Under Clinical Supervision

Grace Eidman (Currier), Associate Professional Clinical Counselor, 15438 is practicing under the supervision of Rayne Banneck (California, LMFT, 124607) at Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

What a question! I've been interested in people - listening to them and supporting them, curious about why we do what we do - for as long as I can remember. My path, however, was a strange one. I was raised in a Christian technically-not-a-cult, where this curiosity was either discouraged or only to be used in a manipulative way. Being raised in this environment was confusing, but as a child, I didn't have much of a choice. When I became an adult, the abuse that ran deep in that group came to light. I became aware of my depression, anxiety, and complex trauma. After college, I knew I needed to do something different. I pursued an MA in counseling (and got a therapist for myself), hoping to better understand myself and the people around me. As I gained that understanding, I realized how meaningful it was for me to be able to hold space for others where there's no judgment, no hidden motives, just two people talking and allowing the weight of the world to lighten up and make a bit more sense of things. These days, I highly value the connections I forge with those I meet with - even though I know these relationships do not last forever, I hold them dearly in my heart and feel honored whenever someone will share their story with me and allow me to help them hold it.

What does a first session with you look like?

First things first - the boring paperwork and info (but that usually goes by pretty quickly). After that, the first session is about us getting to know each other. You can ask me anything you'd like, you can share with me whatever you'd like as you're comfortable, and I've got some questions I can ask (what are your hobbies, what brings you here, etc.) if you feel like you need a little direction.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I believe that this should be a given, but I'll state it explicitly: I want you to feel safe in the space we share. I am a compassionate, curious, and warm person, and I am also understanding that it takes time to trust. So, if something's not working for you or sitting right with you, let me know, and we can try something else. We can go slowly, and I'll support whatever pace you need to work at for as long as I can. Everyone is unique and no single approach works for everyone and every issue, and I appreciate you and want to honor your individuality and your experiences.

Education

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Master of Arts, Clinical Counseling, 2023

My degree is a MA in Clinical Counseling and comes from a CACREP-accredited program, where I received top-quality education and research opportunities, and focused especially on complex and relational trauma. I graduated Cum Laude and did my practicum with Liberation Institute, providing low-cost tele-mental health services to individuals of various cultures, backgrounds, and identities.

Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Master of Arts, Religion and Spirituality, 2023

My school was also connected to the Boston Theological Consortium, which enabled me to access resources from Harvard and many other highly rated institutions while I also pursued an MA in Religion to study spirituality and religious abuse/trauma. My thesis covered the topic of spiritual trauma/abuse, including how to identify it, how it develops, how to stop it, and how to heal from it.

Work History

In my practicum, I worked with The Liberation Institute, a telehealth community mental health group. I provided therapy for a diverse range of individuals coming from different financial backgrounds, cultural backgrounds, educational backgrounds, generations, identities, and issues. I learned so much there, and was fortunate to have two different supervisors to draw ideas and perspectives from. One was a LPCC, neurodivergent, queer, and passionate about advocacy and used parts work, and the other was a LMFT, more intellectual and psychodynamic, experienced with different spiritualities, and used ACT. Today I operate under the auspices of Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center, continuing to provide tele-mental health services to individuals in California from many different backgrounds and experiences.
