Ann Young

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My personal and professional philosophy is based on honoring every individual's uniqueness and supporting their ability to uncover their own truth. I am committed to providing a comfortable, respectful and confidential environment in which people are able to explore their inner feelings, outer circumstances and how these interact. I approach this work on an individual basis, combining psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques with openness to discovery through creative expression, dreams and the unconscious. My practice is constantly evolving and I regard each new experience as an honor and a privilege.

I am a licensed clinical social worker in private practice and have been working in the field since 1983. I earned my MSW at Smith College School for Social Work in Northhampton, Massachusetts. As a clinical social worker, I have advanced training and expertise in helping people navigate through life's difficulties. Since my graduate training, I have worked in a variety of settings including a private mental health clinic in Aspen, Colorado, the Boise School District and my current private practice in Boise's North End. I am a member of the Idaho Society of Clinical Social Workers and the National Association of Social Workers.

I work with adolescents, adults of all ages and couples in both short term problem focused counseling and longer term psychodynamic psychotherapy. My particular areas of interest are women's issues, trauma, grief and loss, and changes that come from adjusting to any new phase of life that may result in depression and anxiety. In addition to seeing adolescents in a therapeutic setting I often collaborate with schools, other heath providers and agencies in order to support the most successful and integrated outcome possible.
