Dorette Greene, LMSW is committed to fostering meaningful change through the use of the therapeutic process and relationship. She seeks to assist clients in living happier, healthier, and more fulfilled lives by addressing and working through the obstacles preventing them from reaching their goals. She has worked with individuals, couples, families, and children to support them in coping with life stressors, transitions, depression, anxiety, relational, and identity issues.
Dorette works from a strengths based and client focused perspective. She helps clients increase self-worth, identify and address maladaptive coping mechanisms, and develop adaptive alternatives. Dorette works in collaboration with clients to create a safe and judgement free space where they feel validated, affirmed, and heard. Her approach is a flexible blend of psychodynamic therapy that incorporates empirical methods such as solution- focused, cognitive behavioral, and mindfulness techniques to help clients make lasting change to their lives and overcome negative patterns of behavior.
Dorette also works with the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation in inpatient psychiatry. Additionally, she has experience working with an employee assistance program, and within a community outpatient mental health clinic.
Dorette completed her undergraduate degree at Utica College of Syracuse University and her Master of Social Work Degree at Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work.
