Stuart Warren began working as a primary therapist at Caron Renaissance in 2019. “Helping people discover pieces of themselves is like working on a puzzle together. I love seeing the light bulb go on when the work we are doing begins to make sense to patients. Even better is when patients I worked with come back and share their achievements and progress.”
Stuart started at Caron Renaissance as a counselor assistant in 2017, a position that enabled him to gain an in-depth understanding of the Caron Renaissance clinical philosophy and psychodynamic approach. In this role, he deepened and expanded his skills and worked closely with the clinical team. Stuart is also a part of the Caron Renaissance Dialectical Behavior Therapy program.
“Caron Renaissance has an ‘it takes a village’ approach so that staff works collaboratively and supports each other. Dealing with the issues we do, we really need that close-knit and understanding support.”
Stuart believes strongly in the importance of family involvement in treatment and practicing principles of trauma-informed care. Prior to coming to Caron Renaissance, he provided treatment services for substance abuse and domestic violence at Florida Family Care. He also worked for the Washington, D.C. Department of Family Services as a caseworker.
Stuart received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Guilford College and his master’s degree in social work from Barry University. He is pursuing licensure as a clinical social worker.
