Elizabeth Verdesoto, LCSW

M.S.W., New York University Silver School of Social Work

B.A. in Psychology, Columbia University

Born in Ecuador and raised in New York City, I have a rich understanding of diverse cultures and the challenges acculturation may bring. Listening, observing, and sharing empathy have been skills I've utilized for most of my life prompting me to pursue a degree in psychology from Barnard College at Columbia University. 

 

Shortly after graduation, I worked as a research assistant for a public health agency. While there, I interviewed men, women, and children from a variety of backgrounds, and found that people respond to someone with compassion and empathy who listens to them and helps them find new insight.

 

Years later, I pursued a social work degree and received a Master of Social Work from New York University's Silver School of Social Work. 

Since graduation, I have worked with children and families in a school-based setting, and adolescents through adults in private practice.

 

I am certified in trauma-informed play therapy and child and family therapy. 

I am licensed to practice in the state of New York as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

License No.: 086797
