Meet Mari Eik
Mari Eik, M.S., LPC-A
Taking this step in finding support for yourself or a loved one is courageous. Making the decision to seek counseling can be challenging and nerve-wracking, but hopefully you come to learn that you made the right decision. I provide support and encouragement in inviting you to process your thoughts, feelings and behaviors free of judgement. I aim to create a safe space in where you will be empowered to develop healthy coping skills and new ways of tackling your day-to-day life, and future challenges. I will walk next to you on this path of healing. Please remember - you are not alone.
I am passionate about building connections with the individuals and families I serve. I enjoy working with children, teens and young adults, addressing anxiety, grief, trauma, parenting, depression, life transitions and interpersonal conflict. When working with your child, I will invite them to express themselves through play to process conflict, big emotions and for them to make sense of the abstract world we adults navigate. For older children I will utilize various techniques to best meet your child’s needs. This modality consists of traditional “talk therapy”, as well as creative interventions and movement.
When working with teens and adults I will tailor my therapeutic approach depending on the client’s needs. I tend to incorporate techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy with a client centered approach. These modalities emphasize a safe environment in where you can explore the way to healing. I practice with a multicultural lens, as I believe it is essential to welcome diversity and meet individuals where they are at.
Please contact me when you are ready to begin the process of healing, I would be honored to work with you, your child or your family. Let us embark on this journey together!
