Corinne Humphries believes that Albus Dumbledore was spot on when he said, “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” The concept is seemingly so simple and yet when people are facing the daily challenges of mental health issues, it can be hard to embrace the possibility of lightness and joy. Each person’s struggles are unique to their life experiences. However, the beauty of therapy is the built-in support system of not having to face the darkness alone.
Trauma is real and it can be heavy to carry alone. Corinne specializes in assisting children, adolescents, and young adults to process and heal from traumatic events. Through humor, empathy and compassion, Corinne will aid in setting achievable goals, developing helpful skills, and empowering patients to seek their fullest potential.
