Cami Presha, LMHC
Hi, I’m Cami! As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have worked in a variety of settings helping teens and adults who experience different mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, trauma and substance use, as well as those who felt overwhelmed, misunderstood, had difficulty with life transitions or relationships, or want more balance and peace in their life. My style is eclectic, and my approach is person centered. I use behavior therapy techniques to identify patterns, triggers, and make changes, though to help you get to where you're going, I need to know where you're coming from.
Therapy is for everyone. Humans, and their inner most thoughts and feelings, are complicated. Imagine what a more thoughtful and peaceful world it would be if everyone prioritized their mental health. While feeling distressed is often a catalyst to searching for a therapist, already having the tools to alleviate distressful feelings can help you emotionally regulate and cope during times of stress and hardship.
Therapy is not, nor should it be, one size fits all. You can expect me to help you through life’s challenges, identify maladaptive behaviors and develop healthier coping skills. When your thoughts, feelings and actions are not aligned with the peace you desire, it can cause incredible distress to your wellbeing and relationships. Therapy can be a powerful experience which brings up many emotions. We will process these emotions together, as partners in your mental health journey.
Additionally, as a mixed-race person I have had success connecting with people who feel “othered” in our society, who have struggled with their identity, and have helped them to find harmony within themselves. Let's chat about what brought you here and about where you want to go next!
