Dawn Priore is known as a health care partner.. If you are working with other health care providers and grant her permission she will collaborate on care. Mental health treatment is not within a vacuum, you are a whole person.  Many patients find themselves grappling with mental health issues and often do not realize there are other factors which may be contributing to the symptoms. Unidentified physiological health issues can present as mental health disorders.

How does trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, addiction impact the mind and body? 

Living in what we term ‘trauma time’ prevents individuals from fully processing current life experiences, hindering their ability to feel, function, and manage your entire life. There is a body-mind connection..

The good news is that I can assist you. Throughout my career as a professional therapist, I’ve worked with thousands of people who have reported significant and lasting improvements in their ability to feel and function. Together, we can work towards positive change and a more fulfilling life.

Let’s work together to achieve the lasting results you’re seeking. Reach out to me for more details on what sets my practice apart.

What can you anticipate during our meeting?

Firstly, we'll conduct an initial evaluation. This involves scheduling a session to talk about your goals, where I gather information about your current symptoms and personal history. This comprehensive assessment, often referred to as a "biopsychosocial," allows us to gain a holistic understanding of your situation.

Following this, we collaborate on developing a personalized treatment plan designed to help you in reaching your goals.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

is a widely recognized and effective form of treatment that focuses on exploring a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

The therapist works with the patient to identify unhelpful thoughts to promote a neutral or positive perspective resulting in less disturbance. 

CBT is research proven therapy that has widespread applications to address a variety of issues.

Depression + CBT

When dealing with depressive disorder, often just called depression, it's important to understand that this is more than a passing bout of sadness. If left unchecked, depression can interfere with everyday functioning and lead to grave consequences. In my practice, I utilize CBT therapy as a vital tool in combating depression, helping my patients learn to recognize and alter thought patterns leading to depressive symptoms. This approach promotes healthier behaviors and emotional responses and helps manage life crises, physical illnesses, and other triggers of depression.
