Louise Friedman, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My interest in social work as a career began when I was an undergraduate at the University of Tennessee and I had the opportunity to work on some federally funded community projects in Appalachia. After receiving a Master’s degree in Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University, I worked with the Virginia Beach Department of Social Services, where I participated in developing an emergency response to reports of child abuse or domestic violence. My work with Family Services of Tidewater gave me opportunities to develop clinical skills in working with individuals, couples and families. Through my years at Tidewater Psychotherapy Services, my clinical interests have grown to include a focus on treating depression, anxiety, and panic disorders as well as continuing interest in couples’ relationships and parenting.
