Caroline Strauss, LSW
Lakeview Virtual

Caroline, a dedicated clinician with a Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan and a certificate in Jewish communal leadership, brings a wealth of experience to our clinical team. Holding a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Michigan State University, Caroline has a diverse background in community mental health and private practice.

With a specialization in treating OCD and related disorders, Caroline is well-versed in various therapeutic approaches. She has advanced training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Her passion lies in supporting individuals dealing with anxiety and distressing OCD themes, including harm, sexual, violence, and scrupulosity and assisting them in moving from fear and self judgment to freedom from intrusive thoughts.

Caroline’s expertise extends to working with kids, teens, and their parents, fostering a collaborative and empowering therapeutic environment. She also addresses phobias and body-focused repetitive behaviors such as trichotillomania and skin picking. Through her tailored sessions, Caroline strives to empower clients, guiding them towards relief and the ability to lead fulfilling lives.

In addition to her clinical work, Caroline is committed to creating a more accessible field of mental health. Outside of her professional endeavors, Caroline finds joy in reading, crocheting, cooking, swimming, and exploring the city.

Caroline is just the most fantastic and wonderful person for this job. With her help I was able to regain parts of my life that I had lost. Not only is she great at providing clear direction for treatment, but she is also a great listener to what I thought may be helpful. She held me accountable and also was sure to tell me when I was doing well. She was very clear that this therapy would not solve ALL of my problems. But I am here to say that life is much easier because of how many she was able to help me through.
