Meet Cory Reese

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and owner of

Bright Way. I offer solution-focused therapeutic services. 

I am trained in EMDR, and have 20 years of social work experience helping people through some of the most challenging times of their lives. I also provide regular speaking engagements on the topics of depression management, overcoming adversity, and tools for building trauma into post-traumatic growth.

Trauma and PTSD

Trauma can have a dramatic impact on how we see ourselves and the world. Some common examples of trauma are:

  • Religious trauma & faith transitions

  • A history of abuse

  • Being neglected as a child

  • Experiencing spiritual or religious abuse

  • Being in an accident or natural disaster

  • Being attacked or assaulted

  • Witnessing domestic abuse or violence

  • Trauma as a result of being part of the LGBTQ community

  • A sudden death of a loved one

I am trained in EMDR therapy which is an evidence-based treatment that is highly effective in helping people recover from trauma and other difficult life experiences. I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for healing. You don't need to face this challenge alone. 


I have 17+ years of experience working specifically with people who are suffering with chronic illness and pain. I can help teach coping skills, tools for managing depression and anxiety, mindfulness, and empowerment. I would love to help you strengthen hope, joy, and mental health.


Life Stressors

Stress is a normal part of life. But if the stress becomes long-term, or difficult to manage on your own, the outside perspective and support of a therapist can be very helpful. Some common stressors that people seek help for are:

  • Heavy workload or taking on too much responsibility

  • Being unhappy at your job

  • Fear of public speaking

  • Faith transitions

  • Test anxiety

  • Facing discrimination

  • Loneliness or lack of support

  • Birth of a child

  • Low self-esteem
