My name is Austin Chase, MSW, ACSW. I was born and raised in Northern California and currently reside in Chico, CA. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from University of California, Los Angeles, and my Master of Social Work from Simmons University. I enjoy sports, travel, and the outdoors in general, especially being near water. I became a therapist to walk with people as they strive for change, to better themselves and their families, and to cope through life’s ups and downs. I have a background working with clients struggling with addiction, adjustment to disaster, trauma, loss, and family preservation; but most importantly, I meet clients where they are at and in our time, work with them to achieve their goals.  My biggest accomplishment is being a father to my beautiful son Auggie who gives me never ending inspiration. I will be working with Dunamis Wellness as an Associate Clinical Social worker and open to see clients at the Chico location beginning August 10th, 2022.
