About Lauren Chastain-Blackwood
I am a licensed independent clinical social worker in Washington, DC with ten years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I received my Masters of Social Work from the University of Maryland.
My training includes an advanced internship at the Department of Veterans Affairs, outpatient mental health clinic and two years of post-graduate clinical supervision at a community mental health center.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotion Focused Therapy for individuals (EFIT), and have completed an advanced certification in maternal mental health.
In my free time I enjoy practicing self-care activities like hiking, running, and spending time with friends and family.
