Joli Fekeci, LCSW
Licenced Clinical Social Worker

I am a licensed clinical social worker and have worked in the mental health field since the early 1980's. I received my BA in Psychology from the University of Virginia and my Master of Social Work degree from Catholic University, specializing in adult individual therapy. As a social worker, I utilize a biopsychosocial approach to assessment and treatment, which involves looking at health, mental health and social issues affecting your life. I emphasize client self-determination, which means that you directly set your goals for therapy. Therapy then becomes a process that explores what you are feeling, thinking, and doing in your day-to-day life. The purpose is to identify and maximize your strengths, and make any desired changes in order to meet your goals. Past issues and patterns of behavior are addressed as they relate to your goals in the present.

I have experienced working with a variety of client concerns, including relationship issues, self esteem issues, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. As a former executive at a social service agency, I also have experience supervising, managing and motivating employees which can be helpful if you are having work-related concerns.

Over the years I have worked in a variety of setting including inpatient, residential and community mental health agencies. My experience has primarily been working with adults. I also co facilitate a support group for teenage girls at our neighborhood school. This group focuses on drug and alcohol use preventions and building self-esteem and resilience. I have experience with teenage boys as well as my own!
