Professional statement

Quincy Adams is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker 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.

Message to clients

Feeling stuck, unfulfilled, and or overwhelmed can be very debilitating, isolating and feel permanent. These challenges can come up in relationships (love, friendships and family) and in your work or school. You may have tried just about everything you can think of to address your concerns but still don't know how to move forward and resolve things.
I can help you find relief. I have a calm, gentle and nonjudgmental presence that is perceived by many to be nurturing and growth-promoting.
I primarily work from a resilience and strengths-based perspective where I support your inborn ability to thrive and achieve a more fulfilling life. I strongly believe that we all have a natural propensity to move towards personal health and fulfillment but many of us have experienced events (past or present) or have mindsets that get in the way. Together, we will discover how you can tap into your inborn healing capacities to create the change you are seeking.
I have an insight-oriented, emotion-focused, mindfulness and body-centered approach that can help you gain added depth in understanding your thoughts, choices, feelings and behavioral patterns. This deepened understanding can help you make better choices and live a more fulfilling life.
In addition, I bring my gifts and expertise in working with young children, adolescents, as well as parents. I am able to tune into their playful and imaginative minds in order to get them back to a place of where they can experience fulfilling relationships with peers and families.
