Doris Bertocci, LCSW –R

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, BCD

I view psychotherapy as a confidential partnership held together by a mutual trust, courage and commitment to understand what has been embarrassing, confusing, and/or painful in your life. My extensive experience and psychodynamic foundation help me "listen faster" (understand alot more in less time, which I then share with you). I provide a safe, emotionally engaging process (not just "cognitive-behavioral" information). Typical comments: "None of my previous therapists ever connected the dots like this"; "You never gave up on me". I treat those I am certain I can help, provide referrals as needed. 3rd OFFICE: Pleasantville Diverse practice, told my wisdom is evident in my clinical work. Expertise: college/young adult mental health (UG/grad students). Specialties: mid-life concerns; problems with adult children; high-conflict divorce, custody litigation; indecision re: job/relationships. Specialty in the treatment of adopted adolescents, young adults/adults - Northstar Consulting Associates. My therapeutic "style" might best be described as "interactive listening." I work primarily within a psychodynamic framework but also cognitively (intellectual/psychoeducation as well as emotional understanding and changes). Am exceptionally knowledgeable about resources to recommend, as needed, and refer to colleagues with clinical specialties in areas other than mine.
