Professional statement

Drea Renzelli is a Licensed Independent Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She currently works with adults experiencing symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and survivors of trauma as well as trauma related to relationships. She has a particular interest in working with those who are survivors of emotional abuse in relationships.

Drea utilizes evidence-based treatment modalities to best fit the needs of her clients. She is certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and is trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy. EMDR and CPT are evidence-based, well-researched treatments for survivors of trauma who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD). EMDR has also been shown to be a beneficial treatment for anxiety, depression, chronic pain and other distressing life experiences.

Drea’s style is collaborative and warm. She is dedicated to providing a therapeutic relationship where her clients feel safe, connected to her, and feel that they can be open in sessions. She tailors therapy to each of her clients to treat their unique needs since therapy is not a one-size-fits-all practice. Drea currently has openings in her practice for EMDR Intensive Sessions for those who want rapid treatment, need help right away, or need a lot of help right away. This is also helpful for individuals who find scheduling weekly sessions challenging.

Drea received her master’s degree in social work in 2005 and has been practicing therapy ever since. Drea strives to be an ally to all those who are suffering. She provides Intensive Trauma Therapy and ongoing, outpatient therapy to adults.


Message to clients

When you’ve gone through a traumatic experience, it’s important to find a therapist who will provide a safe space for you to process your trauma. As a result of surviving a traumatic experience, you may be feeling anxious and/or depressed. You may also be having difficulty in relationships.

Flashbacks, nightmares, and trauma triggers don’t have to rule your life forever. I’ll help you find relief from symptoms of PTSD in a compassionate, collaborative therapy setting. We’ll set goals to empower you and build your confidence. You are not alone on the journey to mental wellness.

Most people experience trauma of some sort, whether it’s trauma with a “big T” or a “little T.” I want to normalize your experience(s) and help you realize that there’s nothing wrong with you. Often people who’ve gone through a traumatic experience deal with anxiety and depression as a result. My goal is for you to find relief from the distressing symptoms that are a result of trauma.
