My name is Gerard, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have been serving clients from all walks of life within the social services arena for the last 21 years. Beginning in New York City and now residing in sunny central Florida, I endeavor in what I strongly believe is my life’s calling in helping improve the overall quality of life for others. With a blend of genuine care and compassion, as well as a keen use of clinical training I received while attending New York University, I am committed to your desire for whatever change you feel is needed in your life. I provide a supportive, non-judgmental, and client-centered atmosphere.
My areas of speciality are anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, parenting challenges, LGBTQ+ matters, and family issues. To help tackle these issues, I use the scientifically-supported approaches of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Motivational Interviewing Technique, and Narrative Therapy.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better. I look forward to having the honor of working with you to help meet any needs you may have
