What is Your Story Rewritten?
Cerissa Rhodes, LCSW
Is your child struggling to understand or make sense of a scary or upsetting event?
Are you or your child struggling with anxiety or OCD?
Does it impact your sleep?
Cause you to avoid activities you used to enjoy?
Are you noticing you or your child freezing or panicking in everyday interactions?
This is why I opened Your Story Rewritten, LLC in July of 2023 with the goal of providing the best, most effective therapy to children and adults that struggle with trauma, anxiety and OCD. Those that feel as if they have no control over their life. I envisioned a place where clients felt at home, safe, and loved.
Further, I wanted Your Story Rewritten, LLC to be a place where other therapists learned to become safe, trusted and effective therapists treating children and adults with trauma and anxiety. There are not enough of us, trained to work with littles under 6 and I want to change that!
Your Story Rewritten, LLC partners with practicum and student interns providing training and guidance to new and upcoming therapists as well as licensure supervision to LCSWAs (NC & VA) and LMHPCA (NC).
