About

Thank you for visiting my page! I am a big-hearted, passionate, down-to-earth therapist who genuinely believes in the skills that I teach. I love my career because I have the privilege to support you on your journey through this crazy game of life...what an honor! My therapy style weaves a unique combination of skill-building, support, humor, and firmness to help you snap out of simply "existing" in order to start truly living again. Let me help you get out of your suffering so you can begin to build a life worth living!
I specialize in the treatment of adults and families affected by trauma, mood and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, and related issues. My main treatment modalities are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), but I have also received specialized training in multiple other evidence-based treatment options.
I have over 16 years of experience providing individual and group therapy to veterans through the Veterans Administration. My work specializes in mood and adjustment issues that veterans and their loved ones typically encounter. In my private practice, I enjoy working with clients ranging in age from early adolescence to late-adulthood.

Laurie Shamamy's Groups

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Group

Do you get hooked by unwanted thoughts and feelings? Do you feel like your mind is your worst enemy? Do you feel stuck in your suffering? If so, then this ACT skills group may be the right fit to help you get out of your mind and back into the life you value. At the start of your treatment, I provide a binder with articles, worksheets, and other skill-building materials to supplement this class. ACT is an evidence-based modality for the treatment of depression, anxiety, OCD, chronic pain, and psychosis.

More about this group

DBT skills (Adult & Adolescent groups available!)

Adult and adolescent (age 14-20) groups are available on Saturdays! DBT is a great fit for clients who feel emotions strongly, who have difficulty regulating these strong emotions, and who want to learn how to better understand their emotions so they can begin to build a life worth living. These 90-minute DBT skills groups meets on a weekly basis. The group format is comprised of 4 modules: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Distress Tolerance. New members are welcome to begin at the start of each new module so admission is rolling. Space is available!
