Once of the specialties of CCS is grief and loss counseling for children, Fiorini said. “In fact, ’Counseling Children and Adolescents Through Grief and Loss,’ a book I co-authored with my colleague, Jodi A. Mullen Ph.D., was the American Journal of Nursing’s 2006 Book of the Year.

“We want people to know that CreekSide Counseling is a warm, inviting place. It’s a place where people will feel comfortable and at ease. We believe in the empowerment of clients: All people have the capacity to solve their own problems. Our job is to help them discover their own inner strengths.

“All clients will be treated with dignity and integrity in an atmosphere that provides acceptance and welcome for all cultures, genders, sexual orientations, disability statuses, and social classes.”

Fiorini is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. She is also a professor at SUNY Oswego in Counseling and Psychological services.
