Kirbie Macewen

Kirbie specializes in working with clients experiencing trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, gender exploration, and life transitions. As a member of the LGBTQIA + community, Kirbie is especially passionate about serving their community. They firmly believe that self-discovery is a process that occurs throughout the life span, and that this process is deeply impacted by larger societal structures, as well as interpersonal and relational dynamics. The lens through which Kirbie works holds that healing is an individual experience that is different for everyone. Kirbie values creating safe enough and comfortable space using their sense of humor, creativity, and flexibility to establish authentic therapeutic relationships.

Kirbie’s previous work has allowed them to develop a better clinical understanding and focus on the impact of oppression, on the individual. Kirbie believes therapy is a space to heal, learn, be curious and grow. Kirbie attended Suffolk University where they earned a B.S. in Psychology, and Women and Gender Studies. Upon graduating, Kirbie decided to attend social work school to better understand and gain more experience working with both the clinical and social justice aspects of being a social worker. They graduated from Simmons University in 2017 with a Masters of Social Work (MSW) degree, and has since gone on to earn independent licensure as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW). They have attended many trainings centered around gender, sexuality, and identity since becoming a social worker and continue to further their education presently.
