Bridget Jowid

M.S., LPC Intern, LMFT Associate

Sometimes the journeys we are on require us to pause, seek support, and discover a greater understanding and awareness of ourselves, our families, and our community. We are presented with the challenge to make meaning out of our life situations and discover or create new options. I believe counseling allows us to better understand ourselves so we can recognize and identify new possibilities and options that promote a healthier and happier life.

 

Prior to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, I had over fifteen years of experience working with individuals and families who have experienced trauma and disability. I understand how life challenges can impact an individual, a couple, and a family’s journey. My formal education has prepared me to counsel adolescents, adults, couples, families, and groups. I respect and value the variations of human experiences.
