"Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it."--Albus Dumbledore
Hi, I'm Lydia Blackwell, owner of Jaded Phoenix Counseling Services. I have both my LMHC and NCC credentials and specialize in working with Couples/Relational issues, as well as Anxiety disorders in individuals. I am a big outdoors enthusiast and love to incorporate physical wellness into my counseling services when desired. I have experience in a variety of mental health settings that include working at a non-profit for 5+ years, an inpatient facility, a group practice and now my own practice for the past three years. My three top values in life are authenticity, adventure and peace. I am a type 5 enneagram, so I also thrive on learning new things. I often share articles, videos and worksheets each week that are aimed at aiding you in the counseling process. My goal as your counselor is to be genuine enough to laugh and cry with you, and honest enough to tell you the truth. I would be honored to join your on your journey to becoming the strongest version of yourself.
