Helping you navigate difficult transitions

Haven portrait 2

Are you in the midst of a life change that is unexpectedly difficult?

Perhaps joblessness, the loss of a loved one, or a sudden change in your health makes you feel lost in your new circumstances.

Maybe the change in your life is positive and exciting, such as a new career, marriage, or life in a new city. You’re “living the dream” and yet you aren’t fully comfortable with it.

Or perhaps what you once considered to be a source of joy and meaning now feels like something you’re stuck in. Perhaps you’re now “going through the motions,” without passion or zest.

These are all examples of life transitions and they can be difficult.  The ground under your feet might no longer feel comfortable. It might even feel unstable. You might even feel like you’re “regressing” a bit because what once gave you a source of strength no longer does–or is no longer there.

I understand that life throws us many challenges. It’s unreasonable to expect ourselves to handle every single one with skill, ease and grace. I provide an empathetic ear and help people figure out their own way through the wilderness.

My name is Haven McClure, MSW, CAPSW. I believe everyone, regardless of their situation, has been doing the best they can. Let’s discuss what’s working well for you, what can work better, and how you and I can best work together to work through your challenges.

My specialties include:

  • Group dynamics
  • Trauma
  • Work and career issues
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Relationship counseling
  • Severe and persistent mental illness
  • I also have experiences and insight into race, cultural diversity, and spiritual/religious issues.

My credentials

I have a Master’s in Social Work earned from the University of Wisconsin, and my area of concentration was mental health. I am also certified as an Advanced Practice Social Worker in the State of Wisconsin. This permits me to offer psychotherapy services under supervision from a Licensed Clinical Social Worker–in this case James F. McGloin, Jr., PhD, LCSW who has been in practice since 1971.
