Andrea Dresser (LMHC,MS)
Searching for a counselor can be a confusing, frustrating process. Just searching for a counselor can make people question themselves. Am I making too much of this? Why can't I fix this issue myself? Maybe I am crazy!
You are not crazy! When things are not in balance in your life, and you have exhausted your own efforts- it is completely HEALTHY to search out someone who can help you heal. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the crazy thing! People come to me when they (or their child) are:
■out of balance
■sad or depressed
■not sleeping (or sleeping too much)
■not eating (or eating too much)
■having problems in relationships
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I have spent the past twenty years involved in community health as a Health Educator, consultant and mental health advocate. My experience helping people propelled me to go back to school to further hone my skills as a healer. Since graduating with a Masters Degree in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy, I have worked in various agency settings.
I recently moved to Las Cruces and have found this to be a beautiful area of the country. I am excited to be working with people in the Las Cruces community who are searching for a counselor they can trust. Here are just a few of my passions:
I am passionate about working with women suffering with mood and anxiety disorders surrounding childbirth. Growing a family is seen by many as a "beautiful time." For many, there is nothing beautiful about it. I am committed to helping women heal so they can enjoy their lives and their families again.
I love working with famlies who have a child who is struggling. My journey always starts with the child. At the same time, I see how behaviors, hurts, and habits with one family member can impact every member of the family. My goal is to heal both the child and the entire family system so that your family is functioning in a way that makes you love your home again!
Sex is such an integral part of many people's lives. Unfortunately, things can go wrong and it can feel impossible to find someone you can trust to talk about how to get your sex life back on track. I am continuing my education to become a Certified Sex Therapist through AASECT (American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists). I am excited to help individuals, their partners, and couples get through a lack of sexual desire, sexual addiction, infidelity, and other sexual issues.
My style is very individualized, getting to know you, what you are looking to change- and helping you to feel better and love your life again. If you are interested in scheduling a free 15 minute phone consultation, give me a call at:575-448-1350.
