Altagracia Santana, LCSW
I am a bi-lingual, bi-cultural Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and I use evidence – based treatment to manage anxiety, depression, trauma and distress caused by life stressors. I work with young adults, adults across the life span and couples facing relationship conflicts. I also work with individuals and family members affected by substance use and co-dependence issues. I am a compassionate, empathetic and non-judgmental, with over 15 years of experience helping others. Each client is different. I begin with a thorough assessment, and then together, my client and I tailor a treatment plan of action.
I use an integrated approach that combines behavioral and psychodynamic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Brief Psychotherapy; Behavioral Activation, Emotional Focus Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Trauma Focused Treatment.
Allow me to come alongside you on your journey towards overall wellness. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and therapist for over 12 years, I have learned that progress is made when a trusting and therapeutic partnership is established. Your story matters and deserves to be told. It is my goal to provide an environment where you feel safe and comfortable to be yourself as well as an environment that promotes reflection and growth. I provide online therapy sessions in both English and Spanish and specialize in working with children, adults, couples and families in the areas of stress management, anxiety, depression, and relational difficulties. I look forward to assisting you in identifying your strengths as well as supporting you towards your goals.
