Susan Grathwohl Dingle, LCSW, CASAC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Southold
You are pro-active, and insightful enough to know when to seek support. A situation may feel like a crisis, but maybe what's needed is a way of re-framing the situation. An apparent crisis might contain a challenge, an opportunity for growth...if only you could find some clarity, explore the ambivalence, handle the uncertainty. You would like to talk with someone who listens deeply and offers a fresh perspective. You're ready to consider self-knowledge as a journey, but you'd like someone to help you set the right course.
I specialize in providing solution-based therapy using an eclectic, evidence-based approach derived from CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing and mindfulness. The client's goals focus the direction of our work. My approach is holistic, using creative strategies to address family of origin issues, including alcoholism, abuse and trauma.
My approach has benefited people who are at a turning point in their lives. My clients have grown in confidence and courage, and have been able to accomplish their goals quickly by learning how to create new possibilities for action where previously they had felt blocked.
