I am trauma focused in my approach and I am sensitive to the effects that adverse events have on clients in their childhood and adulthood.
I enjoy working with clients who are having difficulty dealing with anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress as well as clients who feel lost and are questioning the purpose of life. I like to help clients learn what their true values are and how to live in line with them. Clients who have expressed grief over their childhood but are struggling with validation of their feelings may say things like "but I was never hit". Emotional abuse and neglect have a profound effect on human development. I enjoy helping educate on what Complex PTSD is and how it has affected the nervous system and what clients can do to heal.

My approach is targeted at each client's needs, but my primary modalities of treatment are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), trauma focused , and EMDR.
Often in life, we don't feel seen or heard by the world around us. Therapy should be a space where you can explore your authentic self, or find the tools you need to self-actualize into that person. I work with adolescents, adults and older adults seeking individual treatment, focusing on trauma, mood disorders and anxiety, with other focuses on the LGBTQIA+ community, body liberation, kink, and CNM/open relationships. Through our work together, I hope to help you feel understood and better understand yourself.

Dr. Bauman partners with patients dealing with issues related to depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, adjustment disorders, and relationship issues. It is typical for her to work with couples and/or families, but she often works with individuals as well. Therapy can help to solve problems, make decisions, set goals, reduce stress, and empower you to maintain a resilient approach to your life circumstances. Each person has strengths and weaknesses. Therapy works with both of these aspects, to help improve your life situation. Therapy isn't magic but it may seem magical when we collaborate together and change occurs!

I currently hold a Masters in Addiction and Mental Health and am finishing a secondary Masters in Clinical Mental Health, while working towards professional licensure. I take an integrated approach to counseling but am based in a logotherapeutic and Existential Psychotherapeutic theoretical orientation. I utilize these approaches while incorporating concepts from therapies such as Somatic and Emotion Focused therapy. If you are looking for a more philosophical approach that focuses on the existential givens and our place in the world while allowing room for our emotions and attachments, then I hope to work with you.

You are ready for a direct and compassionate approach that brings in simplicity, understanding and a "new pair of glasses". You have strengths you don't know about yet. Let me help you identify them and learn to use them wisely. Therapy is a co-inventive process. Let's work together on this beautiful puzzle.
