Cara Bonwell-Orr

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 15 years of experience in a variety of settings and with persons of diverse backgrounds. I have worked with survivors of domestic violence, persons with chronic medical conditions, families who have involvement with department of social services, outpatient programs, and inpatient psychiatry.

I believe therapy can help a person navigate through life's challenges. I believe in providing a trusting, nurturing and nonjudgmental environment where people can find and be their best selves. Therapy is a relationship between the clinician and the client. I will treat the relationship with respect, sensitivity and empathy. I use a variety of interventions such as solution focused, cognitive behavioral and person centered therapy.

It is an honor to have the opportunity to help my clients through their most challenging times and I hope to have the opportunity to help you.
