Authentically U Counseling, LLC - Marilyn Spenadel, MS, LCPC, BCC, ACS, Counselor in Rockville
WELCOME to your Therapeutic HOLISTIC WELLNESS ENRICHMENT CENTER. You want to learn to go with the flow DAILY, live in the here and now? As a Holistic, solution-focused therapist and spiritual coach I specialize in helping adults & adolescents gain insight and mind/body & spiritual strength. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to accept feelings, then let go of mind/body connections to stress, trauma, burning out. Our body CERTAINLY hears what our mind says! By using energy healing techniques you can let go of long-standing feelings, triggers by their roots.
I counsel (Adolescents & Adults) individuals, couples, and families having anxiety, depression, phobias, panic attacks, self-esteem, Grief, relationship/communication issues. I enjoy teaching clients and therapists face to face or Skype. Also, at universities I teach Empowerment Skill-Building Workshops on Stress & Anger Management, mindfulness-meditation, resiliency, EFT/Tapping, breath-work, compassionate listening and connecting.
Learn to be more aware in your moments. Re-write your story, live as your "Authentic-WholeSelf"connected to the bigger picture. With cognitive and somatic techniques you can challenge mistaken beliefs, embody new positive energy & beliefs. See letter testimonials on my website to learn about approaches I use. Contact me today to get started!
