Cody Harmon, MSW, LCSW, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing therapeutic services out of our Monroeville office. Cody, while having had his education completed early in life, is a very tenured and seasoned social worker who views everything with a glass half full; often he references healing and the process that’s available to anyone and everyone, regardless of circumstance. Cody’s main theories of practice include Gestalt therapy, solution and problem solving approaches, psychodynamic, Jungian theory, socratic questioning, reframing, distress tolerance and identifying difficult situations, and homework to establish the therapeutic relationship and work within the scope of the problem. Cody looks forward to meeting you to help assist and support you in any way, shape, or form possible.
Education & Experience
Cody completed his Bachelors of Science in Social Work at Shepherd University. Here, Cody was exposed to one of the top rated BSW programs. He became well versed in micro, mezzo, and macro practice; effectively he became aware of problems that exist at the individual and societal levels including the impacts in every realm. Cody completed his Masters of Social Work at the University of Pittsburgh where he honed his clinical skills with a top 10 MSW program. He received the Mental Health certificate, which provides clients and patients the knowledge that Cody is aware of the impact of mental health on each individual and how to address these issues.
Cody’s experience is nothing less than eclectic. He started his experience with his BSW internship at Potomac Center in Hagerstown, Maryland. Here, Cody was exposed to dually diagnosed IDD/MH patients who were found incompetent to stand trial or not criminally responsible at the time of their crimes. Cody was tasked with providing therapeutic interventions, creating social histories, and networking to gain least restrictive community placements for these individuals.
His MSW program internship was spent with Homewood Children’s Village which was affiliated with the Center of Race and Social Problems. Cody spent much of his time interacting with at risk youth in the inner cities of Pittsburgh; he provided therapeutic interventions and did a qualitative analysis of restorative practices. He learned of the multiple biopsychosocial factors that impact an individual at a very early age.
Out of grad school, Cody found himself in medical social work at UPMC St. Margaret. He was tasked with safely discharge planning individuals, providing therapeutic interventions once again, and attending to any crisis situation that arose within the hospital. He was the only responder on the social work team delegated with this task. From the hospital, Cody moved to dialysis with Davita then eventually DCI, Inc. Cody has a very advanced background with chronic illness both professionally and personally. He was able to hone his skills and appropriately provide interventions for his patients and effectively impact their overall well-being.
Cody is excited to transition into private practice, where he feels he can truly utilize his natural personality and professional training to impact individuals, families, couples, or whoever feels they might need an adequate support system.
