Lydia is a psychotherapist completing her state licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). She graduated with her Master’s Degree in Counseling from Crown College.
Lydia uses a variety of therapeutic approaches with clients including person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, solutions-focused, and the Immanuel Approach. She desires to meet clients wherever they are in their healing process without judgment. Lydia provides individual and couples therapy to women, men, and adolescents (16+) for a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, divorce and separation, relationships, affairs, low self-esteem, adoption, abortion recovery, adjustment to life changes and stages, and trauma. Lydia has over six years of experience working with teenagers and adults in a social service setting and she completed her clinical training here at Hardy & Stephens Counseling Associates.
Her special interests include helping women who have or are enduring trauma, marital discord or affairs, divorce, adoption issues, abortion recovery, those questioning their faith, and stress management. Her faith in Jesus as the true healer guides her and is her source of life. She believes a work-life balance is key and invests her time in the great outdoors: camping, hiking, biking, daily walks, beach days, fishing, and road trips with her husband, extended family, friends and her 7-pound Miniature Pincher.
