Whispering FirefliesCounseling Services

Welcome

Hello, and welcome to Whispering Fireflies Counseling Services.

My name is Annette Pelletier. I am a licensed clinical social worker in Southern Utah and have several years' experience working with individuals, families, and groups. I consider myself to be an electic and versatile practitioner who is willing to bring my client's personal interests into therapy.

With the assistance and hard work of my clients, I am able to walk individuals through the healing process of depression, anxiety, family relational issues, attachment disorders, substance use disorders, emerging personality disorders and other challenges individuals are often faced with. My passion and specialization is helping those who have experienced complex trauma.

I recognize everyone has strengths to build upon in order to work toward growth and healing. I enjoy helping individuals to see those strengths and build on those strengths to then help them see their personal worth; helping them to recognize they are enough, always have been enough, and always will be enough. It is important to me to help others learn how to navigate expressing their thoughts and feelings more openly so they are able to use their voices and show up in their lives more authentically.


Annette L. Pelletier, LCSW, CTRTC, CCAT

Clinical Therapist

I approach my work through a combination of trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), reality therapy, motivational interviewing, equine-assisted psychotherapy, and experiential/adventure-based interventions. I am certified in choice theory and reality therapy through the William Glasser Institute. I also received EMDR training through the EMDR Institute, where I received my certification of completion for EMDR part 1 and part 2. Additionally, I am trained and certified in trauma-focused equine assisted psychotherapy and have specialized training in the use of equine-connected EMDR through The Natural Lifemanship Institute. I am also a certified adventure therapist through the Association for Experiential Education.
