Emily Brayton, MS LPC-Associate
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is the phenomenal Emily Brayton, MS LPC-Associate. She is currently being supervised by Katie Nix, LPC-S. She has experience and works with children, teens, young adults, couples, and families. She uses approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy in her sessions. She also incorporates Art Therapy and Play Therapy in her sessions with children. Her specialties include stress, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, women-specific issues, parent consultation, and family therapy.

What does Emily like most about therapy?:

"I think the thing I like most about therapy is the freedom for people to be honest and to be themselves. In today's world, it can be so hard to find the time to truly let yourself have a break and check-in. I love being able to create a space for my clients to feel comfortable and not be under any kind of pressure or expectation. Counseling to me is about working with the individual where they're at and making sure they feel completely safe and supported."
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is the marvelous Mindy Bell, MS LPC-Associate. She is currently being supervised by Katie Nix, MA LPC-S. She has experience and works with children, adolescents, young adults, and older adults. She uses expressive arts in her sessions as well as transpersonal/spiritual experiences in therapy. She specializes in stress, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self-harm, grief, life transitions, work/life balance, trauma recovery, building healthy relationships, identity exploration, LGBTQIA+, gender specific issues, and abusive/dysfunctional families.

What does a Mindy like most about therapy?:

“You know the Room of Requirement from the Harry Potter series? It's a kind of secret, protected space that becomes exactly what a person needs it to be, but it opens itself only for the person with a true need for it. I think the counseling room is kind of like that. In it, a caring person meets you exactly where your need is greatest. In a world constantly shouting conflicting messages at us about who we should be and what we should care about, the counseling room provides a safe place to get quiet and pay attention to our feelings, our relationships, and the things that call to us from the inside. In other settings, that level of vulnerability might be met with teasing or even cruelty, but here it can be met with respect, compassion, and deep connection. It's healing. What I love most about therapy is the unique relationship I get to build with the client "in the room where it happens" -- when we together witness the magic of a soul lighting up, together feel the joy of beautiful things coming alive!”.
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is the extraordinary Kylie Henry, MS LPC. She has experience and works with children, adolescents, and young adults. She uses a Client-Centred approach, as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She specializes in stress, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, self-harm, work/life balance, difficult transitions, making friends, and building healthy relationships.

What does Kylie like most about therapy?:

"That’s a tough one to answer, but I think I love the relationship that is built throughout the therapeutic process. I love providing a space where people get to tell THEIR story.. and I love hearing it! In my own life, I have seen how vital and life-changing it is to feel truly heard and seen, as well as having someone to keep me accountable and on the right track to bettering myself. So, that’s what I try to do in the therapy room. I long for all my clients to feel heard, seen, and like someone has their best interest at heart and pushes them to become their best self. I love being a part of the journey and celebrating when there’s things to celebrate, but also consoling when things don’t go how we wanted. I love being whatever role is needed in the moment. I love people, their stories, the therapeutic relationship, and the change that comes from it."
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is the world's best boss, Katie Nix, MA LPC-Supervisor. She founded Bright Space Therapy because she wanted to create a safe place for those experiencing hardships to express them in a warm and comforting environment. She has specialized training in Stress Reduction, Anxiety, Depression, Mindfulness, Play Therapy, and Nutritional Therapy. She uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy and is a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. She has experience and works with children, teens, and young adults. Some other specialties of hers include work/life balance, grief, perinatal/postpartum therapy, and suicidal ideation/self-harm.

What does Katie like most about therapy?

"Therapy is the greatest gift you can give yourself. The therapy room is free of judgment and shame and allows for exploration, empathy, and true understanding. My favorite part of being a therapist is the deeply connected relationships I have with my clients. I feel honored to be a part of their healing journey using compassionate support and therapeutic strategies that result in a more authentic self and fulfilled life. "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change" - Carl Rogers."
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is our phenomenal Cody Sanders, LCSW, CATP, EMDR-Trained. He has experience and works with teens and adults. His therapeutic approach includes Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). He is also a Child and Adolescent Trauma Professional (CATP). His specialties include LGBTQIA+, suicidal ideation, depression, self-harm, trauma, stress, anxiety, grief, bereavement, and difficult life transitions.

What does Cody like the most about therapy?:

"The therapy room is a sacred space. In our fast-paced world, we rarely have the opportunity to slow down and focus on what matters. Therapy gives us the opportunity to explore what we've longed to explore, to feel what we haven't allowed ourselves to feel, and to do what we have always longed to do. Therapy means to exhale. I feel grateful each day that I am able to sit next to someone who chooses growth and witnessing that transformation is my favorite part of therapy."
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is our spectacular Bailey Pittman, MS LPC-Associate. She is supervised by Katie Nix, MA LPC-S. She has experience working with adults, adolescents, and couples who are struggling with trauma, addiction, body image, communication, grief, and everyday struggles. She has a special place in her heart for those dealing with trauma, perfectionism, and relationship challenges.

What does Bailey like most about therapy?:

"I’ve always felt that therapy was not only a passion of mine but a calling. I love being able to create an environment where someone feels the freedom to truly be themselves with full acceptance and without feelings of shame, guilt, or judgment. It’s beautiful to be a part of my clients’ transformative experiences where they can unload the weight of their trauma, perfectionism, and difficult experiences to become weightless and empowered.”
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is our wonderful Aymen Osmani, MA LPC-Associate. She is currently being supervised by Katie Nix, MA LPC-S. She has experience with and works with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds. She focuses on all forms of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relational trauma, family relationship issues, life transitions, sexual function, and identity development.

What does Aymen like most about therapy?:

"Being a therapist is more than a job--it reflects a core part of me that enjoys getting to know people at a genuine level. The therapy process allows for authentic, face-to-face conversations in a digitally intertwined world. As a Therapist, I guide people through personal challenges, help ease emotional burdens, and empower people to achieve a healthier mind. With a new mindset, clients can pursue new ways to live in both their professional and personal lives".
THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is our amazing Amanda Hinchey, MEd. LPC. She has experience with children, teens, and young adults. She incorporates solution-focused, person-centered, and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to fit each individual's needs.

What does Amanda like most about therapy?:

"I like building a relationship with people and watching them grow and learn more about themselves. It’s incredible watching an individual’s transformation from when they take the courageous step of initiating therapy, to when they put our conversations into action and see positive changes in their life. I feel honored to get to be a part of this process. Whether it’s working towards better self-understanding, improving communication, increasing healthy coping skills, or just needing to feel heard, I love working with people to help them achieve their goals".

THERAPIST SPOTLIGHT!

This is the exceptional Sarah Penoli. She is an intern student who is supervised by Kylie Henry MS, LPC. She has experience and works with teens, young adults, and families. She uses Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused and Solution Focused approaches and specializes in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, communication, family conflict, and parent consultations. Sarah is passionate about helping her clients find relief in any struggles they are experiencing as well as assisting all of the staff at Bright Space Therapy. She truly goes the extra mile and we are so lucky to have her!

What does Sarah like about therapy?:

"What I like the most about therapy is that therapy can be anything you need it to be. As a therapist, we see people at their lowest, and it's amazing to be able to walk with them on their journey towards self-love. It's hard to be vulnerable, and for me, it's an honor to be invited into the heart and mind of someone and be able to participate in their journey towards healing. In the words of Brené Brown "If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.”, and in this profession, being able to remove that shame for someone else is unmatched!"

Damn. My dear friend Elizabeth Gilbert sees me. Her journal pages may need to come with warning labels.

I had the same gut-punch-bear-hug feeling when my therapist told me that I needed to work on my "Let go and let Brené" approach to life.

"Ouch and thank you" at the exact same time. ❤️

With the economy starting to slowly open back, I have heard mixed emotions. Some people are anxiously awaiting to get back out so they can return to work or just return to some normalcy, while others are feeling more anxious about what could happen if the world tries to go back to normal too soon. Whichever side you are on, it is important to BREATHE through this time. Deep breathing has been proven to help reduce anxiety and stress levels. I am attaching some breathing exercises that help reduce anxiety and stress! My favorite is 4-7-8 breathing :)

Bored during social distancing? Try doing a self care challenge! It is SUPER important during this time to make sure we are still taking care of ourselves! If you’re missing sports and need some competition in your life, challenge a friend or have the whole family do the challenge! Whoever loses can buy the others a treat once social distancing is over! Make it fun!

Especially in a time like this, we need to be kind and be there for one another. We need to check up on our friends and family. Social distancing can take a bigger toll on some people than others. Just because we cannot see each other in person does not mean we cannot BE THERE emotionally for one another. Text your friend, give them a call, schedule a FaceTime date, do a group zoom hangout!

If you feel like this social distancing is taking a toll on you, reach out to friends and family. Or even reach out to a professional. You are not in this alone 💕
