Carlisle Elizabeth Blind, LCSW

Social Worker-Clinical


I was working at Sloane-Kettering in New York City and Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn as a non-denominational Chaplain in the mid- 1990’s when I decided I wanted to help people by doing more than praying for them. I was already listening to them and I wanted to learn how to help them in other ways. I have now been working in the social work field for 19 years and specialize in the treatment of trauma.

I believe everyone has the capacity to change their life for the better. Sometimes though, someone has be willing to sit with us in the darkness first. I believe that no matter what has happened there is a spark in each one of us that, once lit, give us the chance to change our own lives. Sometimes we just need someone to hold a candle up to our lives and help us see that it is worth living, worth changing; that we ourselves are worth the risk and the hope.
