Corey S. Springer, MMFT
Corey aspires to help college students, adult individuals, and couples discover the ability to redefine their life stories and reconsider the roles they’ve written for themselves as they step into new chapters of life. He hopes to facilitate personal growth and healing for his clients in a safe place where they can feel seen, heard, and accepted without judgment.
His therapeutic interests include self-awareness and personality development, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, shame and insecurity, grief and loss, career and life issues, self-compassion, faith and sexuality, and spirituality. Corey believes life is a purposeful journey and that people can live in the richness of their fullest potential when they actively work to understand their unique stories and author their own lives.
Corey’s therapeutic training is eclectic, drawing inspiration from reputable models such as narrative therapy, attachment therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), the Gottman Method, and various models within systems theory. His approach is integrative, which means that he chooses which therapy model and interventions he thinks would best fit each individual client based on his experience with them in the room. Corey also utilizes concepts from the Enneagram and Core Emotions.
During his time away from the office, he enjoys spending quality time with his family and friends, writing music, listening to podcasts and audio books, and spending time outdoors. Corey and his wife are local foodies, and they love to travel. They are both passionate about relationship psychology and personality. Corey has been diligently studying the Enneagram for several years and utilizes it for self-development and making more meaningful connections with others.
