Laura Cahill LCSW
General Office Hours
In Eastern Time
Once you have decided to begin your journey with me you will schedule a time for us to meet for our initial session. During this time we will have a chance to get to know each other better and for you to share with me your story and what has brought you to therapy. From there you and I will work together to develop your goals for treatment and discuss how we will work to meet those goals. We will typically spend the first few sessions continuing to develop our therapeutic relationship as this is really what will help drive our work together. As our work continues we will make sure to be aware of progress on those initial goals and look to see if new areas emerge that we need to focus on with the end goal being your successful completion of therapy.
My practice is guided by the biopsychosocial model and an awareness of the interconnected relationship of brain-based responses to psychological functioning or dysfunction with a special concentration on the effects of trauma both in childhood and adulthood related to mental health issues. I am certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and have a particular interest in providing therapeutic interventions that reflect a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) informed practice.
