Advanced Awareness Counseling
- Tennessa's Therapy
As an experiential therapist, I focus on awareness of the whole self, authenticity, and balance in life. While the past is critical to understanding the present, I encourage a here-and-now approach to healing the past.
When I look at an individual, it is easy to observe the many components that complete that person. Your uniqueness and value is enhanced, affirmed and validated as you come to accept the person you are. I like to compare it to a puzzle. All pieces are different, and necessary to complete the whole. When a piece is missing, the puzzle is incomplete.
Through awareness, assimilation, and balance, I encourage you to reunite the parts of yourself that you have cut off or shut down, so the completed picture is whole, and unbroken. I believe firmly the whole person must be addressed, and that only then is true authenticity and full self-actualization possible.
As a gay woman, I am culturally sensitive, affirmative, and open to the uniqueness of the individuals I work with, be they of the LGBTQ+ population or otherwise. Having grown up in the LDS faith, I have personally navigated the LDS/LGBTQ+ dynamic and feel confident in my abilities to help you do the same in a way that works for you.
I have 5+ years of experience working with children and teens who struggle with the autism spectrum disorder addressing social and other behavioral issues. I am experienced with play therapy and applied behavioral analysis techniques.
