Coryanna (she/her) is a fully Licensed Professional Counselor and is board certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors. She received her BA in Psychology and MA in Counseling, both at Eastern Michigan University. Along with a feminist and multicultural approach, she also practices from an attachment approach, understanding that we all have baggage from our family of origin and significant experiences during childhood. Coryanna works from a Wellness Model, as opposed to the Medical Model. The Medical Model pathologizes and only treats symptoms, while the Wellness Model treats the individual as a whole, considering such things as the sense of belonging within a community and/or family, life purpose and fulfillment, and emotional/psychological strength within.
Throughout her counseling journey, Coryanna has had the invaluable experience of working with individuals and families of diverse backgrounds and needs, including, but not limited to, LGBTQIA individuals and parents, individuals and families of various ethnicities, religions, legal status, and non-traditional families with single parents, no parents, or other family members stepping up to be the parent(s). Coryanna works to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for each session that is free from judgment. She approaches each session with an open mind to meet the client wherever they might be on their life’s journey.
Coryanna is poly and kink aware, trained and certified in many evidence-based practices. She is trained to treat with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and is working on becoming a certified EMDR therapist. She primarily works with clients who are coping with trauma and PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, self-acceptance/self-compassion, procrastination/rumination, communication issues, relationship counseling, polyamory/consensual non-monogamy, parenting, and LGBTQIA+ issues.
