Mary Ellen Lemieux
Clinical Social Worker
Hello! My name is Mary Ellen Lemieux and I am an LCSW who splits her time between Steamboat Springs and the San Francisco Bay Area. As such I am licensed in both Colorado and California and am available to see clients both in person or via tele-therapy through out the year. As you would expect, I spend my winters and summers in Steamboat and my fall and spring in California.
I am primarily a family therapist, specializing in working with families experiencing separation, divorce, substance abuse issues, estrangement, school failure, lack of motivation, trauma, or gender identity Issues, In the Bay Area, I work with a number of families with transgender or gender non-conforming children and teens, and can guide any family through this new season. I also enjoy parent coaching around kids of all ages, and am known for my straight-forward direction and feedback.
As a relationship-oriented therapist, I believe the strength and quality of the relationship is the catalyst for change, and strive to build a strong bond with my clients that often transcends the current issue at hand and brings families back for additional help months or years later. I also work with young adults experiencing anxiety or depression, using principles of cognitive behavioral therapy and DBT to learn new skills and better understand the root of their symptoms. Lastly, I enjoy working with mothers of all ages who are experiencing a myriad of stressors and are looking for a safe confidential place to process their feelings and then are ready to return to the world at the end of their session.
I currently have an office in downtown Steamboat.
