Resident in Counseling
Ann-Marie is a resident in counseling pursuing an independent license as an LPC. She received her master of arts degree in clinical mental health counseling, with a concentration in crisis intervention & trauma counseling, from the Franciscan University of Steubenville.
Ann-Marie applies the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model in her work to try to address issues as holistically as possible. It is important to her that she works collaboratively with each client to “help them help themselves,” thereby building their sense of self-worth and self-efficacy.
Ann-Marie has worked with adolescents (ages 12-18) suffering from intellectual disability, trauma, and who exhibit severe behavioral issues. The main areas of focus in her work with them were on behavior modification, social skills training, anxiety, and depression. In general, issues she deals with include anxiety, depression, interpersonal issues, behavioral issues, trauma, and life transitions. Ann-Marie integrates the cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral modalities of treatment with the client-centered approach in her counseling relationships.
As a Resident in Counseling, Ann-Marie is currently working towards licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia, and she is under the supervision of Christy Heyn, MS, LPC. If clients have any questions or concerns about Aleksandra’s work, her supervisor can be contacted at email@example.com.
