About: Laura Kietell, MSW, LCSW

“As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have experience in both direct and indirect service with high risk populations.  My work includes individual therapy, group therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, case management, intakes, family assessments, therapeutic treatment and positive behavior support plans, supervision and program development, various report writing and staff development along with initiating, assisting and analyzing research-based projects.

I have a high interest in working with adults who find themselves struggling with issues of anxiety, relationships, self esteem and loneliness. I enjoy working with adolescents and college students through geriatric populations. I also have experience in working with adults who have mild intellectual disabilities.

My philosophy is to assist clients as their guide, not their leader. This is their personal journey, and I am assisting them in their behavioral choices, not make them for them. I believe in the healing nature of animals and in nature. I also believe that what suits each client is individual to them. What works for one may not work for another. That is part of the adventure of therapy, discovering what works for each individual client, from evidence based practices.
