Iris Beshara, LCSW

Tulsa In Person & Telehealth

Iris Beshara (she/her), LCSW, is a bilingual somatic attachment-based therapist with 15 years experience. She specializes in working with those who have experienced trauma, childhood abuse, anxiety, depression, bereavement services for children, and postpartum support. Iris believes that through gentle yet deep attunement that people have the innate ability to unlock the needs of their body and spirit, ultimately to feel both comfortable and safe in their body again or experience it for the first time.

Many symptoms and body sensations arise when a trauma occurs or if there is a history of unmet needs. Feelings of shame, being stuck, or unable to be fully present in the ‘here and now’ can be overwhelming and exhausting. Iris engages with the mind, body, and spirit in order to unveil one’s inner strength and power. This enables being present and being able to maneuver both the challenging and joyful moments in life.

Iris has received extensive training in trauma informed models such as Somatic Experiencing, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma – Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Child and Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), and PMADS by Postpartum Support International. She is honored in being a space holder and being alongside in the journey of healing. Iris also offers therapy in Spanish.

Fay O’Neill, LCSW

Bartlesville In-Person & Telehealth

Fay O’Neill, (she/her), LCSW, CYT-500, TCTSY-F, is an attachment based somatic therapist and certified yoga teacher. Fay’s hope is to allow a space for the body to tell its story, for the wisdom that has been hidden and suppressed by trauma to slowly and safely emerge in a way that enables healing to unfold organically, in the presence of a safe and attuned relationship. Fay believes that complex trauma occurs in relationship and must be healed within a relationship that shares power, gives back your ability to choose for yourself, celebrates your authenticity, affirms your worthiness of care, and provides steady cues of safety so that your nervous system can begin to move out of a state of survival and into a state of connection, presence, and balance. Fay believes that the purpose of therapy is to dis-identify with the beliefs, emotions, labels, and stories we tell and the sensations that arise with them.  

With a background of social work and passion for social justice, Fay also allows space for exploration of how the intersectionality of race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, and mental and physical ability all play an important part in the individual’s present experience and how oppression, marginalization, discrimination and the systems that uphold them all contribute greatly to individual and collective trauma.

Fay’s approach to trauma treatment blends somatic bottom-up approaches and contemplative mindful approaches such as Somatic Experiencing, Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga, breathwork, mindfulness meditation, iRest Yoga Nidra meditation, Compassionate Inquiry, EMDR, and Internal Family Systems to facilitate healing and integration of the whole person, body, mind, and spirit.
