My name is LaDeana Artis and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have 21 years of experience in the field of mental health and 11 of those years, I have worked as a therapist in an Outpatient setting. Over the course of my career, I have been fortunate to work with many different populations of individuals and families present with a myriad of symptoms, stressors, and challenging life situations. My areas of specialization are working with individuals who have experienced trauma/abuse/neglect, abandonment/attachment issues, personality disorders, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, family conflict, perinatal mental health challenges, as well as relationship/marital concerns.
When working with couples, I have found that developing healthy boundaries, maintaining a sense of autonomy, learning to recognize/acknowledge how their individual experiences over the course of their lives may be contributing to unhealthy patterns in their relationship, taking responsibility for their own stuff, unconditional acceptance, forgiveness, and the art of effective communication are crucial to learning to experience one another differently.
I believe in meeting people where they are and therefore my approach tends to be more person-centered/humanistic in nature, as it would depend on the presenting/identified need of the individual, couple, or family.
I tend to combine different treatment modalities, including, but not limited to Cognitive behavior therapy, Emotionally focused therapy , Narrative Therapy, Trauma Informed Care, developing interventions that may best meet the needs of the couple.
The first step toward healing and positive change is identifying that there is something that one would like to improve or change about themselves. It takes strength and a sense of humility to allow yourself to be vulnerable and open enough to take that journey inward. If you are ready to do the work...ready for a journey of introspection...ready to carve out a path toward positive change...then this is the right place for you.
I look forward to working with you.
