Chanita Cassell MSW

Clinical Social Worker, Marital and Family Therapist

ABOUT

As a therapist, I provide a safe and accepting place for clients to explore various areas in their lives, while maintaining clear direction and remaining goal-oriented. I strongly believe that not only is it important to feel validation and empathy from me (which my clients certainly experience!), but also that a client should see and feel tangible progress through the work done together.

I have worked extensively with adolescent girls for close to a decade. With my trainings in psychology, life coaching, narrative therapy, and social work, I aim to take an eclectic approach in working with clients. Although I primarily operate from an insight-based model, I reach into my toolbox for various other, directive approaches (such as CBT and DBT) when necessary.

I specialize in treating issues surrounding adolescent girls, such as depression, struggles with food, past trauma, and self-esteem, involving parents and the family in a supportive way. I also enjoy working with single women who are experiencing difficulties in dating for marriage, helping them to identify their blocks and providing greater insight. Finally, I have helped women with the transition to married life and the myriad challenges that may arise therein, including healthy communication with a spouse, and struggles with infertility, miscarriages, and stillbirths.

I work collaboratively, and view you, the client, as an expert on your own life. I would be honored to join you in your process of self-discovery, as I navigate our journey with sensitivity and care.
