Choose Counseling To Choose A Better Life!
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years of experience, I hope to provide you a safe place to share your emotional pain while working together to find relief from your suffering. I am not here to judge your journey but to walk along side of you and to help you make choices that are healthy for you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
In counseling I draw from a variety of theories: psychodynamic, solution-focused, systems, cognitive behavioral, transactional analysis and brief therapy. As a Christian I can bring Spirituality into the session but only if you are comfortable with this.
I also provide equine-assisted (horse-assisted) therapy. Equine-Assisted Therapy (EAT), is a treatment that includes equine activities and/or an equine environment in order to promote emotional growth in persons suffering from Anxiety, Depression, ADD, Marital Strife, PTSD and more.
I work with individuals, couples, adolescents and families. Much of my work is helping you to mend relationships. The majority of my clients have experienced some sort of trauma whether that is through affairs, war (military families) or sexual/emotional/physical/verbal abuse. I have been privileged to serve a vast array of clients from stress management to disorders of schizophrenia and I am honored to hopefully get the chance to serve you.
Please contact me for further information or to make an appointment.
We highly recommend Mrs. Friedel for couple’s therapy as she has been a great help to us. She was sincerely concerned about our problems and helped us understand who we are as individuals and as partners. We were able to overcome significant relationship hurdles and currently enjoy a happy marriage. Her caring, nuturing, and courteous approach made us feel comfortable and safe.
I went into my sessions with Calleen crying, feeling I was not worth being loved. Now I have stopped crying and am moving forward. I think of her as a great “friend”.
Calleen has been a Godsend to our marriage. She effectively uses a balance of relationship therapy techniques and Christian principles to help us navigate our marriage challenges. She has truly been a blessing in our life.
