Andrea Rawicz, MBA, MSW, LSW
"I can." "I'm capable." "I have the capacity." My goal as a therapist is to enable clients to internalize these statements as they use their strengths to help them cope with whatever difficulties they are enduring. I view the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process. Through our relationship, I will learn about your strengths and challenges and help to bring you an awareness of both. Equally important is reducing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and any other roadblocks that get in the way of your relationships or of achieving your aspirations in life.
I work with individuals, couples, and families. I have treated clients for anger management, anxiety, stress management, depression, substance abuse, as well as relationship and communication issues. I recently received formal training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and I find that it dovetails well with my interest in helping clients challenge the negative assumptions and/or limitations about themselves. I believe clients are stronger and more capable of change than they think they are.
I also assist clients as they change their career/vocational focus. Having worked in corporate America, I am uniquely suited in facilitating this process for clients facing these career transitions. I look forward to helping you identify and achieve your therapeutic goals.
I am also proficient in Spanish and Portuguese.
