Counseling for Adults
Helping you heal trauma through creative expression and EMDR so you feel empowered in your life.
Welcome! I'm Lucy and I appreciate you being here!
Clients I work with often resonate with these sentiments:
"I have experienced trauma in my life and it has become really hard to trust myself."
"I feel like I should be over things that happened but my body keeps responding as if it is still happening and these things in my past still affect me."
"I am a people-pleaser and put others' needs before my own. I have trouble making decisions, setting boundaries or knowing what I like."

A Space for You
We create a validating space that honors all of you while I guide you in healing from the trauma you have gone through!
The space we build together invites imagination, humor and openness that has been hard to access.
We experiment together and create a comforting tool kit that can help you strengthen your relationship with your intuition.
4 Changes that Happen for Clients in Our Work:
They trust themselves! They notice their initial response and feel comfort in making decisions for themselves while prioritizing their needs.
2) Feeling Connected and Present
They still have the memories and know what happened but without that big jolt to the system every time something related to the past comes up.The feeling of on edge, hypervigilance and tension in the body changes to being more grounded in the present and regulated.
3) The World Gets Bigger
They start to not worry so much about being perfect or taking up as little space as possible. They try new creative things and feel empowerment in the process.
They are aware of their own energy vs. the energy of others and notice what they need to support themselves in keeping boundaries that will help them.
