Lorraine Jefferson is a licensed clinical social worker offering behavioral care services to adults in Florida, New Jersey and Tennessee. Lorraine has a wide array of clinical interests, and her expertise includes trauma-PTSD, depression, anxiety, mood disorders and addiction.
Lorraine’s interest in behavioral health care began 20 years ago, after suffering in silence with her own mental and behavioral health issues, she attempted to engage in therapy. Although counseling was unacceptable in her family and culture, she took the brave step to “try it out anyway.” Her hope was to discover the path toward healing and was short-lived due to experiencing cultural insensitivity and judgement. She knew then that what she had experiences was not the ideal therapeutic relationship, so she decided to become the person who would give others what she was unable to receive – compassion, empathy, safety, nonjudgement, care and genuineness.
Lorraine strives to always have a positive affective presence and she prides herself on her reputation for being able to rapidly form a meaningful rapport with her patient.
