Luis Antonio Ferreira, LICSW, MSW

With over thirty years of human services experience I have witnessed significant changes in the field as a response to critical events, issues and the way that we perceive recovery, wellness, progress and adjustment. I am well practiced in various treatment modalities such as motivational, cognitive-behavioral, dialectic and psychodynamic therapy. My treatment approach is always client focused and driven. I have been privileged to work with diverse populations, taking into account social and cultural factors with understanding and sensitivity. I specialize in family therapy, trauma, PTSD and grief counseling. I have proficient experience with counseling adolescents as well as parent/child relational problems.

 

I speak both Portuguese and Spanish fluently.
