Blake Mackie Therapist
He/Him/His
LCSW

I am open to new clients at this time.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with expertise in clinical interventions for depression, anxiety, trauma, psychosis, and challenges related to sexuality and gender. Working with teens and adults, I use a strengths-based, client-centered approach that integrates mindfulness, motivational interviewing, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other evidence-based modalities. My personal experiences of coming out as queer and having family members who struggle with severe mental illness have developed my passion for mental health and social justice. I love being able to connect with LGBTQ+ individuals and members of other groups facing obstacles related to systemic oppression. I also have a background in sexual health education and enjoy supporting clients through issues around relationships and sex.  I have completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

I believe a strong relationship between client and therapist is the most important component for success in therapy, and it is my goal to develop a unique, genuine connection with each of my clients. My clients have described me as approachable, humorous, and practical. I aim to provide a balance of space to process thoughts and feelings along with opportunities to develop specific plans to address mental health needs and life challenges.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or to book an appointment. You may also request a free phone or video consultation to see if we click before scheduling a first session. I would be honored for the opportunity to build a relationship with you and support you in your healing journey.
