Elease Cook, LMSW
I enjoy working with clients through pivotal life transitions such as entering higher education, new relationships, new careers and end-of-life.
I utilize a person-centered, holistic approach, and aid clients in building support systems within their lived communities. Through my lived experience, I hope I can empower fellow marginalized individuals to seek therapy, and improve their quality of life.
I am a two-time graduate of Radford University. While living and working in rural environments for five years, I have learned how to navigate and bridge individuals with community resources.
I have worked in multiple higher education institutions including the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Radford University, Virginia Tech, and the University of Virginia. I have enjoyed my experiences as a social work intern at both Carilion St. Alban’s Inpatient Psychiatric Unit, Virginia Tech’s Services for Students with Disabilities, and New River Valley Community Services as a Clinician for Assertive Community Treatment.
In my free time I enjoy reading books by marginalized authors, and playing with my dog Blossom.
