Casey Loughran, LCSW #86653
Casey is a individual/family therapist & mentor at Coyote Coast.
Casey believes Therapy is the process of coming to a deeper understanding of ourselves and how we approach the world while contained in the therapeutic relationship. She aims to create a safe, compassionate, and collaborative space to explore why patterns of thinking and interacting have become painful. In her experience, this process leads to improved relationships and communication, greater confidence and enjoyment in life, relief from feeling stuck, strengthened coping skills to manage life stressors, and progress towards one's inherent potential to thrive.
Her clinical approach integrates psychodynamic psychotherapy with trauma-informed, evidenced-based practices (CBT, DBT, ACT, MI), focusing on the therapeutic relationship and the client’s inherent strengths as sources of change. She has a holistic approach that conceptualizes one's challenges in the context of their larger sociocultural environment.
Casey was trained at Smith School for Social Work, and completed a postgraduate fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis. She has extensive experience working with issues related to identity development, trauma, attachment insecurity, relationship instability, emotional dysregulation, low self-esteem, and postpartum depression and anxiety.
