Dr. Stewart (she/her) is a clinical social worker with over 27 years of experience. She has practiced psychotherapy in a variety of settings, including city schools, community-based agencies, a professional school counseling center and private practice. Before coming to The Family Institute she aided healthcare students (e.g., medical students, dental students, etc.) to cope with the stress related to their training programs. While her practice is broad, she has a particular interest in the intersection of culture and one’s internal emotional experience.
Dr. Stewart’s approach is flexible, collaborative and approachable. She knows that coming to therapy may be anxiety-provoking for many and may be the result of much pain and struggle. Her goal is to help her clients find new understandings about their lives and open them up to new ways of thinking and behaving.
