Counseling Experiential with Andrea Anderson
I am a mindfulness-based psychotherapist and Crisis Prevention Intervention Instructor. Trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, I have worked with people of all ages and diagnoses in psychiatric inpatient settings. I have a BS in Cognitive, Linguistic, and Psychological Sciences from Brown University and am pursuing a MA in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling Psychology at Naropa University.
I offer equine-facilitated learning for kids, adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups. I believe that interactions with horses, llamas, and goats offer a unique opportunity to explore patterns, relationships, perceptions, and emotions in a fun yet powerful way. I aim to help clients identify their inner strengths and resources and feel a deeper sense of connection and integration. I incorporate mindfulness practice, dream work, creative expression, and psychodrama in my sessions. I believe in the basic goodness of every person and that a nonjudgmental approach is absolutely essential for the therapeutic process. I offer a sliding-scale fee.
