Adalyah Haarstad-Mead – MSW, LGSW

Post-Master's Fellow

Adalyah (Addy) is a Licensed Graduate Social Worker working towards independent clinical licensure. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2020, and her Master of Social Work from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2022. Addy works as a day-treatment and outpatient clinician, working with young children and adolescents.

She utilizes a person-centered and strengths based approach in her work, emphasizing a client’s strengths, knowledge, and abilities, rather than their diagnosis or deficits. When working with children, she focuses on trust, rapport building, and meeting kids where they’re at, while providing a fun, silly atmosphere.

Prior to Lorenz Clinic, Addy worked with individuals on the autism spectrum; this is a special interest of hers and she is passionate about advocating for clients and their families navigating a new autism diagnosis. Additional clinical interests of hers include anxiety, depression, and adhd, as well as determining the function of one’s behavior through behavior analytics.
