Ellen Klaffky, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Huntington
You may be experiencing anxiety or depression and desire relief. Perhaps you feel confused and tired and you need help due to unpleasant thoughts and feelings? Many planned or unexpected events such as, marriage, parenting, gain or loss of employment, retirement, chronic illness, caregiving, and death of a loved one are just a few of life's stressful situations that cause suffering. If you want to commit to work for the relief you deserve. I want to help you. Call me. I provide a private, safe, and comfortable environment to address your needs and goal for living.
My method of practice is goal oriented. I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapies. CBT addresses thinking and behavior and psychodynamic supports gaining insight into issues that are causing discontent. I will help you reach your goals for living and find the relief deserve.
My mission is to assist those who will work with me to find ease in daily living. For over twenty years I have provided my extensive professional experiences in mental health clinics and private practice. I welcome the opportunity to meet you to discuss your goal and desire for relief.
