Intern, Clinical Mental Health
Counseling sessions address current areas of concern within the realms of emotions, career, identity, and relationships, as well as symptoms stemming from past trauma. I believe that meeting people where they are, making sure they feel heard and seen, and using a collaborative and strengths-based approach in therapy is important in leading people to achieve their goals.
Sue St. Pierre
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
There is a journey one must take in order to connect to the wholeness within themselves and the relationships around them. Through a holistic approach, I help us bring to light those emotions that are holding us back and process them. I am a licensed Clincal Social Worker (LCSW). I received my Master’s in Social Work at the University of Missouri.
I have seen both professionally and personally how growth and healing can occur throughout the therapeutic process. Whether you are seeking change for current concerns or trying to better understand past experiences, I believe everyone is deserving of having their story heard, being treated with compassion, and feeling accepted where they are at.
Taking the leap to seek help can be difficult, especially with the task of finding a therapist that makes you feel comfortable and supported. I’m passionate about providing a space for people to have a sense of control in their therapeutic experience. Clients can expect to address, understand and change areas of their life that may the source of their distress. Here, you can be in charge of your own success.
Intern, Couple and Family Therapy
Moraiah is a current graduate student pursuing a Master’s degree in Couple and Family Therapy at Antioch University New England’s online program; she has a Bachelor of Science in Marketing with a minor in Advertising from Kansas State University.
She understands the complexity of addressing our thoughts and feelings while creating space to discover their true meanings.
I guide trauma survivors, first responders and their families, women with anxiety/perinatal issues, and individuals with anxiety, depression, PTSD/PTSI or OCD to get support, relief, and healing through trauma-informed and evidence-based mental health counseling without judgment.
I work alongside first responder agencies to assist with CISD and wellness check ins to enhance psychological wellness and am a clinician with FRST Midwest and West Coast Post Trauma Retreat (WCPR).
As a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor, I am excited to leverage my personal, professional, and academic experiences in support of others and their pursuit of their best self. I look forward to supporting clients in the exploration of their unique experiences and deepening their awareness in order to have a greater understanding of themselves, as well as a way to alleviate issues.
Over the last several years, I have worked along side those experiencing a variety of symptoms, disorders, and major life transitions. I worked predominately with those experiencing symptoms of complex PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Bipolar Disorder, Chronic Pain Survivors, Depression, and Anxiety based symptoms. I have been trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness, and Attachment-based therapies. More importantly, I believe in treating the whole person through the authentic relationship we create and the safety you feel during the work we do together.
Based on the individual needs and goals of each client, I utilize various approaches within my practice including EMDR, person-centered therapy, attachment-based therapy techniques, CBT, and DBT.
I have experience working with survivors of sexual abuse and assault, anxiety, depression, attachment, and life transitions.
I am passionate about providing a space for people to have a sense of control over their therapeutic experience. I practice from a Person-Centered Therapy (PCT) approach, including Choice Theory (CT) and Reality Therapy (RT). Use of these approaches emphasizes having equality between myself and my clients.
We all come from different walks of life and I value the opportunity to simply connect with people.
Moraiah also acknowledges the importance of creating an inclusive, safe, and welcoming space for clients. The world can feel overwhelming and lonely, and she am passionate about helping others find their light through their darkest moments.
She is open to all demographics including working with children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and families. She also has a deep interest in trauma-informed care.
My extensive experience as a registered nurse has granted me valuable insights into the myriad of concerns people face across different phases of life. I understand the challenges that the combination of work and life can pose, creating a pressure-cooker environment. I’m eager to collaborate with you and embark on a journey to help you feel better. Let’s work together to bring about positive changes in your life.
