KUMARA HAMPTON THERAPY
"our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall".
What Inspired me to get into this field
When I was younger I went through a dark time in my life. With the assistance of a few dear mentors and a great therapist I was able to understand that terrain of darkness, to learn about who I am and what it meant to turn towards the struggle. Through determination and surrender to the process I made my way through. I began to know what authentic transformation and change feels like. I was then able to choose a path forward that brought meaning and strength. It created the impetus to go into studying mental health, addiction, psychology, and sociology. It created a strong desire to make something from my personal experience and studies that could truly help others through their own dark terrains and discomforts.
My mission as a therapist is to treat everyone who comes into my office with reverence and respect. I seek to create a space that is safe for deep inquiry and transformation. Whether a person may be seriously struggling in their lives, or are looking for a deeper sense of knowing themselves, I am passionate about being here to meet a person where they are at, to work towards a more fulfilling life. If you have sought out therapy before and have either not felt satisfied or did not get to where you want to go, I invite you to contact me and see if we can open the door to a therapeutic relationship that can deeply support you and create transformation.
Some areas I specialize in are addiction and trauma work. My scope of practice also includes working with a variety of mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, and more. I look forward to connecting and seeing how we can best support you.
Whatever challenges a person may face in their life, I feel it is important to remember that none of us need to “do it alone”, and indeed, asking for help is one of the most courageous steps we can take.
