"When a client is allowed to experience, accept, and become aware of all of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a non-judgmental environment and feel safe doing it, that is when resistance and obstacles become less threatening and change can take place. Then when clients feel ready for change, I see myself as a fellow navigator or traveler with them on life's journey. By working collaboratively together, I help clients work towards the goals that they want to achieve in their life."
I believe in a no-nonsense approach to counseling. I am well versed in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in which we identify your goals and make it happen through honest discussion and practice. Because of my doctorate education through the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I know there are many ways to reach one's goal. We will try hand in hand to make satisfactory progress. I am an Elder with life experience. I enjoy working with children and adults. Life gives us many trials I am amazed by my client's resiliency and commitment to succeed.
I see counseling as a way for people to see healing and positive change in their lives, and I see my role as a therapist to facilitate and support the person working toward that goal. I am especially interested in the healing dynamic a person generates as he/she incrementally and actively increases positive events/actions in all spheres of life (cognitive, social, spiritual, physical, recreation etc.) Setting this dynamic in motion, we work collaboratively to design and carry out a plan that is best suited to the person uniquely and to the presenting issue specifically. This plan may include: cognitive restructuring, emotion processing skills, practicing relational assertiveness, reading books on the topic etc. I, personally, trust my Savior Jesus as I carry out this work with all people.
"I am a Marriage and Family Therapist where I enjoy working collaboratively with families, couples, and individually with adults and teens. My professional practice includes working with depression, anxiety, communication skills, emotional connections, stage of life concerns, and coping skills for stress at home or work. I believe therapy is a place to develop and achieve goals and remind ourselves of our strengths."
"I seek to combine a Christian approach toward family and individual counseling with current insights from the areas of psychology, religion, medicine and science. My particular passion is marital therapy, using a combination of Rational EmotiveTherapy and other counseling methods to strengthen the clients' personal motivation for change and growth."
"I approach therapy with children and families in a holistic way, looking at all aspects of the child, family or individual. I enjoy working with children, families and adults on many issues including mood and thought disorders (depression, anxiety, adjustment disorder), self esteem, grief, loss, parenting issues, postpartum depression and trauma."
"I hold a BA degree in Sociology from UWEC, an AAS degree in Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counseling from Chippewa Valley Technical College and a Master's Degree in Guidance and Counseling Mental Health from UW Stout. I have been practicing since 2001 and have been very fortunate to be able to work with several different populations in many different modalities. I view my career as not only my helping and teaching others but also recognizing that the patient is teaching and helping me in return. That sharing to me is a huge gift that I will never take for granted. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults. Mood disorders, anxiety disorders and trauma are areas of interest for me."
Savannah brings a broad scope of expertise in working with adolescents and adults for issues ranging from mood disorders, anxiety issues and trauma recovery. She also welcomes working with military veterans and service members who may be experiencing Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or having difficulty reintegrating back to civilian life. She is currently accepting new patients. Call (715) 524-4840 or (toll free) 888-867-4840 to learn more or schedule an appointment.
