Drauzin Kern, LSCW

My name is Drauzin Kern, and I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker. I completed my graduate studies at Columbia University School of Social Work in New York in 1988 and practiced in New York, California, and Louisiana. Most recently, I retired from the Department of Defense/Defense Health Agency, where I was privileged to provide behavioral health services to members of the United States Army and their families.

Over the past thirty-two years, I have been fortunate to have worked closely with clients over a broad range of challenges including depression, anxiety and stress, coping with grief and loss, trauma, life transitions, LGBTQ+ related concerns, professional burnout, and existential crises.

Being a therapist is my life’s work. My intention is to meet every client with respect, understanding, compassion, and without judgment. My theoretical approach incorporates Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and I work collaboratively with every client to develop a treatment plan that will best address their needs.

Vulnerability necessitates quiet courage; yet infuses one with noble strength. I have great admiration for every person that chooses the path of vulnerability as he or she enters therapy.
