Cara Wecht, MSW, LISW-S


I began working in the mental health field in 2013 and came to Alta in November 2019 as an outpatient therapist.  I am a member of Alta’s trauma team.  I have completed basic training in EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy as well as training in Trauma, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  I am experienced in working with children, adolescents, and adults coping with past traumas, grief, anxiety, depression, and other issues.  I have also worked with children and adolescents in out-of-home placements such as foster care or residential.  I earned a Master of Social Work degree from Youngstown State University in 2013.  I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW-S) in the State of Ohio.
