🌟 LaDaiju J. Velez, LCSW 🌟
Compassionate Therapist | Healing Guide | Neurodiversity Advocate

Hello and welcome! I’m LaDaiju, a dedicated Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a heart full of warmth and compassion. My mission is to walk alongside you on your journey to healing and growth, offering a safe and supportive space where you can feel heard and understood.

I specialize in serving diverse individuals and families facing a range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, ADHD, neurodiversity, childhood trauma, perinatal support, grief, eating disorders, domestic violence, military families, and first responders. Whether you’re a child, adult, or part of a family unit, know that you’re not alone.

My approach to therapy is gentle, client-centered, and strengths-based, drawing from evidence-based modalities such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I tailor my approach to meet your unique needs and preferences, fostering resilience and growth.

Beyond therapy, I’m passionate about connecting with people from all walks of life and exploring different cultures. I believe that every person’s story is valuable and deserves to be heard. Through my own experiences and cultural competence, I strive to create a truly inclusive and empowering therapeutic environment.

So, when you’re ready to take the first step towards healing and empowerment, I’m here to support you every step of the way. Let’s embark on this journey together, towards a brighter and more fulfilling future.
