Licensed Independent Social Worker
Hi, I am Kassia, welcome to my bio. Thank you for sharing your space with me. I believe creating a protective, safe and non-judgmental space for growth and healing by implementing trust, empathy and respect to who you are.
My approach is holistic focusing on mind, body, and heart. I have distinctive abilities in helping empower others to integrate lifestyle changes into their healing journey. I am experienced working with trauma, grief and bereavement, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, relationship barriers, and communication issues.
Connection is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled. Your story – your strengths, pain and collection of experiences are unique to you. I honor the journey you have endured to get here and welcome you to your healthy adventure. We are survivors together.
I received my Master of Social Work from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. There is no one size fit all approach to therapy. I am trained in modalities that include Cognitive Behavior therapy, Solution Focused and Problem-Solving approaches. My specific additional training in Interventions include: Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Trauma Informed, Mindfulness, and EMDR. My strength-based approaches also integrate theories such psychodynamic and Rational Choice.
My favorite saying says, “Life is not waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain”. So let’s dance!
Reach out today, I look forward to being a part of the magical space that is the new you.
