Student Intern – Low Cost Program
Hello there, I’m Gabriella Rocha, a dedicated professional in the field of Social Work. Armed with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work, I am currently serving as an MSW Student Intern, working under the expert guidance of Carol Mirones, LCSW. My mission is to provide unwavering support and guidance to individuals facing a variety of challenges, including but not limited to substance abuse, mental health issues, grief and loss, dual diagnoses, and co-occurring disorders.
My extensive experience as a social worker at Banyan Treatment Center has greatly enriched my professional journey. At Banyan, I had the privilege of working with a diverse population of clients, primarily consisting of adults grappling with the complex intersection of substance abuse and mental illnesses. This experience has provided me with valuable insights into the intricate nuances of dual diagnoses and co-occurring disorders. Through my time at Banyan Health, I’ve honed my skills in tailoring evidence-based therapeutic approaches to address the specific needs of each client, fostering a deeper understanding of the challenges they face.
My approach to therapy is firmly rooted in the person-centered philosophy. I recognize the uniqueness of each individual, valuing their distinct experiences and personal goals. To empower my clients, I draw upon evidence-based therapeutic techniques, specializing in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). These approaches are tailored to enhance emotional regulation and overall well-being.
Central to my practice is the core value of empathy. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can freely explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
Our therapeutic journey together is a collaborative one. We will work hand in hand to craft a customized treatment plan that aligns perfectly with your specific needs and aspirations. Whether you’re seeking assistance in overcoming addiction, managing mental health symptoms, coping with grief, or navigating the complexities of dual diagnoses, I am committed to providing guidance, encouragement, and empowerment at every turn.
Choosing to seek therapy is a courageous act of self-care and a pivotal step towards a brighter future. Together, we will navigate the path to healing, growth, and transformation. I believe in unlocking your inner resilience and harnessing your strengths to pave the way towards a more fulfilling life.
If you’re ready to take that first step or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I eagerly anticipate the privilege of working alongside you and being a part of your journey towards a happier, healthier you. Let’s embark on this transformative journey together and create positive changes in your life.
