Casie Iwata, MSW, LICSW

Therapist

Welcome! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with 13+ years blending mental health and human rights work. I primarily see adults in my practice and am currently only offering telehealth (via HIPAA secure video). My specialties are trauma recovery, grief and loss, life transitions, relationship struggles, and identity exploration.

My hope as a therapist is to provide you with a space to be fully seen and valued as an individual with inherent strengths and abilities. I deeply believe in each person’s right to healing and connection, so I work with you to co-create a relationship that allows for compassion, creativity, and humor.

My approach in therapy is informed by challenging systems of oppression and honoring our core selves and humanity in the face of stress, past trauma, and injustice. I strive to practice from feminist and anti-racist perspectives.

My training includes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Polyvagal theory, and Mind-Body modalities; all technical ways of saying that I work with you as a whole person- mind, body, spirit, and community- to find paths of healing that feel right within you.

 

Things that bring me joy outside of work are: coffee and a good book in the mornings, singing loudly in the car, baking (well, more eating baked goods!), and outdoor naps on breezy summer days.
