My name is Kandice van Beerschoten, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in adult psychotherapy. My private practice is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
With nearly twenty years of experience, I have worked with a broad spectrum of clients. My primary area of expertise is providing judgment-free services to those in the BDSM (kink) and polyamorous communities. I also treat sexual dysfunction, as well as trauma. Though I have worked with age groups ranging from toddlers to the elderly, my strength lies in treating adults.
I am familiar with and able to utilize many different approaches (cognitive-behavioral, problem-solving, interpersonal), though I primarily practice psychoanalytic psychotherapy. My commitment is to provide a confidential space in which patients and I can address the challenges with which they are struggling together. Through empathy and understanding, I work with each person to help them build on their strengths, understand their difficulties, and find relief from suffering.
I received my Master of Social Work from the University of South Carolina in 2001, and my PhD from the Institute for Clinical Social Work in 2014.
I am licensed to practice clinical social work in North Carolina.
