Mike Turgeon

Mike Turgeon

Owner, MS, LPC, CSW

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

MS, Professional Counselor in Training (QTT)

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

Professional Counselor in Training (QTT)

My name is Dani (Danielle) Cason and I am a Marriage & Family Therapist In-Training. I graduated from Liberty University with an M.A. in Marriage & Family Therapy in May 2022. I am a small-town country girl at heart: I love spending time with my sons and our dogs, horseback riding, and reading a good book. I also have a taste for adventure and can’t sit still for too long!

I have an extensive background working with tweens, teenagers and young adults in schools, athletics, youth groups, and pregnancy resource centers. I have a passion for couples and families, because I believe a strong couple makes a healthy family, which is best for society as a whole. I also believe that challenges in life can rarely be attributed to one person, and that it is possible to work as a team to overcome the curveballs that life inevitably throws at us all.

I work with groups and individuals using solution-focused, person-centered, CBT and DBT approaches, as well as Gottman method and family systems theories.

I offer teletherapy services only, to provide you counseling from the comfort of your own home. I understand that most people have a lot on their plate and sometimes it’s easier to stay home than to drive to an appointment, especially in our rural communities.

I am excited to meet you and collaborate with you to meet your goals and help you live your best life!

Lydia Caswell

Lydia Caswell

Professional Counselor in Training (QTT)

I work with adolescents, adults, and couples, using a variety of integrated methods. I believe in creating a collaborative therapy experience that can adjust based on your needs and existing skill sets. I take a humanistic approach in therapy sessions, believing that a strong therapeutic relationship is crucial to creating a sense of safety and support. I often integrate methods from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt theory, Bonding Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness into my practice. It is my goal to create a space in which clients feel safe, seen, and heard, and where they can explore both themselves and their options.

I work in the Ashland office, both in person and virtually.

Michelle Chase

Michelle Chase

MS, LPC

After practicing for 22 years, 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 with a primary focus on all of our relationships. First and foremost, my goal is to be approachable, genuine, and non-judgemental as you are guided through the therapeutic process on your way to becoming your own best resource. Using a strong Cognitive-Behavioral background while weaving in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, I have also recently added EMDR to further help heal trauma; big or small, single episode as well as complex.

My specialty areas are anxiety, relational trauma, individuals of divorced/dysfunctional parents, grief/loss, codependency, individuals of alcoholic/addicted parents, ADHD management, OCD, body image concerns, self-esteem, as well as blended family issues. I aim to give you usable tools and insights during the first session, if possible.

I appreciate busy lives so I do hold some flexible hours after the traditional workday ends. Believing in a holistic approach, I aim to educate and try my best to help clients get the best care possible through learning and practicing self-advocacy.

Alexa DeMoe

Alexa DeMoe

MS, LPC

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.

Holly Luedke

Holly believes the best way to help people is to help them learn how to help themselves. Each of us has gifts and strengths. Sometimes we need help uncovering or realizing how our strengths can lead us to solutions.

Using an eclectic, integrative therapy approach, Holly tailors treatment plans to meet each client’s individual needs. She offers a welcoming place for clients to talk about their faith and religious or spiritual beliefs and values. For those who prefer, Holly combines the best of psychology with biblical insight to achieve hope and healing. Holly enjoys seeing adults, adolescents, teens, individuals, couples, and families. Holly has unique insight into the issues and challenges that pastoral families and physician families experience. She can help people with all kinds of concerns and issues including but not limited to life changes, relationships, religious/spiritual growth, hurt, and confusion, narcissistic injury, food/eating/body issues, sexuality concerns/confusion, intimacy, depression, shame, alcohol and other addictions (religion, exercise, shopping, pornography, busyness/doing, spending, others).

My name is Kevin Lynch. I am very excited to begin working with members of my community helping them create solutions to their problems. I have been living in the Hayward area for about 8 years with my amazing wife, and two little kids. I have been working with people of a wide variety of ages since the beginning of 2015.

My focus of work is on trauma, anxiety, and depression. I want to help you reduce the symptoms related to those areas as quickly as possible to help you live the life you want and deserve. I utilize several different types of therapy to help the individuals I work with. I utilize Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), and have been certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I will work hard to adjust my approach to what you feel you need to create change in your life.

I will be working primarily in the Hayward office, but will be open to work remotely with individuals that think that would be a better fit for them. I look forward to hearing your story, and helping you on your journey through life!

Maurice McClain

Maurice McClain

MS,Professional Counselor in Training (QTT)

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.

MS, LPC - Licensed Professional Counselor

MA Marriage and Family Therapy
from Liberty University
EMDR trained through EMDRIA.

I am excited to be a part of Soar Services and serve 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 ten 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 want to live. I know when people come to counseling it is often the most difficult times of their lives, and holding onto hope and healing through these times is what I do best. I know life can get better, through your willingness to change, grow, and learn new skills.

I often integrate different interventions including EMDR, CBT, DBT, solution-based, narrative, and family systems from a person-centered focus for the best outcomes for the individual.

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

MS, LPC

Hello! My name is Wendy Muska and 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.
