Paula Steele, LCSW

Currently only accepting clients for telehealth services.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in the social work field for over 20 years. I have a variety of experiences from working with children and families through day treatment and in home support, to individual counseling for adults facing mental health symptoms, domestic violence, homelessness, chronic illness and criminal history. I have extensive experience in the areas of ADHD, autism, trauma, depression, relationships, anxiety and parenting. I practice strengths based, client centered therapy. I believe that building a trusting, strong therapeutic relationship is key to your successful engagement in therapy and I provide a safe, empathetic, non-judgmental space for this to occur. I also believe that skill building, self-care, mindfulness and building natural supports is important in your journey to meeting your goals. I am a parent to two children, one of which has special needs. I genuinely understand the stress of parenting, navigating relationships, juggling responsibilities, accessing services, schools and resources. I look forward to supporting you in reaching your therapeutic goals.
