Andrew Archer, MSSW, LCSW

Andrew ArcherWork through and let go. Andrew supports you in creating more satisfying relationships by developing new ways to cope with what life throws at you. He has a flexible schedule (evenings/weekends), because not everyone can leave work during the day to go to therapy. Andrew meets with individuals, couples and families seeking improvement and emotional healing. This ranges from communication issues to the adjustment from an unforeseen event as well as decreasing anxiety and dealing with depression.

Psychotherapy allows a person to gain insight into what is preventing them from becoming who they really are. This could be past events that trouble you or worries about the future. Together we will find the source and effectively process what you are struggling with.

In addition, Andrew is unique in his extensive insight into the dynamics of Bipolar Disorder. This includes identifying early warning signs to prevent episodes and treatment strategies that involve the whole family. If you are questioning how you are managing the use of drugs or alcohol, Andrew is a good person to talk with. He also has extensive clinical experience with trauma using Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) to unlock distressing memories you get stuck on. Mindfulness to the present moment and non-judgment are the foundation of his therapeutic practice.

Andrew is a speaker, author and instructor of clinical social work topics and a lecturer at the School of Social Work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
