Professional statement

Monica Costantino is a Licensed Master Social Worker based in Manhattan, NY who works with adults across the lifespan. She provides mind-body therapy, specializing in complex trauma, anxiety, women's issues, chronic illness, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). She has extensive experience supporting those who are struggling with life transitions, attachment wounds, and somatic complaints.

Monica's integrative style pulls from a variety of modalities, tailoring to the unique needs of every individual. She utilizes a combination of psychodynamic and solution-focused techniques to get to the root of the issue while also providing concrete tools for clients when needed (through CBT & DBT). Additionally, she practices from a trauma-informed lens, integrating Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), among other somatic practices, to emphasize clients' mind-body connection and support them in processing distress on a deeper level. Furthermore, her training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) allows her to treat OCD in the most effective way possible. Monica's ultimate goal is to help others develop deeper insight, build upon strengths, and break free from old patterns by cultivating a personalized and holistic healing experience for all.

Monica meets clients exactly where they are by offering the flexibility of remote sessions and welcomes new clients to her online practice through Thrive Psychotherapy. She will likely have in-person availability in Midtown sometime in the future, though, this is still undetermined.


Message to clients

In navigating painful emotions and overwhelming obstacles, we often lose the sense of the freedom and authenticity we once embodied. However, with unconditional support and a safe environment to explore ourselves freely, healing can begin to take place.

Though transformation isn't always easy, it often illuminates our potential and enables us to step into our power. I'm committed to working collaboratively with every client, placing them at the center of the therapeutic process and empowering them to take an active role in their growth. Whether you’ve been holding onto painful baggage or are simply looking to deepen your sense of self, I would absolutely love to support you in cultivating the life of fulfillment you deserve.
