Hello, I’m Engela Hepworth
I am a Masters level professional counselor currently pursuing licensure as an LMSW. I specialize in Solution Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychotherapy.
I have a broad education base, having seen many parts of the world and diverse cultures. Beginning with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in South Africa, I was also awarded a Bachelor’s in Theology and Counseling while studying in London, UK. In the UK, I practiced as an accredited Licensed Counselor, helping individuals work through grief, loss, trauma and anxiety. I also assisted those suffering from addictions, OCD and depression. I am continuing my studies to become a CCTP (Certified Clinical Trauma Professional).
My passion is to see my clients – adolescents, adults, or families – work through difficult issues coming out stronger and ready to use the tools that they have learned to tackle future problems. I am a natural optimist and have a specific interest in helping those who have experienced trauma in their life. No trauma is too big or too small to work through. It will take time and hard work, but no trauma should hold us back from living the best life and realizing our fullest potential.
You may wonder if what you’ve been through could be considered trauma. The fact that you ask that question most probably means yes! You might have experienced an unexpected or unwanted divorce, loss of a child, an accident, something triggered a flashback, been a victim of a crime or abuse. One of my passions is to come alongside someone who is struggling and help process and overcome. I look forward to working and walking a journey with you!
