Andrea Ferrara

(EdS, LPC, NCC, DCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor with over 10 years of experience across the lifespan (ages 4-99) in a multitude of environments. I have worked in my own private practice, inpatient and outpatient settings, crisis call centers, suicide hotlines, and military installations. I work with individuals, couples, and families, and give group presentations for psycho-education.

Sometimes it helps to have a trained, objective individual to talk with when life gets challenging. I am thrilled to partner with you on your journey. I will work with you to help you find solutions to the challenges you are facing, and help empower you to successfully move through difficult times. I work with clients experiencing depression, stress, anxiety, addiction, family conflicts, relationship challenges, career frustrations, and many other day-to-day life experiences and stressors.

I take a goal-focused approach to help you change unwanted behavior and learn new coping skills to manage life situations. I partner with my clients to help them develop the skills they need to achieve their highest good and manage their lives more effectively.

I believe in living life to the fullest and practicing self-care to balance life’s challenges and will help you to do the same.

Andrea Ferrara has been great so far. It's been a couple of weeks, and she is very respectful of me trying to warm up to her and get comfortable which is great!

I didn't get to work with her for long, but within the time we had she gave me much to think about. She's great at getting back to you promptly and checking in with you.

I would definitely recommend not only the app but Andrea to my friends/family. She's very kind, and listens very well. She's got a lot of experience, and talking to her definitely made me feel better about my situation.

Andrea is super nice, supportive, and respective. I respect her and trust that what I talk to her about is kept confidential. I highly recommend her as your counselor and I highly recommend this website.

Andrea is a great counselor. She has been helping me work on myself and bettering my communication skills with people. I enjoy her feedback and her quick responses. She also has introduced me to a few worksheets that I have found very informative and useful to my daily focus on myself. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
