Hello, my name is Dawn Tipton. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed School Counselor (PEL). I earned my MA in mental health counseling and school counseling at Concordia University. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Child Development. I am a person-centered therapist with 12 years of experience working with children and young adults. I have also worked with adult clients for 7 years. My therapeutic style is warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental, and it is my hope that my space will serve as a safe place for you to explore and express your authentic self as we work together.
In my experience, I have learned there is no “one size fits all” counseling method. I have training in Person-Centered Therapy, CBT, DBT, trauma-informed therapy and play therapy. However, each client is unique, and it’s my job to find out what kind of counseling works best for you. Therapy is a collaborative effort and we both have to do the work required to achieve our goals, because we are in this together.
