Lyda Hoover


10 years of experience

Hello! My name is Lyda. I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have gained much knowledge and a great listening ear over the last 10 years or so of professional practice and a great deal more personally. I began my experience with substance abuse. Since that time, I have worked with couples who are interested in staying together and those who are divorced, just trying to be better parents. I have patients from adolescence to the later years in life. I have helped those committing self-harm, those depressed, and much more. My only purpose is to help you reach your goals.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session will include a discussion of expectations and what goal(s) you want to reach while working together. I will also use this time to get an idea of the situation and your perspective. You will leave the session knowing that you have been heard, goals have been identified, and a plan to reach those goals is already in action. The first step is youbeing there.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I am an advocate of Cognitive Behavioral theory. I also use visuals and physical prompts to help one understand their perspective and others.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I listen well and will ensure I have heard you as you were meant to be heard. I understand that the only goal you will reach will be the one you set and only do so on your terms. I am flexible how we reach our destination, we just need to reach it.
