Owner of Shades of Resilience Counseling
Supervised by Julianne Reck, LPC-S
Are you a Person of Color, over the age of 30 and your life feels like a constant struggle? I understand you may feel helpless and alone and I know asking for help can be scary but you don’t have to struggle alone, relief is available.
Clients who have worked with me were able to take back control of their life, work with their emotions, improve communication skills, and have more positive relationships using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy treatment methods.
I specialize in working with BIPOC adults to process childhood trauma, generational trauma, racial trauma, or other traumatic experiences/events that are negatively impacting their relationships with themself or with others.
If you’re feeling stuck but ready to get unstuck, give me a call today so we can discuss how our work together can help you find relief from the pain of your past so you can have a happier more fulfilling life.
