Russell Chamberlain CADCIII

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Sharing your intimate details with a stranger is, well, weird. Don't feel like sitting in an office, avoiding eye contact, with the therapist, answering questions? In two separate practices I provide office and park based experiential activities and Equine assisted psychotherapy for ages 12 and up.

My Approach

Learning to feel "safe" opens us to experience connection and learning. I'm part of a group, insurance reimbursed practice, Energy Matters ( I have a separate, private pay only Equine focused practice LifeSTREAM Therapy LLC ( Whether in the office, park or with horses I use experiential activities that are engaging and even fun. With Energy Matters I'm in network with Kaiser and Optum and in process with AETNA, MODA and Pacific Source. Mindfulness, drumming and Collaborative Problem Solving approaches are used as well in healing through co-regulation. I use a heart rate biofeedback tool called the HeartMath emWave2. We work together to create and strengthen new neural pathways. As individuals, partners, co-parents or families we all benefit from knowing a felt sense of safety and experiencing relationship.

My Background
