"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." I am a compassionate and experienced Clinical Psychologist attending to the emotional and psychological needs of individuals, children, families and couples in a safe and confidential environment. I treat trauma, dissociation, anxiety, depression, anger and relationship issues. I have significant clinical experience treating trauma based disorders as well as dissociative disorders resulting from childhood sexual abuse and/or SRA/mind control.

I also use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing.) This treatment is helpful to those with trauma histories, anxiety/phobias, depression, and more.I am also trained in Dyadic therapy for children with Reactive Attachment Disorder/ Trauma Disorders resulting in disrupted attachments. I offer sand tray therapy for children who have difficulty expressing themselves.

I have published three journal articles on trauma and dissociation. I also write for GEM Magazine offering ideas and suggestions regarding parenting. Remember: "Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it." -Tori Amos.

Laura A Ness's Groups

Adult Trauma and Dissociation

Skills group for coping with trauma and dissociation. Skills include flashback management, containment, mindfulness, grounding techniques and DBT skills. This group is not currently running. Please call and request to be placed on the list for January 2016 group. ALSO: if you have not had individual treatment first for your trauma, I highly recommend that first, as the group can be triggering for certain individuals.
