Coryanna Ku received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Counseling, both from Eastern Michigan University. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Certified Counselor through the National Board of Certified Counselors. She is also a registered Wedding Officiant and has officiated countless weddings since 2012.
Coryanna has an open approach to therapy, offering a judgment-free zone in order to meet clients wherever they are on their life’s journey. Coryanna works from a Wellness Model, as opposed to a Medical Model. The Medical Model is tied to pathology and focuses on the things that are wrong with clients. The drawback of the medical model is that it is heavily based on pathology and tends to ignore the clients’ strengths, which may be vital to helping clients overcome or manage their mental illnesses. The Wellness Model focuses on the integration of the whole person and considers the individual’s strengths and weaknesses and sees ‘wellness’ as an individual goal to be created and pursued. Each person’s ‘wellness’ is based on where that person is and that person’s ideal state of wellness. In essence, the wellness approach recognizes that a human being is a sum total of various parts. These various parts – job fulfillment, self-worth, emotional stability, coping skills, spirituality, and balanced relationships, etc. – are considered and utilized when treating the presenting issue.
Over the past 11 years, Coryanna has done extensive work with a diverse clientele through non-profit organizations and agencies in California and Michigan. She has been certified in many Evidence-Based Practices and endeavors to keep abreast of new research in the mental health field through continuing education efforts. Her particular interests include the following:
• LGBTQ+ needs and issues
• Adolescent, family, and couples counseling
• Communication Skills
• Parenting skills
• Posttraumatic Stress, anxiety, and phobias
• Anger management
• Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Her most recent endeavor includes counseling children, adolescents, and young adults who have been diagnosed with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Spinal Cord Injury (SPI). She is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist through the Brain Injury Association of America. Along with counseling the pediatric and young adults, Coryanna assists parents, families, and caregivers with understanding TBIs and SPIs through education of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral deficits and limitations due to the injury.
