Hello! My name is Andrew and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over four years of experience providing therapy services. I hold a Master's Degree in Social Work from Fordham University and an undergraduate degree in Social Work from Seton Hall University. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including: inpatient psychiatric hospitalization, crisis response, intensive outpatient programing, and traditional outpatient programing. I have worked with clients across the lifespan including children/adolescents, families, and adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, family issues, OCD, ADHD, existential issues, and substance use . I also recognize and am specifically trained in treating trauma in both adolescents and adults.
I pride myself on the experience that I have had working with both teens and their families. I have worked with teenagers who present with mood disorders, self-harm, substance use issues, criminals behaviors, and opposition to authority figures. My main goal in working with adolescents is to build a solid relationship. Is is through this positive relationship that I am able to begin the true work in reducing negative behaviors. I also believe that when working with an adolescents, you are also working with the family and parents. I utilize a structural family therapy approach when working with adolescents and their families. We together will find a treatment option, coping strategies, and focus for empowering the entire family unit to move forward in a positive, and healthy life!
