LCSW

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in New York State. I have more than 21 year experience in the mental health field. Most of my experience has been working with children/youth; however, in the last 8 years I have worked also with the adult population. I received my master degree from New York University in social work and a bachelor in psychology from College of Mount Saint. I started to work in the mental health fields before I obtain both of these degrees. In fact, my first experience working in this field was as a member of the children mobile mental health crisis team. I have dedicated more than half of my life to work in the mental health field in the community and office. I particularly work with family with children/young adult that are consider to be severe emotionally disturbed and are at risk of being place out of home due to their mental health illness, trauma, childhood diagnosis such as ADHD and others, Depression, Anxiety, Self-Esteem, Bipolar, ,and psychosis, Anger, Emotional Control. My treatment approach has been to meet the client where they are at, build on their strengths and rather laid back with a foundation of building a therapeutic relationship and using an eclectic theoretical approach based on the their needs and styles. In my 20 + years of experience, I have and continues to participate in a series of therapeutic training techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focus – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT, Solution Focused, others modalities to treat trauma other than TF-CBT, Grief therapy, etc. In my professional life, my greater accomplishment has been to see people young and old to strengthen themselves and powerful to free themselves from a debilitated illness and or situation that has taken over their life and make their own life choices.
