Rhiannon Gillespie, Resident in Counseling

Philosophy of Care

Are you looking for a deeper purpose in your life?

Is there a longing to work through and free yourself and your body from the emotions that are built up inside of you? 

We all have places in our life where we feel stuck. Working together, we will identify those blocks and find ways for you to overcome them. My goal is to create a safe, supportive environment where you are able to show up fully as you, offering an opportunity for self discovery and empowerment. I strongly believe that we all deserve to feel fully alive, to show up as our unique and authentic selves and be loved for that.

Using a compassionate, holistic, and strength based approach, I believe in weaving mindfulness, spiritual practices, and client-centered therapy in order to support clients in their discovery of connecting their subconscious and conscious patterns in order to deeply heal and find liberation from within. I will support you through your journey of identifying your true self: your strengths, gifts, goals, dreams, and anything else you discover along the way. 

I have a safe, warm, and nurturing style  in counseling sessions. I strive to help clients move through what no longer serves them and develop a greater sense of clarity and grounding in their day to day lives.

I specialize in trauma-informed care, treating anxiety and depression, as well as supporting life transitions. My purpose is to hold space for clients to connect with themselves, reflect back their gifts, and work through anything that may arise.  I have a unique way of blending Intuitive and clinical feedback while supporting individuals to connect to their own inner wisdom and discover their own truth. 

Growth is a process. I enjoy walking with my clients through the stages of change as experience has taught me that there’s always something amazing and powerful waiting for them on the other side.
