  • Strengths-based

Life is not without its challenges and stressors. Getting stuck can blind one to possibilities. Challenges and stressors are necessary elements whereby each of us can grow. Challenges and stressors provide us with energy to use, if we use the energy but are not used by it.

Taleigha Thompson - Supervised by Brittany Andrews, LPC

taleigha

With over ten years of experience in the behavioral health field. Understanding that everyone has trauma and life experiences that make it difficult to move forward is what allows me to have grace and compassion for everyone. I hold the notion that therapy is not for "crazy people" but for anyone who is open and willing to acknowledge their struggles and desires to heal and grow. Therapy is not easy but worth it. As a therapist to the community, it is my job and responsibility to help others find their worth.

I have experience with adolescents, young adults, and middle-aged adults. My approach to therapy is that of a holistic one. I not only treat the mind but the body and spirit as well. The mind, body and spirit are connected in a way in which they all work together to set you on your path to healing. I have extensive experience in both individual, family and group work. I believe both are beneficial for individuals to work on unique struggles for themselves but to also have a community of peers who understand and have lived experience. This helps to create a support system for clients which in turn promotes healing and happiness.
