    Liberty McClead

    Liberty received her undergraduate degree at Boston University and her clinical social work training at Washington University in Saint Louis. She has experience with nearly every mental health treatment setting, including outpatient clinics, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, emergency services, state-funded community-based treatment, and managed care. Liberty uses multiple therapeutic approaches, including motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). She specializes in working with young adults, substance use, and serious mental illness (including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, and generalized psychosis), and is also an expert in domestic and sexual violence recovery.

    Liberty believes that, although we cannot change what life brings, we can alter how we respond to what happens in our lives; she believes that therapy is about learning to respond in harmony with the world and getting in touch with our values to live more meaningfully. Liberty is warm and genuine, and uses humor and a blend of talk therapy and practical exercises in her sessions.
