OUR GUEST SPEAKERS
Callie M Sewell, Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC
Counseling is best when it's personalized. There is no such things as a "one-size-fits-all" method to therapy. I have found that many of us have a combination of trauma and maladaptive behaviors that once explored and processed can dramatically improve the quality of life. I implement four cornerstone treatment approaches: EMDR, Mindful Movement, DBT(Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and expressive arts to calm the nervous system, resolve trauma and incorporate new behaviors.
I serve dynamic populations. I have worked in behavioral health hospitals, residential treatment centers and in managed care settings. In each of these experiences I have had the great opportunity to assist emotionally dysregulated individuals and facilitate the restoration of resilience and balance.
Sara Black, Licensed Professional Counselor, MS, LPC-S, LCDC, CCTP
Trauma has an emotional, psychological and physical impact. I see clients who are experiencing PTSD, Psychogenic Non-Epileptic Seizures (PNES), chronic pain, illness, addiction and despair. All of these issues can be addressed; when I see my clients heal from trauma, I see them flourish in all areas of their lives! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Board Approved Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider, Certified Dynamic Mindfulness Teacher, and EMDRIA-trained EMDR Therapist.
I utilize a variety of methods including nutritional and integrative health recommendations, trauma-focused mindful movement, expressive therapy, EMDR, positive psychology, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. By combining these different styles of therapy I am able to provide a unique approach specifically tailored to your individual needs.
At the core, I am a client-centered therapist, which means I believe that for you to grow, you need an environment that provides you with genuineness, acceptance, and empathy. My promise to you: I will always strive to provide an environment that incorporates these three key elements.
