Norma Vilchis, MA

I have a wide array of experience with individuals, emerging adults, and youth. I specialize in treating trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD, and low self-esteem. I utilize Person-Centered, Strengths-Based, Solution-Focused, and Trauma-Informed approaches. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe-space where clients are able to share, explore, and implement solutions to meet their goals. I operate from a holistic viewpoint, with consideration of clients’ biological, psychological, cultural, and environmental make-up. I focus on building a collaborative and supportive therapeutic relationship. Life is messy and full of challenges. I view these challenges as an opportunity for a person to grow through adversity. Getting familiar and comfortable with vulnerability has the power to shift how you show up for yourself, in relationships, and in communities. 

I believe that by showing up in your life, letting oneself be fully seen by others, and embracing all of who you are results in a greater level of fulfillment. When allowing yourself to be honest about your feelings, emotions, and experiences, it can open up your mind in a positive way. It allows you to be supported, held, and recognized in both joy and challenges. It connects you to others in a real, human way. It can be a reminder of the most healing experiences and the responsibility one has with one another.  Starting with yourself is always most important. It’s about knowing you are worthy of having your stories, experiences, selves seen, and be filled with awareness and self-compassion. Being well prepared is a major contributor to self-confidence. I’m happy to partake in your journey to encourage healing, tenacity, and perseverance. I enjoy building a sincere connection to my clients. I will work with you to help you become the best version of yourself. You do not have to be alone in this process. I look forward to working with you!
