Felicia Wallberg, Intern
Serving Women, Couples, Young Adults, & Adolescents
I believe counseling to be a path toward living life to its fullest potential. If you are currently experiencing phase of life transitions, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, feel stuck in old patterns of thinking and being, or have experienced trauma, this may be the right time for you to courageously take steps toward wholeness and vitality. It is through relationships that we are hurt and I believe it’s through safe, supportive relationships that we find healing. I would count it a privilege to come alongside you in your journey. As a therapist, I will create a compassionate space where you feel understood, and able to move at your own pace. Together we will explore your story, identify any past hurts or trauma, reshape your current patterns, and discover your unrealized potential, empowering you to experience the fullness of life, bringing hope to the future.
As a Christian counselor, I use a holistic approach giving attention to psychological, emotional, relational and spiritual facets of your life. I believe that all people are created in the image of God and are highly valuable. You deserve to have your story held with great care as you process and heal. Together we will prioritize and make a plan for forward movement and lasting change. Honoring each person’s individual uniqueness, I use an integrated approach to counseling using such methods as Narrative Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness Interventions.
