Elizabeth Salick, Psy.D, PMH-C
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 women who have experienced trauma and are struggling with postpartum depression. My therapeutic approach is integrative, but I am most aligned with Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). This is a structured, evidence-based therapy that is highly effective for postpartum disorders. I am certified in advanced training in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT).
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 interpersonal dynamics. I also integrate CBT and DBT techniques to help clients change maladaptive beliefs and change behaviors.
I approach all clients with trauma-informed care and have extensive training in trauma treatment. I believe it is important to address trauma individually, rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach. 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. From a growth perspective, each of us holds unique resources for dealing with stress and adversity, and I encourage clients tap into their own strengths. I hope to help clients move from trauma toward a new sense of meaning and purpose.
