Counselors at A Safe Place to Heal

Our work together will be empowering! Counseling will help you to find more peace in your day-to-day life by giving you the confidence to stand up strong against whatever or whomever is pulling you down! Maybe it is a relationship, or it is the way you talk to yourself? Perhaps it is old tapes  that persistently play in your head and you need to find your voice that tells them to stop! You deserve to be happy and peaceful and fulfilled. My counseling approach focuses on what is working in your life: identifying your strengths and finding solutions. Sometimes, it is also about identifying what’s not working and gaining the courage to let those things go. Often, during the first counseling session, relief is experienced from the effects of the problem that brings you into counseling. Safety in our counseling relationship is imperative! I want you to feel as comfortable as possible while dealing with potentially uncomfortable feelings. I will be real with you and we will figure this out together. I am there to walk with you in this journey. Read more about Jeana

Whatever life struggle is bringing you here today is as unique as you are as an individual. But you are not alone, and together, we can find solutions! Perhaps depression and anxiety has stolen your joy. You may have suffered a great loss, and the cloud of grief simply will not clear.  Like so many of us, you may find that everyday stress is overwhelming you, and you need clear, practical tools to manage it. Out-of-control conflict could be threatening your marriage, or your relationship has become stagnant; you are looking for solid, proven tools to help you rebuild the trust and commitment the two of you once shared. I believe that knowledge and insight is empowering! As a counselor, I strive to provide a supportive, accepting environment to help you gain understanding and self-acceptance; to learn new ways of coping; to improve relationships; to find relief from internal distress; and to discover resolutions to specific problems.

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern
I believe that you can empower yourself more than you ever realized! Sometimes, we come from a home life that didn’t model healthy relationships. Other times, our current home life is what is unhealthy. It can make you uncomfortable to know you are stuck in a rut and you can only do this for so long before something has to give. You know change needs to happen, but you don’t know where to start! Sound familiar? It is my belief that each of us has the innate ability and desire to lead a fulfilling life and have positive, conflict-free, drama-free relationships. Counseling can help you to find your way towards a more peaceful, fulfilling life. We will work on it together and you will find comfort in our partnership. I am not there to judge you; I am there to guide you. My intention is to create a collaborative partnership throughout your counseling sessions that enables you to move away from self-blame and judgment and supports you in finding solutions that are consistent with your values and beliefs. I want to help you feel better and enjoy your life! Read more about Belinda
