Paula Porter, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 25 years of experience.  I work with adults, providing individual and couples counseling. My experience in inpatient and outpatient settings has allowed me to be comfortable working with many issues including depression, anxiety, relationships, stress management, gender identity, addiction, codependency and trauma related concerns.

I believe that each person is unique and capable of change. While I individualize my approach with each client, I begin with a foundation of respect for who they are and what their goals might be in therapy.  I want therapy to be a collaborative process while helping individuals recognize their strengths.

My work in addiction includes early intervention to long term recovery issues and involves both the individuals and their families. Another area of great interest to me is in working with survivors of trauma where I am able to utilize EMDR techniques. Additionally, l am experienced in working with LGBTQ+ individuals and couples.

I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
