Global Professional are citizens of the world. Their life has been personally transformed by powerful experiences of cultural exchange. Many of our clients have shared that it was during their first experience of living abroad and learning a new language that they felt free of being themselves. They found their voice and a deep sense of belonging. 

Mission-Driven, global professionals have their eyes set on the most vulnerable communities in the world. They make the commitment everyday to show up at work and to put their intellectual gifts at the service of: climate change, women and girls who fight against gender violence, quality early childhood education, bringing better access roads to rural communities in third-world countries, supporting healing in post-conflict processes,  reproductive rights, racial inequalities, brining country leaders together to make the world a safe place!

 

Why Work with Us?

We know there are lots of options out there when it comes down to choosing a therapist. Each of the clinicians working at CEPS is a well-rounded generalist clinician. This means that we are trained and skilled at working with the most common concerns that bring people to seek the help of a psychotherapist:

  • Grief and loss
  • Symptoms of depression and/or anxiety
  • Trauma (including relational, attachment, and work-related trauma)
  • Interpersonal difficulties 
  • Difficulty with adjustment related to life transitions and changes (separation and divorce, becoming a parent, immigrating to the U.S., reverse culture-shock).
  • Issues related to identity (race, gender, immigration, self-concept, self-esteem).

Each clinician in our team brings a unique way to work with clients, our general approach to therapy is:

  • Trauma-Informed: We believe that the problems our clients experience are the result of their best efforts to cope with events or relationships that have been overwhelming at some point in their lives. In order to heal, therapist and clients need to partner in doing therapy work that is meaningful, challenging, growth promoting, while at the same time keeping the work at an optimal level of comfort. 
  • Emotion-Focused/Experiential: We believe that emotions have a fundamental role in sickness and health. Learning to face our feelings instead of avoiding them is at the root of healing from psychological suffering. We are also big proponents of the importance of working with the body and the brain as a unit so that our clients can really move forward towards their goals. Our therapists are trained to incorporate body-centered modalities such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) in their work with clients.
