Paula Hewitt, MA, LAC

Licensed Associate Counselor

I am committed to providing empathetic support and guidance to individuals seeking mental and emotional well-being. My skills include active listening, evidence-based therapeutic techniques, and fostering a safe environment for personal growth. I am about helping clients navigate challenges and empower them to achieve their goals for a healthier and happier life.

My therapeutic approach is a person-centered humanistic approach that looks at the whole person rather than just a single area of a person's life. In this approach, the client’s needs, experiences, and perspectives take center stage. My belief is that therapists should work collaboratively with clients, respecting their autonomy, and involving them in the therapeutic process as we are a team.
