  • About Rebecca Bonanno, PhD, LCSW

    I am a clinical social worker licensed in the state of New York. I graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and, after two years in the teaching service corps Teach for America, I went on to graduate school at Stony Brook University’s School of Social Welfare. There, I completed my Master’s in Social Work (MSW) in 2003 and PhD in Social Welfare in 2008. In 2017, I completed a Post-Master’s Certificate in Child and Family Therapy at NYU.

    With children, depending on the age, developmental stage, and particular issue, I use a variety of cognitive-behavioral and play therapy strategies to help improve functioning and well-being. Working with parents and other family members is often a key part of successful change with children.

    Adults may also benefit from a cognitive-behavioral approach, as well as mindfulness-based strategies and solution-focused methods.

    Are you ready to take the first step?
