Short Business Description:
I am a psychotherapist specializing in helping adults age 18 and up with chronic pain and trauma. I also have a special interest in helping neurodivergent/autistic adults and parents/caregivers of neurodivergent/autistic kids.
Long Business Description:

When traumatic events lead to pain, it can be especially difficult to resolve that pain without processing the incident that caused it. Even if there was not a specific trigger, chronic pain often brings with it grief, anxiety, depression, and anger that all exacerbate the impact of that pain.

I specialize in helping people whose stress and trauma affects their chronic pain learn how to effectively process emotions and past trauma in order to reduce pain and emotional distress.

I do this using techniques with proven effectiveness treating chronic pain and trauma, including clinical hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Prolonged Exposure therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Additionally, as a mom of three autistic kids and someone who identifies as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), I also understand how living in a world that is not set up for you can set the stage for anxiety and trauma that often finds itself playing out in the form of physical issues. I help adults learn to navigate their own needs as neurodivergent individuals and heal from trauma that has occurred, at least in part, by living in a world that does not respect and honor their differences.

I conduct all sessions via telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in ordinary times I see people in person in my office in St. Paul and via telehealth throughout Minnesota. The easiest way to begin working with me is to go to my website, www.erinbdlicsw.com, and reserve a time for a free 15-minute phone consultation.

Now for my qualifications… I have been in practice for over 10 years. I have the following degrees: Master of Social Work from University of St. Thomas/St. Catherine’s University School of Social Work; Master of Arts from Yale University; Bachelor of Arts from Grinnell College.

I hold the following certifications: Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy; Certified in Clinical Hypnosis by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis; Certified in Prolonged Exposure Therapy by the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety.

I have given presentations on chronic pain and trauma at the Autism Society of Minnesota annual conference, National Association of Social Workers Minnesota State Conference, HealthEast Spine Symposium, and the Minnesota Holistic Medicine Group.

I look forward to hearing from you!
