Janis Hoffman, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Commack
Are you stressed? Overwhelmed? Feeling like you have nobody to talk to or will understand you? Taking the steps to make changes in your life is the beginning of enhancing your well being. I strongly believe in a teamwork approach. We will problem solve and create your own treatment plan as unique as you are. One plan or course of treatment certainly does not fit all, and I look forward to finding what works for you. I have experience working with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, bereavement and loss.
I have been in the field for over 15 years working with mental health disorders and substance abuse issues. I provide services to children, tweens, teens and adults.
I am diverse, creative and have an empathetic ear. I look forward to joining your journey and assisting you in reaching your goals.My office is comfortable and easily accessable.
