• Feeling lost is the sensation that comes just before self-discovery.

    “Shame dies when stories are told in safe safe places” -Ann Voskamp 

    There are parts of you that you prefer not to talk about, maybe parts of you that you’re ashamed to face. You’ve learned that you can’t be the real you. Maybe you don’t even know who the real you is anymore, or perhaps you never did. You’ve come to the right place. For now, take a deep breath, unclench your jaw, relax your shoulders, welcome. I’m glad you’re here.

    I know you’re doing your best. I know you’ve survived every one of the days behind you. I want more for you though, and I know you want more for yourself, or you wouldn’t be reading this. You don’t want to just survive anymore. Now is your time to thrive. 

    Here at Valley-High Counseling I believe that healing is not linear, that there are highs and lows throughout every journey, and that the lows are where the magic happens. I believe that relationship is the most important part of the therapeutic process, and that in order for therapy to be effective, both you and I need to be our authentic, real selves.

    When treating clients, I use a variety of techniques and philosophies stemming from heavily researched trauma therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I know firsthand that working through and healing from trauma can be scary and painful, so I will always encourage you to go at your own pace. The important thing to remember though, no matter how fast or how slow you think you’re going, you won’t be walking alone here at Valley-High Counseling.
