Edward Bauer joins the Home Base team as a clinical social work intern, providing support in clinical case management, group DBT & exposure therapy, and working with veterans’ families. Edward currently attends Simmons University, where he will be graduating with his Masters Degree in Social Work in Spring of 2023. In his first-year graduate internship, Edward provided therapeutic mentorship and counseling to adults and students at Fathers’ Uplift, a community-focused mental health organization dedicated to providing practical and emotional support to men and women dealing with the challenges of parenting and reconnecting with their families. Prior to his clinical training, Edward worked as an artist and educator, creating theater that drew attention to issues of social injustice, and coaching high school students in the use of mindfulness-based therapeutic techniques. Edward has a passion for listening to the stories of his clients, and for examining and reinforcing positive models of empathetic masculinity in the world. He hopes to bring his passion for art and storytelling to his work with Home Base, and he greatly looks forward both to supporting his clients and their families.
