Andressa Marques Paiva, LPC-Associate
Finding a therapist can be overwhelming sometimes, so congratulations on taking the first steps towards a better you! Therapy is a wonderful way to learn self care and introspection, and I’m excited to help you on your journey.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor - Intern supervised by Lorrianne Morrow, LPC-S, BCN. I am from Brazil, and am fluent in English, Portuguese, and in the process of learning Spanish.
I have always been curious and interested in how the brain works. It fascinates me how this organ is capable of so many functions, some of which are still unknown. This curiosity is what drove me to learn more and to help people take control of their lives. I have personally experienced the power of therapy, which made me even more passionate about this profession.
I completed my BA in Psychology in Brazil, and I received my masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of St. Thomas in 2020. While under supervision, I gained extensive experience with individual and group therapy involving children, adolescents, and adults.
I provide individual counseling for children (3+), adolescents, and adults, specializing in Anxiety, ADHD/ADD, Depression, and Trauma. I use various approaches to match the client’s needs, with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, solution-focused, and self-compassion training. I provide a compassionate, safe, non-judgmental space for my clients.
The most rewarding part of being a therapist is witnessing how every human is capable of change. Change is difficult for some and easier for others. Therapy is hard, but if you are willing to do the work, I am confident that together we can make the life changes you’ve been seeking. It would be my pleasure to help you become the best version of yourself and guide you throughout this process of healing and self discovery.
