Meet Our Therapists 

Cami Tafessee, LMSW, LMAC

Clinical Site Director

I am in this field as I am passionate about helping individuals achieve their goals and improve their lives. I feel honored to be present with individuals as they share their hope for growth or their challenging experiences and we work to navigate these things together. I see my role as walking alongside individuals as they work to achieve their goals. I believe we all have the capacity for change and growth, and my role is to assist individuals as they discover these things within themselves. I can think of nothing greater than assisting individuals through the healing process and discovering their strengths that propel them forward into healthier living.



Janie Arredondo

Office Manager

I am passionate about mental health because I have personally experienced the benefits of mental health therapy. I believe that a person’s mental wellbeing is just as important as their physical wellbeing. It brings me joy to see the positive changes that therapy can make in people’s lives. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a field I feel so strongly about. Through my work at Inspire I hope to facilitate others in their mental health journeys. I hope to make even the shortest interactions pleasant, welcoming and warm.

Scarlett Bunyard, LMFT


I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 10 years of experience in a variety of fields. I began my career in community mental health. I have experience with both inpatient and outpatient settings and have worked with clients within the prison system, in acute psychiatric care and out in the community. I have worked with clients of all ages but specialize in treating adolescents, couples and adults. I have been licensed since 2010 and am accruing hours towards my clinical license currently. I became a therapist because I truly wanted to help people heal. I believe we all have the capacity to change and cope better with life’s ups and downs. I am trained in CBT, crisis management, trauma and mental health disorders. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Friends University. I am both honored and humbled to do the work that I do and believe strongly in person centered treatment.

Abigail Shinkle, LMFT


Since I was a teenager, I’ve always wanted to work in a field where I could help others. I became interested in working with trauma survivors at that time and spent a few years trying to decide how I could work with them in a way that fit my personality. Once I realized that I couldn’t be a nurse because I fainted at the sight of blood, I decided to switch towards more clinical work and the mental health field. The joy and fulfillment I’ve found when helping others on their healing journey has been an honor and often, humbling. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be a small part of someone’s story. I want to help empower others to seek the small moments and find joy and peace in the ‘in-between’, the moments that don’t seem life changing until you look back and realize how they all added up. I take a holistic approach to treatment, in that I look at a person as a whole; mind, body, and spirit fully connected. Seeking help is one of the most vulnerable things we can do as human beings and I would love to join you on your journey and encourage you to take that beginning step because there is power in acknowledging we need help.


Maria Gutierrez 

Case Manager/Practicum Student


I chose this field because empowering people to become the best versions of themselves is something that I am passionate about. Being able to support people through their journey is something that I truly enjoy doing. At times, this can include addressing life stressors or helping people get connected to the right resources.

My previous work experience has allowed me to work alongside adolescents involved in the justice system and those who have experienced domestic violence. I take great pride in being able to offer services in English and Spanish.
