Constance Mccashin, MA, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in West Newton
I have a concentration of clients among college age students, and young adults. I specialize in eating disorders, and related issues. I also have a strong background in the performing arts, and see a significant number of creative clients. For twelve years I worked in a college counseling center. This has afforded me the opportunity to work with students who struggle with the concerns of people in their late teens, early twenties: depression; anxiety; ADD; OCD; substance abuse (as well as the more common issues surrounding living away from home, roommates, academic rigor, awaking sexual identity, etc.)
As a former working actress, I have helped clients in the creative arts: acting; dance; voice; visual arts; writing. The combination of a strong arts background, and well developed therapeutic skills, has resulted in an unusual and successful clinical approach,
I have a unique perspective, having worked in the entertainment business for almost thirty years. I see both the performing side of the equation, and the business side of the work. This insight is a valuable tool when working with artists who are struggling to grow in their work.
