Professional statement

Mary Craven is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Work located in West Warwick, RI. Mary works with clients who struggle with being stuck in their life situation, whether that’s due to financial stress or a result of a prolonged medical issue like disability. Many of Mary’s clients find that they’re unsure how to move forward - they’ve tried to fix their lives but still feel stuck. They arrive at therapy feeling frustrated, unmotivated, and frustrated. Mary helps these clients face their distress and find ways to problem solve so they can live the life they want.



Mary’s approach to working with clients incorporates solutions-focused therapy. Clients set goals for themselves and detail out their plans with Mary’s support. Mary then helps them take steps towards reaching those goals, measuring and reflecting on their progress along the way. Mary also utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in her work with clients. Clients learn how to evaluate their thought processes and avoid the thought patterns that lead to negative emotions - patterns like self-criticism, comparison to others, or negative self-talk. Mary focuses on bringing positivity and positive psychology into the lives of her clients so they have tangible tools that can help them improve their moods.



Mary earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from the Rhode Island School of Social Work. She takes an organic approach to sessions, and enjoys it when clients share their concerns with her, even when those concerns are about therapy itself. Her goal is to empower clients to change and find emotional equilibrium.
