Licensed Clinical Social Workers are valuable as they approach your therapy with a sense of community, family, and self. Our social workers are well-trained in trauma therapy and bring their own expertise and knowledge to your therapy session. They are required to have training from an accredited university, pass the jurisprudence and clinical licensing exams, and complete 3000 hours of internship prior to becoming licensed. Our LCSWs take continuing education to the next level; not only obtaining training at WellMind, but also seeking out their own areas of interest such as EMDR therapy, DBT, Gottman Couples therapy, Ego-State therapy, and becoming more informed treating dissociation.
