Hello, my name is Reika Faust (AMFT/APCC) and congratulations on your first step in looking for the right therapist for you.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Burlingame, CA
Supervised by Karen Blesius Rhodes LCSW
For the past 4 years I have primarily worked with sexual assault survivors as well as men who have been incarcerated. My work here has influenced how I work with clients through a trauma informed approach to therapy. I truly believe, that all individuals have experienced moments of trauma and the sacred space required to help traverse the challenges that stem from that trauma is what brings the work forward.
I have spent 2 years working with incarcerated men as well as with youth in the juvenile delinquent system, conducting both individual and evidence based group therapy.
The path to healing starts with this first step, being here and simply looking. Even now, you are displaying personal growth with seeking support in your life. Our lives are always about growth, moving from the place we are at right now into a path that feels more authentic, true and comforting for ourselves.
There is no one size fits all when it comes to therapy. Each individual comes to the table with a different skill set and different histories that brings them to therapy. Together, we will explore what may work best for you and move forward from there. This time is for you and how best to serve you and your goals.
