Ratna Gunnala, LAC, EMDR Therapist, EFT Externship
Completed, EMDR Therapy Certification in Process
I was drawn to the mental health field because I’ve always been curious about people and how their story is a part of who they are. My interest in getting to know people and connect with them allows me to develop a solid relationship which I believe to be a foundational aspect of the therapeutic process.
My hope is to get to know you and really hear your story in order to support you in processing your experiences. I believe that when we’re able to identify and make sense of where our emotions and/or behaviors are coming from, we can increase awareness and eventually respond to life’s challenges in a different way.
Since we all have had different journeys in life, there is no one solution that is suitable for every person. I want to support you in developing skills and identifying solutions that work for you in your life and are consistent with your culture, values, and beliefs. I find in doing so, the skills and solutions we develop together will remain sustainable for you.
One thing is for sure, while it’s not always the easiest thing to do, every person is capable of resiliency, growth, and positive change. I would be honored to support you in your journey towards living your best life!
