Rhoda Mills Sommer, LCSW, ACSW, BCD, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Sharpsburg
At the core of my work is an essential reverence for what is authentic, what is the soul. Therapy is rediscovering what is authentic by unburying the spirit from others' definitions and recovering one's wholeness. Therapy is the process of learning our self betrayals, discovering our courage to face pain and honestly encountering what is in our heart. My job is to help clients find the key that unlocks their inner strengths to understand themselves and interact more effectively with others. My personal connection with my clients is the essential element of successful therapy for over 35 years.
I believe my specialty is working with people on the pain in their lives, to face it honestly. I'm known for working with adolescents, anxiety, codependency issues & relationships. I teach relationship workshops to other therapists for CEU's at U of Pitt. Twitter & Instagram: @rhodaoncouples
I built my website in 2003, my blog is 3 years old and my podcast "What Healthy Couples Know that You Don't" is 1 1/2yrs.old. I did not create these for marketing but to make the world a better place with tons of free information.
