Old Hickory, TN – When faced with a devastating loss or trauma, every person has their own means of coping, but those feelings of sadness, anger, shock, guilt and helplessness are part of the natural healing process.
Blythe Landry is a licensed clinical social worker and the founder of Blythe Spirit Counseling Services, specializing in clients seeking to cope with issues related to grief, trauma and addiction.
“The people that come to me are coming from a place of darkness, but of course that darkness is always the entry point to the light,” says Blythe. “I help my clients walk toward whatever that light looks like for them.”
Therapy is a co-creative relationship where change can be manifested. Blythe says her personal philosophy is that nobody’s story is too painful to be heard or healed; people deserve to obtain the tools to overcome their challenges in a way that leaves them feeling empowered and independent.
“I know my clients are whole with or without me. They just have to recognize it,” says Blythe. “I’ve never had a client not get better and the reason for that is I know they will.”
When we experience crises in our lives, the majority of people cannot or will not sustain a relationship with us. That’s why Blythe believes there is no greater spiritual experience than to be able to sit with someone in their most vulnerable state. She says it’s her goal to get clients to a place where they don’t need her anymore.
“We’re afraid to ask for help because we’re afraid there won’t be anyone on the other side,” says Blythe, “When we’re truly ready to receive help, a hand will extend and it won’t let go. I enjoy being that hand for people walking through the darkness.”
