Hello and congratulations for taking the first step towards taking good care of yourself and achieving your goals.
My name is Desiree and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in New York. I have been providing counseling services for seven years, most of which has been with with adults living with a mental health diagnosis (such as Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia) and addiction concerns. In addition, I have helped clients cope with stress, trauma, relationship issues, life transitions, self-confidence, LGBTQ concerns, bereavement, employment/school-related distress, self-injury, issues related to aging and/or physical disabilities, impulse control difficulties, compulsive hoarding, families/friends of addicted persons, and more.
I am trained in several evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior, Attachment Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, Group Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Harm Reduction. Though, in line with person-centered and humanistic therapy, I firmly believe that each of my clients are an expert on their life and deserve a warm unconditional space of acceptance to process their thoughts and feelings. I tailor my work with each person to match the most effective treatment with their personality type and personal preference.
Let's get started by talking about what I can do to help you today.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Family, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related, Eating, Sleeping, Anger, Career, Bipolar
