Hello, my name is Dawn Salveson. My 15 years of social work experience has focused on teens (15+) & adults experiencing life-transitions, identity issues, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I use a mix of therapeutic modalities, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral, Person-centered, Trust Based Relational Intervention, Internal Family Systems, and Motivational Interviewing.
My passion is working with parents and teens doing hard things, experiencing hard places. Sitting in those situations can be lonely and uncomfortable, and our culture says, distract yourself by whatever means possible. In order to heal, you have to sit in the uncomfortable, for a season. Let me sit with you. I provide a nurturing and accepting environment for you to feel safe, leading you to balance, joy, and a sense of peace.
Therapy provides an outlet to express your thoughts and emotions, to increase your awareness, promote your personal growth and strengthen your relationships. I am here to provide gentle, compassionate guidance; empowering & honoring your journey. Are you ready to take the next step? Set up an appointment now. I look forward to hearing from you.
Additional areas of focus: Self esteem, Adoption and Foster Care, Blended Family Issues, Codependency, Communication Problems, Dependent Personality, Divorce and Separation, Forgiveness, Life Purpose, Midlife Crisis, Self-Love, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues
