JoDee Liebman

Licensed Clinical Social Worker


Traumatic circumstances left me feeling numb, hopeless, and I wondered how I could go on.

Through my own healing journey, I learned that life is an opportunity to thrive, not just survive. This remains my driving force to help you find the same within yourself.

The most important element for healing is already within you.

It might sound crazy that I’ve become a professional offering to give you what I believe you already possess. However, unlocking this wisdom within yourself requires specific keys, and finding those on your own can feel daunting.

My work over the years at mental health hospitals and community behavioral health facilities revealed that certain protocols prescribed for patients often unwittingly circumvent the patient’s own wisdom.

Patients can end up relying more predominantly on professionals, institutions, or medications than on their own resilience. Granted, these can be important in a client’s healing journey. And yet, I strongly believe it should not end there.

I won’t tell you what you should do. I won’t put you in a box with a diagnosis. I desire to know and encourage you as a self-possessed individual.

Bottom line, I believe with the right tools you can learn to trust yourself to get to wherever you authentically want to go.

If you’d like to learn more about how I would work with your particular situation and needs, please
