Ty Little, LCSW-R, strongly believes in the power of utilizing the dynamics of relationships to facilitate the development of our natural healing abilities. Whether it includes groups of individuals, extended family and/or friends, families and children, partners, or simply the psychotherapist-client relationship, these bonds provide the foundations for change that is the key to the psycho-therapeutic process. Over the years, Ty has been developing a specialty in the area of trauma-healing. He has completed advanced workshops with Daniel Hughes, Ph.D. in the area of Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), and is currently in the process of becoming a certified Somatic Experiencing (SE) Practitioner. Ty has been closely associated with the New York State Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (NYSATSA) and has developed and facilitated groups for individuals with sexual addiction. He has also worked closely with individuals who have been victims of sexually abusive behavior. He has worked will all conditions of mental health including disorders of mood, anxiety, psychosis, impulse-control, personality, substance-related, childhood, eating, sleep, and adjustment.
