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.

experiences to the therapeutic relationship that enable her to
utilize an eclectic, experiential counseling approach. This approach

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.
