Meet Andrea. Andrea is a licensed clinical marriage and family therapist (LCMFT), working as an associate with Tiffani Stevenson Lloyd, LLC. She loves helping individuals, couples, and families achieve growth through increased understanding.
Thoughts on therapy. One of the biggest obstacles for personal growth is not knowing where to start. As we swim around in a whirlpool of confusion, sometimes we just need a lifeline to help us put our energy in the right direction. Clients have amazing capacity for change and are already tackling their problems with every solution they can think of. Therapy isn’t about working harder, just differently. Grab onto the lifeline and take advantage of an outsider’s perspective to help you move in the right direction.
Experience. Andrea received her education and clinical training at University of Maryland, completing degrees in Psychology (B.A.) and in Marriage and Family Therapy (M.S.). She has seen clients ranging from 4 years old to 97 years old in a variety of settings. She has conducted medical family therapy in hospital settings, researched PTSD and military family resilience with the Department of Defense, and treated mental illnesses and relationship issues at a mental health agency in Las Vegas.
Specialties. Andrea specializes in couple’s therapy for clients experiencing marital discord, communication issues, infidelity, sexual dysfunction, and addiction recovery. She also helps families work through behavior challenges, grief and loss, divorce, and mental illness. Andrea has extensive experience helping individuals address issues such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, and self-esteem.
Treatment Approaches. Using Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapies as her guide, Andrea employs thoughtful insights, encouraging optimism, and an appropriate push to help you break out of your negative spiral and jump into a pattern of growth. Working with Andrea, you will learn how to focus your efforts in the right direction and experience positive changes in your life.
