Savannah Noel, Master's in Counseling
Savannah Noel is a master’s level clinician who graduated with degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Forensic and Legal Psychology from Marymount University in Virginia. Before graduate school, Savannah studied psychology at Clemson University with minors in sociology and criminal justice while working as a research assistant studying the impact of movement on children’s ability to focus on the classroom. Savannah also worked as an RBT with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. During graduate school, Savannah worked with adolescents and adults with substance use, trauma and mood disorders. This experience led Savannah to find passion in growing as a trauma-informed clinician as she saw first-hand ways trauma and substance use can impact individuals and families.
Savannah has experience working with a multitude of individuals ranging from as young as 4 up to 60 in both group and individual settings. She believes that each person has their own subjective experience that is important to discuss and consider within the counseling space. As a result of this, Savannah uses various therapeutic approaches such as motivational interviewing (MI), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to help each client achieve their individual goals. Savannah takes a person-centered, existential and strength-based approach to counseling, believing that each person has their own perception of the world and that each client has the ability to build a meaningful and purpose-filled life. In working together, Savannah is focused on providing clients a safe space to explore themselves as well as the world around them and provide them resources to navigate life to find purpose.
Outside of work, Savannah enjoys reading, taking her dog Finn for walks as well as to the dog park and watching Gilmore Girls. She also loves trying new cooking and baking recipes whenever she can.
