Psychotherapy, LMHC

Not Taking New Clients
Lillyana Morales is a multi-racial, licensed therapist and certified clinical trauma professional with a passion for helping women (and female identifying) who are tired of the patterns they’ve found themselves stuck in and craving a change. Healing is not linear and having a supportive space to process and express yourself can make it less scary.

Profile
“Through my own personal experiences with trauma, I was drawn to understanding the healing process and empowering individuals to go from surviving to thriving.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in education while I was completing my graduate studies. I've always felt strongly about helping others in any way that I can. Through my own personal experiences with trauma, I was drawn to understanding the healing process and empowering individuals to go from surviving to thriving.
What should someone know about working with you?
If you find yourself struggling with difficult relationships, work/life balance, practicing self-love, or learning how to feel comfortable in your own body after trauma, I encourage you to reach out. I help people learn how to be present and learn skills to handle the curveballs that life throws. We will identify and build upon your strengths, developing tools to manage your thoughts and feelings so you can fully live your life. I work from an integrative approach, which means our work together is tailored specifically for your situation and needs. I incorporate CBT, DBT, mindfulness, and forward-facing trauma treatment models. Fun fact: If you're in a completely relaxed body, it's physiologically impossible to have a panic attack. Let's get you connected to your body so you can take back control of your life!
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I will never stop trying to learn in this field because there are always new developments. I strive to stay updated on the newest research and interventions that can help clients succeed.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values include safety, empathy, and connection. I bring all of these to the (virtual) therapy room. I believe that these are key elements in creating a space where an individual can heal.
