Hello, My name is Pertina and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I would like to take the time to introduce myself to you. I have my Masters in Social Work from Syracuse University. My experience ranges from working with individuals diagnosed with Depression, Anxiety, Stress Management and Relationship Conflicts. I am a lifelong learner and believe that staying up to date with different Evidenced Based Treatment models to ensure you are receiving the best.
Therapy is all about you. You lead the way; I am here to just assist you on your journey. We will discuss the different items you would like to work on and together work towards your different goals. I utilize different evidence-based models but focus on more of an eclectic approach that is tailored to each individual person. An individual plan will be created solely for you.
I am a calm and open person. I am here for you to have a non-judgmental place to express yourself. I want you to always feel respected and to also to be able to honestly express your emotions. I am a true believer that therapy is all about you and I am here to assist you and provide support as needed.
