ANDREA LOPES, MSW, LIFE AND BUSINESS COACH, REIKI MASTER
After over 20 years as a psychotherapist, I have built upon that experience to become a life coach, providing people with the tools and personal support needed to make significant positive changes in their lives. My strong empathetic nature helps build rapport and trust by tuning into and appreciating feelings, hopes and fears. I offer clients an ability to see beyond the self-limiting beliefs that hold them back, and bring creativity to helping them find their strengths and turn their goals into reality.
I utilize my training in life coaching and mind/body techniques in my coaching work to help facilitate positive change in all areas of life, including managing major life transitions, changing careers, creating a healthy, well-balanced life, and more.
I take an integrative approach with my clients. Throughout my professional career my strong belief in the interconnection between our mind and body compelled me to learn more about holistic approaches to mental, physical, and emotional wellness. This is what inspired me to open Flourish Counseling and Wellness Center in Olney, MD in November, 2017.
