Therapeutic Areas of Interest:

Why I have chosen to work at a pastoral counseling center:

Eve Fox – Therapist LCMHC

Credentials: Masters in Counseling Psychology from Antioch New England

   Graduate School, Keene, NH New England School of Addictions, Bachelor

   of Science Degree Pennsylvania State University

Professional Affiliations: Vermont Mental Health Counselors Association and

   the American Mental Health Counselors Association

Therapeutic Areas of Interest: My therapeutic areas of interest have always

   been to help people of all ages to regain alignment with themselves and the

   world. It is my belief that people who seek support from a counselor have

   fallen out of balance in some way. They are experiencing a need to reestablish

   harmony and a sense of wholeness and well being. Adults, adolescents,

   children, families and couples demonstrate this in many ways. They may be

   experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, addictive behaviors,

   oppositional behaviors, relational challenges, grief and bereavement issues,

   transitional issues, and so much more. They may be experiencing challenges in

   their personal, interpersonal, and spiritual development. They may be

   experiencing a sense of disconnect from the world around them. The work

   that I love to do is to help people to help themselves to realign, regain a

   stronger sense of self and restore a feeling of joy and aliveness.

Why I have chosen to work at a pastoral counseling center: Working at a

   Pastoral Counseling Center provides a unique opportunity to incorporate the

   clients' spiritual and/or religious resources and traditions in a clinical setting.

   During the healing process, many people recognize an inner guidance deep

   within. It is a guidance they can learn to trust. For many, this is the God of

   their understanding. Often when people get in touch with their deepest values

   and begin to live by them, healing takes place when people feel better, they

   are more open to experiencing joy and contributing to the world more fully.
