Arryn M Hawthorne LCSW
Clinical Director, Hawthorne Tree Psychotherapy, LLC
50-60% of my practice is focused on work with people who live with anxiety, OCD and/or OC related disorders. Many of these folks are also members of the LGBTQ community. I am particularly focused on working with LGBTQ folks who also have anxiety, OCD and/or OC related disorders.
For over 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with a number of people living with OCD. My experience includes inpatient and outpatient mental health settings in addition to primary care and private practice. In addition to having completed IOCDF BTTI, I regularly attend trainings and seek consultation from senior therapists in the field of OCD. I understand that part of treatment is getting ready to do the challenging, but effective and rewarding, work of ERP.
In addition to my commitment to continuing my work as an antiracist person and therapist, I also dedicate myself to the core values of the social work profession. These values are: service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, the importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence. The importance of valuing the humanity of all people is integral to my practice.
I have over 20 years of direct work experience with people who are oppressed in some way or ways by society. I am also committed to attending training and seeking out learning opportunities. For ten years, I worked in an outpatient therapy and primary care agency whose mission is to serve LGBTQ people and work toward equity for all people.
