Carmen Reyes

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Psychotherapist who brings over 25 years of experience. I am a graduate of Rutgers University in New Jersey where I earned both my BSW and MSW.
I am a bilingual therapist, fluent in both Spanish and English. I am a client-centered therapist who helps people to reach their full potential by forming a supportive relationship based on active listening, acceptance, and understanding. I help clients to identify their strengths and then build upon those strengths to develop goals, insights, and alternate methods of coping to initiate positive changes. I have practiced in New Jersey and Florida in both inpatient and outpatient settings. My background includes intensive community therapeutic services to youth and families coping with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, treatment for individuals, families, couples coping with substance abuse issues, and facilitating women’s groups to treat trauma and self-esteem issues.

In an environment with openness, respect, and empathy, I help clients to develop skills to manage depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, substance use disorders, and recovery, and general life challenges. I work with individuals, couples, and families. The support, I provide to each client, can create his or her own path toward improved self-worth and life fulfillment

Carmen is amazing. She's a great listener and you can tell she has lots of experience. She is warm and empathetic and her no nonsense approach was perfect for us. Her sense of humour is also great to lighten up some serious talks. Thank you so much Carmen!
