A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER
M. A., LPC-S, TA-C/S, CCTP
Hi there! My name is Christasia Coleman and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor (LPC-S) and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional-1 (CCTP), who is yoga trained. I am passionate about working with people who are grieving the loss of someone that they loved and/or navigating the challenges of trauma.
My heart is open and receptive to any person who is hurting and disappointed due to grief and/or trauma. In my experience, many people come to therapy feeling added stress and pressure due to various myths and misconceptions they hold about grief and trauma. These may be perceptions passed down through generations or introduced by others once the process has begun.
I help people to unravel these beliefs and replace them with more suitable and acceptable thoughts about their experience, helping them to feel more secure in their process which allows them space to heal and grow. Using techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness/meditation [to name a few], people get the opportunity to explore how their experience is impacting them mentally, emotionally, behaviorally and spiritually.
I am grateful to stand along side these strong individuals as they embark upon what can be an unforgiving journey through life.
It is my hope that they know how magnificent & capable they are of overcoming whatever obstacles may come their way.
