Y. Mimi Ryans LCSW-C, RPT-S, CCPT, is the Owner and lead therapist at Lighthouse Center for Therapy & Play. For the past decade, she has provided quality mental health services to children and families either experiencing mental health crises or those with specific mental health needs. In the last few years, it has become more evident to her that the focus on trauma when addressing children’s mental health needs is imperative to their healing and completing their treatment. It’s important to explore not only the presentation, but the “why” behind it. She is a fully licensed Social Worker in the District of Columbia, and the states of Maryland, Florida and Georgia. Ms. Ryans’ passion in working with children and adults that have experienced trauma has been one of the most rewarding aspects of her work. In 2014, Ms. Ryans chose to open an insurance-based private group practice in Columbia, Maryland has successfully operated that practice since. Most recently, Ms. Ryans’ interests are in working with high conflict divorce and custody cases to assist the adult parties with identifying what’s in the best interest of the children/children in their lives.
