Mimi Gates, MA, LPC, CHT
Licensed Counselor and Certified Hakomi Therapist
While offering an integrative approach to therapy, I believe it is in our Relationship where Alchemy happens. Therapy is not only about our story – it is about the Storyteller. I utilize various techniques and experiences enabling us to explore and understand your individual and relational behaviors, habits and patterns in the Realms of the somatic, emotional, cognitive, energetic, and spiritual.
Ultimately, it is my heartfelt belief that Safety in the therapeutic relationship allows for increased self-awareness, for Transformation, and Ultimately, for our Truest self to emerge, to blossom – allowing you to more easefully and naturally live free (from…. fill in the blank) and empowered. I truly believe it takes Courage for us all to genuinely live from our most authentic place. How dare We not Shine Brightly!
My Interests and Passions
As well, I Love supervising budding and seasoned therapists.
My passions outside of work include beading, hiking, yoga, and horses. However, I Cherish nothing more than being Mama to two young men.
Nurturing flows from home to work easily.
When not at work, I’m often found in the Realm of Equus
All I need to be well
Lives deeply within me.
The healer who comes
Is a midwife
Who helps to birth
my original self.
It is from this place
I am ready to be
where I have never been before
Able now to know,
maybe for the first time
The Unbroken Field
