Nathaniel Smith, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Pleasantville
Is your relationship with yourself or important people around you diminished by problematic thoughts, feelings or behaviors? Are you or your child having difficulty reaching goals in work, school, family or other significant areas of your life? With over 20 years of clinical experience helping adults, couples and children overcome such issues, I bring a thoughtful, sensitive, accepting and thorough approach to the work. I have been effective working with a wide range of ages and backgrounds on issues such as depression, anger management, anxiety, interpersonal conflict, life transitions, obsessive thoughts, bipolar disorder and many others.
What are the unique life circumstances that you or your child have faced? Are their important parts of you that have not been sufficiently seen, heard or respected? I engage my clients in a mutual process of inquiry so as to improve self-understanding, self-esteem and satisfaction with life.
I have advanced training in treating adults with early trauma and losses and with the unique techniques, such as play therapy, necessary for effective child psychotherapy. Please feel free to contact me so that we can explore the possibility or our working together.
