Therapist in California Desiree Sayre, LCSW

Desiree Sayre, LCSW

I have experience in various settings as a psychotherapist, most recently as a federal contractor for the Veteran Affairs. My background includes a number of years of experience working with families, couples and individuals ranging from 4 to 94 years old. I have provided therapy to individuals with PTSD, childhood trauma, anxieties, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, grief and loss, relationship conflict, parenting issues, career and work stress, ADHD, anger, self-esteem, phase of life transitions and various other areas relating to mental health. I have a background with victims of trauma including childhood trauma, military trauma, sexual trauma and various other traumas. I am EMDR trained by EMDRIA – the international association for trauma. Trauma continues to be my specialty. This includes not only Big T trauma but also Little T trauma such as negative past experiences from childhood, adolescence or adulthood that have left patients with low self-worth. Many anxious and depressive symptoms are the result of these past traumas.
I integrate the latest evidence-based knowledge from neuroscience into my interventions. I provide an environment of understanding, compassion and non-judgment using a strength-based, integrative, holistic, and culturally sensitive approach. My psychotherapy style is warm and interactive. I have learned over the years that more important than the intervention used during psychotherapy is the relationship. I applaud you for making this first step and look forward to helping you during this particular time in your life including: Managing challenging symptoms such as anxiety, depression or anger; improving a relationship with your partner or your children; acquiring improved parenting skills; processing past emotional pain or managing current physical pain; obtaining tools for a new challenging phase or simply creating a life worth living.
