an LPC. I love going to the movies, competing in different sports, and taking my dog for walks. I am passionate about my relationship with my family, friends, and Jesus.

I look forward to getting to know you and helping you walk from the pain you are in to a better place.

Morgan Fowler, LPC Candidate

If you are reading this, I imagine you are looking for a place that offers hope and where you can feel safe enough to share the real you. You may be seeking a place where you can share traumatic experiences from your past so you can heal and move towards freedom in the present. Or maybe stress at work, in your family or marriage is sucking the life out of you and you don’t know where to turn for help. I want you to know that I see you. Relationships, anxiety and painful childhood traumas can keep us stuck in cycles that can seem impossible to escape and overcome. And these are just some of the areas you are likely struggling with. You may be facing depression or issues with your children that you can’t seem to work through on your own.

The good news is that you do not have to bear the burden alone. Through counseling you can share your burdens with me so we can journey to a place of healing together. You don’t have to carry the weight of your traumas, anxiety or other issues you are facing alone. I am here to be a non-judgmental listener who can help you heal and work through the issues you are facing.

I am currently working towards a Masters in Clinical Mental Health at Mid-America Christian University to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). My husband and I have been married for seven years and we have two dogs. We attend Life Church on Sundays and would not have the marriage we have today without putting God first. I enjoy crafts, shopping, pizza, and DOGS.

Christian counseling at it's best. My marriage was in need. Shawn Maguire is simply the best therapist I could ask for. He has alot of experience and integrates the teachings of the Bible well so happy I was able to connect with him. Most importantly having someone listen to me without passing judgement and offering solutions helped me out. I'm telling all my girlfriends to go see New Vision Counseling and Consulting. So happy they are in Oklahoma City not sure what I'd do without them.

Shawn helped me to understand and recognized how my family pathology had driven my life choices. I had to learn and understand the power of the renewal of the mind, the power of forgiveness and learning to love yourself first. Instill of looking for love on the outside, learn to appreciate yourself and develop you. Shawn, assisted me to focus, develop and go into action with the truth about me. I had to face the honest truth about me; because it began with the person you see in the mirror. Who did I see...me! Yes, I learned to forgive myself and learned to forgive others. “If we embrace and understand the word of God we will behoove the truest, the finest, and the most precious diamond we will ever own”. S.MorrallShawn, thank you for helping me to see, understand and create the truth for my life; no matter what obstacles come my way. I have to understand it begins with me loving - who I am...”Nature Profound Miracle.” Even if I have to cry sometimes, let it out and remember to live, laugh and love with a heavy mixture of courage, discipline, perseverance, curiosity, humility, integrity, gratitude, compassion, faith, hope, and peace. Shawn Maguire is a professional, kind, and caring Counselor with a big heart that will listen to you and help you take the steps into your greatness. Don’t settle, when you deserve a better life for you and your family; yes it’s work and it’s worth the time to become your best. God highest blessings to you.

I have been known Caleb for three years. He has helped us to focus on our own family by supporting healthy boundaries against our extended family. About the wounded past, it was such a journey to go back together with the Holy Sprit and deal with the wounds with his power and true forgiveness for me and others. So that we can be ourselves as God has created. My husband and I recommend him. Caleb has demonstrated sensitivity, caring, encouragement and good insights. Caleb have taken a risk to speak truths with love for us. Caleb also gives options of faith based approach or not. We always feel he respects us.

We came to New Vision to address behaviors that were causing troubling patterns in our communication. Both of us are very good communicators, but we came into a season where additional help was very much needed. During our session visits, our counselor paid close attention to nuances in how we framed each other. We came to better understand where hurts and fears were hiding, and how each can help the other be the best he/she could be. Over the next few sessions, we were guided along to address concerns from both sides and bring us closer together. The time we spent in therapy was designed to not only re-frame each person’s behavior, but also understand each person’s humanity and make needed accommodations to facilitate positive growth. Now, we are closer than ever and excited about what our future holds! One of the best investments I’ve ever made.

The counselors at New Vision Counseling are truly one of a kind. Not only do they support and care about each other in their work environment but they really care for their clients too. They give hope, passion, and life back to those that truly need it most. It is an atmosphere of unity, compassion, and excellence in all that they do. I would recommend all of the therapists to anyone at New Vision!

When the role of a counselor is discussed it seems to be repeated theme. Among these are respect, responsibility and integrity. I have found that while respect and responsibility are without doubt important, neither can stand without integrity. Shawn Maguire and his New Vision Staff works to influence change and motivates clients to challenge themselves into a deeper understanding of God's true purpose for Marriage. Let us take a moment to honor Shawn and the Maguire Family! There has been no other couple in the world that has invested in our marriage more than Shawn Maguire and his beautiful wife Tanda - and their amazing kiddos. They are phenomenal. They actually do life with us and we aren't just a number in their "to-do" list....Shawn is full of LIFE and He emanates genuine joy all the time! He is always approachable, energetic and enthusiastic. I strongly recommend Shawn Maguire. - Rashawn and Denisse Copeland

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about counseling is a story from the Bible found in Exodus 17:11-13. It speaks of this battle that took place between the Israelites and the Amalekites. The Israelites had been brought out of bondage in Egypt, and they were on a journey through the wilderness to the Promised Land when this battle takes place. Joshua was leading the troops in battle and up on a hill stood Moses with his hand raised. When his hand was up, the Israelites were winning. When his hand was down, the Amalekites would overtake them. Moses' hands became tired. You can relate, right?We all face battles. Some of us are fighting for our marriages or our children, others are fighting against addiction, depression, anxiety, or maybe anger. In the midst of these battles, sometimes we become discouraged, overwhelmed, or simply after trying to do it all on our own - we have a "Moses moment" - we get tired and battle weary. Here's the part of the story that gets me every time: Moses is standing there tired, unable to hold his hands up any longer on his own, and it looks as though they may be defeated when two individuals, Aaron and Hur, come alongside Moses and begin to support his hands as they are lifted until the battle is won. Isn't that incredible, friends? What seems impossible alone is possible when we allow others to come alongside us. We were never meant to live alone. We were never meant to face battles on our own. We need each other, not because we are weak individually but because together we are stronger, together we are encouraged, and together there is the sweet fragrance of victory on the other side of any battle we may face.This is where counseling comes in. I do not know what battle you may face personally, but I do know the battles I have faced. I have had my "Moses moments" in the midst of fighting for precious things in life and have needed the services New Vision Counseling offer. I have tried other places in the past, but there is just something different in the quality of services and the atmosphere of this place. Shawn Maguire and his team at New Vision Counseling are amazing therapists who genuinely love the Lord and want to see you succeed. They really listen, get to the heart of the issue, and formulate an individualized plan for you that works if you are willing to do your part. They cannot fight your battle for you, but they will come alongside you, pray for you, encourage you, equip you with the necessary tools, and support you through the battle as God frees you and you begin to live victoriously. Right now, the only thing standing between you and victory is your willingness to show up for battle. Make the call. Trust me, you won't regret it.
