Our Healing & Wellness Space
Patsy Jean-Pierre, LICSW
I am an individual therapist with over a decade of experience providing direct service care and clinical supervision to front line health care workers. I became a social worker because I was called to support people through difficult times in their life, no matter what that difficulty might be. In my years of practice, I have provided care to people experiencing homelessness, suffering from substance use disorder, living with chronic health conditions, experiencing psychiatric crisis, and returning home from incarceration. I have experience working with adults with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and recovery from substance use disorder.
Life can be really tough on us as individuals, and I am a believer in multifaceted community treatment. I use a strength’s based, whole person approach to provide individualized treatment to truly meet client’s where they are on their road to wellness. Some of the modalities that I use in session include motivational interviewing, harm reduction and cognitive behavioral therapy.
In addition to individual therapy, I provide both clinical supervision and professional development trainings to front line health care workers. Through the Covid-19 pandemic, worker burn-out was at an all-time high. Having access to quality clinical supervision and support is necessary for all of us, and I am dedicated to providing such care.
I received my Master’s in Social Work at Columbia University, and Bachelor’s degree in Social Work at Providence College. I have a certificate in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy from Boston University.
I truly believe it takes a village to get through life’s twists and turns, and I’d be honored to be a part of yours.
Making the empowered choice to start individual therapy can be really hard, and finding the right therapist can be even harder. Please feel free to reach out to me to schedule a free 15-minute video session or phone call to see if we are the right fit. In individual therapy, together we can explore different life challenges, transitions, and stressors, as well as work towards building coping mechanisms to manage and overcome grief, anxiety, depression, recovery and past trauma.
Whether you are working towards your independent licensure as a social worker, or serving as a direct service provider in another capacity, clinical supervision and support is vital to further developing your skillset and preventing compassion fatigue and burn-out. Email me to set up a time to discuss clinical supervision needs for yourself, or for members of your staff. Individual clinical supervision and group supervision provided, both in person or virtually.
Interested in hosting a training for your front-line staff? Email me to discuss your team or agency’s individual needs. Past workshops that I have conducted have included outreach safety, working with people experiencing homelessness and living with HIV/AIDS, medication adherence, linkage and retention in care in the medical setting, assessing and responding to suicidal/homicidal ideation, motivational interviewing, clinical documentation of substance use disorder in the medical record and self-care strategies in the workplace.
