Paula Swartz, LCSW

Paula Swartz is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Wisconsin who has been practicing since 2020. She has a Master of Social Work and a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Paula Swartz is a dedicated trauma therapist with a passion for helping individuals reclaim their lives after experiencing traumatic events. With more than three years of direct clinical experience and seven years in the social services field, Paula has witnessed the transformative power of therapy and witnessed the incredible strength and resilience that comes with being a human being. Throughout her career, Paula has worked with adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds who have faced various forms of trauma, such as invalidation, physical or emotional abuse, sexual assault, or interpersonal violence. She has extensive experience in providing systemic support to clients as well as working alongside law enforcement officers navigating vicarious and secondary trauma as they serve and protect our community while carrying the burden of fear of coming forward for support with navigating their experiences as a law enforcement officer. Paula’s therapeutic style thrives from the belief that the healing foundation begins with a genuine, honest, nonjudgmental human connection. She shows up to each therapeutic relationship with much credence that it is an honor to walk alongside you as you share your experiences with her. Paula’s therapeutic approach is integrative, drawing from evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Schema Therapy, Trauma-Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). She tailors her treatment plans to meet the unique needs and goals of each client, fostering a collaborative and empowering therapeutic relationship. Paula firmly believes that every person has the capacity to heal and lead a fulfilling life, irrespective of the trauma they have endured. Her role as a trauma therapist is to guide individuals through their healing journey, providing support, validation, and practical tools to develop resilience and regain control over their lives. Paula wants you to remember that healing is possible, and you are not alone. Outside of work, Paula enjoys spending time with family and friends, curling up with her cat, reading, and watching all things true crime.
