Carey Young is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who earned her clinical Master of Social Work (MSW) degree at Rutgers University. Carey has a wide range of experience with diverse client populations in the field of mental health. In addition to private outpatient settings, Carey has worked with young adults in college counseling centers, adolescents in restorative justice programs, and with individuals and groups providing LGBTQIA affirmative therapy. Carey has additional training as an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services provider (ADHD-CCSP) to support those with neurodiversity. Carey also serves as the Clinical Coordinator at Newtown Therapy & Wellness Center.
Carey’s clinical approach in therapy is rooted in a strengths-based perspective. She incorporates modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), mindfulness, Psychodynamic, and Family Systems models that are tailored to meet the individual needs of her clients. In addition, Carey draws on strategies from The Gottman Method and Imago Therapy in her work with couples.
Carey currently enjoys working with clients to address anxiety, family relational challenges, identity development and transitions throughout life. She also works with couples to enhance or rebuild connections, develop healthy and effective communication, and find paths forward during conflict. Carey believes in creating safe and non-judgmental spaces in which clients can begin the work of exploring, healing, and becoming their most authentic selves. In sessions, Carey focuses on developing strong rapport with clients through her calm and approachable demeanor, humor, and interactive communication style.
Areas of special interest include working with the LGBTQIA population; working with couples to rebuild their relationships – and, sometimes, to consciously un-couple with respect; working with teens/young adults around identity and career development; anxiety, stress, and navigating life transitions.
Carey Young’s fee is $150 per session.
