Philosophy of Care 

Angelia DiSalvo is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who specializes in anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, SED, and more.

Angelia has over 25 years of experience working within the behavioral health community. She is able to work with clients who have varied ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds and has obtained a broad-based knowledge of how to promote healthy relationships. Angelia's primary focus is human development and implementing that knowledge into useful tools to facilitate healing in a way that enhances emotional growth. "In me, you will find a nonjudgemental therapist that offers an encouraging safe space with unconditional positive regard and emotional healing through supportive feedback," she says.

"I look forward to teaming up with my client to overcome current and past stressors, demonstrating resilience, and healthy living. In clients I do not see symptoms or issues, I see the person as a whole who has made the decision to come forward by reaching out for assistance," says Angelia. "I don’t generally look for specific diagnoses to work with. Through empathetic understanding, motivational interviewing, and building therapeutic rapport with you we can determine your needs and begin to set your therapeutic goals."

Together, you will work to understand your distress in order to begin to identify current needs and brainstorm healthy coping mechanisms to decrease negative feelings and promote healthy wellbeing and soul.

Nick Smith, MA, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

Nicholas Smith is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in anxiety, depression, self-harm, substance abuse, life transitions, and relationship issues. He gained 10 years of experience after graduating from New York University with a Master's in Social Work.

Nicholas worked with mentally ill, criminally-involved individuals with an in-home treatment model designed to assist in recovery. He then transitioned to the emergency room at Bellevue Hospital where his team would work to assist those in crisis. In addition, he provided years of individual therapy for a number of conditions including depression and anxiety as well as psychosis and personality disorders.

"It is my belief that each individual carries a strength that allows them to continue; however, at times, it is helpful to have a therapist to realize those strengths and use them to overcome the difficulties," says Nicholas. "Relying on an approach that leans heavily on a dialectical process, my goal is to assist individuals and couples to reach their full potential and thrive."
