Deborah Sweet, Psy.D.
Founder and Director of the Trauma Counseling Center of Los Angeles
To reduce or clear trauma, a variety of modalities are needed. Trauma lives in the body, as well as the mind. Classic talk therapy by itself does not remove the somatic aspects of the trauma such as an exaggerated startle response. In other words, symptoms of trauma and traumatic memories cannot be conquered with only the mind.
Dr. Sweet, Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY23759) started this center to help people find the best counseling possible to reduce the effects of trauma on their lives. She has carefully chosen the associates that work at TCCLA to create the best possible experience for you as you work through what you are dealing with whether it is in the past or present.
