Craig Groehn, MSW, LISW

Fairfield Iowa Licensed Independent Social Worker
and Mental Health Therapist

It is both an honor and a privilege to work with people whose goals range from improving one’s success and performance to freedom from suffering and increasing health and happiness.

I am a generalist serving people ranging in age from 9 to 96 and providing individual, couple, family and group therapy. However, I specialize in working with PTSD, trauma, attachment issues, anxiety, men’s issues, military/veterans and their family members.

I am well trained in a broad range of therapies including most contemporary and evidence-based theories and incorporate thoughtful, holistic and creative therapy approaches. I work with client strengths to help find creative resources and solutions that help them learn positive practices for the freedom and strength to be oneself. I celebrate all diversity and strive to be inclusive and respectful at all levels. I graduated in 1987 and have many years of providing therapy, working in settings such as schools, clinics, agencies, community, residential and nursing homes.

I adhere to high standards and principles to provide a safe, compassionate environment for peaceful resolution of one’s challenges.
