Melissa Prushik, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Woodbury
In my practice, I work to help my clients feel comfortable and understood. I believe there are no right or wrong thoughts or feelings. I will support you and I will not judge. My experience is diverse as I have worked with children, adolescents, individuals and families in various settings. My methods include evidence based treatments tailored by my keen intuition and my client's individual needs and goals. I find success with my client's utilizing cognitive-behavioral, client-centered and psycho-dynamic therapies. I am experienced in Trauma Focused CBT protocol as well.
I work with children ages 4 and up, teens and adults. My practice includes many who have experienced trauma, struggled with recent life changes and suffer from mood and/or anxiety disorders including school phobia/refusal. I have had great success connecting with, and helping children and adolescents with various behavior concerns.
The relationship established between a client and a therapist is essential for successful therapy. The trust and security I will work to build is what has allowed my client's to share the things they may have never told anyone before. I look forward to developing this type of relationship with you.
