Marlene Baggs-Hoenig, Biblical Counselor and Life Coach
Life happens. Sometimes we have difficulty responding to ‘what happened’. It is not what happened but how we respond to what happened that makes all of the difference. My practice will teach individuals to be their own therapists in how they process life events and world view.
Depression, anxiety, broken relationships and confusion can all be signs that clients need someone to walk them through difficult parts of their life’s journey utilizing clinical means. Christian Counseling is my specialty.
Through a combination of cognitive behavioral, Restart Brain Retraining, Cinderella Released Joy Recovery, Freedom in Christ Sessions (Dr. Neil Anderson’s Material), and insight-oriented therapies we will search beyond the surface level for causative themes and factors that can be changed through changes in behavior.
For those clients who desire to address issues of faith, I am equipped to be of assistance by applying a spiritual orientation in addition to traditional cognitive and rational emotive therapy. I will utilize some of the latest assessment tools to enhance the treatment process.
My area of special interest and experience is working with individuals experiencing depression, victims of violence and trauma and broken relationships. I perform individual, family therapy and work with women who have been in domestic violence, human trafficking, divorce, trauma, homelessness and substance abuse.
I have been actively involved in counseling individuals, young adults for over 23 years.
