My name is Andrea Garraway, MA, LCAS, ICAADC, LPC, CSAPCr. I am a person-centered and solutions-oriented clinical professional. My counseling style, while laid-back, promotes total wellness through active learning to improve the quality of life. I am dedicated to exceptional care for adolescents and adults. With over eight years of clinical experience, I have been described as warm, insightful, compassionate and respectful, with a pretty good sense of humor. The aim of the service is to help individuals strive for success, purposeful behaviors, connectedness with others and conscious actions and it is achieved through therapy or life coaching. I believe in meeting you where you are and together, we can create a treatment or a ‘next step’ plan that will help you experience growth.
Together we can focus on identifying your strengths and to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. I believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and have the opportunity to make changes in their life if they have the desire.
The decision to start the journey of introspection, self-evaluation and enhanced life is serious and all-encompassing, however, you have taken the first and most important step. One of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou says, "my mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style". My mission is to help you find the best way to overcome and thrive in YOUR life. Although, it will take time and hard work on your part to make the changes you want to see made, I am an ally, together we can make this a reality.
I look forward to working with you!

Andrea has been a beam of light in my life! I haven’t known her for long but she has made a tremendous impact on the way I perceive my trauma and deal with current situations in my life. She is so much more than just a therapist that you just talk at, her interactions are understanding and kind and she offers absolutely amazing and useful advice, and concrete ways to deal with my life. You will see results right away by talking to her. Andrea’s a star.
Andrea has been such a positive influence on my life in such a short time! We have only been working together for a couple of weeks but I felt immediately comfortable and understood by Andrea, who approaches our sessions in a laid back "chatting with an old friend" style, which suits me so perfectly. Andrea has gone above and beyond by making small lifestyle changes along with me, so we can check in with each others progress. It's so grounding for me! Thank you, Andrea :)
