Courtney Loyola, MA, LPC

Courtney is the owner of Onyx Counseling and Wellness Center, and a trauma therapist specializing in narcissistic abuse recovery, dissociation, and complex trauma. She uses a multi dimensional approach to therapy, allowing for total healing and wellness. These approaches are: EMDR, CBT, Shadow Work and Somatic Experiencing. 

"I believe that all humans are interconnected beings, constantly being influenced by the past, present, and desire for the future. Current thoughts, emotions and behaviors are influenced by past events (good and bad), and people operate according to deeply ingrained patterns. 
 
As a therapist, my goal is for you is to identify your patterns and make changes to better serve your present reality. I believe in empowering you to love yourself enough to fight for a better future. I will work with you to reconcile the past, shake off those cobwebs and overcome internal conflict. Through CBT, you will learn how to recognize unhealthy thought patterns, challenge them and create a new healthy mindset. EMDR will allow you to process and clear traumatic and distressing memories to break free of dysfunctional patterns. Shadow work will access 'dark' or child parts of self; identifying old wounds and beginning to heal the self."

Kristen McAdams, MA, LPC

Kristen is a trauma therapist who specializes in narcissistic parent recovery and post traumatic growth. She uses a humanistic, holistic, talk-based therapy to allow for total healing. Her approaches are: NLP, RRT, psychodynamic and solution focused. 

"Each person's unique qualities and experiences influence their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are then brought into the context of our social, professional, and relational worlds.  My goal is to empower clients to heal and grow by cultivating an identity outside of trauma. I can help you heal from the 'side effects' of trauma and change unhealthy patterns in your life.”

Kristen uses her background in integrative health, neuropsychology, and trauma to foster an atmosphere of safety and rapport that establishes the grounds for unpacking a multidimensional approach to your well-being.
