"Andrea is one of the most caring, compassionate, dedicated, intuitive, and highly skilled therapists that you will meet. She helped me navigate one of the hardest times of my life and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her support. In addition to providing exceptional therapy during our sessions, Andrea possesses a vast knowledge of effective tools, strategies, and resources. No matter what you’re seeking therapy to address, I have great confidence that Andrea will be as helpful to you as she has been for me."
“It was such a privilege to be able to work with Andrea. I truly felt that we were a partnership in figuring out solutions that worked for me and met my goals. As a member of the LGBTQ community, it can be difficult to find a therapist who will listen without judgment. I never felt judged by Andrea, but rather accepted, listened to, and trusted to be an expert in my own experiences. Andrea is incredibly knowledgeable, but also always willing to do more research if she doesn’t have an answer right away. She also made sure that we went at my pace, and I always felt safe, which is especially important when doing EMDR. I highly recommend Andrea as a therapist for anyone who is ready to make positive and lasting changes in their life.” CR
"Our family has worked with Andrea for 10 years. She’s been a great resource for our family. She was referred to us by another therapist when we were looking for someone for our elementary school daughter. Since then she has worked with me, my daughter and my son, and also met for parent consultation.. When things come up we are so happy to have her to talk to. We may do a couple of appts or a series of appointments depending on the situation. Her history of working with families, professional experience, meaningful insight and gentle, calm style work great for us. We will continue to work with her as situations arise."
"I've had several therapists in the past, and none of them have helped me as much as Andrea. My sessions with Andrea have helped me move past difficult emotions I've had my entire life. Andrea provides compassionate, non-judgmental insight into my life and relationships while helping me work through difficult experiences from my past. I would absolutely recommend Andrea as a therapist."
"Working with Andrea over the past year has enabled me to make some hard decisions with the support I needed as well as provide guidance with emotional management. Andrea is very insightful and has the ability to understand exactly where you are coming from with the ability to provide useful feedback. Great listener and highly skilled in her field."
"I have known Andrea for approximately 17 years, and have used her services on and off throughout those years to assist me through difficult life events as well as learning to manage day to day stress. Andrea’s approach to therapy is working with the mind, body and spirit. Integrating all three pieces for me has made a difference in how I have handled each obstacle my crazy life has thrown at me. Andrea is extremely comfortable talking about and being around death. Nothing seems to really phase her. She introduced me to mindfulness practices and was patient and persistent as I was a slow learner. If you are considering using Andrea to assist you with life’s challenges, I can’t recommend her highly enough! Five stars."
"Andrea Dugan is the very first therapist I've worked with, and thank goodness I found her. I was a bit of a hot mess. So after a couple of sessions, she suggested EMDR therapy, which I'd never heard of before. Once I looked into it I agreed - not only because I also thought it was the right course of action, but because I truly trusted Andrea to get me through my years of childhood trauma and out to the other side. She did it with flying colors. WE did it. Today, I'm fully in control of my feelings and reactions concerning my childhood and my family. I never realized how much of that trauma was internalized in me physically until the layers began peeling away. SO much relief now. If you're reading this and considering booking a session with Andrea, please do. You'll thank yourself later."
"After trying a few different therapists over the majority of my life for depression and anxiety, Andrea helped in my healing like no other counselor had been able to. Her skills, including using EMDR, seemed to get to the root causes of several aspects of my issues in a relatively short time. I went in not realizing that some of my early experiences were considered traumas and were stored in my limbic system where decades later they continued to compromise my mental health. I honestly feel that in the capable hands of Andrea, each EMDR session was equal to several hours of other types of treatment I’ve experienced. Andrea is not only highly skilled in EMDR, she’s also one of the best I’ve encountered in talk therapy approaches. She offered a conscious presence, calm acceptance, patience, and seemed to always know just where to go in a session. That said, she was equally sensitive to how I felt I wanted to proceed and at what pace. I always felt safe with her and recommend her with the highest regard. For the first time in my life, I’m “graduating” from therapy feeling a level of balance I haven’t enjoyed in decades!"
