Adam Vose-O'Neal is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with particular specialty in addictions and substance use, as well as general expertise in depression, anxiety, life transitions, existential questions, and relationship challenges. He sees teenagers through adults, and has a particular passion for seeing college students and young adults who are trying to figure out who they want to be and what they want to do in life.
Adam is particularly well-versed in Narrative Therapy, a modality that identifies the problem as the problem, not the person as the problem. Through Narrative Therapy, Adam helps clients separate their problems from themselves, identify their values, and connect the events in their lives to reclaim their life stories. He often uses the dry erase board to work through these thought exercises with clients and occasionally writes short letters to clients after the appointment as a bridge between sessions.
In addition to private practice, Adam works at partial programs at Butler Hospital, including the Young Adult Partial Program, and previously interned at Providence College's Counseling Center and the Rhode Island Hospital Substance Abuse Service. He dedicates himself to creating a collaborative therapeutic relationship that is solution and insight focused, honest, and down-to-earth. He is a graduate of Boston University and U. Mass Amherst.
