Tyler Bing Lawson graduated with his Master of Social Work from UNC Chapel Hill. He takes a holistic approach to healthcare, understanding that when one area of health is being neglected, it can create deficits in other areas. Tyler believes that functioning and dysfunction can be tied to our thoughts, behavior, and emotional states, and he pulls heavily from systems theory and dialectical behavioral therapy when treating his patients. He has experience providing individual and family counseling in a variety of contexts, as well as providing support for academic settings. He currently works at our Catalyst Somatics and Psychotherapy office, where he specializes in depression, anxiety, LGBTQ issues, and CBT. He treats ages 12 and up.
