Dr. Beda Bjorn, MS, LMHC, has been in practice for six years in the clinical field. She has received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida, Master’s of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Capella University. Dr. Bjorn specializes in treating trauma-PTSD, depression, and anxiety disorders by integrating trauma-focused treatment, cognitive-behavioral models,  dialectical behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, and client-centered humanistic approaches to therapy.

There are times when we may feel “stuck,” which can be a struggling experience. My passion is to support clients to develop healthier and satisfying lifestyles by using strategies that help them get “unstuck.”

My mission for optimal results includes collaborating with my clients to tailor a treatment designed to address their needs. While trauma-focused treatment is my specialization, I am prepared  to manage anxiety, depression, gender identity, sexual orientation, and sexual wellness, among  other areas of concern. I recently completed my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and  Supervision (CES), advancing my specialization in clinical skills training, research, ethics, advocacy, and social leadership, pedagogy, and clinical supervision.
