Trauma and PTSD therapists in Santa Clarita, California CA
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Through my years working at different mental health agencies within Los Angeles County and Orange County, trauma has been one of the most common issues clients have talked to me about. Trauma can influence the way somebody thinks or feels about themselves and the world around them. These incredibly stressful events often changes our behavior and impacts our ability to function. I am trained and certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy, and use a variety of other forms of evidence-based treatment as well. A quick note about trauma-- these events don't have to be dramatically disturbing to have an impact on your mental health. Feel free to read up on this article, which explains the rising understanding about the wide spectrum of traumatic experiences: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/trauma-and-hope/201703/different-types-trauma-small-t-versus-large-t

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
I am an EMDR trauma therapist with over 11 years experience working with clients with PTSD symptoms. I am knowledgable in different treatment methods to approach and work with clients who have experienced either complex childhood trauma or a person who has had a recent traumatic event, such as a car accident, abuse or assault. I utilize different approaches depending on the client's needs, level of distress and ability to regulate emotions. I am a believer in mind-body therapy techniques to promote healing and emotions regulation.

And the same is true for trauma experienced in adulthood. Seeing clients trough a trauma focused lens allows me to help guide them along the healing path. Traumatized individuals often have a overly active limbic system and are constantly in survival mode which is exhausting and usually interferes with sleep.
