Alea DiGirolamo, LMSW

As a licensed social worker, I have focused my career on providing an empathetic and nonjudgmental environment so that each individual feels free to express themselves openly. I believe that it is vital to establish trust in a therapeutic relationship. I take great pride in making sure that each individual trusts in the confidentiality, authenticity and skill of my work. Each individual’s experiences are special and unique. I work to utilize an approach that best fits the needs of each client individually.

I specialize in individual as well as couple psychotherapy. My areas of experienced treatment are anxiety, depression, stress management, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, family conflict, life transitions and social stressors. The goals of treatment are to assist each client in gaining self awareness, encouraging an understanding of their thought processes, modifying unhealthy patterns of behavior, and working to feel more empowered and self assured.

I utilize cognitive behavioral techniques, mindfulness and the strength based perspective. By applying a variety of skill building techniques, I work with each individual on improving communication, identifying negative patterns of behavior and restructuring the dynamic so that more satisfying connections are established. I look forward speaking with you and helping you build a solid foundation for the future.
