About Rebel and Heal

Break the Stigma Today

Welcome to Rebel and Heal Counseling Services, where the mission is to provide services that support clients in rebelling and healing against every message and stigma that keeps individuals and families stuck in cyclical patterns. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in treating trauma and healing the body. My passion is teaching clients to become more attuned to their bodies and discover the root of negative thought patterns. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, EMDR Certified Therapist and Certified Brainspotting Practitioner I utilize EMDR and Brain Spotting to help clients rewire their brains and heal their bodies.

I have experience supporting clients across the life span starting as early as 12 years old and I also enjoy helping strengthen family systems to include parent and adolescent relationships. I have extensive training and experience treating identity crises, relationship conflict, sexual trauma, domestic violence, childhood abuse, parent-child conflict, racial trauma, anxiety, depression, and a myriad of other difficulties that cause repeat body responses and reactions.

The healing process is an intense journey and I consider myself a guide through one of the most difficult but rewarding processes. Let’s normalize healing the inner child and redefining what it means to be strong. Let’s normalize rebelling against the stigma of mental health and the loudness of shame. Rebelling and healing means taking back control and power over your life.

EXPLORE IIESHA'S SPEAKING TOPICS

Trauma and Attachment

Trauma can impact anyone and everyone and can be a single event or a series of events that cause a negative shift in how a person views themselves or the world. “Something is wrong with me” or “The world is bad”. Sometimes trauma symptoms aren’t noticed until there is an unforeseen stressor that then causes an onset of crippling symptoms that impact everything. The treatment of trauma requires tools that require the rewiring of the brain and body using effective brain and body-based techniques.

Work Stress

Most time is spent at work and work stress can lead to sleep issues, relationship issues, anxiety, and irritability. This is a different generation when parents are working multiple jobs, going to school, raising kids, making dinner, and trying to live healthy lifestyles. There is also a myriad of stressors caused by economics, politics, racism, sexism, and or socialism that contribute to life stressors. Everyday stress requires processing issues of control and safety.

Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety and depression are two of the most acceptable diagnoses that people feel are normal to manage. It is a disservice to manage anxiety and depression with coping techniques instead of re-processing the root of the symptoms. Anxiety is rooted in fear and depression is rooted in a lack of connection. Feelings of fear and lack of connection cannot be eliminated by learning techniques such as deep breathing. These symptoms require reprocessing and bodywork.

Family Conflict and Mending Relationships

Family conflict is usually the result of learned behaviors and unhealthy coping that has been passed down generationally. The conflict between generations requires slowing down to acknowledge and identify family triggers and teaching regulation skills. Shame is one of many prominent and invisible family traits that is passed down and manifests as conflict.

Intimate Partner Domestic Violence

Intimate partner violence impacts various couples regardless of socioeconomic status, education, relationship type, or relationship status. Victim blaming and social stigma are common reasons for not getting help. Toxic relationships and intimate partner violence stem from unhealthy attachment issues. Healing from unhealthy relationships is very difficult especially when there’s a lack of support and or shame. Healing internally is the key to healing from external relationships.
