Andrea has been providing counseling services for 17 years in the Charlotte area. She is a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counseling Supervisor. Andrea was also a former School Counselor in Charlotte. Andrea works primarily with children, adolescents, and families. She also enjoys working with adults and couples of all ages.
When working with children, Andrea's approach can best be described as a strength-based, holistic approach, which involves viewing all aspects of the child as a whole. She views counseling as a healing process that involves both the child and his or her family. Andrea works with families on setting goals for the child and involving parents in the process. She has extensive training in working with children with ADHD, anxiety, and/or trauma. She also has a wealth of experience in supporting parents throughout the counseling process.
Andrea has a wide range of experience working with grief, divorce, attachment issues, trauma, adoption, ADHD, depression and anxiety, parenting, and relational issues. She is also trained in Internal Family Systems and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and naturally integrates these approaches into her work. Andrea is also trained in Animal Assisted Play Therapy (Level 1). You can often see her canine co-therapist, Scottie, at the office.
Andrea uses a supportive, holistic approach when working with clients. Andrea believes the most important part of the counseling process is the counselor-client relationship. She believes healing occurs through a respectful, collaborative approach that allows for self-exploration. She hopes to help clients discover and learn to trust their own wisdom through the counseling process. Andrea offers a free 15 minute consultation to discuss whether she would be a good fit for your needs.
