Anycia Grady, MSSA, LISW-S
Clinical Social Worker/Owner
Anxiety & Trauma

As a Clinically Licensed Social Worker, Anycia utilizes Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, CBT, and/or a psychoanalytical approach to identifying the underlying trauma/reasons for current responses to stimuli. I utilize a strengths based approach to identify areas of success where clients have mastered skills translating as a coping skill.

As a clinician, I have found that everyone has a story. I value the challenges and success of each individual I work with. I am a support to assist in "redefining," the story. I believe each person is the captain of their life; I am just the rudder to help guide you on your journey.

Jeannette Silvernail, LISW
Licensed Independent Social Worker

Jeannette Silvernail is a Clinically Licensed Social Worker hailing from Akron, Ohio. She comes to the practice possessing a Master's degree in Social Work from Youngstown State University. Jeannette brings a wealth of knowledge to the practice having worked in mental/ behavioral health since 2013 trained in the use of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT); specializing in working with children, adolescents and young adults to discover how to improve their lives; they can cover anxiety, depression, sleep issues, behavioral issues, and other issues.

Jeannette's use of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as a model of therapy to support you the client in learning to understand how to manage personal challenges in areas such as emotional safety, relationship issues, workplace challenges, and improving emotional well-being. Jeannette supports her clients in understanding the value of using opposites to create change. DBT is understanding that opposites can coexist together at the same time- for instance the notion of acceptance and change. Jeannette will support you her client with moving toward accepting who you are and changing negative behavior using four DBT life skills: mindfulness, distress intolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Her purpose is to motivate you to use the skills learned in therapy to navigate emotional challenges in your life’s journey.

Jeannette also engages her clients in the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as treatment methods.

 

No matter what type of approach, Jeannette believes in using a strength-based perspective.
