Savanna F. Keator, MA, LMHC
Life is never without challenges, and in today’s modern living, we are often left juggling chronic stress and problems in multiple areas of life. This can, understandably, take a toll, and lead to much larger issues if we are not equipped to manage both the everyday stresses of life, as well as larger unexpected challenges that may arise through time. My goal as a psychotherapist is to help my clients expand their awareness around the difficulties they are experiencing in their life, as well as how to cope with challenges, large and small, so that they can become their most realized, fulfilled, and resilient selves.
I have over four years of experience working with individuals dealing with myriad challenges, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, relationship issues, life stressors, and chronic health problems. I take a person-centered approach to therapy, meaning I believe that the individual is the expert on their life experience. It is my job, as a psychotherapist, to meet you there with unconditional positive acceptance.
I strive to create a warm, inviting, and safe space in therapy and view the work with clients as a collaborative effort. I believe that there is no “one size fits all” approach to counseling. Though my therapeutic framework is rooted in psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapy, I often work in interventions and techniques from other disciplines.
