Naomi Morrison-Cohen, BA
Naomi will complete her Master of Arts in Counseling at St. Edward's University in August 2018, and is on track to become a Licensed Professional Counselor. Naomi received her Bachelor of Arts from the Johnston Center at the University of Redlands, where she crafted her own degree entitled "Human Behavior & Creative Expression: Psychology, Sociology, and Studio Art." She then spent two years working as a preschool teacher, where she was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with children and parents from a variety of backgrounds. This experience sparked and informed her interest in families, intergenerational narratives, and the importance of relationships.
As a therapist, Naomi strives to foster a safe, warm environment free of judgment. She believes that therapy should be a collaboration between clients and clinician, and is passionate about empowering people to make their own choices and to forge their own path through moments of adversity. She believes that empathy and perspective taking are imperative for relational growth both in and out of the therapy room. She enjoys working with a diverse array of clients and is particularly interested in helping people work with issues related to anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, women's issues, adolescence, and moments of transition.
