I specialize in helping people more effectively manage stress and mood (anxiety and depression), strengthen relationships, cope with difficult people, work through a current crisis or past trauma , and learn to quiet the voice of your inner critic that falsely tells you that you're not enough.
Do you go to work each day with a knot of anxiety or dread in the pit of your stomach? Is your work stress affecting your confidence and spilling over into your personal life? Or maybe there are worries or emotional pain in your personal life that are also affecting your relationships or your work. Either way, I can help. We'll seek to better understand what's keeping you stuck, learn new strategies and identify your strengths to help you heal, overcome challenges and restore your confidence and well-being.

In the nearly 20 years I’ve spent working in the field of mental health and trauma , I’ve deeply appreciated the honor given to me when being invited on the healing journey of a survivor. I believe a strong therapeutic alliance of empathy, compassion, and hope is the key to working together to address the challenges inherent in healing from traumatic wounds. I work with a strong stance of empathy that is directed and guided by various evidenced-based modalities as well as the most recent research in the neuroscience of trauma .

Do you have recent trauma or loss? As a certified Brainspotting therapist, we can focus on releasing the painful emotions and reactions to recent trauma or loss that you no longer need dominating your life, if you're ready. These include grief (profound sadness, anger, shame, guilt, numbness and despair) anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, and depression. The further back the trauma the more challenging it can be, however I try hard to be supportive and help achieve the change you want. I have worked with all kinds of trauma with compassion. I seek to help you achieve vitality, peace, confidence and wholeness in your body.

I specialize in Trauma , Healing, Race, Identity, and Hope.
My name is Caleb Stephens, and I am an Intersectional Clinician. The reality of therapy is that it is inaccessible to most, and the majority of therapists gear their therapy around themselves, and not around the needs of the client, nor the layers of identity that exist. I am not a traditional therapist, as I am also an Activist, and the majority of the work that I do is Identity work. This is about meeting you where you're at, and I'm here for it.

Life can be a wonderful experience though it is guaranteed to be filled with challenges. We all manage these challenges in different ways, from controlling our food/body, perfectionism, avoidance and over functioning. These methods often leave us exhausted and overwhelmed. If this resonates with you I am here to help. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, self esteem/body image issues and trauma . I work with my clients to identify their own, unique value system which then serves as a guide post through life. By aligning with our values, we create space to accept the difficulties of life and lead a life you desire.

In 1989 the first professional journal article described an unlikely sounding PTSD therapy which freed VN Vets from the combat horrors that lived on in their memory.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. Those, haunted by unshakable living memories, suffering countless sleepless nights, or experiencing unexplainable panic reactions that no one understands, need not just exist and simply survive in a distorted reality where the past is still present. Too many times those who just don't get it urge you to "just get over it." Puzzled friends and family can become exhausted when all of their efforts to help fail to make enough of a difference. Frustration can grow into blaming anger, which just adds more layers of misery and self-recrimination.

Areas of focus in therapy may include symptoms of depression, chronic worry, trauma , relationship issues, transitional stress, and adjustment problems.
Life’s challenges often feel overwhelming and prevent us from focusing on the areas of life that we value most. Feelings of worry, fatigue, and emotional disconnection can take the place of joy and meaning. In therapy you can expect to better understand the emotional challenges that keep you stuck, and collaborate on a personalized plan for addressing these challenges. We will carefully consider the strengths and abilities that have allowed you to persevere through difficult times in the past, and work to optimize how these strengths can help you move forward.

Issues I commonly work with include: trauma , abuse, attachment, anxiety, depression, behavior problems, ADHD, divorce, parenting struggles, anger, grief/loss, and adjustment issues.
Children often do not have the words to express what they are feeling or thinking. Traditional talk therapy alone is rarely successful in helping children process difficult life situations. I (Stacy Johnson, owner of Lawrence Play Therapy) can work with your child and family to bring healing. Play therapy involves children sharing their feelings and working through problems using play rather than just talking. The toys are the child's words and play is the child's language. I specialize in therapy with children ages 2 - 12. I also incorporate family therapy, Theraplay, and EMDR when appropriate.

My name is Mandi and I make help accessible by offering virtual trauma therapy to adults who desire relief from trauma symptoms.
To the person who is tired of feeling stuck- I see you. You've given therapy your best and nothing seems to help. "That thing that happened to you" continues to haunt you with overpowering force. You want to find freedom and get on with your life, but you're skeptical if that is even possible. What you have experienced doesn't need to steal from your present any longer.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
