Nellie Rodriguez

Hello, I'm Nellie, a licensed social worker and therapist driven by a genuine passion for helping others. With a wealth of experience, I have supported clients facing various challenges such as substance use, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and familial/relationship issues. My approach is to meet clients where they are, offering support, problem-solving skills, and coping techniques as they navigate their concerns and strive for personal growth and improved relationships. 

Authenticity and honesty are fundamental to my therapeutic style. I want my clients to feel understood, empowered, and equipped with clarity regarding their next steps towards achieving their goals. Drawing on my master's in clinical social work, I employ a range of effective therapy modalities, including Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. 

My goal is to create a partnership with you within a safe and friendly atmosphere, where we can jointly explore and process the challenges in your life. By incorporating techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and mindfulness, we'll develop practical strategies that work in the real world. Together, we'll delve into your core beliefs and challenge negative thinking patterns that may be holding you back from fulfilling and satisfying situations. I eagerly anticipate our collaboration in a calm, therapeutic, and non-judgmental environment, solely focused on your emotional health, growth, and overall well-being. You deserve the opportunity to emerge as the best version of yourself.
