“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.”
― Bessel A. van der Kolk,
Welcome! My name is Stephanie Campuzano. I am the owner of Invite Healing therapy. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a focus on trauma related issues and substance use recovery. I grew up in Southern California and moved to the PNW to pursue my degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Seattle University.
Over the past six years, I have worked with a wide range of individuals struggling to manage mild to severe mental health symptoms such as anxiety, depression, trauma, suicidality, dissociations, and issues related to family and relationships. My main focus today is in helping individuals navigate through difficult emotions and physical reactions stemming from childhood and/or adult trauma. Through my work over the years, I have recognized the importance of sharing compassion, support, and advocacy towards individuals who look like me.
Although I primarily work with individuals of color and immigrant communities, I open my expertise to all individuals because I understand that trauma can impact all people.
Areas of Focus: Trauma related symptoms, PTSD/Complex PTSD, multicultural issues and racial identity, substance use addictions/recovery, anxiety and depression, relationship issues, women's issues, and self esteem. I work with adults and adolescents ages 14+.
Some of the treatments I use in therapy are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Informed Focus techniques, Narrative Therapy, Attachment Theory, Mindfulness Based Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy
Certifications: Certified Clinical Trauma Professional - 2023
I believe everyone has the potential to feel in control of their lives and my purpose is to help you find that potential. As your therapist, I commit to providing you with a collaborative, empowering, and unique style of therapy to fit your presenting needs and concerns. This style involves me helping you learn about yourself in ways we were never taught in schools, through society, and sometimes within our own homes.
As a first gen Latina born from immigrants, I invite discussions of inclusivity, oppression, and social justice because I, too, understand what it means to feel different and not included. I also recognize the stigmas associated with mental health around different cultures and perspectives and want to support you in finding healing that works specifically for you. My space is meant to help you feel safe, heard, and in some ways, a student of yourself. I will help you increase emotional awareness and find meaning to your thoughts and feelings so you can feel more confident with your life's journey. You won't have to journey through the healing alone.
You deserve this space.
Please feel free to message me for free 10-15 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit!
I look forward to meeting you.
Lastly, give yourself some praise for inviting the search towards healing.
