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.
APPROACHES TO THERAPY
My approach is eclectic in that I combine a variety of therapeutic techniques to best meet each individual. Some of the modalities that inform my practice include but are not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Ego State Therapy, Attachment Theory, Somatic Therapy, PACT (Psycho-Biological Approach to Couples Therapy), Depth Psychology, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).

With You Every Step of the Way
You may be deciding whether you should try therapy and have landed on this page during your search. The journey can sometimes be overwhelming because it is important to find someone with whom you feel comfortable and connected. Keep in mind whatever challenge you are dealing with (grappling with depression, not being able to escape the worries swirling in your mind, feeling heavy with loss and grief, feeling dissatisfied with your relationship, or lacking direction or a sense of purpose) is part of our shared human experience. It is ok if you are not sure where to begin and how to navigate life’s challenges. There is support and resources and you don’t have to do it alone. Therapy will provide you with a safe space where you can examine and explore the stuck area in your life and learn how to move beyond it. In my role as your therapist, I will provide you with emotional containment and support. Together we will challenge unfavorable perceptions you may have about yourself, discover and cultivate your unique traits, and help you become the best version of yourself. I will help you step out of your comfort zone, confront the past, and let go of beliefs and values that no longer serve you. In my therapeutic approach, I primarily use an existential framework and weave in Narrative therapeutic principles, Inner Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness. Let’s connect and find out if we are a good match.
