Darlene Cantu, Therapist
My name is Darlene Cantu MS LPC. Life is difficult even under the best circumstances but for many of us there has been a lot of extenuating circumstances that also impact our daily lives. Trauma that goes unhealed can lead to increased episodes of depression, anxiety, PTSD, just to name a few. Much of my career has been dedicated to assisting those impacted by trauma both in an inpatient and outpatient setting. When we think of trauma, we do not typically recognize the impact it has on our brain and then our behaviors, our bodies, and our view of self and the world around us.
Reaching out for therapy is scary, whether it is from past experiences, worries of the unknown (what therapy looks like on tv), or diminishing what we’ve experienced. Utilizing a variety of treatment modalities enables therapists like myself to provide skills, education, and healing from our past so that we can enjoy our present and look towards a brighter future.
