About Me

Hello! My name is Rowena and I am here to accompany you on your journey to healing and growth. It may be a long and difficult one, so I definitely understand you wanting to choose someone that you can count on. Earning the trust of my clients is the most important part in helping them to heal. I want clients to feel safe to be themselves so we can work better together to achieve their therapeutic goals. I have had a lot of personal and professional experience that have helped me to see life from different perspectives and relate to what others may be going through. I also believe that learning is a never-ending process which keeps my mind and heart open.

I enjoy working with children, teens, adults, couples, families and groups from diverse backgrounds that may be dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, grief and loss, trauma, anger, management, LGBTQ+ issues, low self-esteem, abuse, domestic violence, divorce, blended families, relationship/ family conflict and academic/ work/ social problems. My ideal clients want to increase self-awareness and self-love, have the courage to process the role of the past in their current struggles, and will come up with future goals that align with their interests, dreams,
values and strengths so that they can continue to grow and live a meaningful life.

I take a creative approach to counseling and utilize art, music, writing, videos and game/play activities if it fits with the client. I also like to incorporate the interests, dreams, values and strengths of my clients in therapy. I have experience using CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, IFS, Gottman, solution focused, Gestalt, structural family therapy and experiential therapy techniques/activities, but also trust in the simplicity of just listening and asking the right questions to help clients find the answers that they are looking for.  If you have any questions about therapy with me, please do not hesitate to reach out.  I look forward to working with you!
