Andrea R. Engels, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Today is a new day, full of promise and hope. Each new experience opens the door to possibilities, empowerment, and well-being. All great journeys begin with a single step. By taking this first step you have chosen to embark on your own journey of self-reflection, self-discovery, and empowerment. Whether you are experiencing difficulties in your relationship, struggling to cope with a loss, hoping to manage symptoms of anxiety or depression more effectively or just needing guidance managing what life throws at you I can help. As your therapist I am here to guide and support you as you walk through challenging situations and move down the path of achieving greater well-being, awareness, and happiness. Together we will highlight your strengths and examine thoughts and feelings that contribute to your personal struggles, symptoms, and challenges. I look forward to embarking on your journey with you as you move forward to achieve your goals and overcome your challenges.

Paul Voorhies, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

Paul has 27 years of clinical experience working in a variety of settings in the New Orleans area and was in private practice for 20 of those. He graduated summa cum laude from Loyola University in New Orleans with a B.A. in Psychology and obtained his Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Tulane University.

Paul is an adult specialist and believes in utilizing a variety of theoretical orientations in psychotherapy, including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, and Humanistic. In addition, he enjoys working with couples on relationship issues. Key to his therapy is the belief that he is there to help to empower clients to set and achieve goals by acting as a guide who gives feedback, provides insight, and fosters a safe space for emotional support and personal growth.

Paul strongly believes that each client is unique and that therapy needs to be custom tailored to the client and his or her specific objectives.and life situations. Getting in touch with one’s temperament and defenses constitutes one of the most important ways by which people learn to be more comfortable with themselves and others and live more authentic and satisfying lives.
