Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Tomasina!

Hello. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years of experience. I work with adults, adolescents, children, families, and couples.

My approach

I prefer to use an eclectic approach tailored to the unique needs of each client. I have been trained in a variety of modalities so I can be flexible and use what works best for each individual. These modalities include Attachment-based, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Compassion Focused, Dialectical (DBT), Culturally Sensitive, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Family Therapy, Group Therapy, Interpersonal, Mindfulness-Based, Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, Person-Centered, Play Therapy, Psychoanalytic, Trauma Focused, Strength-Based, and EMDR.

My focus

I work with individuals and couples dealing with a wide range of issues, including Addiction, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality, Career Counseling, Codependency, Coping Skills, Depression, Depersonalization/Derealization (DPDR), Domestic Violence, Dissociative Disorders, Divorce, Eating Disorders, Dual Diagnosis, Emotional Disturbance, Alcohol Use, Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD), Drug Abuse, Gender Identity, Hoarding, Grief, Infertility, Infidelity, Job Stress, LGBTQIA+, Transgender Issues, Trauma and PTSD, Women's Issues, Sexual Abuse, Weight Loss, Life Coaching, Mood Disorders, Life Transitions, and issues related to Pregnancy, Prenatal, and Postpartum periods.

My communication style

I pride myself on providing a warm and compassionate setting where my clients can feel comfortable and welcomed. I respect each individual's strengths, beliefs, and support systems, drawing from these to help the client achieve their goals.

My journey to mental healthcare

I earned my Master of Social Work degree and completed my clinical hours for licensure at Queens Children's Psychiatric (OMH - NYS), now known as NYCCC, located at 74-03 Commonwealth Blvd, Bellrose NY 11426.

My goals for you

My goal is to help you gain insight, develop coping strategies, improve relationships, and ultimately lead a more fulfilling life. I will provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences as we work together towards your unique goals.

My first session with you

During our first session, we will discuss what brings you to therapy, your background, and your goals. This will help me understand your unique situation and how I can best support you. We will also discuss the therapy process, confidentiality, and any questions you may have. My aim is to create a collaborative relationship where you feel heard, understood, and empowered to make positive changes in your life.
