About me

Hello! Thank you for reading my profile page. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for over 15 years and have 5 years of clinical experience.
Seeking counseling is a big first step. I believe in working as a partnership with clients . You are the expert about yourself. I do not believe in a “cookie cutter” approach.
Some of the modalities that I use are client centered , CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) , ACT therapy (acceptance and commitment )and solution focused.
The most important aspect of therapy is being nonjudgmental and creating an environment where clients can feel open to discuss issues.
I have worked in various settings including outpatient counseling, substance abuse treatment, and healthcare.
My experience includes depression, anxiety, substance abuse issues, domestic violence, and relationship issues.

Kristina DeGaetano is an amazingly supportive therapist, I feel like I am speaking to someone who expresses genuine concern over my well-being and is always willing to listen to anything I have to say.

She is the most attentive and caring therapist ever! I have made so much progress working with her and could not imagine where I would be without her!
