Holly Palmer is a Licensed Professional Counselor and received a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy and Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS). Holly has worked with hundreds of clients in various settings to promote real change and healing by striving to provide a safe environment where they feel seen, valued and heard. She believes in catering to the needs of each individual, couple, or family that comes through the door. Holly finds it a personal privilege to walk through the messiness on this side of Heaven with her clients and to see the Lord work healing in their lives.
Holly has a particular interest and heart for families. As a child of divorce herself, she knows the struggles of that brokenness firsthand. She utilizes her specialized marriage training from John and Julie Gottman (Level 1 Certified) to help couples decrease reactivity, understand their relationship patterns, and move toward attunement. The marriage is the foundation for the emotional thermostat at home, and she works to improve functioning within the family unit. She also uses play therapy to help children explore their thoughts and emotions to better express themselves at school and in relationships. Holly has also spent time receiving training in the evidence-based practice of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), a method that efficaciously demonstrates the resolution of a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties in single, multiple, and complex trauma experiences for children and adolescents. Holly’s focus is for each person to reach their goals and live a life with purpose and meaning.
