Ryan Graumann, LCMHC, CCTP, CIEC, NCC
Outpatient Psychotherapist in Downtown Raleigh
I truly believe life is a journey that presents us with many opportunities and challenges along the way; however, in a safe and supportive environment, we can find meaning and thrive. My goal is to collaborate, identify, and foster positive coping skills, healthy choices, and meaningful insights that help you honor your most authentic self. I also believe that it is imperative to understand my clients and develop treatment goals from the context of intersectionality and social justice. Everybody has an innate birthright to feel seen, heard & valid.
My particular areas of focus and experience are trauma, eating and body image concerns, gender & sexuality, identity development, and interpersonal effectiveness. I am proudly Queer-Affirming and committed to social justice. My practice is trauma-informed, evidence-based, and guided by Health at Every Size (HAES) and Intuitive Eating models.
My counseling style is integrative and flexible, based on each client's individual needs. I utilize several components of the humanistic, existential, Gestalt, and feminist philosophies and practices that are tailored to the presenting problems of my clients; however, I approach therapy with a cognitive behavioral (CBT) foundation. I have been trained and/or certified in the following: Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST), Contingency Management, Seven Challenges, Triple P: Primary Care Teen, Triple P: Standard Level 4, Triple P: Standard Level 3, Triple P: Standard Level 4 (Group), Cognitive Processing Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT).
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my partner and pets (Murphy & Birdie), streaming various shows/movies, reading, playing video games, decorating, or being outdoors. I would also be remiss if I did not mention the excitement of finding new food places to try with friends and family.
