Max is a licensed clinical social worker who has worked in mental health settings since 2014 that include foster and adoptive care, crisis clinics, and private practice therapy. He uses methods such as mindfulness, experiential exercises (that can be weird, surprising, and fun!), and metaphors (often pop culture references) to help people learn to accept thoughts and emotions and to act upon deeply held values.
