Quincy Adams is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with two offices in Brooklyn, NY who specializes in depression, anxiety, parenting, and college mental health. He has extensive experience working with children, teens, young adults, and parents. Many of his clients have anxiety about work and/or relationships and are prone to overthinking and/or panic.
Quincy primarily works from a resilience and strengths-based perspective while also utilizing an insight-oriented, emotion-focused, mindfulness, and body-centered approach. He has extensive training in Psychoanalytic Therapy, so he often utilizes this treatment modality. He spends time with his clients exploring how past experiences have influenced who they are today and what triggers their symptoms. When working with children, Quincy works to understand how neuro-biological, psycho-social, and environmental factors affects behaviors.
Quincy believes everyone has the coping skills to succeed and overcome life’s challenges; his job is to help bring out an individual’s strengths. Before becoming a therapist, he worked as an educator and holds a masters in early childhood development. His Crown Heights location is accessible from the Park Place and Nostrand Avenue subway stations, and his Fort Greene office is near the Clinton-Washington Avenues subway station.
