Dana Viscosi, LMSW received her Master’s Degree from Adelphi University’s School of Social Work. Dana has worked in various levels of care including higher education, outpatient facilities, crisis centers, and private settings, providing individual and group therapy to all ages, including teens and families, young adult womxn, the neurodiverse, and LGBTQIA+ populations. Dana strives to help her clients establish an empowered sense of self, find deeper self love, and gently explore how they relate to others.
Dana believes that trauma, feeling helpless in a life stage, perfectionism, and unfulfilling relationships with ourselves and others don’t have to control us or make us feel stuck any longer. Dana believes that we heal in community, and provides a warm, nonjudgemental, supportive space to show up exactly as you are to help you connect with your truest, highest version of yourself.
Dana participates actively in the therapeutic dialogue, and does not believe in a “one size fits all” technique, but will tailor her approach to your personal needs and goals, mostly utilizing a strengths-based approach in combination with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
When working with younger clients, Dana takes a family approach by keeping communication open with parents by holding parent sessions and/or trainings. Dana strives to help folks heal their relationship with food and their bodies, and specializes in the assessment and treatment of eating disorders, anxiety, depression, relationship and family problems, and trauma.
Dana, a native New Yorker, spends her free time traveling, painting, and riding her bike to catch the sunset. Dana is an advocate for justice and is always reading a new book or learning about different professional techniques, different cultures, and different ways to connect with the world. Dana loves to watch Seinfeld to help soothe her Sunday scaries.
