Hello here is summary of my experience and approach to therapeutic counseling;

My experience as a clinical social worker for over 25 years includes working in the prevention and treatment of family violence, victim advocacy for survivors of sexual assault and to assist individuals experiencing depression, loss and grief. I have assisted individuals and families struggling with communication and conflict issues and provided counseling for youth as part of court ordered diversion related to behavior problems in school and at home, truancy, substance abuse, adjustment problems divorce and family separations.

My approach to counseling is client centered and solution focused in a collaborative approach to assisting clients in identifying key concerns in an atmosphere based in mutual respect. I take a holistic approach to therapy taking in account environmental, cultural and familial influences identifying client strengths and motivation for change. Treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy with focus in identifying and changing negative thinking patterns, incorporating techniques such as mindfulness and meditation.

Thank you for taking the time to review my bio and commend you for making the first step in seeking help. I am comfortable using either video teleconferencing ,telephone, live chat or messaging in conducting therapy sessions depending on your preference. I look forward to hearing from you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Me. Pavone pays close attention to my issues, and has a variety of techniques and tools to help guide me and teach me to better understand myself and concerns. I’ve been seeing progress with my issues and becoming more aware the origins of some of my stress.

Frank has been a blessing in my life and I am so thankful I was able to connect with him. He provided me the support I needed during a difficult transition period of dealing with a loss. I cannot recommend him enough for those seeking support. He is patient, professional and kind. Thank you Frank!

He's been very helpful and polite. Takes my issues and experiences seriously. Works with me at my own pace. So far I'm actually looking forward to our conversations and I'm sure it will stay that way.

I have only had 1 session but so far he is very understanding. He respects that I had a therapist before and asked if he could provide insight on what the previous therapist was trying to accomplish. It felt as if he did not want to overstep or possibly break something I was comfortable with. I appreciate that!
