Tina Abraham has eight years of experience in practice life coach, mental health coach, and and now as a social worker. Following her fruitful experiences as a life-coach, Tina pursued her clinical degree, a Masters in Social Work, from University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW). Tina holds additional certification from the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine as well as in administration of Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment for trauma-related conditions. Tina continues to hold groups and seminars on topics from divorce to mindfulness strategies.

Here’s Tina in her own words, writing here on her therapeutic style:

The most helpful psychotherapy is a collaborative respectful relationship that honors your innate healing abilities. I will create a safe space for you to explore situations that are currently hindering you from living the life you desire. These might include past or recent traumatic experiences, behaviors that feel compulsive and/or harmful, life transitions, societal pressures, or the desire to “have it all together.” Sometimes we seek relief in the wrong places which leaves us emotionally burnt out and seeking answers externally when the key to change is within. By combining mindfulness, EMDR, and other evidence-based approaches the process results in a deeper therapeutic alliance and supports the development of mindful coping skills and compassionate emotional regulation. Whether you are looking to learn skills or a place to talk through your concerns, I will help guide you to resolve past pain, balance your emotions and experience the joy and flow you were born with. In this therapeutic setting you can bring as much of yourself as possible into a compassionate relationship. This is where healing can happen.
