Silvina Falcon-Levine, MSW, LCSW
I am a licensed clinical social worker (New Jersey License #44SC04613000, New York License #092214) and have been providing mental health services for over 25 years. I earned my master’s degree in social work from Rutgers University and completed my clinical internships at Trinitas Regional Medical Center and Bayonne Community Mental Health Center. I have held positions at hospitals and community mental health centers where I provided mental health services to address a wide variety of mental health concerns. I have extensive experience working in individual, group and family therapy to adolescents and adults. I have assisted clients suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, obsessive-compulsive disorder and body focus repetitive disorders, self–defeating habits and bereavement.
I am fortunate to be able to provide bilingual Spanish services and recognize the impact of multicultural issues in mental health functioning. I have served as a consultant to organizations providing bilingual parent training workshops to Spanish speaking populations. I specialize in working with clients who suffer from mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties. I utilize a goal-oriented and collaborative approach integrating cognitive-behavioral methods with other empirically sound strategies to tailor treatment to address my clients’ individual needs.
I am trained in EMDR (levels I and II) and I am a Level 3 Certified in TEAM-CBT Therapist. I am also certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).
