Clare A. Stadlen, LCSW, CEDS

Background

Clare is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist & IAEDP approved CEDS Supervisor (CEDS-S), and the owner of CAS Counseling Psychotherapy Associates.  She has three decades (yikes!) of professional experience in counseling and psychotherapy. Clare began her career in New York City where she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from The New School for Social Research and her Master’s Degree from Columbia University School of Social Work.

Clare has worked extensively with adolescents and adults of all ages. Her early training in the treatment of trauma and eating disorders occurred while working at the Renfrew Center, an internationally renowned residential treatment center.  She has subsequently served as a consultant for several eating disorder treatment centers in North Carolina.  Clare continues to attend conferences and trainings regularly and has a particular interest in studying the intersection of mind-body experience and the new research into the brain and it’s generative (and re-generative) responses to attachment and interpersonal relationships. Clare also has a background in art and enjoys incorporating creative arts in the therapeutic process.

Clare is bilingual and has enjoyed the opportunity to provide therapy in both English and Spanish. She has lectured at high schools, universities, and international conferences on the subjects of body image, therapeutic modalities, and diversity in eating disorder treatment. Clare has been in private practice in North Carolina since 2001. She loves her work as a psychotherapist and as a supervisor for new social workers seeking licensure and professionals seeking eating disorder training.

Philosophy

Clare’s clinical orientation begins with recognition of the “continuity of being” – a concept rooted in Object Relations Theory, though also embraced and expressed in many therapeutic models. In practice, Clare’s approach incorporates a variety of theoretical schools, including Ego Psychology, Object Relations, Gestalt, Analytical, Cognitive-Behavioral, Family Systems, Feminist Psychoanalytic, Relational, Expressive Arts Therapies, Somatic (body-oriented approaches) and Mindfulness.

Having worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues and struggles with food, weight, body image, and disordered eating, Clare recognizes that all mental health symptoms are in place for reasons. Clare utilizes the psychotherapy work to uncover those reasons and discover more effective means of caring for Self. Exploring family dynamics, life experiences, personal beliefs, and both conscious and unconscious aspects of Self are all part of the therapeutic process. Working with Clare involves engaging with conscious and unconscious material which surfaces in the psychotherapy room as well as bringing attention to body sensations, feelings, thoughts and behavior patterns, developing insights, and strategizing solutions.

Joy

Clare finds joy in making things with her hands, swimming, photography, learning languages, practicing accents, traveling, reading, geeking out on grammar, and spending time with loved ones, especially her daughter.

Clare works Monday-Friday in our Durham office at 3622 Lyckan Parkway, Suite 3002, Durham, NC 27707

Christine Pavey, LCSW

Background

Christine is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with experience treating eating disorders at the inpatient, residential, and outpatient levels of care. Christine earned a Batchelor’s in Philosophy from Elon University with a focus on feminist theory and sexual ethics. After spending a few years teaching 6th grade English and horseback riding lessons, Christine returned to school and received her Masters in Social Work from UNC Chapel Hill. 

Christine has experience providing individual, family, and group therapy to people struggling with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, and PTSD. She has worked with a range of ages, predominantly focusing on children, adolescents, and young adults. Christine is committed to creating a safe space for individuals of all gender identities and presentations. 

Philosophy

As a psychodynamic and attachment oriented therapist, Christine believes that the foundation of therapeutic treatment is a safe and supportive relationship between therapist and client. The process of treatment often uses the therapeutic relationship itself to uncover relational patterns from earlier in life that may be causing pain or dysfunction in the present day. By identifying the historical antecedent to a seemingly confusing or inappropriate emotional response, client and therapist are able to disrupt maladaptive patterns and choose new, more values congruent responses. 

Joy

Christine finds joy in her horses, her dog, family, friends, food, and the woods. 

Christine’s Hours and Location:

Christine works Monday-Thursday (afternoon & evening) and Sundays (daytime) in our Durham office at 3622 Lyckan Parkway, Suite 3002, Durham, NC 27707.

Robin D. Langdon, MBA

Robin is our Billing Associate, Administrative Assistant, and All-Around-Fix-or-Figure-Out-Just-About-Anything-Person (is there a title for that?).  You will not likely see or speak with Robin but if things are running smoothly at CAS, you know she is in the background.  And, if you ever find out you’ve overpaid and are due a refund from us or your insurance company, you have Robin to thank for being on top of it.  (If you find out you owe more, you can thank the questionable competence of your insurance company.)
