Oriana Federico is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker located in Andover, MA. Oriana supports young adults and adults who would like to work through academic or career-related stress. She also helps those who are going through major changes, whether that’s the start or ending of a significant relationship, moving to a new place, or exploring new identities. Many of Oriana’s clients feel like they struggle to cope with their negative emotions, which can become overwhelming. She specializes in working with those who face anxiety and depression.
Oriana’s approach to therapy is client-centered and strengths-based. Clients drive the conversation while Oriana reflects back observed patterns and makes gentle suggestions. She often points out past instances of resilience to show her clients that they are strong and capable of handling hard things. Clients also learn skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) such as dispelling cognitive distortions or using their logic to avoid making false assumptions. Oriana also incorporates mindfulness practices into her work with clients, teaching them how to ground themselves in the sensations of the present.
Oriana earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University School of Social Work and has 10 years of experience. Clients benefit from Oriana’s deep empathy and ability to make clients feel heard, understood, and worthy of well-being.
