Welcome! and thank you for your time in learning about me. My name is Nadia Paloma. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have extensive experience providing psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults. I have assisted clients in overcoming specific symptoms related to mental health and emotional/psychological issues; and guiding each individual in solving difficulties in personal, social, occupational, family and interpersonal situations.
As a clinician I have proficiency on offering the highest quality of individualized care; by helping identifying individual client needs, strengths, support system, resources, and psycho-education; in order to assure each individual can begin to feel supported, encouraged motivated to improve symptoms and adjust/cope with environmental stressors.
Through the application of fundamental empirical and holistic approaches each person can be assisted in gaining the knowledge and tools necessary for taking important steps for reaching his or her highest potential and having a happier and self-fulfilled life. The purpose of therapy is to help each individual in improving important aspects of his or her life (mood, behavior, relationships, communication, socialization, home/work/family dynamics and daily functioning); through the utilization of evidence-based treatment interventions (Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Solution-focused, Mindfulness, guided imagery, guided meditation, strength-based, person-centered, and empowerment-based approaches) for assisting clients towards the development of healthier coping skills, highlighting individual strengths and resources; and guiding each client in setting concrete/measurable short and long-term goals/objectives for achieving positive outcomes and having an optimal level of overall physical and psychological well-being. Outpatient therapy and mental health services are a passion for me; thus, I continue to assist each individual seeking support and guidance, as I am committed to the helping profession and serving the community.
