Emily Grimes MSW, LCSW
Owner, Clinical Director, Therapist
I completed specialized training in mental health for children, adolescents, and adults while earning my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, trained in helping those suffering from depression, anxiety, disordered eating, interpersonal relationships, emotion regulation, crisis, and trauma. I have extensive experience working in crisis situations, including self-injury and suicidal ideation and attempts. I counsel individuals, couples, and families and facilitate group therapy. My passion is assisting others in gaining a better understanding of themselves and their individual strengths and struggles, and how they can use those strengths to work through challenges, to live an authentic and genuinely happy life.
I have extensive experience practicing the evidenced-based treatment Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with clients struggling with emotion dysregulation and interpersonal ineffectiveness, having an inability to tolerate distress, and lacking mindfulness skills. This treatment is effective with almost all populations and issues.
In addition to my clinical work with clients, I also facilitate training for licensed clinicians, students, and the community on a variety of topics including Emergency Mental Health, DBT, Self Harm and Suicidality, Ethical Boundaries, DBT Skills Group Training, Resiliency and Compassion Fatigue, and How to Work Successfully with High Conflict Personalities.
For those new to the field and looking for a strong clinical base, I am available to supervise LCSW-A’s for licensure.
