Tequina Adams Ballew EMDR Salt Lake Therapist
“I believe that we could heal the world if we would only first seek to heal ourselves. Some of the most life changing moments of our life come when we decided to sit with our discomfort and fight through our tribulations. Though the pain and anguish allow these moments to feel unconquerable, taking the steps toward your own healing allows these obstacles to become a period of transformation, growth, or liberation. Together we can explore your journey and the answers that you hold within.”
