Kathleen Mahar, PhD, LCSW


Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience. I have earned both a master’s degree (MSW) and a PhD in social work. I have had the opportunity to work with various populations to include working in child welfare, health care, oncology, and military settings. I have specialized in treating active-duty military members from all services, veterans, other first responders, and their families for the last 10 years. I have also volunteered with military members and their families for additional years as a military spouse. In my practice, I have treated individuals who have experienced multiple forms of trauma, often facing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I also have expertise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, bi-polar disorder, insomnia, chronic health problems, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, and life transitions, among others.

I use an integrative approach in the treatment of individuals, to include the use of cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, emotionally focused therapy (EFT), interpersonal therapy, grief counseling, and crisis intervention. My priority is for clients to feel safe, comfortable, and free from judgment during their treatment. I treat individuals with genuineness and empathetic understanding with a commitment to assist clients in the development of a sense of well-being.
