Therapist in Lexington, Massachusetts Cara Streit, LCSW

Cara Streit, LCSW

Cara Streit is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts who has been practicing since 2009. She has a Master of Social Work and Doctorate in Special Education. Cara has experience working with people who are autistic/have autism, and people with ADHD, generalized or social anxiety, depression, and learning, developmental, or intellectual disabilities. Her strengths-based approach is neurodiversity-affirming, and she uses empathy and gentle humor to build strong therapeutic relationships. Cara pulls from a range of methods and techniques, including ACT, CBT, and motivational interviewing, to tailor support specific to each individual. From the stresses of becoming a new parent to special education planning and the transition into college and adult life, Cara appreciates gaining deep understanding of people and partnering to help them build and maintain fulfilling lives. Outside of work, Cara has a passion for international travel, has been to every continent except Antarctica, and runs a small non-profit organization that supports adults with intellectual disabilities in accessing educational tours.
