I BelieveThe most important part of my work is understanding a person in a clear way and without judgment. From this point on, the client and I collaborate together to help the client feel better.
About Letizia Adorno
Because of my background, I am sensitive to immigration/acculturation issues and their impact on generations within a family. I provide treatment in English and Spanish but see a diversity of people from varied ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds.
I graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and took science courses given my interest in how mind, body and emotions work together. I eventually completed my graduate Social Work degree at the Columbia University School of Social Work in 1998. My interest in a broad approach to helping others feel their best led me to include emotional, behavioral and physical treatment methods. These methods are drawn from traditional talk therapy, DBT, EMDR, mind-body approaches and Mindfulness. In addition to psychotherapy, I offer Reiki (http://www.reikitherapist.me/), a powerful therapy that helps reduce stress, achieve a stronger sense of wellbeing and enhances the treatment already provided by medical doctors.
Also, I have been a guest lecturer at the graduate Social Work schools at Hunter College and Fordham University. I also sit on the Training Committee and am a faculty member at the Trauma Studies Center Integrated Training Program at The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy (ICP).
My post graduate training includes:
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Training – completed levels 1, 2 and 3 with Laurel Parnell, PhD
Training in Traumatic Stress Studies at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy.
Primary Practicum of Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) at the Albert Ellis Institute
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Intensive Training (DBT) ten-day intensive course completed via Behavioral Tech
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy coursework at The National Institute for the Psychotherapies
Reiki training via The Open Center
