RESIDENT IN COUNSELING
Hello! My name is Senttra Snowden. I began my career in education with a Bachelor's in English Literature and Secondary Education from Meredith College. After spending a few years as a high school English teacher, I studied Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Johns Hopkins University receiving my Master's of Science in 2021. I am currently an LPC--Resident in Counseling.
As a clinician, I provide my clients with the space to explore the weight they are carrying using person-centered and Feminist therapy. At the core, I value collaborative relationships grounded in trust, each person’s authenticity, and an honoring of each person’s lived experiences. With Feminist therapy, we discuss intersectionality, identify development, socialization, and oppression in order to promote empowerment and cycle breaking. I enter our collective space authentically as a Black woman and invite my clients to authentically enter as themselves as well.
I also honor and value cultural healing through work with intergenerational and transgenerational trauma. This means I may journey with my clients to explore their childhood, attachment, or past traumas and the traumas of their generational culture. In addition to trauma, I assist with anxiety, depression, codependency, relationship issues, adult transitions, grief, and identity exploration.
I stand for rest. I stand for restoration. You are allowed to let go of who you think you need to be to become who are and find your way home.
