Making space to untangle these experiences and working on increasing the capacity for self-compassionate awareness of what’s no longer serving you will often be part of the work.
Rhea applies an integrative approach to therapy, drawing from person-centered, existential, psychodynamic, somatic, and gestalt therapeutic frameworks. Depth and meaning-making are often a primary focus in Rhea’s approach with clients, but she also strives to tailor therapy to the needs of each individual client.
Rhea is a student therapist intern enrolled at Lewis & Clark College. She’s working toward her MA in Professional Mental Health Counseling. She works at Emerge Natural Health Care under the supervision of Dr Peter H Addy, Phd, Licensed Mental Health Counselor.
