Professional statement

Elizabeth Gottlieb Gattone is a licensed clinical social worker in both New York and Florida, serving a wide diversity of clients, both individually and as couples. Her clients currently range in age from college age students to adults in their senior years, seeking therapy due to anxiety, relationship issues, depression, and work/life transitions.

Her work with individuals and couples resides on a broad foundation, considering not only that our past personal experiences help determine our current reactions and patterns, but also taking into account what we can learn from the larger context of cultural and societal legacies and influences. She often follows the tenets of Internal Family Systems, a powerfully effective modality that broadly encompasses other theoretical approaches including attachment, compassion-focused, psychodynamic, acceptance/commitment, meditative/mindfulness, Gestalt, and of course, family systems. IFS offers a non-pathologizing approach, helping clients to see their selves, emotions and behaviors in a new light, while nurturing painful emotions instead of branding them as negative or dysfunctional. Through taking a leadership role in a collaborative process, clients have the opportunity to experience the confidence of becoming an empowered, compassionate, capable participant, leading the way on their own path toward healing and new perspectives.

Elizabeth's approach is warm and welcoming, non-judgmental, and highly respects the views and ideas of her clients. She is available for video or phone sessions, where she encourages each client to create a comforting, private, and safe space to talk.

Message to clients

I really appreciate your researching a therapist in order to find someone with whom you can relate and trust. We all have moments where we can't see clearly enough to help ourselves, and we all deserve to have the support and guidance needed in order to manage confusing, painful or overwhelming situations and emotions.

Eye opening, life and relationship changing perspectives are possible through an understanding of and compassion for how you've learned to exist in this world up til now. And, just as importantly, deep healing of past wounds become possible, leading to new ways of relating to others, defining your sense of self, and existing in the world.

Please feel free to get in touch for a free phone consultation to see if I'd be a good fit for what you're looking for in this time of need and transition.
