Frederick Fearday, LCSW

Telehealth Available


I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker with 35+ years of experience working primarily with adults. I received my Masters Degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Since then I have worked at an in-patient unit, a community mental health center, a university research and training center, and at a Veteran Affairs hospital. My background also includes graduate teaching and clinical research. I believe that is is imperative to develop a strong therapeutic relationship in which clients feel supported and safe as they seek to address their mental health challenges. I seek to understand a client’s personal values, perspectives, and life story and how that influences their current situation. Importantly, I will want to know a client’s strengths and what motivates them for change to develop a plan of care responsive to each person’s unique needs. I use a variety of clinical approaches that are informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I want to help clients identify specific goals to achieve in therapy and have a clear understanding on how we will work to achieve them. In this process, I will find it important to repeatedly review with clients if therapy is meeting their needs.
