Holly Smigel, LMHC
Owner/Full Time Counselor
I have my Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling which I received in 2002 from the University of Iowa. I specialized in psychiatric rehabilitation and therefore completed several internships in that area. I have worked in a variety of mental health settings over a period of 20 years including residential treatment for children and adults, supported living services for adults with mental illness, chemical dependency treatment, emergency/crisis counseling, biblical counseling in church settings, hospital programs for adults with chronic mental illness and vocational/career counseling. My areas of specialty include depression and anxiety. I am constantly striving to further my education by attending conferences and workshops as well as reading books to increase my knowledge and skills. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Iowa and therefore adhere to the ethics and standards of the state counseling board. I have committed myself to this counseling ministry. I truly care about each client that I serve and look forward to walking with you on your journey.
