Life can be tough. Not having anyone to talk to about struggles you are experiencing can make it tougher. Congrats on this first step!
Clinical Social Worker in Brooklyn, NY
My internships with veterans and my experience working in an inpatient psychiatric hospital in a military wellness unit gave me the experience I need to treat veterans, police, firefighters and anyone with trauma and PTSD. My hands on experience in the aftermath of 9/11 spending 2 months in ground zero and then forming a not for profit group who went to firehouses gave me additional invaluable experience. I am trained in CPT & exposure therapy which has great success in this area.
I am an expert in the field of substance abuse. I have great knowledge of not only the 12 step program but also SMART Recovery which is a great alternative if 12 step hasn't worked for you in the past! I believe that the journey to sobriety if often not a straight road and allowances must be made while people come to terms with their own addictions.
I have had extensive experience working with those who have panic disorder and I am proficient in exposure therapies, ACT therapy and REBT (all extremely effective and useful with panic disorder). I work with clients "where they are at" and with "baby steps" together we can get you to the point where you can manage and control your panic attacks and often have long periods (even years!) of no panic attacks. You may reach these goals without the use of medication!
