Pio J. Cabada, LCSW-R, RYT, MPA, RDT, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
The fact that you are here, tells me that you want to work on your "self". You want to see your truth, become stronger, and earn the ability to become self-reliant. Congratulations on taking these steps. You are one step closer to beginning your journey. I have been in the helping profession since 1987. My objective is to help people create positive changes in their lives. I provide a relaxed atmosphere, use modern clinical concepts, and work collaboratively with each individual, couple, or group. Individuals will hone in on their strengths for their personal growth and transformation.
Experience working with PTSD, job/school related stress, sexual addiction & trauma, substance abuse, bereavement, relationships, cultural/immigrant, aging, anger, LGBTQ issues, career and life transitions, and MH challenges. I integrate many of the well-known evidenced based practice modalities and theories, as well as wellness and yoga principles within the framework of psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Therapy is hard work, but it is the journey that is worth taking. With honest self-reflection, being mindfully engaged, and taking positive actions, you are enabled to live your life more authentically, communicate more honestly, and achieve greater satisfaction in your personal and work relationships.
