For over 8 years, I have experience primarily working with adults who have experienced trauma and abuse ranging from past childhood abuse, domestic violence, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse .
Asking for help is hard and takes a lot of strength to do. Asking for help also shows just enough self worth in better one’s self. My clients primarily attend counseling to seek emotional support, guidance in their healing process, and regain their self worth and confidence. They also are working towards self empowerment and growth towards emotional stability. Clients also learn to change the negative beliefs and narratives created from past childhood or relationship abuse and trauma. I have also seen clients who find their faith as a foundation of their healing and I am trained in Immanuel Prayer by request.
