Jason Roderick is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who specializes in anxiety, depression, mindfulness, substance abuse, including opioids, ADHD meds, and marijuana, and life transitions. While he works with adolescents ages 14 and up and adults across the lifespan, he particularly enjoys working with college students who are navigating anxiety and/or stress.
Jason takes a holistic approach that incorporates both the mind and body. He frequently utilizes mindfulness practices, including meditation, to help his clients manage their symptoms. He also spends time looking at their lifestyles and helping them make changes. This includes exercise, eating well, sleeping well, avoiding triggers, and/or changing their daily routine. He also incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to help them change behaviors and thought patterns.
When working with clients with a history of substance use, Jason primarily utilizes CBT and Motivation Interviewing. Having worked with young people in sobriety for over a decade, he has expertise in this area and is able to develop an effective individualized treatment plan that takes into account a client’s needs and goals.
Jason’s goal is to make sure a client’s mental and physical needs are being met. He is passionate about the work he does and cares about each of his clients. Outside of private practice, he is a facilitator at Brown University’s Early Recovery Group, a weekly, meeting for Brown students who have made a commitment to maintaining sobriety. He is also a wellness coordinator at Providence Country Day School. His office is conveniently located just a few blocks from Brown and a short distance from RISD. He looks forward to meeting you.
