Hello, my name is Acacia Quaintance. I graduated with my Masters from Case Western Reserve University in 2016. I have worked with addictions, depression, anxiety throughout my career and I specialize in the treatment of trauma, and PTSD, as well as relationship issues. I collaborate with clients to help them to feel safe and comfortable opening up about their life experiences. I use a variety of treatments such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy to help clients accomplish the goals that they have set for themselves.
I also specialize in working with issues related to race. In our community, dealing with mental health injuries can be stigmatizing. It is scary to ask for help especially from a therapist. I believe that it is important to be able to relate to the clinician that you choose to work with. I work hard to stay informed about issues affecting all communities and the best ways to reach clients in different cultural groups.
I provide clinical supervision to Licensed Social Workers (LSW) who are working towards their clinical license. I provide in person for local clinicians as well as online supervision (individual and group). I think that it is important to allow clinicians to raise the issues that they feel are important in supervision and help guide them through clinical work in the field.
I also provide consultation for clinicians who are looking to start or expand their private practice.
In my free time I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family.
