Lora Wiens is not currently accepting new clients.
We all want to find some way to love ourselves and to engage in meaningful, healthy relationships. These desires can be elusive when we have histories of trauma, neglect, and abuse. Many of my clients have trauma histories in childhood and qualify for diagnoses that originate in trauma, including PTSD, Complex PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, and/or Dissociative Disorders. Trauma that comes from ongoing abuse in childhood impacts many aspects of life, including the way you see yourself, your ability to trust others, and even your ability to move forward toward your goals.
At the Samaritan Center, I see adults, couples, and adolescents for therapy. I specialize in treating relationships issues, anxiety, PTSD, and LGBTQ issues. I completed coursework with the ISSTD and am active in a consultation group to treat adults and adolescents with Dissociative Disorders.
Among other therapeutic modalities, I incorporate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which was designed to give people practical ways to manage intense emotions, negotiate difficult relationships, and stop addictive behaviors. I also offer EMDR and in depth psychodynamic therapy. For more, please visit my website.
