If you have trauma, or know someone who does, this video was made specifically for you. I'm Hayley The Therapist, a licensed mental health professional and coach.

Profile picture for Hayley Adams

Hayley Adams

My name is Hayley Adams, CMHC, LPC, CCTP. I am a retired Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veteran and licensed therapist. I graduated in 2017 from Thomas University with a Masters in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Addictions. I also have credentials in trauma treatment. I understand trauma from both personal and professional lenses. My behavioral health background began 15 years ago on a volunteer basis where I worked with Native American tribes to provide mental health support to teen mothers. From there, my passion for people began to grow full force. I got my start as a therapist working in a Therapeutic Community (TC) in a prison providing rehabilitation services. I went on to work for a few dual diagnosis centers working in addictions after that. I then branched out and began curriculum development writing therapeutic content for three distinguished dual diagnosis centers. Wanting to broaden my horizons, I worked for an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). There, I specialized in working with first responders, trauma cases, crisis care, and family issues. My love for people didn’t stop growing there. I wanted to help more individuals on a wider scale. As a result I started the Traumagility podcast and coaching academy. I’m on a mission to help at least ONE MILLION individuals find healing in their lives.
