EC Lowe, LPCC

A little about me…

Hi there! I’m EC, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor who promises only to make nerdy, in-session references to things like Grogu and Monty Python if that’s something that you’re on board with. I earned my independent licensure (LPCC) in September of 2021, after spending a little over two years working as an LPCA under close supervision of another professional counselor. Before that I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in May of 2019. At WKU I spent a year as a supervised counseling intern in a generalized outpatient setting similar to Meridian, though teletherapy at that time was about as common as flying cars. I have had experience working in a substance use disorders detox and residential center, as well as running IOP and general outpatient groups in addition to my experience with individual sessions

When you come to your appointment with me, you might experience…

Warmth and compassion. It is my goal to mentally and emotionally meet every client wherever they may be. Deciding to come to therapy is a big step and in my sessions, the size of the steps you take after that is totally up to you. I don’t want my clients to feel pressured to talk about anything they’re not yet ready to explore and at the same time I want you to feel empowered to face what you are ready to work on head on. Though I may be the one with the license, I fully believe the only person who is an expert on your life is you. I’m merely here to help you find your way.

My training and specialty work includes…

With my license I am a generalist. A significant amount of my post- graduate work has been with addiction recovery. I have also spent time working with teens and adults on things like anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, and adjustment to major life transitions. I draw quite a bit from the mindful awareness of DBT and also have some supervised experience with the Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD (CPT) model. Additionally, I have taken a couple workshops on incorporating art and music into therapy and hope to get more training on this in the future.

I am most comfortable working with…

Clients ages 13 and older. I have a passion for working with those going through life transitions. Some examples of transitions I’ve worked with include: from addiction to recovery, from high school to college, from college to career, from one career to another, from living alone to moving in with a partner, and more.

In my free time you might find me…

Listening to music, writing fiction and creative nonfiction, planning and/or doodling in my bullet journal, or listening to a podcast. If it’s summer and I’m not working there’s a good chance I’m at the lake. I want to include reading on this list, because it’s something I’ve often enjoyed, but it’s currently a work in progress.
