Hello, My name is Ardean. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 11 years of experience working as a chaplain and 15 years as a counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, spiritual problems, life and career challenges, I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, short term brief, solution-focused, and person-centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I want to support you in the best way possible. Good results are achieved with regular communication with your counselor. It's even better when those sessions are live--by chat, phone or video. The best results come with weekly video sessions with your counselor. My goal is to help you achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and walk along side you.
I look forward to working with you!I

I've really appreciated Ardean's help over our time together. She took things at a good pace, gave me a lot of time to open up and be reflective, yet challenging enough to help me grow. I really, really valued and remembered a lot of our conversations. It's been quite a bit of time but I'll always be grateful that BetterHelp brought us together.
Ardean helped me tremendously in my growth as person. She always listened and provided advice and compassion.
Ardean has been instrumental in helping me verbalize some of my major inner problems and had helped giving me professional direction in learning how to deal with them, thereby empowering me. A great listener and problem solver.
Thank you Ardean, for being the person you are and for what you do!
Ardean is just a real listener and she cares a lot. She always follows up to see how I'm doing.
Just so grateful to have a therapist that feels like they can relate and comfort as well as analyze and advise. It’s such a balance of ‘friend’ and ‘doctor’. I trust there is no judgement it is such an open safe space but also a professional space with an educated therapist who can accurately and effectively help me.
Ardean is great with her patients. She creates a judgement free atmosphere and preserves patient's self dignity. She provides great showmen of empathy, care, understanding of others, and engagement with her patients. I am blessed to have met Ardean and accept her for help. What she does is a blessing. I wish her the best and for her future endeavors. Thank you Ardean, you have been a great and outstanding counselor.
