Meredith McCabe, LCSW
My work is inspired by my years of life and work experience. I believe that we all bring to every moment all that we have lived and learned.
There are times when, for whatever reason, we are unable to access the strengths within to help guide us. My work centers around supporting clients as they work to re-engage those inner strengths and arrive at a place of hope.
Life is full of transitions, some of which can be more challenging than others. There are many moments in our lives where we may feel stuck, lost or confused and need help finding our way through it.
Over the years, I have been amazed at the resiliency of each individual -even if, in the moment, he or she isn’t able to recognize it. I have learned as much from my clients, during the toughest times of their lives, as they have from me.
The most important part of therapy is joining with someone you trust as you embark on the journey of self-reflection and change. I am honored when a client puts that faith in me to allow me to be present with them as they work to find those solutions and feel better. Whether through finding their inner wisdom or building new skills and perspectives, there is hope and possibility.
I have many years of experience working with individuals in their journey to better understand their life circumstances, improve their coping skills and find a healthier balance in their lives.
Areas of focus in my work include stress, anxiety, relationships, parenting, divorce, aging, illness and disability. For most of my career I worked as a school social worker and middle school counselor, understanding the needs of children and parents as they navigated their way through the developmental years. I also worked with school staff as they managed their own personal and professional stressors.
Additionally, I am informed by my own experience as a parent of three children, a mother-in-law to two, and grandparent to four. I have also learned much from my own divorce process, re-marriage and support of aging parents. I am bolstered every day by the love in my life from family, as well as my love of the outdoors, whether in the mountains, sailing on the ocean or just spending time in my own backyard.
Most importantly, I value and honor the strength and resilience in each individual and the trust that is placed in the therapeutic relationship.
