Bonnie Miller Ladds is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Divorce Coach who works with adults across the lifespan. With over 30 years experience, Bonnie specializes with individuals suffering with anxiety, depression, trauma, parenting, and sex addiction. Many of her clients experience emotional overwhelm by their individual struggles and difficulty in their relationships. Bonnie is particularly sensitive to clients facing moments of transition, particularly in thinking about separation/divorce, during divorce, and post-divorce.
Bonnie is focused on ensuring that her clients see real progress: her style is interactive, non-judgmental, and warm. As a trauma-informed, psycho-dynamically oriented therapist, Bonnie is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.
Therapy sessions with Bonnie integrate both insight-oriented and skills-based approaches. She gently challenges clients to explore the root cause of their symptoms, gaining new awareness into their emotional and relationship patterns. At the same time, she focuses on practical strategies, to help clients feel better in the here and now.
Bonnie’s first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and respected as a partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy a core component of your self-care calendar.
