Dawn VanBuskirk

LCSW

About Me

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!

Written by J.O. on Jul 21, 2022 after therapy with Dawn for 2 months

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.

Work with me!
