Rhonda Cowan, Phd
The therapy process can be a tumultuous, intense, and intimate experience. Therefore, I strive to provide a safe, supportive, and compassionate space for this process to unfold. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor and trust that you are the expert regarding your life. This process is a personal journey of emotional healing that I, as your therapist, am given your permission to join. It is of utmost importance that I hear and understand your concerns to assist in your exploration and goal setting. I utilize a holistic approach to therapy that is inclusive of social, mind, body, and spiritual aspects. Specifically, my approach assists you in identifying, acknowledging, and integrating all aspects of self-in-relation to your concerns and other areas of your life. My approach highlights strengthsbased clinical work. I have been working within the mental health field for over fifteen years and use these various experiences to inform my integrative approach. My areas of focus include and are not limited to the intersection of medical and psychological issues, trauma, depression, anxiety, and multiculturalism.
