Therapy & Counseling

At Lotus Trauma Care, we specialize in trauma-focused therapy. Our trauma-informed therapists emphasize the importance of building healthy therapeutic relationships that increase your ability to strengthen relationships in your support system outside of the therapy room. We promote skills towards regulation and emotional management, as well as target unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviors. At our core, we serve to increase your ability to have control over your own life, and ultimately, your ability to assert positive change in the world around you.

Worsham El, LCSW, CFTP

My name is Worsham El. While my title is “therapist”, I think of myself as a mental health coach. I focus on the use of your strengths to empower you. Each of my clients experience genuine engagement tailored to fit their individual needs. I am curious of your interests, your strengths, your passion,your motives, and your desires. I am eager to support you in being your best you. I don't assume that I have all the answers to what your path looks like. I know that your experiences are unique and your path needs to be too.

I believe my role as your therapist is to support you in the use of your natural strengths to achieve and maintain your goals and well-being. I provide parent coaching, individual, group, and family therapy. I use expressive techniques such as dance, art, poetry, yoga and mindfulness to effectively treat the impact of trauma and toxic stress.
