Ellen J Carlino, LICSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Hadley
There's a delicate balance between accepting oneself as you are and making the changes you deeply desire. Cultivating quiet and stillness allows you to listen to your inner knowing and the answers you are seeking. My own spiritual practice informs me as I honor and support your personal journey. What's most essential for healing is the relationship between client and therapist. Clients have described their experience with me as deeply caring, respectful, irreverent, collaborative, both gentle and direct, grounding and real.
Integrative psychotherapy provides a multifaceted approach. Somatic Experiencing offers heightened awareness of the nervous system's role in healing trauma. Skills training, including DBT, supports effective management of intense emotional experiences and relationship challenges. Mindfulness and goals clarification are some tools used to know ourselves more deeply.
I listen carefully, meeting you from a place that is heart centered and engaged, asking questions that inspire curiosity to know yourself. We all have an innate ability to heal, and with genuine connection and support, it happens naturally.
