Under Clinical Supervision

Mr. Christopher Lemaire, Licensed Master Social Worker, 112369 is practicing under the supervision of De'An Roper (Texas, LCSW, 23146) at Realistic Expectations, PLLC.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I have a disability called Auditory Processing Disorder (or ASD for short). It's basically like ADHD for the ears; I have a hard time hearing if I can't read someone's lips. I may occasionally ask you to repeat yourself and I will take some notes during our session because what you say is very important to me.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

If you've ever seen Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, then you already understand a bit about how therapy works. I can help you make a game plan for digging into your closet, but it's up to you to decide what to keep and fold into who you want to be. Starting therapy can feel overwhelming, like piling every clothing item you own on your bed. However, being in a safe space and seeing everything laid out can help you choose what you'd like to change or embrace. And I for one am honored to be a part of that journey. So let's get to unpacking together.

Education

University of Texas at Arlington, Master of Social Work, Mental Health and Substance Misuse, 2023

I am a member of the LGBTQ+ NAADAC subcommittee (a national organization of substance use counselors) where we are writing the clinical standards to best serve LGBTQ+ folks in treatment for substances.

Work History

I have experience working with youth in schools, foster care shelters for adolescents, and drug/alcohol harm reduction programs at the University of Texas at Arlington. I have a passion for working with adolescents through the roller coaster of life transitions, as well as helping adolescents and adults tap into their autonomy, self-love, find their strengths, and accomplish their goals. I especially love working with folks on harm reduction, which is basically helping people determine how to do what they want to do (whether that be coming out, building community, sexual exploration, drug use, etc.) to their own level of comfort and safety at their own pace. Harm reduction isn't about convincing someone to be completely abstinent, but about helping them make their own informed decisions.
