About Me

Hello here is summary of my experience and approach to therapeutic counseling;
My experience as a clinical social worker for over 25 years includes working in the prevention and treatment of family violence, victim advocacy for survivors of sexual assault and to assist individuals experiencing depression, loss and grief. I have assisted individuals and families struggling with communication and conflict issues and provided counseling for youth as part of court ordered diversion related to behavior problems in school and at home, truancy, substance abuse, adjustment problems divorce and family separations.
My approach to counseling is client centered and solution focused in a collaborative approach to assisting clients in identifying key concerns in an atmosphere based in mutual respect. I take a holistic approach to therapy taking in account environmental, cultural and familial influences identifying client strengths and motivation for change. Treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy with focus in identifying and changing negative thinking patterns, incorporating techniques such as mindfulness and meditation.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Frank Pavone. 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.

Frank helps me identify steps within solutions. He doesn't judge me but offers honest feedback about patterns he sees.

Frank is very attentive to my concerns, and is very good at dissecting my struggles. Clear paths forward and ways accomplish and set my goals.

Frank has been a really good help to us. He is a great listener and understands easily our views. He makes us feel very confortable talking and he creates a perfect relaxing atmosphere to get the conversation going. He doesn't judge and makes us feel suported when expressing our opinion. We both ended up loving the sessions with him even when one of us was very reticent about therapy at the start. We have a lot to thank him for.

He's been very helpful and polite. Takes my issues and experiences seriously. Works with me at my own pace. So far I'm actually looking forward to our conversations and I'm sure it will stay that way.

Only 2 sessions in but my daughter likes Frank. I thought she wanted a female therapist but Frank obviously won her over and that's not easy to do. So far so good!

Work with me!
