Debra Krefsky, LCSW, R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Garden City
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with offices in Garden City and Westbury, N.Y. I have over fifteen years of experience helping people make positive changes in their lives. I work with adults, children, adolescents and couples. As a practicing psychotherapist I help people resolve relationship, work, job related and financial concerns; family/parenting issues; depression; anxiety; and stress management.
I work with each person collaboratively to address immediate as well as long standing issues and concerns with a focus on understanding underlying causes. I help people gain insight into their situations, work through obstacles, and move towards their goals.
I provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment for a variety of clients, from children and adolescents to the elderly with a specific focus on depression, anxiety, family, relationship, adjustment issues and loss and bereavement. I believe that everyone has the potential to live a happy and fulfilling life.
