Professional statement

Allison Lopez-Galtman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who welcomes individual adults and children at her practice in Brooklyn. She works with clients who are grappling with depression, anxiety, and difficulty in adjustment to major transitions, including graduating from college or moving to New York City.

When adult clients visit Allison, they are often having difficulty managing chronic stress, and may simultaneously be navigating the effects of trauma. In her work with children, Allison utilizes play therapy, games, and toys to help them learn how to manage frustration or other concerns as they arise.

Allison has over 20 years of experience in the field and understands that respect and compassion are key to a successful therapeutic journey. She looks forward to welcoming you.
