Zuleyka Lopez Lisojo

(LICSW, TPSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Massachusetts with 8 years of experience working as a behavior therapist and school social worker. I have worked with teenagers with concerns of depression, anxiety, social anxiety, relationship issues, ASD, ADHD, life transitions, and others. I also helped children, teenagers, and adults who have experienced sexual, physical and emotional abuse. I have helped parents with setting healthy boundaries while still providing love and care to their teenagers.

Teenagers are at a very complex stage and they often need someone to talk to that will be nonjudgmental. Over the years I worked in a pediatric department working along medical providers to improve children and teenagers health. I also provided family therapy to children with severe emotional disturbance. And currently work in the educational system with 7th and 8th graders.

I use a holistic and strength based approach to help teenagers develop the strategies and tools they'll need to achieve mental, physical and spiritual growth. I believe that we all have strengths that can be used. For me spiritually has been very important in life, such as family, and friends. Together we will find what those strengths are and use them to achieve your teen's goals. Some of the therapeutic modalities I've used to help people are CBT, EMDR, solution focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, family system therapy and others.

Zuleyka has been a tremendous help since the very first session. She has given me practical exercises to help with very specific issues I'm having problems with. She helps me see different perceptions of issues. She's kind and gets to the point quickly, gently but firmly.

Zuleyka has been immensely helpful. She's given me multiple ideas and techniques in how to manage my stress and anxiety, as well as how to find motivation for tasks that I know I need to complete.

I’ve only had two sessions with Zuleyka so far, and I already feel confident in where we are going. I feel I can trust her and open up no problem, which is something that I haven’t experienced in the past. I’m so hopeful for what’s next thanks to her!

Zuleyka is wonderful. She responds quickly always and is so understanding and empathetic. She also provides helpful tactical techniques to help me deal with my problems. I’m so happy to have found her.
