Desiree D Lowit, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Hadley
I work with adults, children, adolescents and families. I counsel adults working in the treatment of PTSD and trauma related disassociation by utilizing the modality of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy as well as EMDR. Additionally I work with adults and adolescents with anxiety and depressive disorders, cognitive disabilities, learning differences and ADHD. I provide therapy for children under the age of five who negotiate the sequela for reactive attachment and sensory processing disorders, complex and developmental trauma. I use modalities such as sensorimotor, play, sand tray and dyadic therapies with children and their caregivers.
Another area of focus is supporting and working with families and their children with special needs, learning differences and developmental disabilities. I help families through empowerment while providing them with emotional support, educational consultation and parent guidance as they navigate the complex factors of raising a child with special needs.
I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of Trauma and Developmental Trauma (Level I and Level II). This training is through the Somatic Psychology Insititute in Boulder CO. Additionally, I am trained in attachment focused EMDR Levels I, II and III, through the Parnell Institute (
