Andrea Ferrara

(EdS, LPC, NCC, AFC, BC-TMH)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor with almost 15 years of experience across the lifespan (ages 4-99) in a multitude of environments. I have worked in my own private practice, inpatient and outpatient settings, crisis call centers, suicide hotlines, and military installations. I work with individuals, couples, and families, and give group presentations for psycho-education.

Sometimes it helps to have a trained, objective individual to talk with when life gets challenging. I am thrilled to partner with you both on your journey. I will work with you to help you find solutions to the challenges you are facing together, and help empower you to successfully move through difficult times as a healthy team. I work with clients experiencing depression, stress, anxiety, addiction, family conflicts, relationship challenges, career frustrations, and many other day-to-day life experiences and stressors. I have worked with couples of all types, and help to increase healthy communication, respect between partners, and help them meet the goals they are seeking.

I take a goal-focused approach to help you change unwanted behavior and learn new coping skills to manage life situations. I partner with my clients to help them develop the skills they need to achieve their highest good and manage their lives more effectively.

I believe in living life to the fullest and practicing self-care to balance life’s challenges and will help you to do the same.

Written by D.E. on Jun 08, 2021 after counseling with Andrea for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I don't have much of a free schedule to participate in more than the asynchronous chat feature, but I've been happy just to have someone knowledgeable to share my thoughts with. The worksheet has been a great resource as well.
