About Geoffrey Ryan, LCSWGeof is a licensed clinical social worker specializing in the treatment of adults with anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, substance use issues, and co-existing diagnoses. He believes that thoughts and feelings drive our behaviors, so change is possible by allowing therapeutic insight to inform our rational and emotional responses. Geof encourages individuals to reflect on the present, past, and developmental determinants of thinking patterns and specific emotions. He helps patients identify individual strengths, supports recognition of personal successes, and encourages everyone’s unique capacity for resilience. Geof emphasizes the development and use of practical coping skills and strategies to manage in-the-moment stressors and symptoms. He wants his patients to know that their willingness and initiative to seek mental health support is a sign of insight and strength, not an admission of personal defect. Geof believes that mental health care is equally as important as our physical well-being, and that as human beings we all have the innate ability for positive change. Geof likes cheese, and may be easily manipulated for a taste of Vacherin Mont d’Or.
