Joe Cardamone, MSW
I seek to create warm, safe spaces for clients to release emotion and feel heard, seen, and validated. I view all of my clients as the experts of their own experience, and (rather than judging) my goal is to support individuals as a collaborator and ally. I believe whole-heartedly that every person I come into contact with has certain strengths and tools that are useful in achieving desired outcomes. My role will always be to learn from my clients, identify what makes them strong and unique, and co-create goals and meaningful experiences in therapy sessions. I am passionate about working with individuals impacted by trauma and enjoy using various frameworks/modalities, including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), to support them in the healing process. My focus is on the internal and external systems that drive the human experience, and I am ready to explore topics of societal injustice, culture, and oppression/privilege, in addition to mental suffering and emotional challenges.
