About me

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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Frank Pavone. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.

Dr. Frank has been a great help in me and my boyfriend’s relationship. We are a young couple and we were a little concerned no one would take our issues serious but Dr. Frank is always going above and beyond to try and solve our issues. We have been seeing him for a couple of months now and I can see we both have seen a difference. There are still issues to work on but so far it’s been of great help to talk to Dr. Pavone. Always looking forward to the next therapy session!

Frank was very good at listening to our needs and giving both of us equal amounts of attention. We appreciated how he set a clear goal with us as a couple and helped us track our progress towards it. He also took the time to facilitate our practice of the communication techniques he offered to us. We would like to thank Frank for getting our communication style back on track and thus making us a functioning and happy couple!

Frank helps me identify steps within solutions. He doesn't judge me but offers honest feedback about patterns he sees.

Frank has been a really good help to us. He is a great listener and understands easily our views. He makes us feel very confortable talking and he creates a perfect relaxing atmosphere to get the conversation going. He doesn't judge and makes us feel suported when expressing our opinion. We both ended up loving the sessions with him even when one of us was very reticent about therapy at the start. We have a lot to thank him for.
