Hollie Kalkstein, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Hadley
"Your present circumstances do not determine where you go, they merely determine where you start." Feelings of loss, shame, sadness and anxiety often keep us stuck in unhealthy patterns. I have a general practice focusing on the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse and impulse control disorders. Using cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and other coping strategies I guide clients forward, to health, wellness, safety and acceptance.
I have specific training working with clients healing from trauma using 'Progressive Counting'. While this is a newer technique, studies have shown it to have a rate of success equal to or better than EMDR.
I work with adults, adolescents, families and couples in a culturally sensitive way. I meet each person who walks through my door with respect, a caring attitude and the skill to develop a collaborative relationship to attain their therapeutic goals.
