Andrea Vignovich, Licensed Therapist & Owner

Hello! My name is Andrea Vignovich (she/her) and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). An important part of my therapeutic role is to meet you where you are on your journey toward emotional wellness and stability. I believe empathy, empowerment, and connection can help lead you toward your personal goals. In counseling, it is pivotal to create a safe and open space for you to foster growth and learning in yourself and your goals. Seeking counseling can be scary and challenging, however, it can also be rewarding and its effects are long-lasting. I hope to join you on your journey of growth and emotional wellbeing.
