Sandra Bernabei, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I am experienced in the work of liberation from the tyranny of addiction, depression and anxiety. I also work with people who simply do not get along. I'm happily married and successfully parented three children. As a Liberation Psychotherapist, I believe "the degree to which you assume 100% responsibility for yourself is the degree to which you will be free!"
My life's work has been in the field of relationship healing, addictions and recovery, I have over 28 years experience as a psychotherapist. I am the past President of the NASW-NYC Chapter and the director of college counseling centers. I've been in private practice for 30 years.
My therapy style in interactive and highly relational. We work as partners in creating a structure to support your goals and vision for a fulfilled life not only for you but also for the one's you care about.
