Brett E Herb, LCSW
Brett E. Herb, LCSW has been in clinical practice for the past 25 years as both a psychotherapist and as a clinical and administrative manager for various behavioral health programs. Mr. Herb received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Delaware in 1992. He graduated with his Master of Social Work degree from Widener University in 1994, and received his license in clinical social work in 1996. For well over a decade, Mr. Herb has dedicated the bulk of his psychotherapy practice to working with adolescents and adults who suffer with Gender Dysphoria.
At ChristianaCare, Mr. Herb works exclusively with the transgender and gender non-conforming population whose primary goal in therapy is to explore their gender identity, and in some cases, to take steps towards medical treatment to relieve the symptoms of gender dysphoria. Mr. Herb believes in the Standards of Care set forth by the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH). He believes that the gender therapist’s and medical provider(s) role is to support the client in their gender identification and not to be gatekeepers for medically necessary treatment. Mr. Herb has presented many workshops on gender dysphoria and on the clinical treatment of transgender identifying individuals to medical providers, therapists, school counselors, and to community and professional organizations, both locally and nationally. He is a member of WPATH, the National Association of Social Workers, and the Delaware Psychological Association. Mr. Herb is a candidate for the newly created WPATH gender therapist certification.
