Trauma Therapists

Please Note:
A therapist being listed, here, does not imply an endorsement by Survivors Empowered.
These are not recommendations. They are provided for informational use only.

If you have never had therapy before, do not feel like you must stick with the very first therapist you meet with. Often, it may take several tries to find a therapist that is the best fit for you.  There is no "right" or "wrong" therapist. And there is certainly nothing wrong with you, if you find you don't connect with a particular therapist. Just like finding friends, there will be some you click with and others you don't. After all… therapists are human, too!
