Professional statement

Tiffany Castellanos is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Clearwater, FL. She provides psychotherapy for individuals and couples in both English and Spanish. Tiffany is passionate about helping her clients move past difficult traumatic experiences, especially those that result in anxiety, depression, or PTSD. Tiffany also works with couples who would like to build their conflict resolution skills, grow their bond, or process through an issue.

Tiffany’s approach to trauma therapy uses a therapy modality called Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), which helps clients move past painful memories from traumatic events and achieve relief much quicker usually within 1 to 5 sessions. Alongside this technique, Tiffany also brings mindfulness practices into session to teach clients how to be present with themselves and aware of their thoughts. With couples, Tiffany practices The Gottman Method, an evidenced-based couples therapy modality that helps couples resolve conflicts effectively, increase intimacy, and mutual respect.

Tiffany earned her Master’s degree in Social Work and has over 18 years of experience helping others. She has worked in a variety of settings and hopes to bring comfort and peace to those who have suffered from trauma, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, marital conflict, and difficulty with major life transitions. Her style is warm, compassionate, and welcoming to all identities and backgrounds.
