About me

My name is Alanna Goestenkors and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 22 years licensed experience in the medical and mental health field providing services for children, adolescents and adults.

I have worked in the fields of medical and community mental health. Some of my experience includes treating issues relating to grief and loss, end of life issues, depression, anxiety disorders, adjustment disorders and stage of life transitions.

My counseling style is warm and empathetic with roots based in trust and respect. I utilize a client centered, strength based, and solution focused approach to promote a positive therapeutic climate and build trust. I use an integrative perspective, utilizing cognitive behavioral and psycho-dynamic therapies, tailored to your particular needs and goals of counseling. I believe the goal of therapy is to see your own goals met and therefore I individualize treatment planning to meet your specific needs.

Choosing to involve oneself in the counseling process is a step toward growth and reaching your full potential in life and I look forward to assisting you in this important journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alanna Goestenkors. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Alanna is a fantastic listener and creates a warm, safe space to talk. I feel overwhelmingly supported by her, and I feel confident that she will continue to help me to successfully work through my issues. She brings empathy along with a wise perspective to any given scenario, and she shares physical tools (e.g. worksheets) that I can use to have better self-awareness and to empower me to help address my issues in the future. I feel that I am making good progress and I am thankful to have her as my therapist.
