Meet Thearica Bright-Mickle (Rica), Graduate Counseling Intern

Couples Therapy – Couples I work with want to be understood and accepted by their partners for who they truly are at their core. As your supportive guide, I’m here to help you rebuild genuine and accepting relationships sustained by trust, effective communication, commitment, and deeper intimacy. Using research-based Emotionally Focused Therapy, we will identify how your emotions affect your communication and help you shape new ways to communicate, rebuild, and reconnect.

Family Therapy – Any family can struggle with communicating their concerns and needs. Because every family has its own unique structure, I will help you learn to identify how you might be getting stuck in negative patterns of communication that don’t end well.

From there, I will help you learn how to communicate and set goals as a family to address “the hard stuff” and build healthier bonds. For those families who have been impacted by trauma, I have special training to help you learn how to be a resilient family who heals together when you have “endured more than most.”

Individual Therapy – I am here to support you in building stronger relationships, find your true passions, cope with trauma and communicate your emotions more effectively. Most importantly, let’s help you find self-love and acceptance.
