Bekah Stines, MSPC, LPC
Founder, Clinical Supervisor & Licensed Professional Counselor
I have a background in addiction recovery, community mental health, school based therapy services, group, and individual therapy practice. My specialized training in the treatment of complex trauma has enhanced my work as a volunteer director and trainer for a local non-profit, Mending the Soul. Additionally, I work closely with local community agencies who provide services for victims of commercial sex trafficking and women coming out of "the game". I also enjoy supporting local first responders who suffer from work-related trauma.
I am trained in the S.A.F.E approach to EMDR (Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR) which provides a unique body centered-approach to trauma treatment. I work to integrate trauma using an eclectic mix of body centered therapies, talk therapy, intergenerational family systems and Internal Family systems to look at the history and experiences of the individual while incorporating the unique strengths of each client. I use an interpersonal approach to treatment which creates a gentle and safe therapeutic relationship with my clients while providing direct interventions for lasting healing.
I also provides clinical and site supervision to students and associate level counselors.
LPC Student Intern
I truly believe in trusting the timing and process of your own healing, and I'm ready to dive in with you right where you are at. We are relational beings and need each other to build safe, healing spaces. Together, we'll begin to break down cycles that are no longer working for your relationship with your self, friends and family, and the communities you engage in.
I am passionate about working with young adults, women, and adolescents/teens, especially regarding abuse- and trauma- related healing. I believe a large part of our healing comes while improving our relationships with our selves. This can involve learning to communicate boundaries, establishing self-care practices, improving your body relationship, managing anxiety through the constant adjustments life requires, acknowledging and healing inner wounds and trauma, talking through sexuality, analyzing the involvement of spirituality in your healing, and many more. Wherever you are in your healing, we can collaborate to improve circumstances in your life that may be causing stress or anxiety. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story thus far.
