About Andi

I am a graduate-level intern starting my career in counseling and plan to graduate in August 2022 with my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University. 

 

I graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor’s in Communication, Sciences, and Disorders in 2014. I worked in public schools and outpatient clinics as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant for 5 years where I gained experience working with children with a wide variety of disorders and disabilities, primarily children with autism spectrum disorder.

 

I decided to pursue a career in counseling in order to better help children, teens, and young adults build their self-esteem and confidence. It’s hard feeling like there’s something "wrong" with you and not knowing what you need help with. As a counselor, I strive to be a support for those who are in need of validation, support, and coaching through life’s many obstacles. 

 

Counseling changed my life. And I want to help others make positive changes and better choices in theirs. I create a safe, comfortable, and supportive space for my clients and aim to take an overall mindfulness-based approach while creating individualized care. 

 

While I enjoy working with clients of all ages and backgrounds, I have a passion for working with school-aged children and teens and helping them navigate and communicate their feelings and emotions. When working with children, I believe it is important to take a family-systems approach by including the family in the child’s care. I believe that mental health and physical health go hand in hand and so I take a whole-person and holistic approach that includes looking at a person’s mental, physical, nutritional, and spiritual health. My goal is to help individuals create and maintain balance in these areas to build a healthy foundation for their life.
