My Approach to Helping

When life gets tough, whether it's anxiety or depression or relationship dissatisfaction, it can feel overwhelming. It is often an internal wake-up call to reach for support and receive help from others in order to cope effectively.

My name is Luke Schlimme and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. After receiving my Master's of Social Worker, I worked with foster children, the aging population in hospice, and then returned to working with families and children at Rady Children's Hospital before starting a private practice.

My experience working across the lifespan has provided me insight into the needs of individuals at different ages and stages. I am looking forward to working with you as we walk this journey together.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

You're not alone! Many people wonder who goes to therapy. The answer is many types of people! Years ago, therapy was stigmatized, seen as something only weak or very sick people sought. Thins have changed. Now people from many backgrounds and with diverse needs seek therapy. Some common reasons for therapy include personal growth, temporary or long-term depression, anxiety, stress, substance abuse, relationship issues, improving communication skills, and understanding how the past affects the present. No matter why you?re considering therapy, your reason is a good one. If you have doubts or questions, please contact me.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

The length of therapy varies. Ultimately it's up to you, since you know better than I what your goals are. If you want short-term therapy, I work very hard to offer tailored sessions that quickly address your needs. If you have broader or less specific goals, I can work within that framework. The length of therapy depends on the issues you wish to address, the nature of the problem, and the work you do between sessions. But the process is collaborative, and I will always check in with you about how it?s going and how you?re progressing.
