Naomi Reesor, RP (Q)
I am familiar with encountering difficult emotions that arise from different areas in one's life. For myself, learning to cope with these feelings was not simply about overcoming them, but learning where they originate from and deepening my own self-compassion. Drawing from these, my therapeutic approach is rooted in an intersectional framework that recognizes how all different aspects of an individual shape their direction in life and the challenges they face.
In practice, I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to deepen insight and develop new skills. In doing so, I work from an eclectic therapeutic model, drawing from different modalities to learn what works best for your unique situation. I strive to create a safe and comfortable environment through an anti-oppressive and trauma-informed approach to counseling.
I have completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Masters of Arts in Psychology, and a Masters of Education in Counseling and Psychotherapy. My previous experience includes working with individual adults and couples facing different challenges including anxiety, depression, issues around gender and sexuality, low-self-esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder, sexual assault, and childhood trauma.
If this sounds like it may be a good fit for you, I look forward to connecting and hearing more of your story.
