Joan Anderson, RN, MS, LPC
My mission as a counselor is to partner with each individual to achieve their highest level of wellness. I believe in the inherent wholeness of every person, the healing potential of a balanced mind/body connection, and identifying client’s strengths as a foundation to build a collaborative counseling relationship. Establishing a safe and trusting relationship will be prioritized while exploring areas/issues impeding you from your highest level of functioning.
I bring a strong foundation to counseling having been a health care professional for over thirty years working as a registered nurse (RN). This experience has shaped who I am as a counselor and strengthens my resolve to embody compassion, respect, and acceptance in my interactions and relationships.
I tailor counseling sessions to the unique needs of each individual, using mindfulness-based practices, cognitive behavioral interventions, resilience skills, trauma focused therapies, and a variety of other evidenced based practices. I work collaboratively on the issues you identify as priorities and assist with setting mutual goals to know when we are successful. I have experience working with individuals across the lifespan. I am a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner (CHTP), have led substance abuse groups using Dialectical Behavioral skills, and I have experience and training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
