Eric Y. W. McKnight, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Providence
I work with adolescents, young adults, adults, couples and families to address the problems that they see holding them from achieving what they want in their life. I specialize in the treatment of mood disorder (bipolar & depression) and anxiety disorders, that stem from phase of life transitions, relationship issues, past traumas, substance abuse, grief/loss, parenting, sexuality/identity issues, and need for social skill improvement.
I work from a strengths-based perspective and believe strongly in working to identifying each person's inherent ability to overcome that which holds them back. I use existential, interpersonal and acceptance based therapeutic approaches to help clients understand and work through their struggles.
