CS Lewis wrote that our passions are sleepy, that we are like little children who are easily pleased with making mud pies in a slum when we have no idea what it means to have a holiday at the sea. There is always more to life than what we can so easily settle for, and in journeying into the deeper parts of our hearts we can better know ourselves, and God, toward healing, and a more abundant life. Counseling can provide a safe place to walk through the struggles of life. Andrea's focus: teens and adults 16+ for individual and couples counseling.

“Life can take you where you least expect it to, and it can throw you for a loop. One of the hardest things to do, is to reach out and ask for help, but it is also the most courageous thing to do.

Our psychological, emotional, and social well being is an important aspect of our overall health. In fact, when our mental health is out of balance it could have a negative impact on our physical health and vice versa. Common factors that affect our mental health include loss of a loved one, medical diagnosis, relational and family issues, difficulty finding life/work balance, job loss or work dissatisfaction, life transitions, and past/current traumatic events. These are part of living and being human. Counseling is one resource that could help you get through these difficult times, to process your feelings and learn coping tools.
Each client is unique and brings specific needs and concerns to treatment. My goal is to help you identify areas in your life creating pain or distress and identify alternate strategies. The goal of treatment is to empower you to identify necessary changes and make choices to effectively alter your life. Treatment is not a recipe book with directives, but rather a collaborative effort to help you overcome any hurdles you are facing and move toward a happier and more fulfilling life. Change often comes in our most distressing moments, but can bring joy and happiness to our futures!
Many of my clients have experienced a traumatic event(s) such as sexual, physical, or emotional abuse, or neglect. The last ones can be harder to define because invalidation is a common form of emotional neglect that is hard to label. Despite what the trauma is or if it falls into one of those categories exactly, if it affects you, then it matters. Clients come to me with confusion and emotional pain that I help them sift through and connect with in order to heal and return to their new normal version of life. I welcome all clients from all walks of life, races, cultures, genders, and preferences.
I provide a nonjudgmental and safe place for you to explore your concerns. Each person receives a personalized approach to set goals and work toward a more fulfilling life. I use biblical and psychological principals to help you achieve insights, make changes, overcome obstacles, and gain balance in life. My clients affirm my warmth, acceptance, encouragement, and pragmatic style of therapy.
Having trouble sleeping? Stressed out, feeling numb, paralyzed or confused? Perhaps you find yourself stuck in the grip of an image of yourself from your childhood, an echo of unkind or absent parents. Many people come to me because they feel hopeless and can no longer find joy or meaning in their lives. Still others are haunted by traumatic events that they can't get out of their heads. Therapy is a powerful healing alliance between therapist and client. I work with and for you; you are the expert on you.

Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LPC-S, LMFT-S
CSCC's approach to counseling is one that first emphasizes the critical need we all have for our stories to be heard and known. Moving from intellectually sharing the details of our lives to building a sense of knowing one another and being together in the context of relationship is a process for which we rarely make time, but it is the crucible for change. In the context of confidentiality and safety, trust can be shared, hurts can be healed, paths can be explored, and life, in all of its complexity, can be celebrated.

I would like the opportunity to walk that road with you. I would be honored to work with you in your quest for better psychological health.
It takes a lot of courage to decide to look for help. It shouldn’t have to feel even riskier finding a therapist who you are comfortable with. I want you to feel like we are a good fit because therapy is like a long hike; sometimes there are steep inclines, sometimes there are beautiful views, but you definitely don’t want to hike with someone you’re not meshing with. Because this is so important, I offer a free initial 30 minute consultation, where you can come, meet me and get an idea of how I would approach working with you to find a way through what you are struggling with.
