My counseling style is a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and reality therapy, with a person-centered and multicultural approach. I believe that no two people are alike and experience stressors in their own unique ways. Therapy sessions are client directed while I provide guidance, support, techniques, and clinical insight into the client’s experience. My role is to provide a strong therapeutic relationship through empathy, genuineness, and positive regard in order to enable the individual to develop the skills to change and grow.

I approach therapy in a direct yet compassionate manner believing that long-term sustained change can only happen when growth occurs on the inside and flows outward. My goal is to help my clients walk their own individual path from self-judgment to self-transformation. I use a cognitive behavioral approach which guides you to understand how your thoughts/beliefs, feelings, and behaviors work together to determine your life experiences. Together, we will identify self-destructive patterns that stop you from getting what you want in life and replace them with constructive and goal-achieving ways of thinking and behaving.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the District of Columbia, New Jersey and Delaware. I have been providing therapy since 2016. Many of the clients that I see do not know where to start when it comes to their therapeutic journey. They arrive with a full load and I support them with slowly but surely unloading that weight that they have been carrying. I do this with kindness, compassion, humor, and a healthy dose of reality. I take a strength-based and cognitive-behavioral approach when working with clients.

My approach to therapy involves empowering persons to better understand themselves and acquire the tools to heal and make desired life changes. I utilize a combination of cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapeutic orientations in my practice. Consistent with an emphasis on empowerment is my wholistic focus on total well being. I promote balance across all personal dimensions (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, and social). My life coaching practice draws from a similar wealth of psychological knowledge, however, with more of an educational emphasis. I facilitate the acquisition of problem solving and success orientation skills, aimed at enhancing personal empowerment and life satisfaction.

I'm Andrea Battiola, owner and psychotherapist at Peak Couples & Sex Therapy. Sex is an area of life that can both impact and be impacted by everything else in life. Yet we often feel so alone in our sexual lives with very few places and people to turn to for help. We believe that sexual health and relational well-being are at the core of our overall mental health. Our sexual needs, wants, fears and struggles all matter. I want to create the space for others that my younger self deserved to have when she was growing up, trying to understand how sex and relationships impacted her confidence, identity, values, and needs.

Deep emotional wounds that are ignored, can interfere with enjoying life. Healing means acknowledging the stories behind these wounds, not forgetting them. Therapy plays a role in transforming those wounds into scars that serve as memorials of the hard work you invested to change your view of life from surviving to thriving. I consider it a privilege to be trusted with the vulnerable parts of your life.
