About Mandi Peek, MS, LPC
It is normal to have questions and uncertainties that need answers in order to decide on the therapist you want to work with. You have a right to get to know the person you will share with. One of the most important factors to success in therapy is that you feel a good fit and connection with your counselor.
What I want you to know is: "While it isn't always instinctual, staying plugged in...intentionally filling your cup with Truth and focus... choosing to govern your life on purpose... is such a trustworthy pathway to wellbeing and goodness and thriving"
Defining characteristics of my counseling practice…
Spirituality in therapy....
Credentials, education, and background….
I am invested in healing at root levels, implementing lasting change and not quick fixes. I lend a perspective to aid the journey of each client as they sort through their past experiences, influences, and suffering to distinguish their true self apart from baggage, masks, crutches, and coping mechanisms that lead to destruction. A satisfying goal is to live authentically with self acceptance and freedom.
My hope is for change at the soul level that won’t be a band-aid over an infected place, but a cleansed healed way to live the life you feel you’ve been missing out on. I am here as a companion to coach and guide with psychological and spiritual resources as you journey toward your personal healing and goals.
I consider myself to belong to a "tribe" of wounded healers: those of us who have been through "life on life's terms" and come out bruised but determined to let those dark spots be redeemed for goodness and blessing. My own healing has been experientially spiritual and my spiritual experience has been distinctly Christian. I have found Jesus to be a place for a sort of "homecoming" - a way of operating that rescues me from meaninglessness - and a relationship that forever protects me from being alone.
There would be no better way for me to live out thankfulness than to honor each client's spiritual journey right where they are. To invite you move in your spirituality in the way that seems to create that very personal experience of your very own "homecoming". To honor the way that seems most authentic for you to move toward God.
