Hi, my name is Cassie Maxwell (she/her/hers), and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 9 years experience providing creative, client-centered, and strength-based therapy services here in Louisiana. I first want to recognize how big of an accomplishment it is to take your first step in finding someone to speak to. I hope after reading more about myself and my practice, we can take the next steps together in your journey toward reaching your personal goals.
I have experience working with folks from culturally diverse backgrounds, and I am passionate about creating a safe space for my clients to share their stories. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I have personal as well as clinical experience in helping folks navigate LGBTQ+ related issues. It is my priority to provide non-judgemental, multi-cultural, and trauma-informed treatment for those who are navigating a road that is more difficult than what many others experience.
I also have experience working with clients to manage a wide variety of mental health and behavioral health diagnoses, including but not limited to Depression, Anxiety, Anger Management, Grief and Loss, ADHD, PTSD, and Bipolar. If you do not resonate with one of these I have listed, reach out to me and we can discuss if I would be the best therapist for you. I am here to help.
If you decide to work with me, you can choose to have Video sessions, Phone sessions, and/or Live Chat sessions. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to speak with you and help you during what may be a difficult time in your life. Thank you!

I currently do not work with those experiencing active mental health crises, but I want you to be safe and receive the services you deserve.

Amazing therapist! I was diagnosed with my mental illnesses as a teenager, now I'm in my 30s. The number of therapists I've had over the years has been, well, let's just say a vast selection. Cassie Maxwell is one of only three of all of those therapists over all those years that I consider to be excellent and truly helpful. It was a struggle, and I almost gave up on finding a good therapist, but I am glad I tried one last time because I finally did find one. I definitely recommend her.

She is doing a great job! She’s very good at taking note of the things that I’m trying to focus on in therapy and tuned in to issues and topics that are sensitive for me.
