Joey Cantrell


Hello! My name is Joey, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Work Associate Clinician here at Born to Bend and I look forward to working together. 

For those who struggle with feelings of isolation, shame or guilt, existential dread, or a lack of purpose, you are already on your way to feeling better because you are here. If you’re feeling like you’re having difficulties connecting or communicating with others, adjusting to life changes, focusing, or controlling your emotions, sometimes waiting it out just doesn’t cut it. Whether you’ve dealt with this your whole life or it’s a new development – I’m here to help you find relief.

You are the expert on your life, and this is a collaborative work where you are empowered to make the changes you seek. I aim to provide a safe space where you can feel supported, validated, and accepted. Social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusivity are all fundamental in my practice and all are welcome, especially those who have ever felt overlooked.

I work with children, adolescents, and adults using evidence-based techniques from CBT, ACT, polyvagal theory, and more. As serious as this work can be, I also like to incorporate fun, humor, and creativity whenever possible. As someone who has learned to embrace their inner geek, I encourage everyone to be their authentic selves.

Population: Children, Adolescents, Young Adults and Adults

I look forward to working with you! To schedule please give us a call at (828) 407-0355 or email at
