She worked for twelve years at a residential facility treating substance use disorders and mental health. Her most recent experience is providing therapeutic services in an outpatient mental health setting, working with a diverse spectrum of people and concerns. She has formal training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy but capitalizes on a multiplicity of approaches to assist clients in developing adaptive cognitive appraisals and coping strategies. She works with people who struggle with addiction, loneliness and isolation, self-confidence, codependency, behavioral impulsivity, depression, anxiety, relational issues, and a variety of other concerns that get in the way of living according to one’s true potential. In her free time, Casey participates in a regular yoga practice and is a certified yoga instructor. She also enjoys spending time with her son, two smoosh-faced cats, and traveling to Norway in the summers. She believes that though the stress of living can never truly be uncoupled with the human experience, we can learn to take this challenge on directly to experience a more fulfilling life.
