Root and Grow

EMDR and IFS Therapist Rhode Island and Ohio

Welcome! I’m so glad that you are here. Root and Grow specializes in therapy for LGBTQIA+ folks, abuse survivors, and people looking to reclaim freedom after religious trauma. Whatever brought you here, I know that relief and healing is possible. Let’s do this together.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy that helps resolve and health traumatic and stressful events. In fact, it is a proven therapy to support folks who have experienced hurt and trauma.

Leaving your faith can be both isolating and painful. Whereas working through your spiritual evaluation with a supportive professional can help you not feel so alone.

Therapy focused on treating symptoms of trauma while helping you heal from your past. Together we will get to the root of your pain, and help you build the life you hope for.

About me:

Stephanie Brashear

EMDR Therapist, Rhode Island

We just might be a great fit if:

You are a gen z or millennial who has experienced sexual abuse or assault .

You are a queer person who has been hurt by families, organizations or religions due to your lived experiences.

Finding a therapist is a deeply personal choice. It is important that you find the absolute best fit possible. In our initial conversation, we will talk together to see if we are a good fit. If you decide we aren’t a good match, I will help get you some names of folks who may be a good fit.
