Roxy Humphrey, RCC, EMDR
Roxy (she/her) has been journeying alongside people throughout her adult life as a teacher, intern supervisor, mentor, mountain guide, group facilitator, youth worker and now counsellor. She finds that, in the context of safe and caring relationships, people continually find the tools, resources, strength, and insight within themselves to steer their lives in new, life-giving directions.
Roxy’s counselling is informed and supported by constructivist modalities, where an individual is seen within the context of a greater social and cultural landscape. She sees how the broader world impacts individuals and also how working with individuals, couples, families, and communities impacts the broader world. She grounds her work in evidence based approaches, such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and she also includes mindfulness, experiential art practices, and somatic (body) attunement. Mostly, though, Roxy works hard to find the therapeutic style that works best for her clients.
Roxy currently holds a masters degree from City University of Seattle in Clinical Counselling, and has had education or training in a number of modalities and theories for various issues.
In her work with all people, queer and feminist theory inform her practice and she is constantly looking for new ideas and insights to enhance the ways she supports clients.
