My name is Adara Watts Anderson and I am passionate about helping change people’s lives through counseling. People often seek help because they feel stuck, helpless, and overwhelmed by their experiences. Even though change is scary, something in them is also telling them "you can't continue to live this way". In my experience, when people reach the point that they call for help, they are at the perfect place to begin the work of counseling.
My therapeutic approach emphasizes hopefulness, empathy, acceptance, and the provision of a confidential setting for the client to work through their journey.
I am a persistent listener and want to understand each person's unique story and worldview. I provide evidenced-based and client-centered interventions. My goal is to help guide people during difficult or troublesome times while also helping to facilitate change.
I am a graduate of Capella University where I received a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have practiced in residential and community settings as well as private practice and telehealth. I am a Licensed Professional Counseling- Pennsylvania (LPC), Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), a Board Certified Tele-mental health Provider (BC-TMH) and Board-Certified Counselor (NCC) who specializes in helping people with a wide range of issues and diagnoses including developmental disabilities, anxiety, depression and mood disorders, relationship issues, anger management, and self-esteem building. My aim is to create an educational and therapeutic experience so my clients can obtain self-awareness, resolve issues and problems, identify patterns and find the peace in their lives.
I hope you take the time to reach out today!
