Loretta Pickford, LPC, NCC
Welcome! I am Loretta Pickford, LPC, NCC. My credentials include: National Certified Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor in Michigan, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Hypnotherapist, and a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach. I hold a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a graduate certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy.
I am passionate about supporting individuals in their life and consider it is an honor to bear witness to the healing journey of her clients. My counseling style focuses on building a relationship with my clients, then working together to explore the behaviors, thoughts, choices, and emotions that contribute to challenges and concerns. I generally focus our sessions in the “here and now” (present), and explore the past as needed.
My approach to therapy blends traditional talk therapy, hypnotherpy, energy psychology, equine therapy, and expressive therapies such as drawing, collage, painting, clay, writing, or other ideas you bring to the session. This blend of talk therapy with other modailities accesses deeper levels of awareness and creates more opportunity for healing and change.
In addition to my education and experience as a therapist, I have over 10 years’ experience as a professional life coach and spiritual counselor. During this time I coached individuals on maintaining life balance and deeveloping a deep sense of fulfillment as they experienced life transitions, worked toward significant goals or managed a small business. My first career included 20 years in the information technology industry providing training, consulting, project management and business process consulting services.
