Bridget Jowid

M.S., LPC Intern

We are each on a journey. Parts of that journey sometimes require us to pause, seek support, and seek a greater understanding and awareness of our families, our community, and ourselves. As a licensed professional counselor intern, I understand how trauma, illness, intellectual, emotional and physical disability can impact an individual, a couple, and a family’s journey.

We are presented with the challenge to make new meaning out of our life situations and discover or create new options. I believe counseling allows us to better understand ourselves so that we can recognize and identify new possibilities and options that promote a healthier and happier life.

My formal education, both undergraduate and graduate, has prepared me to counsel adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups regarding topics on varieties of human experiences including but not limited to human development, gender, physical disability, depression, anxiety, domestic violence, sex and sexuality, trauma, and life adjustments.
