Carey Gauzens, LCSW, CP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Alexandria
If you choose to participate in counseling with me, you will be an active part of the change you are seeking in your life. Many counselors tend to simply listen. I will listen, but I will also actively engage with you--asking questions, giving feedback, and using other activities in the therapy room to help you explore the changes you want to make, and what might be in your way.
I work with people on recovery from trauma, depression/anxiety, and life transitions. I specialize in working with those who are recovering from abusive experiences in childhood/adulthood, and those who are grieving a loss, whether from death, breakup/divorce or life transition.
I find it is a sacred journey to walk with those who have survived loss or trauma, and I feel honored to help those adjusting to difficult life circumstances to move toward healing and reclaiming their lives. If this sounds helpful to you, I look forward to hearing from you.
