Farnvenessa farn is a licensed professional counselor. She sees clients in Watertown and Lake Mills. She describes her background and approach to therapy as follows: “My practice centers around building relationships and learning how to take care of oneself and others. I am curious about people and how they come to be in my office. I find that people come to therapy hoping to find someone to tell them the answers, and my goal is to help people become aware of the answers they already have: I am not the expert on your life, you are. My practice is based in attachment theory and trauma recovery, helping people understand the physiological and developmental processes behind their behaviors and guiding them towards lasting change while providing a caring and compassionate place to heal. I graduated from UW-Whitewater with an MS in Community Counseling and I have advanced training in Trauma Recovery and Substance Abuse. I have recently completed Level II training in EMDR and I have training in Music Imagery. My approach to therapy is very creative, using art, music, and play to build the therapeutic relationship and promote emotional expression. I see the relationship that we will build together as vitally important to the healing process. I work with a broad range of ages from older children to older adults and I work with a number of issues including mood disorders, adjustment concerns, school and family issues, as well as LGBTTTIQ concerns. I see our work together as a collaborative effort from a humanist, non-judgmental perspective. Everyone has a story and I would like to know yours. Pull up a chair and let’s talk.”
