About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (PA) with more than has more than 25 years of experience as a Mental Health Therapist. I hold a Doctorate of Social Work, which was completed in October 2019. I treat children, adults, and families - specializing in trauma, anxiety, autism, and substance abuse from a strengths perspective. I have over 200 hours of specialized training in treating trauma and abuse, with completed certifications in autism, as well as substance abuse.

I have helped many patients with many concerns over the past 25 years. I treat from a holistic approach - body, mind, and spirit. Research states that treatment should include physical, mental, emotional, culture, religion, spirituality, and everything that makes you who you are.

"Holistic" has become somewhat of a buzzword. Let me describe what holistic means to me. It means that counseling will not fix a thyroid problem. Holistic means that a problem in one area of your life will affect every area of your life.

For example, let's talk about depression. Sometimes, people do not have depression. Instead, they might need to work at forgiving themselves or someone else; or maybe they just need hope that life will get better. Alternatively, they might have an underlying medical condition. Sometimes, we just need help to grieve the loss of a dearly loved person or a beloved animal.

I help people to find healthy coping skills, people to trust, and ways to live life to the fullest.

Written on Jan 10, 2024 after therapy with Victor for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Dr. Manocchio is a life changer. He truly takes the time to listen and understand what I’m going through and helps to make my problems / issues feel not so heavy or abnormal. He always has worksheets and vignettes at hand to help me understand situations better and to enable myself to heal and work on myself. I’ve learned so much in just a few weeks and what I have learned in therapy comes up in conversation within my social circle and has helped others as well!
