Susan Dowd Stone, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Englewood Cliffs
When women seek therapy, it is often related to feeling overwhelmed and discouraged by unresolved challenges in their lives. Good therapy gives causative insight, but GREAT therapy supports the change needed to reach cherished goals, break destructive patterns, maintain independence, and create a "life worth living". My work covers major life issues such as career and relationships problems, (divorce,separation), trauma, chronic or terminal illness, disordered eating, grief and loss (including child, fetal or newborn loss, the loss of partners and companion animals) and aging. Postpartum depression, life after baby, empty nesters and reproductive mental health issues are also areas of specialty.
As a psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral therapist (who is intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and certified in EMDR) I have helped countless women and their significant loved ones survive life's challenges more effectively. From late adolescence through the senior years, my practice focuses on issues unique to women.
As an award winning and nationally known clinician, advocate, author, educator (Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Silver School of Social Work at New York University), I have the training, dedication and expertise to guide you through life's most profound and delicate challenges, offering validation and healing in an atmosphere of compassion and encouragement.
