Beth Perlmutter, DSW, LCSW.
I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for 15+ years and have helped adults with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, as well as dealing with medical illness such as cancer, diabetes, and chronic pain. I received my bachelors degree in Psychology and Music from Emory University in Atlanta, GA; my masters degree in social work from the University of Texas at Austin; and my Doctor of Social Work degree from the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
I use a mixture of approaches in my work with clients. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, also called CBT, which is considered the best treatment for depressive symptoms. CBT helps clients to look at their thoughts, feelings, and actions and helps people take a more realistic look at situations rather than reacting to emotions or jumping to conclusions when something difficult happens. I also use mindfulness-based approaches and help clients learn to be more engaged in their everyday lives and respond to difficulties rather than react. I am also trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which uses a blend of CBT and mindfulness techniques to help clients live a rich and fulfilling value-focused life. Additionally, I incorporate self-compassion techniques to help you find peace and nourish yourself through challenges.
I have a warm and compassionate approach to therapy that helps my clients thrive. I believe that everyone is trying to do their best in a difficult world. If you are finding that your best efforts aren’t getting you the life that you want, I can help you refocus and find your groove again!
