About My Clients
*No openings currently.* I work with older adolescents, young adults, and individual adults and couples wishing to better understand themselves and their relationships with those around them, and to heal from life’s difficulties in a safe and supportive space. I specialize in grief and childhood trauma as well as life transitions such as graduating from high school, parenting, retirement, and chronic illness or caring for someone with a chronic illness.
My Background and Approach
After working in higher education for twenty years supporting students with physical and mental health challenges as they navigated academia, I returned to school to complete my MSW and become a licensed therapist. I have worked in hospice and bereavement, in an integrated community health clinic, as part of an agency and now in private practice. I have completed specialized training in treating complex trauma, anxiety, depression and grief, and in working with family systems. My approach utilizes a focus on attachment theory, neurobiology/polyvagal theory, mindfulness and somatic work. It is my belief that it is the therapeutic relationship, more than any tip, trick, or toolbox, that promotes healing. *In-person sessions offered Tues & Weds, Telehealth Mon, Thurs & Fri, 7 AM - 3 PM ** In practice with Douglas Stephens, EdD, LICSW, LMFT, BCD, and Bianca Staudt, MSW. https://www.therapyden.com/therapist/bianca-staudt
