Kathleen Coughlin's bio

This content was provided by Kathleen Coughlin "Kathleen is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania. She completed her undergraduate studies at Kutztown University. She then earned her Master's in Social Work from Marywood University. Kathleen initially opened her individual counseling practice in 2002 and her goal was to establish a team of professionals to develop a group counseling practice. Kathleen's specialties include working with clients that are experiencing mood concerns, anxiety, family conflicts, grief and loss as well as adjustment issues as they relate to a client's personal and professional growth. Kathleen has extensive experience working with couples and families to assist them in improving problem solving skills in their relationship. She is approved as a provider by Lehigh and Northampton family courts for co-parent counseling, reunification counseling, and supervised visitation. Her approach centers on the needs of the child/children in helping parents be better able to communicate and function over time. Kathleen also works with families that are in the process of completing a home study for adoption or child custody purposes. She provides support to clients that are experiencing depression and anxiety related to medical conditions which include: Infertility, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Pain, Lupus, Migraines, and Arthritis. Kathleen works with clients to prepare them for bariatric surgery and to support them after as they develop a healthier relationship with food. She has a specialty working with clients to complete Immigration Assessments to support their application for immigrant and non-immigrant visas. The most common types of cases for which these reports are used include: asylum, extreme/exceptional hardship, and domestic abuse. Kathleen offers clinical supervision to other social workers that are working toward obtaining their clinical licensure. Kathleen is available to consult with individuals that are developing their own individual or group practices. These consultations sessions can be done in person, via phone or by Skype. Additionally, her extensive training and experience in emergency services has provided her the opportunity to assist both small and large companies that require onsite debriefing services due to a critical incident that has impacted their employees. The goal of this service is to assist those that are impacted by the event to help them reduce distress and provide resources to assist them in restoring healthy functioning."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Kathleen Coughlin "Welcome to Ocean Vista Counseling,  as you begin your search for a counselor, it is very important to find someone that you are comfortable with talking to and that you feel that you can openly share your emotions with.  As you develop a rapport with the counselor, you will then begin to feel that you can identify what goals you would like to focus on in your counseling sessions.  I view counseling as a collaborative process where the therapist & client work together to help you increase self-understanding, learn more effective ways to cope with difficult feelings & situations, then explore & change life patterns to lead a happier, healthier life.  The hope is that by processing the situations you can develop improved coping skills to manage the challenges. Throughout counseling, I will encourage you to find a balance of positive thought restructuring, creative techniques, and self-care strategies to help you achieve your goals.  "
