About Laureen DiMattia
Let me help you get to know me better!
My clinical journey began during my studies at Pennsylvania State University (We Are!) in Psychology and Sociology. From there, I earned my Masters of Social Work from Marywood University and soon after founded my own outpatient therapy practice, Seasons of Strength.
As a therapist and Licensed Social Worker, my mission is to provide you with excellent therapeutic care as you reach your wellness goals. As a clinician, I employ therapy techniques from strongly supported evidence-based methods, such as Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Additionally, I am trained in Eco-Systemic Family Therapy (ESFT), which helps me understand your life story in a systemic context.
My specialization is EMDR therapy (click here to learn more). EMDR is an approach that addresses the physiological storage of memory and how it forms experiences. Change occurs when the links to those memories are transformed. I integrate EMDR therapy into many aspects of my work to help people address painful, unhelpful memories that hold them back from a life worth living.
I’ve helped people from all over the state overcome emotional difficulties and life challenges, such as:
- Anxiety and stress
- Divorce, separation, or breakup
- Trauma and PTSD
- Eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, etc.)
- Relationship problems
- Hopelessness and helplessness
- Loneliness and isolation
- And much more
No matter how difficult things might seem, no matter how long you’ve struggled, I can help. I founded Seasons of Strength to provide compassionate, effective, evidence-based psychotherapy for adults, couples, and families from Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. As an independent private practice clinician, I offer an individually tailored therapy experience designed to help you or your loved one reach your goals and achieve wellness.
