Mike Turgeon

Mike Turgeon

Owner, MS, LPC, LSW

I am the father of three adult children and have lived in Ashland most of my adult life.
I see clients in Ashland, Glidden, Park Falls, Shell Lake and Spooner, WI. I am the founder and CEO of Prentice House Inc., which consists of three group homes for adolescent males located in the Ashland area. Prentice House, Inc. was established in 1992 and I’ve worked for SOAR Services in Shell Lake since 2007 and became the owner in 2012.
I now practice with clients aging from 8 to 67. I enjoy working with adults and couples that cannot seem to find the emotional balance that they once had. I am very much grounded in building a therapeutic non-judgmental relationship with all clients. I feel this is so vital in their therapy to gain balance and fulfillment in their lives. So, I encourage you, or anyone you may know that is struggling in their balance and fulfillment, to reach out and give Soar Services a try.

Holly Breeden

Holly Breeden

Hello! My name is Holly and I have been with Soar Services since August 2019. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Superior with a Bachelor of Science degree (Social Work) in 2010 and a Master of Science in Education degree in 2019. I also graduated with a massage therapy diploma from Lake Superior College in 2005

I have worked in many different fields including being an IRIS Consultant for the state of Wisconsin, coaching middle school volleyball, running a hot lunch program in Northwest Wisconsin, working in the hospitality industry, being a program counselor at a few different group homes, running my own massage therapy business and running a veteran’s non-profit chapter in the state of Minnesota.

One career experience that I hold near and dear to me was being in the military. I was in the military from 2002-2014 as a light and heavy wheeled vehicle mechanic. I was also tasked with being the nuclear, biological, chemical (NBG) Specialist. The military is where I discovered one of my passions; listening and helping others find their voice to live a better quality of life. I know the struggles veteran’s deal with, and my hope is to help find that special something in their lives that will comfort their struggles.

The number one item on my list of priorities is my family. Family means everything to me. I am married and have two children. My favorite thing to do is be their mom. We enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping together along many other things.

I have a strong belief that life can be messy, things can be turned upside down and be overwhelming, relationships can change, but life CAN be wonderful! Not one of us in this world is perfect, but you can make changes and create the life you are willing to live. The choice is yours!

Dani Cason

Dani Cason

My name is Danielle (Dani) Cason and I am so happy to be a part of the Soar team! I am a small-town girl who grew up in Solon Springs, WI, before spending some time living in the Twin Cities, Hawaii, and New York City. I have a Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin-Superior in Wellness and Fitness Management, with a minor in Health. I will be graduating from Liberty University in May of 2022 with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I have worked in a variety of fields including summer camps, military contracting, education, drug and alcohol prevention, ministry, fashion, and photography. My most important job title is “Mom” and I take great pride in the two little boys that I’m raising along with the help of our two dogs. As a family, we enjoy traveling, trips to Target, playing with animals, and cheering for the Solon Springs Eagles.

Two passions motivated me to become a therapist: The first was my desire to see people navigate the curve balls that life throws at all of us, in a way that promotes growth and overall wellness. I believe that healthy individuals can engage in healthy relationships which can lead to a healthier society for everyone. My second passion is to make mental health care more accessible to rural communities, such as the one that I call home.

My approach to therapy is always evolving, but is based on helping clients discover their strengths, find solutions that work for them, and to challenge their obstacles with new skills and perspectives. In my work with couples and families I use a systems approach as well as Gottman therapy. My faith is a large part of my personal life, and I have been trained to integrate faith into practice, based on clients’ needs and goals.

Life can be so tough; everyone needs a helping hand at times. I am honored to offer a safe and nonjudgmental space for people to work through difficult challenges.

Michelle Chase

Michelle Chase

MS, LPC

Since I began practicing 21 years ago, I’ve gathered extensive experience working with individuals (adults and adolescents 14 years and up) using a strengths-based approach in addition to assessing and increasing communication skills for all areas of life to ensure you get the most out of every session and out of life. Always first and foremost, my goal as a therapist is to be genuine, approachable, and nonjudgmental as I help guide you through the therapeutic process to become your own best resource.

My specialty areas are anxiety and OCD, depression, adolescents /adults of divorced parents, grief and loss, trauma, codependency, adolescents/adults of alcoholic/addicted parent(s), ADHD management, body image, relationship issues, self-esteem, as well as blended-family issues. My goal is to give you usable tools beginning the first session.

I appreciate busy lives so I do hold some flexible hours one evening a week. Believing in a holistic approach, I try my best to help clients get the best care possible. With your permission, I work to bridge the gap between health care providers, should you have other health concerns that might be related.

Alexa DeMoe

Alexa DeMoe

Hello! My name is Alexa DeMoe and I am happy to join the Soar Services therapist team in the local community of Siren, Wisconsin.

My approach to people is centered around a strong belief that being human means life gets a little messy sometimes, it is part of our shared lived experience. My approach to therapy is to normalize and hold space for the human experience, starting with the person that I am sitting across from in session. I truly believe that healing starts with first being seen by another human. Like really seen. I am client centered in my therapy approach as I understand that the client’s story and context of their life matter tremendously, and I know a safe space to share that story is a key component to therapy. Therapy can offer a place for someone to understand your lens that you see the world through as well as offer different perspectives when we get stuck in our own lens.

Professionally, I have worked with children, teenagers, and adults in a variety of settings including individual therapy, family therapy, and in group therapy settings. I have concentrated on areas such as children/adolescents, substance use, and eating disorders throughout my graduate studies at the University of Wisconsin – Stout. Furthermore, I continue to grow, learn, and work in the following areas: trauma-informed care, play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, diversity & inclusion, and LGBTQIA+ specific struggles.

Therapy can be short-term and quick. Therapy can be slow and last longer. For everyone that will look different. I do not want to put humans into a box that we can’t possibly fit in, so I will be excited to learn about how you are currently needing therapy in your life and how I can walk beside you on your journey.

MS, LPC

My name is Cathy Ekern. I have been working at Soar Services for three years. Before that I was a school counselor in the Cameron School District. I worked in the district for twenty-nine years and retired three years ago. I have a Masters Degree and am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I enjoy working with adults as well as children.
I believe it is vital that the client and counselor have a trusting relationship. I feel I have a good rapport with high school students. It is especially rewarding to work with young people to help them understand the changes and growth they are going through that may cause depression and or anxiety. I have also worked with couples. I find it very rewarding to help couples work through difficult times.
I have grown in my counseling experience while working at Soar.

Maurice McClain

Maurice McClain

My focus is on individual therapy, working with clients from adolescents to later adulthood. I practice from an integrative perspective which means several theories or techniques could be used together, depending on the needs of my client. I also like to have a collaborative relationship, with my client. I am not the expert on one’s life but a guide to help my clients get to their desired destination. The therapeutic relationship is the most important part of the client/therapist relationship. Establishing trust and a safe environment where open and honest communication is a vital part of the process.

I have experience working with mental disorders, distress/trauma, support, coping, resolving conflicts and self-exploration. I enjoy working with a diverse population and look forward to working with underrepresented individuals who may feel left out or are looking to expand perspectives and find themselves. I believe in positive energy and staying in the moment.

Matt Meyer

Matt Meyer

I am excited to be a part of Soar Services and serving the local community. I grew up in Spooner, WI. I was in the military from 2006-2012, and after being honorably discharged, I started working on a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Upon completion of my degree, I started working with adolescents and their family systems. I enjoy working with couples and individuals from ages five and up.

As a therapist, I enjoy hearing your story and seeing how I can come alongside you and help you live the life that you envision. I use a variety of different interventions including CBT, DBT, solution-based, narrative, and family systems from a person-centered focus.

Being a Christian therapist, I hope to see people grow in their faith, and I like being able to bridge the gap between the psychological and spiritual disciplines.

Wendy Muska

Wendy Muska

Hello! My name is Wendy Muska and I am happy to join the Soar Services therapist team providing services to my hometown of Siren, Wisconsin and also Shell Lake, Wisconsin where I have lived for the past fifteen years. Thank you for taking the time to check out our website.

My approach to therapy is always to help a person discover what they do well, enhance strengths and provide positive encouragement while we work toward solving issues and working toward goals identified by my clients. Often times, we get stuck and can’t see why we continue to struggle with the same issues in our life; this is a frustrating experience. I understand this frustration and try to keep our sights on solutions to the issue often utilizing a Solution Focused therapy model. I also enjoy working with struggling couples who would like to improve their relationship. I have worked as a social worker for the past twenty-five years and have been honored to be included in many life journeys with many different people; I always learn from my clients and enjoy the collaborative helping relationship. I bring passion to the work I do and a true, deep soul belief in everyone’s ability to change and grow. I particularly enjoy providing Christian faith-based counseling services to those who are interested in this perspective. I look forward to meeting with you and being part of your healing journey.

Andy Schulz

Andy Schulz

Hello, my name is Andy Schulz and I’m thrilled to join the team of clinicians at Soar Services. I look forward to serving my local community in any way I can be of assistance as a clinician. I was born and raised in the Spooner area and I’m happy to get back to my roots. I am the father of two children aged 11 and 14. I grew up with a love for nature through my many years of fishing and hunting. Over the past 19 years I have owned and operated an adult family home. I’ve worked with people who have intellectual disabilities and differing mental disorders. I have always had a passion to assist individuals in being as independent and productive members of the community in their own way. Living life with a degenerating visual impairment gives me a unique perspective and I feel confident in saying that I can offer a great deal of insight into those who live with disabilities.

I’m a firm believer in building a therapeutic relationship in order to promote mutual respect, a feeling of a safe place to speak freely, and a deep sense of trust. My approach is very integrated utilizing techniques from narrative, solution-focused, person-centered, choice theory, CPT, and CBT. Just as every individual is unique, I too feel that the therapy should be tailored to meet the needs of each individual. I am of the mindset that therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client working towards improving ones’ situation in life that troubles them. I look forward to joining with you to foster in a new sense of well-being and exploring areas of life you would like to improve.
