My greatest reward as a therapist is helping my clients explore ways to make the changes in their lives that will allow them to look forward to the future with hope. I believe that we all need someone to talk with who will really listen and accept us as we are, without judgment. I provide my clients with that warm, nonjudgmental environment-a safe place to explore the issues that may be preventing you from living the life you want. Using clinically tested and evidenced-based interventions, I have worked with over 200 individuals since 2011 in my private practice.
I am an EMDR certified therapist and have worked extensively with clients to process their trauma in the form of abuse, neglect, sexual assault, family dysfunction and/or abandonment. I am a certified clinical trauma professional as well as a member of the National Center for Crisis Management and the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress.

Lynn Esol Varela's Groups

Trauma and shame

Shame is one of the most destructive emotions and so many who have survived trauma struggle with this feeling without knowing that is what they are experiencing. Many of the interventions, and psychoeducation provided from "It wasn't your Fault" by Beverly Engel are integrated into this group to help you discover patterns of behaviors established as a result from trauma, develop healthy coping skills to deal with shame/trauma and how, through self compassion/understanding, you can overcome shame.
