Faye Wilkes, LCSWA

Psychotherapist

My Approach

I use an empowerment lens in my practice because I believe wholeheartedly in the strength and potential of every individual. My goal as a therapist is to foster a safe and authentic space where clients can engage in meaningful change and growth. Utilizing modalities such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness-based practices, I hope to guide clients in identifying and leveraging their strengths to meet their goals. With experience in addressing co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, I can provide comprehensive treatment to individuals navigating these complex challenges. If you’re seeking personalized support on your path to healing and self-discovery, I am here to walk alongside you. Together, we’ll navigate challenges, celebrate victories, and embark on a journey toward a more fulfilling life.

  • Experience

    My previous experience provided the opportunity to engage in outpatient individual and group therapy grounded in modalities like Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing.This experience honed my ability to create tailored interventions and fostered an understanding of the nuances of client-centered treatment planning. My other experiences with co-occurring substance use and mental treatment increased my desire to leverage client collaboration and sustainable supports in relapse prevention. Finally, I engaged with survivors at a local crisis center through crisis intervention and virtual support groups. This role taught me the importance of compassion and community connection in healing. Throughout these roles, I’ve learned the values of empathy, adaptability, and holistic care. These experiences have shaped my commitment to empowering individuals, championing growth, and fostering resilience.
