Djuna Lauren Osborne is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Roanoke, VA. She works with adult individuals. Many of Djuna’s clients come in to address anxiety, depression, life transitions, work/life balance, and dissatisfaction in relationships. Djuna is particularly passionate about serving medical professionals, entrepreneurs, and other therapists. She also has advanced training in treating symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Djuna is trained in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), in which in a careful and kind way, she pays attention to you, moment by moment to understand how you relate to yourself and to others, what feelings are underneath your anxiety, what activates you and what patterns of relating and behavior cause chronic problems. This approach supports clients to be able to understand themselves better, know what triggers them and why and what to do about it when it happens, how to regulate their anxiety so they can return to their calm centered selves, understand the function of their symptoms such as depression, anxiety, avoidance, passivity, helplessness, aggression, anger outbursts, etc. so that they can intervene on their own behalf and build a happy healthy, existence for themselves.
Djuna's style is active, collaborative, kind, direct, and non-judgmental. Sessions focus on client's wishes and goals for themselves with an emphasis on collaboration of the task.
Djuna received her MSW from the University of South Carolina. She has worked at Frontier Health and Forsyth County Detention Center as a clinician serving clients in mental health and substance abuse crisis. Outside of private practice, she is a former member of Roanoke City Council, loves to cook and host guests, also enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 daughters road tripping and doing anything outside. She conveniently offers telehealth sessions to patients in Virginia and South Carolina.
