I work with adults and adolescents with trauma related disorders including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Dissociative Disorders including Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID, formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder), mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). My therapeutic approach usually involves Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and/or Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), though I may use other theories or approaches depending on the needs of the client and the therapeutic process. I am also trained in Prolonged Exposure therapy for the treatment of PTSD.
I have over fifteen years of clinical experience working with trauma survivors and with people who have Borderline Personality Disorder in inpatient, partial hospitalization, and outpatient settings. I completed the intensive training course for DBT in 2003 and have been running outpatient DBT skills groups since 2004.
I am passionate about helping people who are overwhelmed by their symptoms related to trauma and/or Borderline Personality Disorder. I am available for a phone consultation to see if we are a good fit in working together and to help you "build a life worth living."

Lora Jean Vaughan's Groups

DBT Skills for Adults

The DBT Skills Group lasts for six months and covers four sets of skills to include: Mindfulness: Focuses on self-awareness and learning to access one’s internal wisdom, to become less reactive, and to allow choices for one’s self through acceptance and change. Interpersonal Effectiveness: Focuses on learning how to communicate effectively. This is particularly helpful for people who have trouble maintaining healthy relationships and healthy boundaries. Emotion Regulation: Focuses on identifying and describing emotions and understanding the function of emotions. Distress Tolerance: Focuses on learning to tolerate distress and to survive crises without making things worse.
