My name is Dr. LaToya K. Williams and I have been working as a mental health professional for the past 18 years. As a Forensic Psychologist, I have been hired by judges who want to gain an understanding of my client's clinical concerns before making a decision about a civil or criminal sanction. I work with the perpetrators of sex offenses (among other types of violent crimes). I also work with the victims of said crimes. Many people have dealt with difficult situations (such as abuse and trauma), and many want the therapeutic help to overcome these challenges.

I employ Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ) Techniques, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Art Therapy in my treatment of clients.
We all have strengths and weaknesses. In my practice, I like to uncover and nurture the many strengths that my clients possess. I encourage my clients to use these strengths to their advantage and to continually uncover additional strengths and resilience. Within my therapeutic approach, I use a variety of theories and modalities to assist in understanding and treating clients. I use existential and psychoanalytic theories which consider a person’s childhood experiences, attachments, and the deeper question of creating meaning in life.

I utilize a combination of Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, DBT , Acceptance Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Practices to help reduce the symptoms of trauma, anxiety, and depression that complicate and contribute to Substance Use Disorders.
Many people with substance use issues also suffer from trauma. Feelings of anxiety, fear, anger, grief, depression, loneliness, feeling judged, and misunderstood are very normal. You may not trust the world around you and may not know how to cope with symptoms of trauma alone and will instead seek to numb your emotional turmoil. Both are lonely and isolating issues. Substance use is an outward manifestation of your pain and with supportive trauma and substance use counseling combined, your addiction can be treated as well as the underline symptoms that cause the need to numb your emotions and avoid your reality.

I am trauma informed and knowledgeable in both CBT and DBT , including specific evidence based interventions for OCD, Anxiety, Depression as well as self-harm and suicidality.
I take a person-centered, strengths-based approach to meet clients where they are and address what they feel is impacting their lives the most. I believe building a strong relationship is the foundation of therapy. I think it is important to maintain a non-judgmental stance and instead look through a lens of curiosity throughout life, and especially in therapy. The thing I love most about being a therapist is watching my clients grow and having the opportunity to be part of their journey. I pride myself on the passion I have for what I do, and how that translates into my ability to advocate for my clients.

My approach is empathic, solution-focused, strength-based and encompasses principles of cognitive-behavioral (CBT) and dialectical -behavioral ( DBT ) methodologies.
It can be difficult to ask for help when life gets overwhelming and you believe you should be able to handle everything on your own. Everyone needs support at times. Let's work together to identify and change unhealthy patterns in your life. My goal is to provide a judgement-free space for you to share your unique strengths and challenges. Most clients benefit from simply being heard and validated without judgement. Successful clients are open to trying something different. Keep an open mind and consider new approaches to coping and problem resolution and you'll experience change.

Dialectical (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Milwaukee or for a Milwaukee DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Milwaukee and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
