I am a trauma based therapist licensed in Mississippi with over 12 years of experience working drug and alcohol addiction and child welfare. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I specialize in assisting teens with trauma based behaviors, as well as parents struggling with child behaviors.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and trauma based therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dawn VanBuskirk. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
I had not been able to learn to talk to myself more kindly and feel okay about slowing down until I started here. Faithful Counseling is my top recommendation.
Dawn understands the dynamics I face and provided a variety of meaningful coping skills.
