Therapy Services

Embark on a journey of healing and self-discovery with individual and group counseling services at Healing Pathways.

Individual Counseling for Adults

Whether you're navigating past traumas, managing current challenges, or working towards personal growth, our dedicated team is here to walk alongside you on your journey towards connection, safety, and empowerment.

At Healing Pathways, we specialize in guiding individuals through the profound healing process from both Big T Traumas and Small T Traumas. Big T traumas refer to significant, often life-threatening events such as natural disasters, physical or sexual assault, or severe accidents that profoundly impact an individual's sense of safety and well-being. Small T traumas refer to less overtly catastrophic events, such as emotional neglect, ongoing verbal abuse, or subtle forms of invalidation, which can still have a significant and lasting impact on an individual's psychological well-being.

Utilizing evidence-based and culturally cognizant therapeutic approaches, we are committed to empowering you on your journey to healing, thriving, and resilience. With a deep understanding of the complexities of these issues, our expertise ensures personalized care tailored to your unique needs. 

Domestic Violence

The Healing Pathways team feels a great sense of pride in their role of supporting survivors of Domestic Violence, with each therapist bringing extensive experience from the Domestic Violence Nonprofit sector. Our team is well-versed in the processes and resources available, ensuring you receive comprehensive care and guidance. Our mission is to provide a safe space for healing, empowering you to rebuild your life with confidence and resilience.

Sexual Violence

We understand that the effects of sexual violence can be pervasive and distressing, and we are dedicated to creating an environment where survivors can process their experiences in a healthy and safe way. Our clinicians are honored to walk the healing journey alongside our clients and take the trust placed in them very seriously.


At Healing Pathways, we specialize in providing compassionate support for those living with PTSD and C-PTSD. We understand the challenges and complexities of navigating life after trauma, and we are here to offer guidance and healing every step of the way. Our dedicated therapists create a nurturing environment where you can reclaim your strength and find peace amidst the storm.

Attachment Wounds & Developmental Traumas

Our clinicians feel confident assisting their clients in addressing attachment wounds and developmental traumas with empathy and understanding. We recognize that not all traumas are "big T" traumas, and everyone deserves a safe space to unpack how past experiences have shaped current behaviors, tendencies, and relationships. We are dedicated to guiding you through this healing journey, helping you foster healthier relationships and find greater peace within yourself.


In the context of therapy, a modality refers to a specific method or approach used by therapists to treat clients. It encompasses the theories, techniques, and strategies employed to promote mental well-being.


Different modalities cater to various needs and preferences of clients, allowing for more tailored treatment plans. The approaches we use at Healing Pathways include EMDR, Prolonged Exposure, Trauma Incident Reduction, Art Therapy, and Traditional Talk Therapy. 


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a powerful approach we utilize to help individuals process past traumatic experiences. Our trained therapists guide you through this evidence-based technique, facilitating the reprocessing of distressing memories, leading to resolution and relief. Experience the transformative benefits of EMDR alongside a certified clinician who prioritizes your well-being and recovery.  

Prolonged Exposure

Prolonged Exposure Therapy is one of the few specialized approaches we employ to address past traumas. Through structured sessions, our certified clinician guides you gently through confronting and processing distressing memories, empowering you to overcome avoidance and reclaim control over your life. 

Trauma Incident Reduction

​Trauma Incident Reduction (TIR) Therapy offers a powerful pathway to healing from past traumas. Through a structured and empathetic approach, TIR helps individuals confront and resolve traumatic experiences in a safe and supportive environment. By revisiting and processing these incidents in a controlled setting, clients often experience profound breakthroughs, leading to emotional liberation, cognitive clarity, empowerment, resilience, and restored wellbeing.  

Art Therapy

Incorporating the transformative power of art, our practice offers art therapy as a modality for healing and self-expression. Through the creative process, clients can explore emotions, confront challenges, and discover new insights in a non-verbal and deeply personal way. Guided by our skilled art therapist Sonia Patricia Varela, this unique approach fosters growth, resilience, and a deeper connection to one's inner world.  

Traditional Talk Therapy

Our practice offers traditional Talk Therapy as a foundational modality for exploring and processing thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a supportive environment. Through open dialogue and active listening, our therapists collaborate with clients to navigate challenges, gain clarity, and cultivate positive change. With a focus on empathy and understanding, talk therapy empowers individuals to build resilience and live more authentically. 

Group Counseling for Adults

Group Counseling is an opportunity to connect with others who have been through similar life events like yourself, and challenges the thought of “I’m alone.”

We are not currently running groups, but we encourage you to express interest in topics you would like to explore.
