Dr. Tramaine Presley is a graduate from Wright State University School of Professional Psychology in Dayton, Ohio, where she received her doctorate degree in clinical psychology (Psy.D). She is a dual state (Illinois and Indiana) licensed clinical professional counselor. Her graduate training prepared her to work across populations; thus, she has had the privilege to work with children, adults, and families across a variety of clinical settings-private practice, community mental health, residential, schools, college campus, and hospitals. She has been fortunate to work with clients who exhibited diverse clinical presentation of their symptomology as well as with individuals with intersecting diverse backgrounds. Further, as a clinician, she specializes in systemic therapy by where she values holistic treatment, which allows her to work across systems. This includes partnering with schools, medical providers, and families (immediate and extended family). Lastly, she identifies with an assimilative integrative model in which she grounds herself in systems theory and assimilate practices from other theories, such as multicultural, interpersonal, cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic, narrative, etc.
Due to her unique and intense training in diversity and multiculturalism, Dr. Presley welcomes those from diverse backgrounds. She has a particular passion and commitment to working with individuals from marginalized and underrepresented groups. Her understanding and sensitivity to issues of diversity and its impact on the therapeutic process is a prominent part of her work. Her goal is to offer therapeutic support to a diverse client base regardless of race, age, gender, sex, class, religious/spiritual and/or disability status.
