About Me

Why I am the therapist for you:
Being able to reach for help is a crucial step in your decision to make a change in your life. Regardless of what comes across in our lives, we have the ability to choose our way, to challenge ourselves through our struggles, and become stronger individuals. I have thirty-five (35) years of therapeutic experience to apply to your situation, to help you navigate the areas you have identified that you need help with. With my experience, I can assist you with facing the challenges of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress, domestic violence, ADHD, physical, Substance Usage Disorder, grief, and relationship issues. I incorporate a vast range of clinical interventions into my practice: CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Person-Centered, Anger Management, and Psychoanalytic Treatment.

 I am a highly trained clinician who enjoys working with a multicultural population. I treat my clients with sensitivity and respect and provide a safe space for them to express themselves. Listening to others in a caring and empathetic manner has been crucial in my ability to develop trusting relationships with others. I maintain a non-judgmental stance with an awareness of one's cultural beliefs and values and provide an atmosphere where one has the ability to cope through difficult times within their lives.
I am also here to assist you in navigating treatment programs that provide individual, group, and family counseling, address a wide variety of issues and connect you to community services to optimize your functioning in the community.

Written by A.D. on Nov 22, 2021 after therapy with Andrea for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts

Starting therapy with Andrea was very easy and comfortable. From session to session, she she picks right up where we left off without skipping a beat. Her feedback is subtle, not overbearing. Andrea is warm and present, and I feel as if I will be able to solve and/or cope with my problems after talking to her.

Andrea is very attentive, patient and brings up questions for me to ponder. Also, she validates my feelings in context of what I have disclosed to her. I would
definitely recommend her.

I’ve been working with Andrea for over three months. I can see the progress I’ve made. She gives concrete feedback and supportive options in dealing with stress and anxiety. I am very happy I was matched with her.

I’ve only had one session with Andrea but I can already see her not only responding to the concerns I’ve brought up but also coming up with methods and techniques to cope and manage my anxiety. She also taught me some terminology that made sense and clarified some of the concerns I brought up.

Andrea Harewood is very caring and responsive to my needs. She answers all of my questions, listens very well, and give me solutions, she knows right away what I am going through, one trait I like about her is that she is a fully devoted Christain so she encourages me with my spiritual feelings. I would recommend her all the way.

Andrea is a compassionate listener. She lets you express concerns until she is sure she understands. She guides you to possible solutions. She will also tell you if she thinks you have the wrong idea about an issue. I felt better after talking with her. I would request her again.
