Dr. Elizabeth Salick
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice for over 15 years. I work at the intersection of trauma and postpartum disorders, specializing in psychotherapy for women who have experienced trauma and are struggling with postpartum disorders. My therapeutic approach is integrative, but most aligned with Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). This is a structured, evidence-based therapy that is highly effective for postpartum disorders.
IPT focuses on improving social support, resolving grief and loss, adjusting to major life transitions, and resolving interpersonal disputes that contribute to depression and anxiety. To address these we will focus on your patterns of support seeking, communication, and relationship patterns. I also integrate CBT and DBT techniques to help clients identify and modify their core beliefs and begin to choose new behaviors.
I practice trauma-informed care and have extensive training and certification in trauma treatment. I believe it is important to address trauma individually, rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach. I integrate aspects of somatic psychotherapy, CBT, and relational models. Because trauma is held in both the mind and body, many clients find it helpful to build a toolbox for self-regulation using different methods. Each of us holds unique resources for dealing with stress and adversity, and I encourage clients to tap into their own strengths and develop greater resilience. I hope to help clients move from trauma toward a life of meaning and purpose.
In my personal time I enjoy spending time with my family, nature, my dogs, woodworking and art.
