Grazyna Petersen, LCSW, CADC
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
My special interest is depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, addictions, immigration, acculturation, and adjustment.
The stress from everyday life can be overwhelming for people of any age, and it can come from a surprising number of sources. Prolonged stress can lead to depression and anxiety, and we may not be sure where it’s coming from or what to do about it. If you are feeling hesitant about starting therapy, know that asking for help is a sign of strength and not weakness.
Cognitive-behavioral Therapy or CBT focuses on recognizing and challenging distressing thought processes and behaviors, replacing them with more realistic and positive ones to elevate depression and anxiety. The Psychodynamic approach examines the deeper sources of these behaviors. Mindfulness means to observe and name thoughts, feelings, sensations in the body in an objective, nonjudgmental manner. In my work with clients, I use a variety of techniques that derive from CBT, Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness.
In addition, as a Certified Addictions Counselor, I offer therapeutic services to those struggling with addictions or needing support in maintaining sobriety.
