Paula Peterson


About Me

Hello! My name is Paula Peterson. I am licensed professional counselor in Wisconsin since 2007. I am grateful that you are reading my profile and if you connect to what I am sharing, please contact me. Great job taking the step to move towards more health and healing!! It can be very scary and hard to take this step!

I want to share more about who I am and why I do what I do. I chose the counseling field because of my own journey of healing that continues to unfold. I know that our mental health is just as important as taking care of the other aspects of ourselves. I have a degree in Mental Health Counseling from University of Wisconsin-Stout. I have practiced in a day treatment and outpatient setting. I have worked successfully with adults and adolescents. I bring to my practice the belief that we as humans have in us, an innate ability to work through life's struggles. I seek to tap into that ability within our counseling relationship. I have experience working with trauma, Christian counseling, anxiety, self worth and self esteem, life transitions, grief and loss, and anger management. I also enjoy working with addictions, depression and spiritual struggles. Because of my own faith and desire to live out 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, I seek to provide Christian Counseling to those who are struggling.

Lastly, I want to encourage you to continue to take the step of asking for and stepping into help. It is worth it to seek out what you need in order to move forward well. If what I have shared, fits what you long for, please reach out to me. If not, I pray that you find the best fit for you. God Bless you!
