Hello and welcome to my profile! My name is Staici. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with fifteen years of clinical experience. My passion and drive to help people originated when I was a teenager and my mother received a diagnosis of Schizophrenia. I set out to essentially "save" my mom and others suffering from mental health issues. During my professional studies, I took every psychology and social service course available because I developed a fascination with how the mind works and how it effects human behavior. In 2007, I received a Graduate degree in Social Work from Fordham University with a clinical specialization in working with children and their families and was awarded a Children First Scholarship . The vast majority of my work experience consists of working with children, teens and young adults with varying challenges ranging from: trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem/bullying, Asperger's/ADHD, coping with transitions and loss, as well as serious mental illness. I have worked in outpatient mental health clinics, residential treatment programs, schools and in homes. I am skilled in utilizing different treatment applications and believe strongly in multi -systemic treatment approaches. Let's face it, being a parent isn't easy and being a teenager (especially in this day and age) isn't easy either!) I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Anastasia Papadopoulos. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
Ive been a client of Staici for 8 months or so now, and I really can't say enough positive sentiments about her and my experience. I have a few layers of items I wanted to work through - grief, loss, boundaries, trauma - and somehow she works and supports me through all of them with a really bubbly, friendly, open personality and always gives tactical steps/feedback for you to work into your daily life to move forward in steps that really dont feel overwhelming. All of the rave reviews she has are absolutely correct, she is the best!
Staici did a fantastic job of identifying my needs and adapting her practice to my specific experience. She was excellent and providing a safe space for me to share what I needed to as well as challenging my current thoughts. I cannot recommend her enough!
The therapist is great! My son is waiting for every session and very engage.
I’ve been seeing Staici for almost a year and she has been incredibly supportive of my journey in learning how to cope with grief and lean on my community. She is attentive and remembers things that have been shared in past sessions so I always felt that I was heard in every session. She is deeply compassionate when she asks difficult but important questions and meets you where you are.
Staci has been helping me stay sober and achieve my goals and I’m very grateful
She has great energy and I love how positive she has been. Looking forward to continuing
Very helpful and listens with attentive care. I highly recommend for various mental specialties. I am very happy with her and how she tells you the hard truth with sympathetic deliveries.
She has helped me so much in such a short period of time. She always listens and I leave every session feeling better than before.
She’s absolutely amazing and has helped me understand many things about my brain. I absolutely love her.
Anastasia has allowed me to start understanding where my anxiety comes from and how to start working on myself. Its only been 2 sessions and already feel amazing. I wish we had more time, thats how much I love her. Would recommend 100% to anyone.
Staici has made it easy for me to express my feelings in a non-judgmental and safe environment. There are things I do not feel comfortable talking about with anyone else, and how she has responded to things has been nothing short of amazing. Professional, warming, and understanding are just a few words I have felt when talking to her. It's a great feeling knowing I have someone like Staici to go to with my problems, and if everyone had someone like her in their corner, they'd be in safe hands.
She has made me feel so comfortable around her and she is judgment free witch I love! She gets me to try things and knows how far to push. She is amazing.
She is so sweet and funny! I have loved our sessions so far.
I have had my fair share of therapists, and have never been able to completely let go and be honest with any of them. I felt a connection with Anastasia almost immediately. I typically tell a few white lies on my first session, just as habit. Tonight was no different and very early in the conversation i gave false information. As the conversation carried on, I paused, confessed, apologized,, came clean and retracted my previous statement as false.. I did this because i felt comfortable and safe for the first time, ever.. i so desperately want to have an honest relationship with my therapist, and feel I can do that easily and completely now. I would highly recommend Anastasia. She had all the qualifications and background (knowledge) that I was looking for. And I am very optimistic I will be successful in making the changes and improvements in myself that I want for a netter stronger me with her in my corner. 45 minutes and an extremely happy client!!. Very simple process (Betterhealth), I found and matched the therapist that best suited my needs, and I am so happy with BetterHealth and the quality and service they provide. Yay!
