Feel free to contact me by email to schedule a free phone consultation if any of the available times listed are not possible.
Letizia Adorno is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Midtown Manhattan who specializes in seeing clients navigating the impacts of past trauma. She is bilingual in English and Spanish and works with individuals across ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds. She also specializes in challenges around immigration and acculturation, including intergenerational issues.
Letizia uses Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), to aid clients in unblocking and releasing painful memories, leading to more rapid trauma recovery. She also draws techniques from Sensorimotor training, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). When appropriate, Letizia implements Reiki, a Japanese method that can be calming and help with stress. It can be meditative and grounding. She encourages clients to ask more about this approach if interested.
Letizia defines trauma broadly and many of the clients she works with do not realize that what they've been through qualifies as traumatic. Letizia treads gently, providing education on trauma and helping her clients understand that it can be held in the body and exposed through emotional reactions.
Letizia graduated with her Master’s in Social Work from Columbia University. Her postgraduate training includes coursework in Sensorimotor Training, Traumatic Stress Studies, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Reiki Master Training. Outside of her private practice, Letizia is involved in teaching and supervising at the trauma program at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapies (ICP).
