Welcome! My name is Nechama Willner. I have devoted my professional career to providing therapy for young adults and adults with a Masters degree in Social Work from Touro College. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in trauma, depression and anxiety. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings and combine my down to earth and compassionate approach with a strength-based perspective to enable each client to thrive. I am passionate about helping others successfully navigate and overcome challenges.
I once worked with a client for about six months who struggled with an addictive behavior. Through our work together, they were able to face their fears and become sober.
I work from a client-centered approach. Together, we will set goals and take steps to achieve them.
The first session is geared to helping the client feel comfortable and safe within the session. My honest and open communication style coupled with my sincerity and compassion I strive to make each client feel empowered to open up and share of themselves.
I have always been interested in helping others and seeing those that struggle, succeed.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
My therapeutic style/approach to therapy is eclectic. I value blending components from different approaches to tailor the session according to each client's needs. I am passionate about using psychoanalysis to help others grow and change by discovering their unconscious. I enjoy working in a close relationship with clients to help them learn about themselves. I also provide skill based treatment to focus on changing problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviors using CBT. I believe that by changing unhelpful or negative thoughts, people can change how they feel which can influence how they behave.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I utilize a relational and psychodynamic approach in conjunction with my certification in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) as well as my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Treatment plans are individualized and tailored to fit the clients specific needs.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I have worked with adults of all ages and have done individual counseling. I work with an array of mental health issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, and codependency.
