Tia Lawler, MA, LPC Intern
I began my career in mental health providing services in residential care environments. I have worked with children and youth, adults, and seniors both in residential and outpatient settings. I have worked with a variety of mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, grief and loss, and body image concerns. I also have experience working with substance disorders.
I enjoy a variety of activities in beautiful Central Oregon. I love to hike and camp with my dogs. In the summer I enjoy swimming and canoeing. I am an incurable rock hound and love finding treasures wherever I go. At home I enjoy a number of arts and crafts including sewing, knitting, spinning, paper crafts, beading, basket making, and many more. I believe having things in your life that bring you joy and not just important but are vital to a healthy happy life.
I am passionate about helping people find peace in their lives and enjoy watching people grow and achieve their personal goals. My purpose in our work together is to offer a listening ear, encourage you to clarify your needs and goals, and offer support for learning effective ways to manage stress, and improve resilience. I believe that the only expert on your life is you. I can offer skills and support, however, I will not tell you what you should or should not be doing in your life.
