About me

Hi! I am Anthony Motsinger, a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor. I graduated from the University of Louisville with a master's degree in social work and completed doctoral studies in psychology. Since graduation, I have worked various behavioral health roles including service as a Behavioral Sciences Officer in the United States Army earning the rank of Captain. I have a passion for helping marginalized populations including LGBTQ+, those with a substance use disorder, and individuals from low socio-economic households. I am licensed in Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky and certified nationally as a master addiction counselor and tobacco treatment specialist.

My approach is tailored to the individual or couple. No single approach works for everyone. As an LCSW, I believe an individual's environment has the greatest impact on their functioning. In counseling, I'll work to understand all facets of you: your work, home life, relationships, physical health, etc to best offer services to meet your needs. Depending on the amount of time you can commit to counseling, we will consider cognitive-behavioral or solution-focused approaches.

Let's work together!
