Counseling Service

Individuals enter counseling for a variety of reasons. Spirit and Associates believe the ultimate goal of the counseling relationship is to assist the client with achieving self-growth and empowerment. Penny Pennachi provides a safe and constructive environment for individuals to explore and identify personal barriers to living a productive empowered and fulfilled life.

Life experiences, learned behavior, personal belief systems, grief & loss, addictions, trauma & abuse, codependency & Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) issues and domestic violence can disrupt and limit our ability to experience and create the healthy life we envision for ourselves.

Statistically stated, the most effective healing regimen includes individual and group counseling combined with an on-going avenue of available support i.e. Twelve-Step meetings, church and/or other community support organizations that are self-help in nature.

Ms. Pennachi brings both education and personal experiences to the therapeutic relationship that enable her to utilize an eclectic, experiential counseling approach. This approach includes but is not limited to cognitive restructuring theory and technique; family/systems & family of origin; motivational, empowerment & self-advocacy; twelve-step philosophy and addictions psychology. She presents at Retreats on various self-growth and motivational topics.

Individual and Group Counseling Services include but are not limited to the following:

  • ACOA & Codependency

  • Addictions

  • Family Systems and Family of Origin

  • Abuse, Trauma & Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Parenting

  • Relationship & Boundary Issues

  • Anger & Domestic Violence (victim and perpetrator)

 

 
Group Counseling

Many people participate in group therapy in an attempt to alleviate specific problems, for example, depression, anxiety, addiction, grief, anger, eating disorders, etc. Others participate in group therapy to enhance their personal growth and development. Still others find the structure, education and support of group therapy to be an invaluable incentive for following through with personal goals and desired life change. Whatever the reason...group therapy is one of the most effective tools utilized in an individual's personal development and healing process.

Ms. Pennachi also offers several non-traditional Motivational Groups where she serves in a combined role of Coach, Therapist and Nurturer/Support person. These groups are specifically designed for individuals who are working with empowerment, self-advocacy and the courage to pursue and follow their dreams.
