Hello, are you ready to heal yourself emotionally and mentally? I’m Jimiko, a Licensed Clinical Therapist in NC and SC, owner of Emotional Healing & Recovery, LLC. Let's face it, life is hard and living in a toxic culture doesn't make it any easier. Talking and getting things out works wonders for your physical and mental health. Why suppress feelings and emotions when you can learn to work through them? I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. You are not alone in this crazy world so let's talk!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session which is an initial assessment, I will ask a lot of questions. These questions assists me in locating where trauma could have possibly occurred in the client's life. I also utilize Compassionate Inquiry by diving into the client's childhood to address any traumas that may have happened which have now manifested into maladaptive behaviors that causes suffering as an adult.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strength is that I dig deep into my client's childhood to get a better understanding of how they adapted to childhood stressors or trauma which may have manifested overtime into maladaptive behaviors or mental health diagnoses.
