Saundra Bryant-Lamb , MSW, LICSW, Dr. of Education & Leadership,ABD
I am a LICSW/ Licensed Independent Clinical Social worker licensed in Minnesota with over 20 years of experience working as a Administrative Educational Licensure and have done my Dr. of Education and Leadership, ABD plus School Social Worker, Therapist, Medical Social Worker and Mental Health Professional. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, hospice and healthcare, career challenges, PTSD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse and sexual addiction.
My therapy style is responsive, warm, inclusive, empathic, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels or not looking for ways to change behaviors. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy, trauma focus and client center. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs to utilize the necessary treatment modality needed.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
