Andrea Flores, MSW, CSW
Certified Social Worker
Andrea believes we are all connected on a deep and intimate level. She understands that we all want the same things in life (to be seen, heard, and loved) but most of us are not taught how to be our truest selves or how to trust and love ourselves.
Andrea enjoys serving others in ways that allow them to unlearn the stories they have been told about who they are, how the world works, and how to create their own unique stamp on the world. Andrea advocates for changing ourselves in order to change the world. Andrea began her university studies at Kaplan University, focusing on human services after experiencing years of severe childhood trauma and abuse from her biological family. At 30 years old, she began a self-journey to learn how to empower herself and others. She soon realized that mental health would be an amazing field to build a career based on her truest passion and purpose- to empower others. Her educational background includes an associate degree in human services from Kaplan University as well as a bachelor’s and master's degree in social work from Brescia University in Kentucky. She currently holds a clinical social work license in the state of Kentucky and is looking forward to obtaining her LCSW.
Her greatest passion is being able to walk beside others as they heal, not only themselves, but also generations of secrets, burdens, and abuse. She is simply a humble guide and companion to those suffering to help remind them of their true and highest selves. She is excited to help others unlock their potential to create the life that they desire while building strong and healthy relationships.
Andrea's favorite approach to therapy is Narrative, DBT, CBT and art/play therapy techniques. She has great experience working with individuals (children, adolescents, and adults) and families with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, behavior issues (ODD, ADHD), personality disorders, OCD, and substance abuse. She has worked with individuals, couples, and families with issues related to divorce, infidelity, abuse, and unresolved issues.
"I help people who are struggling to find a new meaning in life that empowers them to be the highest and truest version of themselves."
