About a decade ago I attended a conference at the Omega Institute in New York. While there I was reawakened to the immense suffering in the world, and I realized there was no more time to waste. I needed to change careers in order to be of service to my fellow man. All of my life I wanted to be a healer, but did not know what form it would take. After a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I launched Holly Strelow Counseling. It is an honor to be with people during their struggle and growth, and I hope I can be of service to you.
My approach is mindful, practical, respectful and always hopeful. I believe each of holds the key to our own healing within our highest sense of self. My role is to help support that discovery process through thoughtful exploration, creativity, and a little humor. While I hope we are a good fit, if not, I would be happy to help refer you to someone who might be a better fit. I look forward to collaborating with you.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
My own struggles have helped make me a more compassionate person and therapist. Like many, I have faced challenging situations in my personal life, in my extended family, and close relationships. Some of these include:
-Mental health issues including anxiety, depression, agoraphobia, and postpartum.
-Homosexuality including identity issues, coming out, and social justice issues.
-Journey through religion, faith, and spirituality.
-Long-term Marital issues including infidelity, coming out, and sexuality.
-Special needs for children with physical limitations.
-Sandwich Generation including caring for parents and children simultaneously.
-Living with terminal illness.
-Grief and Loss, especially at a young age.
-Painful career transitions including loss of job, career transitions, and return to workplace.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
On the contrary, the ability to ask for help takes incredible courage and strength of character. I am a firm believer of living my life with scaffolding. To me that means asking for help from those who I love and feel safe with. It means approaching life with an open and authentic stance to my being human.
It also means loosening the grip of perfectionism and embracing my perfectly imperfect way of being (After all, that is a heck of a lot more fun). And most importantly, to live with scaffolding is to know that shame and fear breed in the darkness. Bringing just a flicker of light begins to loosen their grip. And one of the safest ways to bring light is with the support of a therapist.
