La Shanda Sugg, LPC
Owner, Therapist, Consultant
As a relational, sexual, and racial trauma survivor, I truly value the work and process of healing and growth. I would never suggest that someone cannot guide a person where he or she has not been, but it definitely helps to know the terrain. The combination of my own personal journey, working in the mental health field for over a decade, and specialized training and certifications have equipped me with valuable tools and insights that I am eager to share with others. I truly believe I have been purposed to walk alongside others in their personal and professional journeys to healing and fulfillment. I would be honored to be that support for you as well.
Why work with me?
I help people feel seen, heard, and understood. Professionally, I am a Certified Trauma-Responsive Therapist, certified in Developmental and Relational Trauma Therapy, and trained in EMDR. Personally, I am a trauma survivor who is dedicated to doing her own healing work. Together, I am a compassionate human with an unparalleled ability to create safety for others. My realness and transparency are two of the characteristics most appreciated by my clients and training participants.
There is nothing wrong with coping but it doesn't have to be our final destination. I help people Move from Coping to Healing by educating them about how their brains and bodies work, helping them connect to their internal experiences, and creating a safe space to practice new skills. Most of our hurt happens in relationship and so does healing.
