Colette Henricks, LPC
Senior Counselor
Fully Licensed
Specialized in Parts Work, Somatic Experiencing

Do you shrink away from what matters most to you, deep down? Do you wish you could stop caring about what other people think and just feel comfortable in your own skin, regardless of the situation? Many of us have an inner critic that tells us that something ’ is wrong with us whenever we feel confused, afraid, angry, sad, or shameful – turning our feelings into judgments, into a sense of personal failure, and into proof that we are somehow less worthy than others. Thankfully, there is a way out. 

As the psychologist Carl Rogers put it, “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I can change.” By learning to safely befriend our body and mind with compassion and curiosity, we can begin to understand and deeply appreciate the positive intentions that the many parts of ourselves have for us—even those parts that seem to just want to attack us. When what needs to be expressed and acknowledged within us is truly heard, this creates a shift. We begin to trust ourselves, to reclaim our inherent vitality, and to live in greater alignment with our most cherished values.   

Guided by Somatic Experiencing and Inner Relationship Focusing (IRF), I help people cultivate the inner awareness needed to develop a more trusting relationship with themselves. By bringing attention to thoughts, feelings, impulses, and sensations, we work to safely release past traumas and current feelings of stuckness, as we listen under the surface to what the body knows—always working from a place of compassion and non-judgment. The relationship you have with yourself is the most important one you have. Let’s build that together.
