Mandi Farley, MS, LPC
I worked with childhood trauma, abuse, and neglect as a child and family social services caseworker for about 15 years before I became a licensed professional counselor. This work informed how I view persistent emotional and behavioral difficulties and inspired me to continue on my path to help others heal in a more directed and meaningful way. Now, as a therapist in private practice, I have the honor and privilege of doing just that and I am truly grateful for being able to witness such courage and bravery every day.
I believe in the quiet, subtle power that uncovering and giving voice to your truth can infuse into your life. By speaking your truth you are then able to accept yourself fully and lovingly and only then can you heal. I see my part in this process as providing a secure, safe space in which my clients can explore their experiences, thoughts, feelings, wounds, and emotions without pressure or judgment and providing guidance and direction when things become unclear or unfocused. Together my clients and I gain insight into their situations and we develop coping skills that are comfortable and effective. And little by little we gain firm footing in the new lives they have created.
The theoretical models I employ can be categorized as interpersonal, experiential, humanistic, existential, trauma-focused/trauma-informed, and attachment-based. They are as follows:
- Person-Centered Therapy
- Inner Child Therapy
- Ego State Therapy-(Parts Therapy)
- childhood abuse/neglect
- rape/sexual assault
- dissociative disorders
- GLBTQQIA issues
- gender dysphoria
- Bipolar Disorder
- suicidal ideation
- codependency/relationship issues
- family of origin issues
In addition, I like to offer options for a fully comprehensive healing opportunity. I am a Shamanic Reiki Master-Level Practitioner and am open to including spirituality, energy work, meditation, and hypnotherapy as requested.
A note about healing...
Making the decision to change can feel scary. It can feel intimidating and overwhelming. This is completely normal. Don't let that stop you. Acknowledge your fear and move forward anyway. Risk, Grow, Thrive! You deserve to live better, love bigger, and explore life with a free and open heart, mind, and spirit.
