About

I’m Cassie Jewell, introvert, avid reader, and mental health expert. I currently live in the Washington, DC metro area. I hold a Master’s Degree in Community Counseling (with an undergrad in psychology) and I’m a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I’m also a licensed substance abuse treatment practitioner (LSATP).

I created this site because it’s always been a passion of mine to write. I’m not trying to promote a service; I just really, really like writing. And with a counseling background, I have stores of knowledge and experience that may be helpful to others.

Mind ReMake Project Mission Statement

Mind ReMake Project Values

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who should read this blog?

Anyone who is interested in mental health, wellness, and recovery. This site provides information for mental health professionals, consumers, and for individuals who hope to improve the quality of their lives.

How does this blog differ from other wellness blogs?

There are hundreds (if not more) of blogs about wellness and personal development; this blog is unique in that it’s backed by evidence-based practices and relevant studies.

Additionally, I’m a master’s level clinician with a background in research. I have experience working with adults with substance use disorders, personality disorders (such as borderline personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder), mood disorders, anxiety disorders, and schizophrenia spectrum disorders.

I have excellent clinical skills and a wealth of knowledge, which I’m happy to share. What’s more, I have personal experience with mental illness.

Mind ReMake Project includes personal accounts written by individuals who have struggled with mental illness and/or addiction. You will also find research-based posts, which include reference sections listing peer-reviewed journal articles.

My vision for Mind ReMake Project is to provide only new, accurate, and useful information. I also hope to provide knowledge and tools to help readers to better understand their disorders, to learn evidence-based practices for managing symptoms, and to feel supported and empowered.

A second vision for Mind ReMake Project is to dispel common myths about mental illness and substance use disorders. Misconceptions persist (despite a wealth of scientific research), which fuels stigma. This site is an advocacy site.

Lastly, Mind ReMake Project is a site for other mental health professionals. It’s a place for networking and for sharing resources and ideas.
