Hello! My name is Ciara Watson and I am a Home-Based Therapist for CHOICES, Inc. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Ohio University and decided to further my education by obtaining my Master’s degree in Social Work from The Ohio State University. I have always had a passion for helping others. My area of emphasis is youth and adolescents, and my past experiences are working in a rural school-based setting to providing case work and preventative services. I also have experience in an urban school-based setting providing mental health services.
I chose social work because I want to help make a difference in the world. One of my personal favorite quotes is “do small things with great love,”. I feel as though this embodies what social work means to me personally. I like to utilize a variety of client specific techniques when working with individuals including but not limited to Cognitive Therapy, Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy. I also incorporate meditation and mindfulness techniques.
