Our Team


Kay Howard, MA, LPC, NCC

Owner / CEO

I have been licensed as a Professional Counselor in the State of Oklahoma for over 17 years. I particularly enjoy working with women and their unique issues and concerns. I also have worked with children and families involved in special family situations, i.e., grief, divorce and DHS.

I specialize in serving women, children and families. I believe that all women need to feel good about themselves and be all they can be. Some times all it takes is someone believing in them.

Karen Martin (Landolfi), MA, LPC

Director of Student Affairs

I believe that counseling is a collaborative partnership in which both the therapist and client are working towards a common goal. As your guide and facilitator, I try and assist you in achieving those goals through a variety of techniques and interventions. My goal is to equip you with skills you can use and apply outside the counseling setting. I believe that self determination and self advocacy are key components of the therapeutic process. Each counseling setting is individualized to address the unique needs of each client.

I have extensive experience working with older children and adolescents who are experiencing behavior difficulties due to a wide range of concerns including ADHD, Learning Disabilities, and ODD. Additionally, I am adept at functional behavior assessment, positive behavior supports and IEP development and management.

Madison Mills, MS, LPC, NCC

Clinical Director

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. I graduated from the Community Counseling graduate program through SWOSU. I received by Bachelor’s degree from OU. I have mostly worked with children, adolescents, and their families. I thoroughly enjoy working with adolescents and being able to provide them with support through that difficult life stage and the transition to adulthood. I consider myself to have an eclectic theoretical approach to counseling. I feel that it is important to pull from many different theories to be able to meet the client’s individual needs. I have worked extensively with clients who have experienced trauma and have gone through extensive trauma training. Most of us have experienced some form of trauma so I feel very strongly that counselors need to have a great deal of training in this area. When the F5 tornado hit Moore in 2013, I worked with an agency that was one of the primary agencies who assisted in the recovery of the community. I have been with CPC since August 2015 and have been the clinical director for the past 6 months. It is my responsibility to ensure that our therapists are providing quality care to our clients and meeting their needs. I look forward to working with you and your family. I believe everyone deserves happiness and is capable of being in the driver’s seat of their own life, sometimes it just takes some support to reach that goal.

Jacob Ogle, M.Ed., LPC


I believe that we all have moments of doubt or uncertainty in which we are unsure of how to proceed. I also believe that, in those times, a little guidance or another perspective from which to view life could be especially helpful. It would be my pleasure to help you with any and all of your needs in finding your way to personal happiness. I enjoy working with many different demographics of people including children, teens, adults, individuals, families, and couples.

I have worked with many people who had varying levels of difficulties in their lives. I truly believe that happiness and understanding are possible for everyone if they will actively strive for it.

It is always gratifying to see clients make progress as they learn to navigate through and resolve complications in their lives.

Chris Shaffer, MA, MS, LMFT 


My name is Chris Shaffer and I have provided counseling services in Oklahoma as a Marital and Family Therapist since 2010 and as an ordained minister for nearly 20 years. I am currently licensed and hold two graduate degrees: Master of Arts in counseling/human relations (2007) and Master of Science counseling/marriage and family therapy (2010). My training has been diverse in regards to psychological theory and therapeutic intervention; therefore, my personal approach to counseling incorporates a variety of therapeutic strategies. I offer supportive therapeutic services to all age groups and enjoy working with individuals, couples, and children / adolescents. 

Sarah Whitewater, MS, LPC Candidate


“When we are no longer able to change our situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” Vicktor Frankl

My goal as a counselor is to engage people in the process of making meaningful change. I believe this is achieved by understanding one’s own needs and by developing ways to meet these needs to create balance in life. This is possible when people are able to acknowledge the power of their choices, and begin to use their voice as a means to overcome their unique challenges.

Over the last five years, I have gained experience in various mental health settings. My most recent position held was at the Moore Counseling Center where I assisted with Psychological Evaluations for ADHD, learning disabilities, emotional and behavioral problems, academic, personality, and overall cognitive functioning. Other populations I have worked with include children and parents, adults, and senior populations. My passion for crisis intervention and outreach has led me to become a volunteer for the American Red Cross and a member of the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation.

I would be happy to speak with you regarding any further questions about my experience, my credentials, or any other concerns you may have. I can be reached by work cell phone at 405.999.7525 or by email at [email protected]

Amanda Heaney, MS, LPC Candidate


We all find ourselves stuck, lost, or hurting at some point. As a counselor, I seek to create a safe space to allow clients to feel seen and understood. Through the context of a meaningful counseling relationship, we can explore patterns and gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and others. Together, we can discover creative solutions that lead to a more empowered and fulfilled life.

I believe that mind, body and spirit are connected. As holistic beings, we work towards a more integrated and connected self. Whether suffering from anxiety, depression, grief, or another life transition, you are not alone. There is hope and healing.

While I do enjoy working with a diverse population and a range of issues, I have extensive training in working with families and children. In the past I have worked primarily with children who are experiencing emotional or behavioral issues, as well as their families. My background combines trauma informed care with child development. I offer play therapy as well as attachment and bonding therapy between caregiver and child.

I attended OSU (twice), once to get an education degree (2007), and the second time, for counseling psychology (2015). I am currently accruing hours for my counseling licensure. The counseling relationship and process are unique, and I find it a privilege to do the work I do.

Mistye Kelly, MS, LPC Candidate


As a Licensed Professional Counseling Candidate, I strive to assist my clients in finding the tools that will facilitate change in their lives. I feel that each person is unique, and therefore, the goals for their treatment should also be unique. I see you as the expert on your life, and myself as someone to help you on your journey to self-awareness. I enjoy working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. I especially enjoy cultivating the parent-child relationship, helping young people build self-esteem, and assisting couples through their relationship struggles. I have experience working with a variety of issues, such as trauma, depression, suicidal ideation, and behavioral issues. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to help people. It can be very difficult to make the choice to seek assistance. As the first step is often the hardest, I encourage you to call me, ask questions, and be an advocate for yourself. I will be with you every step of the way. Change is always possible, we can get there together.

Roberta Heath, MA, LMFT

I studied Human and Family Services for my undergraduate work and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree from Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, Oklahoma.

I have several years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families to help heal relational wounds. I have also facilitated art therapy groups for the past three and a half years and enjoy incorporating artistic expression into therapy. I strongly believe that artistic expression in its many forms is a powerful healing agent. I believe you are the captain of your own ship.
