Focusing on treating trauma and its effects on you and your family

Ray Broderick, a licensed psychotherapist who focuses on treating trauma and its effects on you and your family.

As a police officer I worked for more than four decades first as a uniformed officer, then as a detective and as a DA’s investigator. From 1995 to 2009 I was a forensic interviewer of child abuse victims. During those years I talked with over 5000 children who were victims of sexual and physical abuse. I know from experience that sometimes events that appear minor trigger responses that seem disproportionate.

Sudden traumatic events or prolonged exposure to stressful events can affect your physical and emotional balance. I believe I can talk and work with you and the people who care about you not simply because I have “been there...done that,” but because I understand that your "been there and done that” problems are unique. My belief is that by working together you will construct solutions which are also unique.

The price of helping others should not come at the cost of hurting yourself and the people you love

My Approach - Solution Focused Brief Therapy:

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a process that helps people change by constructing solutions rather than dwelling on problems. Together we identify elements of the solution, which are usually already present in your life. You learn to build on these elements, which form the basis for ongoing change. Rather than searching for the causes of the problem, the focus is on defining the changes and making them a reality.

The two key therapeutic issues are:

How you want your life to be different What it will take to make that happen

It is important that you and I develop a set of specific, detailed goals. These goals drive the therapy process and keep it focused and efficient. There is not an artificial limit to the number of sessions but my aim is to provide you with the most effective treatment in the most efficient way possible so that you can achieve your goals and get on with your life.
