Connect with Hunter Helsel: Brainspotting Therapist
Whether this is your first time seeking out therapy or you have been in therapy before but are looking for a different approach, you are welcome here. My clients are mainly Gen Z and Millenial women who are highly self-aware and emotionally intelligent, but what they "know" and what they feel don't match. This feels frustrating because society tells us that we should be able to change how we feel by changing our thinking. You've tried that and wish it were that easy. My goal is to help you shift away from surviving, and closer to thriving.
My approach is mainly experiential and relational. My focus in session is to make sure you feel seen, heard, and understood as I believe our relationship is the most important factor in your healing & personal growth. I help my clients improve their relationship with their inner world through emotions and sensations, to better understand their thoughts.
My goal as your therapist is to help you understand how your current experience makes sense and from there build a more curious and compassionate self-view to better manage the anxiety and self-criticism you experience. What would thriving look like for you? Let's talk about that vision and create a path to get there.
