Outpatient Mental Health Practitioner
More About Libby Davison
I am passionate about working with individuals navigating depression, anxiety, PTSD, identity issues, coping skills, and childhood trauma, including individuals who identify with al-anon, al-ateen, and adult children of alcoholics (ACoA). I am passionate about human issues such as struggles with self-image, silencing the self/voice, and the complexities of moving in, moving out, and navigating within relationships. I have experience and a passion working with individuals who are navigating the impact of trauma. Depending on need and focus of the client, I will bring in knowledge from several different therapy models including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). My interests lie within interpersonal processes and how their is wisdom in our emotions. I utilize mindfulness and meditation practices to aid in this connection and acceptance with the self as well. I enjoy working with adolescents and adults.
My trauma informed clinical approach is relational and person-centered in nature. I honor the importance of meaning making in therapy and see the task of therapy as facilitating fuller movement into connection and relationship with self and others. I believe there is healing in connection and that embracing vulnerability in a safe place fosters this connection and growth. I strive to bring authenticity, genuineness, and mutual empathy into the therapeutic relationship and to honor the fact that the process of counseling takes great courage.
I enjoy hiking, yoga, crocheting, reading, spending time with family, and laughing with good friends. I also like hanging out with my cat, Hank.
