Meet Joan Hause, MA, MFA, LPCC
Therapist, Clinical Director, Owner of Indigo Counseling Center
I love to work with "creatives" of all types--writers, artists, musicians, actors, website designers, programmers, graphic designers, gardeners, bakers, thinkers, spiritual questers, readers, poets, entrepreneurs, teachers, therapists, students, bloggers, learners. I help people to unlock creativity, overcome procrastination and find a work/creative life balance. Click on the "Blog" page to read my pieces on creativity.
I specialize in helping people who have depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, life transition. I have specific skills and strategies I use to help people lower depression and anxiety. Some of these tools can involve thinking strategies, life movement, behavioral activation.
I also work with the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities. I work with diverse age, gender, spiritual, racial and other diversities. I work collaboratively with clients in order to help them find their truth, their path, their way. I love to meet new people and learn about their lives, their stories.
I am a counselor, writer, teacher and supervisor. I have two master's degrees--an MA in Counseling Psychology and the other is a MFA in Writing. As a writer, I have written a memoir, essays, blog pieces and am currently working on a book of poems.
I bring my writing and creative background to my work as a therapist. I do traditional "talk" therapy, and also for those who are interested I use creative techniques such as writing, art and poetry therapy.
