Seth Atwater, MAMFT
Owner / Founder / CEO

        I developed External Experiential Processing (EEP) using media to help people process through life struggles. I have been developing and using EEP now for over 15 years. I have found the tools I developed to be especially helpful to couples who are struggling to find joy in their marriages and with women who have suffered from the trauma of abuse to vercome the effects and to be able to live normal lives. I have worked with a wide variety of clients throughout my time as a therapist and as a life coach.

        I graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Forest Institute of Professional psychology, and completed all the course work for a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. In my studies, I received training in Cognitive and Objective Psychological Assessments, Substance Abuse Treatment and Recovery, and Career Counseling as specialties beyond the traditional therapy and clinical training.

        I have been happily married to my wife Jessica for over 20 years. We have 8 children ages 8 to 22, a son-in-law and one grand child. I am an avid basketball player (played through high school on a team but now I just enjoy playing pick up games mostly with members of my church). I love outdoors activities, especially hiking. I moslty enjoy visiting with people, getting to know them and serving in the Monett Missouri community. 

        I have served for ten years in the military 6 of which I served as an Arabic translator during the War on Terror. I served a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, in Nicaragua Central America. I loved my service for my country and for my God and hope to continue serving God and my country and community through the work we are doing at Atwater Healing. 

Seth Atwater JR.
Front Desk attendant / Reception

My name is also Seth Atwater, and as you can probably tell I am Seth’s (the CEO’s) eldest son. I am currently living at home, so we often drive to work together. At Atwater Healing I work as the desk attendant and do scheduling for anyone who comes in to the home office, as well as doing a little IT work whenever it’s helpful. I am really proud of the work my dad is doing, and I’m happy to be a part of it!

Before I started working for my dad I served a 6 month service mission in our area, and then worked for several years as a caretaker for the physically and mentally disabled. Through these opportunities I met many great people and developed an even stronger respect and love for the local community that I grew up in, and for the awesome people who I served.

When I’m not at the desk (and sometimes when I am) I can usually be found writing. I’m an aspiring fantasy author and I have my own website that I publish some of my stories on. My other hobbies include reading, running, meditation, and reading manga/watching anime.

Robyn Chrysler M.S.C.A.P
Associate Life Coach

        Hi, I’m Robyn coach and mentor for individuals, children, families and business professionals.  I believe with my whole heart helping others is my calling in life. I like to help figure out the hard stuff, the stuff that looks fairly straightforward on the outside, but actually feels like tug of war on the inside.  These things can be from fears, trust issues, feeling stuck in life or feelings of depression to just assisting with communication and relationship issues.  If you’re just wanting some guidance and direction, at the very least just to feel better about what’s happening, or understand why it’s happening, let’s talk!

        The idea is to help get you moving forward and create positive relations along with positive thought processes, my goal is to make your journey easier, yet hold you accountable to how you can be in control of where you go next.  Atwater Healing’s purpose, to help you identify the changes you want to make and to give you the knowledge and tools to understand yourself and the change you are making aligns perfectly with my passion to help you succeed.  Together we will give you the action tools that enable you to make those changes and to help you create these changes in the most economical, efficient and lasting way possible. 

        As a parent are you noticing a shift in your child’s behavior, are they having a tough time at school or navigating life? We want our children to feel secure, loved, confident and safe- from all things, bullying, social media, societal standards, and life’s unfortunate circumstances. Unfortunately, the truth is events, people, and things affect our children in ways that matter to us but often getting them to open up and divulge any information to help them is challenging to say the least.  Sometimes even the most confident of children and teens still cannot find the words to express themselves. These feelings, emotions, and traumas live deep within our children and they want to release them but doing so can be difficult.  This is where I come in and work with your child as a mentor and coach and help them through this process at eye level.  We do this without the need to earn approval of others which gives them the ability to share and open up to someone who is working with them at their level. Your child will have the floor time to talk about their dreams, aspirations, fears and yes even those unfortunate events hiding inside.  These sessions adhere to a clear understanding that diagnosis is not the goal, the only issue is their well-being and with the pressure off and full parental love and support behind them, your child can release, let go, and soar! 

        Personal Bio: I hold a Masters of Science in Child Psychology and Adolescent Development along with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Marketing. I am a parent to 3 wonderful adult children, currently have 3 beautiful grandbabies and have between 4-7 foster children at any given time. I owned a state licensed large preschool for 5 years, sat on the NAPSACC children’s board, and have been coaching a range of children’s sports since 2001, which allowed me to put my passion for children and families to great use mentoring and coaching them through life. 

        In my spare time I rescue and rehabilitate animals with my children and we love spending time on any type of water. 

Sara Lassiter, BS MFC
Associate Life Coach

        My name is Sara Lasiter. I received my bachelor’s degree from BYU Idaho in Marriage and Family Counseling in 2021. I went back to school just before I had my fifth child, and I decided to pursue this degree because I wanted to learn how to improve my own family relations. As I studied, I realized that I love teaching and I wanted to help others learn the things that were blessing my family. I came to work with Seth for my internship in 2021, and as I learned the Awareness Tools, I saw how much they were helping me understand the things my classes were trying to teach me. I want to help others understand how being aware and intentional can help them make big changes in their lives. I have loved working in both a group setting, as well as with clients one-on-one.

        My husband and I have six children, and my desire to be a better wife and mother has motivated me to continue my education. It has been very fulfilling to be able to see the improvements that have come to my own family through my work with Seth. We love spending time together as a family, especially going camping, playing video games, and playing board games together. Our whole family loves to read and working with Seth has helped me see how literature can be used to teach people how to overcome the trials they experience. I’m excited to continue working for Atwater Healing because of the opportunities I will have to serve and teach others.
