Professional Background

Clare Rolquin is a Licensed Clinical Social Work Associate in the state of North Carolina. She currently works as a Substance Use Therapist in a Partial Hospitalization (PHP) level of care where she treats individuals ages 18 and older who have a primary substance use disorder diagnosis. While many of Clare’s patients are admitted for primary substance use, many who seek treatment also have co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, bipolar, and personality disorders.

Clare first began her journey as a social worker while pursuing her Bachelor’s in Social Work. For her undergraduate internship, she was placed in an all-girls charter school for grades 6-12 which provided top-notch education to historically oppressed populations. In this setting, she met individually with girls who struggled with anxiety, interpersonal relationships, depression, and self-harming behaviors. For her master’s field placement, she had the opportunity to work in the field of substance use at a Substance Use Treatment Center. This opportunity provided experience in Detox, Residential Treatment, and Partial Hospitalization (PHP) levels of care. Upon completing her master’s internship, the treatment center decided to hire her as a Substance Use Therapist in their Partial Hospitalization Program.

As a therapist, Clare utilizes a strengths-based approach, knowing that each individual has their own unique and powerful strengths. She also recognizes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach in therapy and strives to meet clients where they are at.
