Aubrey Stroub is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who graduated from California State University, Bakersfield with a Master’s degree in social work with an emphasis on health and mental health. Since 2004, she has held positions in acute care and psychiatric hospitals, home health agencies, palliative care programs, and hospice services.
Born and raised in Bakersfield, Aubrey was drawn to the field of social work because of an interest in adapting to adversity. Most of us encounter adversity in varying degrees throughout our lives and, as social beings, we adapt better when we have adequate resources to live and the support and encouragement from others.
In her work with individuals and families, she shares resource information for a wide range of needs and explores the relationship between physical health and mental health, paying particular attention to an individual's coping strategies. She references ideas from a variety of psychotherapy theories but predominately Acceptance and Commitment Theory (ACT). In ACT, the approach to addressing distress starts with "coming to terms with" our current position and in choosing and practicing a particular disposition toward our problems.
The work that is done in these sessions is fulfilling and meaningful to her. She appreciates both the fear-of and strength-in vulnerability and is privileged to see the resilience of the human spirit daily in the people with whom she works.
