STEPHANANIE QUIROGA Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LCSW, LCADC
In our fast-paced world, it is easy to feel stressed, lonely and confused. The question then becomes how do I navigate through these emotions and who can I trust to help me process my fears, doubts and deep secrets without judgement? With that in mind, it is my objective that every patient will walk into my room and know that they have someone that will listen, connect, empathize and encourage growth. As a licensed clinical social worker, I use an eclectic approach while treating depression, anxiety, substance abuse, low self-esteem, grief, stress and relationship conflict.
My experience spans from working in an outpatient psychiatric unit to a partial care program, working with individuals who suffer from mood disorders and substance abuse. Currently, I work in a NCI treatment facility with cancer patients. I am certified in supervising LSW’s for their clinical hours.
I am fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese and embrace all cultural backgrounds. My belief is that everyone has the strength to change and possesses the key to solving his or her problems. I want to be a therapist that conjures your inner strength and confidence and I look forward in guiding you through this journey of reflection and acceptance.
