Aline-Vanya Guillaume, LCSW-QS, CCTP
I believe many adults are living an unfulfilled life due to unprocessed traumatic events that took place in their past. Present hardships may also encourage poor decision making which can result in regrets. I help guide individuals during their toughest seasons, and remind them that hope still lives. I work with churches to help normalize the conversation about the bible and mental health. In addition to adults, I am experienced in helping adolescents cope and process traumatic events through evidence based techniques such as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. These events may include, but are not limited to rape, abandonment, abuse, divorced parents, and human trafficking.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, with years of experience in providing services to hundreds of individuals in the areas of trauma, crisis intervention, depression, anxiety, suicide ideations, post-traumatic stress disorder and more. These issues can be a result of one or multiple life events. I also specializes in treating individuals who have experienced panic attacks, infertility and grief/loss. It is important to me that my clients are comforted, with the fact that they are not alone, and help is available. My treatment orientations are cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (for adolescents), motivational interviewing and solution focused therapy. All treatment modalities are determined on a case by case basis.
