In Jennifer’s Words
As a therapist, I have found that coming to therapy and discussing difficulties in your life is hard, to say the least. There may be uncomfortable events that need to be visited, traumatic situations that induce fear just entertaining the idea of repeating them out loud, or concerns of re-experiencing the trauma.
I employ different techniques to allow this process to be manageable as well as productive. I believe each person and each situation is different and requires different avenues to process through life’s challenges without being re-traumatized. However, if you don’t allow yourself to feel, you don’t allow yourself to heal.

In Ashley’s Words
I personally am an advocate for self-care and overall wellness related to the mind, body and soul. I believe that when a person is able to properly align these three aspects of themselves they are able to experience a feeling of peace. I believe that therapy can assist in aligning the mind, the body and the soul as long as a person is willing to do so. I use techniques related to thoughts, actions and feelings in order to help facilitate this healing process.
