HALEY PIERSON, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

As a Mental Health Therapist, Haley Pierson (she, her, & hers), is interested in working with clients to address issues related to multiculturalism, safety concerns, depression, interpersonal relationships, identity development, phase of life concerns, substance use issues, and self-worth. Pierson provides individual therapy and outreach services, with the aspiration of creating a groups program at Monarch Health. Haley is delighted at the opportunity to engage in a therapeutic relationship with patients/clients seeking to address co-occurring diagnoses, such as substance use and mental health issues. Haley utilizes a holistic approach to therapy and integrates solution-focused, cognitive behavioral, and person-centered theories into her work. She believes in the healing qualities of human connection and believes that the power of change throughout therapy comes from the therapeutic relationship, where an individual can feel seen, heard, and recognized throughout their journey to recovery.  “The road to recovery is a difficult journey which requires a lot of supports in place, such as a therapeutic relationship, to be able explore one’s strengths as well as their resilience to overcome some of life’s struggles.” Pierson says. “I am humbly grateful to every client who allows me the opportunity to share in this time and space, working alongside them, as they forge their paths to one of recovery.” In Haley’s free time she enjoys exploring Madison, meeting new people, and traveling to visit family and friends.
