World Suicide Awareness Day is September 10th.
My name is Roxanne Lamb, and I am a Licensed Social Worker. I graduated with my Master’s in Social Work and completed my Bachelor’s degree in Human and Family Development from Arizona State University. I have experience providing services in multiple settings such as private practice, substance use residential treatment centers, prison rehabilitation and reentry programs, hospice, Title I schools, and crisis centers.
Throughout my career, I have worked closely with adults who struggle with various mental health disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, disassociation, terminal/chronic illness, substance abuse, trauma, life transitions, and grief. I also have experience working with complex family dynamics, the LGBTQ+ community, and children.
I became a social worker to empower those who feel like they don’t have a voice. I believe that we often have the answers we need hiding within ourselves; but at times, due to circumstances outside of our control, we need assistance tapping back into that great power. Painful experiences in our lives can create unhealed wounds that weigh us down and cause us to suppress who we are. We can lose the vigor and enthusiasm we once had, and we become convinced that a life worth living is outside of our reach. Feelings of shame, loneliness, hopelessness, and despair can make us feel unworthy of love and belonging; and can deceive us into thinking that we are trapped here forever. I want you to know that there is hope! You have value! And you deserve to live a life of meaning and purpose!
In sessions, I am invested in helping you through this process by giving you the resources you need to succeed. It is my mission to provide you with a safe space where you can be heard, validated, and supported. I realize going to therapy and trusting a complete stranger can be daunting. But I want to commend you for your courage in taking the first step. You matter!
Therapy doesn’t have to be intimidating. When you’re ready, let’s get started by learning more about each other.
