The poet Rumi said, “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” Emotional wounding is a very real part of human experience. It can happen as a result of trauma , loss, rejection, a serious health diagnosis or unwanted change. Like a physical wound, if left untreated it can become infected and lead to symptoms like anxiety and depression. My name is Mindy Tomlinson and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I work with individuals to heal their wounds and enter the light where insight, clarity and acceptance lead to a renewed sense of normalcy and peace in their lives.

My therapeutic focus is trauma , core belief issues, self-esteem, and confidence issues.
Greetings, I am Richard. Do you struggle with viewing yourself in a positive light? Has something in your life affected your sense of worth or is keeping you from living the life that was meant for you? In my over ten years of being a therapist, I have worked with many people to help them move past negative core beliefs about themselves, resolve past traumas that continue to affect them in harmful ways, and overall, learn to change the narrative of their story from hurtful and non-supportive to achieving healthy self-worth and love and acceptance of themselves.

These include cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma -informed care, and mindfulness practices.
We all have times in our lives when things get hard to sort out, they are painful to bear, or frightening to face and we may want to make things better, but just seem stuck. It can be helpful then to turn to someone outside our circle of family and friends with knowledge and skills to give us the support we need. I feel privileged to be in that sort of position as a therapist, when clients allow me into their lives by sharing personal experiences and emotions. I enjoy helping them discover ways to overcome whatever difficulties they are having.

Specific issues I address include anxiety, stress management, trauma , managing chronic pain, relationship issues, major life changes, and issues related to aging.
I enjoy working with people who want to create positive and lasting changes in their lives. Sometimes this is accomplished by simply talking through a confusing and stressful experience with a caring person in a safe place. Sometimes positive change is made by learning and using a new skill. There are times when you might want and/or need a deeper journey to get to know yourself better, your natural strengths and limitations, the source of your suffering, your desires and values, and perhaps your direction in life. I am comfortable working with people in any of these ways.

Often it is very difficult to talk about a life changing trauma ------the pain is incredible for the client---------Art Therapy and Sandplay offer alternative additions to talk therapy- a client can paint an expression of pain- fear--------etc; and then we can talk about how the expression feels-.
My ideal client is one who is seeking help with the desire to heal. My mission is walking with them through their traumas, fears and pain - to help them find their path to inner peace and wellness. I utilize the therapy approach that is safe and comfortable for the client- whether it is Cognitive, Art Therapy or Sand Play Therapy. I address each client as an individual with their special needs. Many of my clients have faced the ramifications of divorce, domestic violence, sexual abuse and other change of life events.

I have experience working with many different kinds of people and issues, though most of my work has been with adults overcoming sadness, worry, expectation, self-doubt, stress, loss, trauma , and more.
The process of becoming who you want to be is a daunting task. The realities of life and the complexities of our modern world can be overwhelming, and seeking help can bring its own form of stress. But here you are, pushing forward! My counseling practice is grounded in the idea that you are not the problem, the problem is the problem. You and I will work together to examine your relationship with the problem and break down what sustains it. We’ll find those moments in which you transcend, and we’ll consider what this might mean for you as you write the next chapters of your life.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
