I'm Debra DeMartino and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. For over 20 years I have been helping people to establish coping skills, effective communication skills (to enhance relationships), and to heal from emotional pain due to loss, anxiety and depression. My many years of experience and keen skills lead people who work with me to feel deeply understood and supported. My counseling techniques lead to effective and lasting changes. NOW is the time to address your emotional and mental health needs.

Feel free to call me for a free phone consultation. I can be reached at (516) 932-7619.

Since the COVID 19 pandemic, I am always available to work with individuals and couples virtually and by phone as well. If you haven't done this before and you have reservations, you will find it's much easier than you think and just as effective. Call me to discuss your options.
