Services & Areas of Expertise
Throughout my 29 years of professional experience, I consistently receive feedback from my clients that they trust me and find that I engage them in a meaningful therapeutic relationship. I seek to understand what is happening in their emotional, physical and spiritual lives, emphasizing the importance of the body-mind connection. I enjoy working with teenagers, adults, and families.
I use many therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I also use Jungian Sandtray Therapy, meditation practices, art, and creative expression to accompany clients in their healing journeys. I am committed to staying engaged in current research on effective interventions for healing and wholeness.
I have experience working with clients about major life-transitions, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, health issues, chronic pain, fertility issues, physical impairment, relationship issues, gender identity, and sexual orientation. I also assist clients who are interested in exploring spiritual struggles or ways their spirituality may impact their healing process as they learn to cope with various life-challenges.
Many of my clients identify as Black, Latinx, Indigenous, transgender, and part of the LGBQIA+ community and I am committed to providing the best care possible to individuals with these experiences. I also welcome individuals of all different faith traditions and spiritual practices and those who claim no particular religious affiliation.
I practice Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) which is helpful for a wide range of mental health concerns. Eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation seem to activate your problem solving process; something that happens during REM sleep when your eyes are darting back and forth. By focusing on a specific problem, and both its negative and positive emotions, sensations, and beliefs, then adding bilateral stimulation, your brain begins problem solving. Since you are focused on the specific problem, your brain is able to work through it more effectively than what would happen if it randomly comes up while you are sleeping. EMDR is a very effective therapy intervention for anxiety, grief, phobias, addictions, pain, trauma, PTSD, and other mental health issues.
"Rhonda's gift goes beyond physical healing. I honestly believe that she has the ability to guide and assist in the healing of the soul of a person. I know this because Rhonda did that for me. She took my hand and gently, kindly, and compassionately guided my fractured soul through the darkness of grief and into a state of wholeness and well-being."
The journey of healing and wholeness is unique to each individual. My style of therapy is to engage each person's strengths and interests as we seek a healing path together. I have been working for over 29 years assisting a variety of teenagers, adults, and families to find healing and wholeness amidst the challenges of their lives. I enjoy working with people from a wide range of cultural experiences, spiritual beliefs, ages, and life-stages. I focus on the resiliency of the person and explore ways that enhance their coping skills.
As a colleague, I found Rhonda to have a unique ability to connect instantly with clients. Her integrity, expertise, and experience offer positive solutions to the hurting.

"When I felt that I was losing perspective and was having difficulty with an overwhelming sense of anxiety about my life, I sought a referral from a trusted therapist. That referral led me to Rhonda Davis. She has helped me to gain insight into myself as a person as well as a deeper awareness of ways to cope with the challenges of life through emotional, physical, psychological, educational, and spiritual avenues. Rhonda will supportively listen to you and walk gently with you down a path of self acceptance and setting healthy boundaries in order to live a healthier life. For me, she has been a precious gift."
