Meredith Rose is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Missouri, currently pursuing licensure as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She completed the Master of Social Work program at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis with a concentration in Mental Health. Meredith has worked with adults, adolescents, and couples on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, life transitions, and self-exploration including work surrounding LGBTQ+ identities. Meredith is also a Kink-Aware professional (KAP), and offers a non-judgmental approach to working with members of these special communities.
Meredith believes that the path with each relationship with each client is unique, but uses core values of acceptance and strengths-based perspectives to inform a centered, nonjudgmental approach with each client. She is particularly interested in considering the whole person (rather than isolated constructs which divide us up into parts), and often incorporates awareness-increasing tools such as meditation and mindfulness.
Many people come to therapy endowing therapists with far more power and insight than we truly have — they assume that the therapist has everything figured out. While I do want to be a model for others, I prefer to think of the therapeutic endeavor as a journey of two equals — we are both climbing our own mountains, side by side. From my mountain, I have a unique vantage point about yours, and I can things see you can’t and help you take a different path or just encourage you to keep going. We’re all still climbing, still making mistakes, still learning from them, but sometimes that additional perspective can make all the difference. It is my sincere desire help you find and thrive in your own unique identity. Everyone is worthy of love and acceptance.
