Penelope J. Preston, MA, LCPC, Counselor in O Fallon
Sometimes in life, we can feel a bit off track. I can help you regain direction. I conduct individual counseling sessions with adults (18 and older). If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move your life in a new direction, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. My office provides a comfortable and safe place to address your concerns.
I employ a Cognitive Behavioral therapeutic approach to assist clients with identifying unhelpful core beliefs, negative thoughts, and patterns that may be impeding personal growth. I also apply a psychodynamic approach encouraging client self awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behavior. Call me for a free phone consultation.
