Joanne Assarsson, MSW LICSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I am an experienced clinical social worker specializing in adults challenged by issues related to anxiety, depression, medical illness and life transitions.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with extensive experience working in a university based teaching hospital and ambulatory care clinic. I am licensed in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia. My private practice focusses on supporting adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, medical illness, trauma, loss and life transitions. I also have specialized training and experience working with patients and their caregivers undergoing and/or recovering from Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant and CAR-T treatments. I am also a trauma informed practitioner and hold an advanced certification in trauma treatment.
It is common for the accumulation of everyday stressors to negatively impact quality of life. My skill set translates well across many life circumstances. Let's work together on implementing the steps necessary for positive and lasting change. You will leave our sessions with strategies and coping tools that can be used immediately towards meeting your goals and improving wellbeing.
