Hayley Hughes, LMSW
I can help you with:
- Grief & Loss
- Life Transitions
- Professional/Educational Challenges
- Sexual Trauma
- Sexuality/Gender Identity Exploration/Affirmation
- LGBTQIA+ Individuals
While each individual is shaped by unique personal, cultural and societal factors, we all share an intrinsic desire for self-realization.
With a foundation of collaboration, empowerment and trust, we will work together to uncover patterns and dynamics that keep you from feeling whole.
As a therapist and social worker, Hayley (She/Her) utilizes a client-centered, trauma-informed, identity affirming approach to help you explore how relationships, past experiences and societal systems have influenced your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships.
Hayley strongly believes in the power of community and the therapeutic relationship as a tool for personal growth and larger societal change. Valuing the therapeutic alliance as the most vital component of therapy, Hayley looks to create a safe space that fosters collaboration, openness and trust.
