Kasey Benthin-Staley is a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio. Having been a generalist therapist in community mental health for the last decade or so, she is excited to be starting with ITG. She is looking forward to focusing largely on the LGBTQIA+ population, as wanting to serve her own community was a significant factor in her choice of career. She has extensive experience helping folks deal with past and ongoing trauma, depression, and anxiety, as well as managing symptoms of issues like bipolar disorder and ADHD. Through the lens of being queer, all these issues can be magnified, as society is still not where it needs to be as far as loving and accepting all our neighbors.
Kasey’s approach to therapy begins at the beginning; she does not distinguish between the mind and the body and believes holistic habits of care and wellness are the most effective. She also acknowledges that people are the experts in their own lives, not her or any other clinician. Kasey utilizes an eclectic combination of therapeutic methods depending on the individual and their needs, including cognitive-behavioral methods, person-centered/Rogerian, strengths-based, motivational, and narrative interviewing, with a strong emphasis on mindfulness and self-care.
Kasey hopes to cultivate a safe, open space to examine whatever aspect(s) of life in which clarity or change is desired. Talking about trauma, stress, relationships, or other stressful circumstances is difficult, and she does her best to make it as easy and as comfortable as possible.
