Moving You Forward
" If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart." - Nelson Mandela
Healing Words Counseling is an individually owned counseling practice that offers clinical trauma-based and holistic therapy to children as young as 5, adolescents, adults, and families. Currently, all sessions are virtual. I specialize in working with BIPOC individuals who desire to process their experienced traumas and heal in a way that brings them to their healthiest and best selves!
When you work with me, you will feel a warm, friendly, and empathetic presence. You'll feel appreciated and accepted for who you are, unconditionally and without judgment. Together with me, you'll process your life's journey, including the "bumps" in the road, as well as the unexpected detours. Together, we will work to help you evolve into the best version of yourself.
I help my clients to overcome a variety of challenges, including trauma, depression and/or grief, anxiety, family discord, and interpersonal and intrapersonal skills and communication. I help people heal from past experiences that have left them hurting or feeling incomplete.
Using empowerment tools and techniques such as journaling, coloring, and drawing, I aid clients to access the inner recesses of their thought processes. Additionally, I also use an eclectic mix of person-centered, humanistic, Gestalt-like modalities, Brainspotting, and some aspects of narrative and play-therapy.
Healing through conversation...
(Children, Adolescents, & Adults)
In individual counseling sessions, clients work one-on-one with me in a safe, caring, non-judgmental, and confidential environment. Individual counseling is counseling focused on the client's immediate or near future concerns. During these one-on-one sessions, you are invited to discuss your feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and things that are troubling you. We will collaborate to shift patterns of thinking, learning new skills, changing behaviors, and/or shifting the way they feel and express emotions.
In family therapy, your family and I will work to solve problems, resolve emotional conflicts, promote communication and foster a healthy environment. Because no family is the same, together, we will curate a treatment plan that is unique for your family. In sessions, I will help the family to develop new tools for managing issues that will change the way you and your family live.
SUPERVISION & COUNSULATATION
Supervision services are a valuable way of "checking in" and receiving relevant training and guidance with a more experienced practitioner. As a counseling supervisor, I will provide support and ensure you as a counselor stay grounded, maintain professional and ethical boundaries, develop and expand your knowledge, both theoretically and practically, as well as focus on self-care to avoid "burnout".
Consultation services are an indirect counseling process that happens when a counselor either observes or acts as an expert to provide advice. As a consultant, I will help you to evaluate specific situations and help guide you to make the best decision.
YOU are the most valuable investment you will ever make!
