My name is Erika Cuttray, I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Georgia. I have been working in the mental health field since 2014 shadowing and preparing to become a therapist. I am a graduate of Savannah State University School of Social Work in Savannah Georgia where I started my career.
I started my work as a therapist intern at a psychiatric facility, graduated, and went on to become a child therapist. During that time I worked with families and their children, dealing with all types of issues from divorce to childhood traumas. Additionally, I have experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults in crisis coming from acute and psychiatric settings. In the past, I worked as a therapist on teenage girl units, and the autism unit as well as younger children and older boys. I was afforded the opportunity to assess children and adolescents in times of crisis and process unexpected life challenges. I worked with a team of qualified individual's severe and persistent mental illnesses through clinical assessments, risk assessments, intake assessments, and client evaluations.
The main form of treatment modalities I like to utilize is cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy, I also utilize mindfulness, solution-focused and client-centered tactics. We will discuss strengthening communication and working as a team in therapy. My goal is to help you achieve your goals, lay out expectations, and help you utilize tools that will benefit you for the rest of your life. Working together we can achieve a great outcome for your life. Not just for today, but for the long haul.
