C. Tyia Grange Isaacson, Ph.D., LCSW
I chose this career because I saw human suffering, and I wanted to help solve this problem in the world. I am a lifelong learner seeking to know how to better help my patients understand their suffering, feel less alone with it, and start to feel better. I am honored to do the work I do.
I am passionate about the field and a passionate teacher and supervisor. I am an avid researcher, reader, and learner. I want to share what I have learned and keep learning how to best supervise each new supervisee. I have a broad knowledge base coupled with a wide breadth of clinical experience serving in settings from hospitals, to family court, to schools, to private practice. I have worked with and diagnosed many individuals, families, couples, children, and groups. I am sensitive to differences that can impact the supervisory relationship, including differences in culture and learning style.
I want to work with those new to the field to show them what it looks like to be inspired by the work twenty years later. I find too many seasoned clinicians who express being burned out, and I want new professionals to see a path forward with a rewarding, inspiring, lifelong career that does not include personal burnout.
