Laura Reagan, MSW, LCSW-C, is a psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, blogger, consultant, and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator practicing in the Baltimore, Maryland area.

Laura started her career working with survivors of trauma in a sexual assault crisis center, first as a volunteer in 2002 and later as a full time employee. She and her family relocated to Maryland in 2006, and she began working with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence there prior to grad school. During her first year internship at the University of Maryland School of Social Work she had the opportunity to work with immigrants and refugees who were survivors of torture and war trauma. She continued working with survivors of sexual and physical violence, including child abuse, during her clinical internship and after graduation. She is now in private practice focusing on clients who are survivors of childhood abuse and neglect, and she is fascinated with helping people who work with survivors of trauma to address self care and vicarious traumatization.

My name is Guy Macpherson. I am a husband, father, brother, and a psychologist. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and early psychosis. My passion is raising the awareness of trauma and helping trauma therapists thrive.

I do this by helping trauma clinicians engage more effectively and deeply with their clients by:

  • Sharing trauma information and materials
  • The Trauma Therapist Podcast
  • Trauma Therapist elite

For the last six years I have dedicated myself to the study of trauma psychology, trauma therapy, post-traumatic growth, and most recently, the intersection of trauma and psychosis, specifically the signs of early psychosis.
