Why socialworkup?

A workup is done in healthcare to gather the medical information necessary to create a treatment plan. The name socialworkup reclaims the importance of honoring our psychological and social pieces, too. These elements contribute to overall health and longevity and are just as essential. Tending to your mental wellness is simply taking care of yourself.

The story behind the name


Social work aims to enhance well-being and uses a social justice lens to meet the basic needs of all people. As a clinical social worker, I hope to play my role in elevating the profession by making trustworthy mental health education and activities tangible and accessible for all. 


A clinical social worker will help you to empower yourself by respecting your own process and readiness. While helping you strengthen your personal relationships, the therapist-client relationship in therapy is designed to serve as a part of your healing, too. 

The relationship is viewed as a partnership 

What makes a clinical social worker a good therapist? 

Social workers pursue social change efforts by promoting the connection to the needs of all, especially those who have limited access. In therapy, there is an additional layer that ensures you will have access to the information, services, and resources you need. 

A social justice lens is continually applied 

There are systems that play a role in our lives on different levels - personal, family, community, and society. With knowledge of the interplay of these systems, we have the ability to examine issues and explore solutions from multiple angles.

View challenges and solutions on multiple levels 

Every individual has a unique combination of their upbringing, experiences, and cultural and ethnic diversity that makes them who they are. Social workers hold ethical standards to respect the dignity and worth of every individual, ensuring you will be supported and valued for exactly who you are.

Respecting what makes you - you
