Leora Garritano

Leora is a compassionate and skilled social worker and therapist who graduated from NYU Silver School of Social Work with expertise in addressing a variety of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, relationships issues and parenting. Many clients would agree, working together with a skilled therapist is what provided them, maybe for the first time in their lives, to have more clarity and awareness about their life’s destination.

Leora’s therapeutic style tends to provide a balanced, non-judgmental, objective yet honest perspective. Working mostly with adult clients, she actively engages her patients using various cognitive techniques to gain awareness of underlying sources of emotional blockages, and seeking ways to heal both old and recent traumas. In her individual sessions, she tends to impart an empathic understanding and invites her clients to work through their emotional, cognitive and relational difficulties to better themselves and reduce symptoms of anxiety, worry, confusion, social withdrawal, preoccupations and addictive behaviors.
