Dr. Jacob Santhouse
A Colorado native, Jacob has always loved mountains. That said, he spent the last 11 years living, working, and finishing his formal education in downtown Chicago. He worked as a counselor in both community counseling and private practice settings. During his time in Chicago, the mountains never stopped calling, and in 2020, it was finally time to answer the call. So, Jacob, his wife Kathy, and their two children packed up and moved to Idaho to embark on some new adventures.
Jacob has worked with individuals, couples, and families on a wide range of issues. Working with young adults and adolescents has emerged as his primary interest and specialty. His focus includes anxiety, depression, life adjustment, lack of self-worth, relational issues, or negative feelings towards yourself.
As Jacob counsels, he has a relational and somewhat relaxed style. His goal is to create a safe space where you can be vulnerable, without any fear of judgment. For this approach, he uses a blend of Narrative and Person-Centered theories. These two theories form an approach that seeks to honor, respect, and empower you. Though it is focused on the positive, this approach also believes that joy and suffering are important parts of life.
Jacob earned his Doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision from Governors State University and his Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Moody Theological Seminary. In addition to his academic credentials, Jacob is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Idaho and Illinois, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado, and a registered Telehealth provider in Florida enabling him to offer online counseling in those four states.
In addition to his degrees and licensure, Jacob has also completed various specialized trainings. He completed the Emotionally Focused Therapy externship at the Chicago Center for EFT. He is also a Certified Traumatologist and completed extensive training on working with trauma from the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology. Finally, he has also been trained in Level 1 EMDR.

Dr. LaToya Flowers-Roe
Couple and family relationships can be hard work – the source of great joy and great pain. Dr. LaToya specializes in couple and family counseling. She, primarily, works with clients regarding issues such as communication, infidelity, parenting, child and adolescent behavior, depression, anxiety, and daily life stress. She sees clients individually, as couples, and/or as families.
Dr. LaToya concentrates on strengthening couple and familial bonds, repairing relationship wounds, and breaking destructive generational patterns of interaction. She does so by using a positive, brief therapeutic approach to provide long lasting change in as short a time as possible. She strives to create a safe, nurturing environment for her clients by expressing genuine warmth, care, and concern. She wholeheartedly believes her clients can and will accomplish their therapeutic goals.
Currently, she splits her time between working in private practice and working as a professor and director of DEI at Northwestern University. As a result, her availability for sessions during the academic year tends to be limited to Wednesday evenings and on Sundays. However, she is available to clients for consultation throughout the week.
Dr. LaToya received her B. S. in Psychology from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. She received a M.A. in Counseling with a specialization in marriage and families as well as a doctoral degree in Counselor Education and Supervision from Governors State University in University Park, IL.
