She/Her/HersLicensed Master Social Worker, LMSW Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
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.
