Congratulations to our current intern Moira O'Brien! Moira is a graduate-level social work intern, nearing completion of a Master in Social Work degree from the University of Denver. Moira received a BA from the University of Texas at Austin and worked professionally in healthcare technology before pivoting her focus to social work and clinical therapy.
While in graduate school, Moira interned with the United Way of Dane County providing referrals to community resources and treatment centers, and providing emotional and mental health support by telephone. Moira believes strongly in the value and worth of each person, and has been trained to consider the impact of the environment, relationships, and structural systems on an individual. She seeks to help clients leverage their individual strengths to achieve their goals using clinical techniques of motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, and person-centered theory. Moira primarily works with adolescents, teens, and adults.
OceanHawk is grateful and very excited that Moira has accepted a permanent position after graduation in May of 2023!!
Olive ...... and Sparrow!

Reaching out for help is not easy. At OceanHawk Counseling Alternatives you are at home in an environment that is safe and comfortable to begin working through your struggles. Often, many people refrain from looking for help because they feel embarrassed to show what they deem as weaknesses or defects, letting fear of rejection stop them to take the first step.
Professional counseling is like an intimate talk, assisted by a caring friend that sympathizes and knows how you feel, but at the same time can maintain the professional objectivity to allow real change. OceanHawk Counseling Alternatives brings you a powerful ally in finding a new path and direction in life.
People looking for counseling are often struggling with troubles that have cropped up in their life. Troubles can be caused by painful relationships, work environments, family problems, health issues, loss of loved ones or simply feeling stuck in an unsatisfactory life. We see people who struggle with difficult life transitions, such as relationship difficulties or divorce, loss, job loss or change of occupation. The emotional symptoms are stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and non-useful anger. We also help those who are struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction as well as the loved ones who are affected.
Our first meeting is focused on carefully understanding the problems that you want to address, and then concentrate on your strengths, abilities, and finding meaning in life. The keystone of our practice is respectful attention to your individual differences, personal culture, and belief system. The result is a safe environment to experiment with applying your strengths to problems in new ways. We believe in results-focused therapy based on a client-centered philosophy, and can help you discover your inner resources to tackle any problem.
People of all races, cultures and orientations are welcome at OceanHawk Counseling.
Be assured... there IS a reason you have found us today. Perhaps you are ready to take that first step to discover a new way of looking at your world. We hope you will take the opportunity to achieve an enhanced life.
