Lauren Gargano, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Finding a therapist can feel like an overwhelming process! Once you've decided on one, it's important to feel comfortable and supported during your time together. I provide a warm and welcoming environment in which you and I can work together towards greater understanding and improved communication. Overtime, your enhanced understanding of yourself and your environment will allow for greater choices, better decisions and finer communication skills. We will collaborate to tackle whatever issues come your way.
I have post-graduate training in psychotherapy & psychoanalysis. This specialized training has prepared me to lead us through exploring your present and past, in order to make sense of your world. I'm currently the Assistant Clinical Director of The Training Institute for Mental Health, the post-graduate training institute where I completed my training.
*Your insurance plan may include out of network coverage, which would allow you to engage in therapy at a significantly lower cost. I can assist you in obtaining information about your eligibility, and if eligible, provide you with the necessary documentation to make for a hassle-free process.
