Welcome. We are so glad you’re here.
We know there are many therapy centers and therapists across Baton Rouge and we consider it an honor that you are considering us to support you. Here, on this page, we want to share a little bit more about who we are as a therapy center so that you can feel even more at ease about receiving support here.
Highland Healing Center was founded in November of 2022 by Debbie Breaux, LCSW, a relational and complex trauma recovery specialist.
In 2008 when she returned to college to complete her undergraduate degree, Debbie Breaux knew she wanted to create the type of therapy center she wished had been available upon beginning her healing journey. After her 3 children were in school, she started a more intentional path towards learning more about herself and growing into the person she truly wanted to be.
After graduating from LSU, she completed a year-long certification in relational coaching. She then trained and was certified in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and eventually decided to go to graduate school for Social Work.
Debbie’s pioneering spirit inspiring her to continue learning, evolving, and refining her skills and knowledge is the guiding principle for Highland Healing Center, as well as the commitment to make HHC like no other.
Therapy that results in deep healing is hard to find. Some spend years with a therapist talking about the same issues week after week with no real progress. Talk therapy can only get us so far. We know it can feel daunting to find a therapist you connect with, who is taking new clients, and is skilled at helping you resolve your old complex trauma. Highland Healing Center was created to help you connect with a therapist who can help you move towards a more enjoyable and meaningful life.
Hi, I'm Debbie Breaux
Founder of Highland Healing Center
My own diverse background has shaped my values, my path, how I see the world, and how I practice therapy. In addition, my personal and family experiences with loss, death, divorce, substance abuse, grief, and coming out in midlife have shaped who I am today. My personal path has taught me that healing requires more than talk therapy alone, and I am deeply grateful to many gifted therapists, mentors, and coaches who have lovingly and skillfully been my guides over the past 30 years.
I know at my core that healing – through healing modalities, therapy and connection – is possible. I’ve created Highland Healing Center as a sacred place where every detail has been curated with deep intention. Nuances matter to me – like the variegated lemon trees at our entrance, the lavender and lemon essential oils, the soothing music, an abundance of live plants, and an immaculately clean space – all so you can feel safe, at ease, and welcome.
My work is deeply meaningful to me and I am committed to providing you with the best therapy experience possible. Everyone on the Highland Healing Center team has been specifically chosen because of their deep commitment to helping you rediscover your essential self through the life changing work of therapy. We want you to believe that healing is possible. I look forward to connecting with you and I’m so glad you are here.
