Aurora Moreno (she, her, hers) graduated with her master’s in social work at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and is currently a provisionally licensed clinical social worker (PCSW) working toward independent licensure for over 2 years at OIC. She is invested in working with individuals of all identities, including gender, sexual, and relationship expansive people. Aurora honors the intrinsic wisdom and capacity for healing in all people, choosing to work alongside clients as a partner in support of their self-authored path. She draws from an integrative approach in support of one’s path to emergence and healing, including relational, psychodynamic, trauma-focused, somatic, narrative, and harm-reduction approaches to psychotherapy. With respect to the ways trauma often lives in the body, Aurora utilizes Brainspotting as a support for clients in accessing facets of healing that can often be difficult to speak to.
Aurora specializes in working alongside:
- Complex trauma, developmental trauma and PTSD
- Burnout and secondary trauma
- Those living with chronic illness
- LGBTQIA+ populations
- Poly and kink practitioners
- Identity exploration or concerns
- Sexuality, sexual concerns, and adjustment
As a provider, Aurora believes in the integration of social justice within an integrative practice in order to provide support for the whole person. This includes recognition and inquiry of the influence of systemic oppression (sexism, racism, etc.) as well as one’s experience of identity, family of origin, relationships, community, and environment within the therapeutic relationship. She is also invested in exploring and addressing barriers to accessing services in order to provide integrative healthcare to all individuals, regardless of race, gender, class, identity, experience, or circumstance.
