Cimena Gordon, MSW, LICSW
We often find ourselves feeling lost or not connected to who we strive to be. We feel voiceless and dismissed as though no one cares to listen to our pain. I want to build a safe and consistent relationship with you to find a renewed sense of self. In this space, I want to empower you to embrace your authentic self in the full circle of creation, nurturing, connecting and transforming. As we weave in the principles of mindful living together, I want to help you find the answers that have been inside of you all along as you begin to trust yourself and let go of whatever is holding you back.
Through somatic work, trauma informed care, and an attachment based lens, I strive to provide a holistic, integrative approach to mental health therapy allowing you to create positive healthy relationships in a new way.
I believe in you and want to truly hear you. I want your voice to be heard so you can live as your authentic self every day. Will you allow me to walk with you on this healing journey?
