DR. MARITZA ROBINSON
My name is Dr. Maritza Robinson and I am an LCDC-I and an LMSW in supervision for LCSW. I enjoy helping clients learn their strengths and use them in times of crisis and life circumstances. I use an authentic and empathetic approach with my clients as well as ensure that I am present in the moment. My client-centered approach helps them to regain their control. I practice in a secure and safe space and strive to build a therapeutic alliance built on comfort and trust.
I have experience working with clients ages 12 to 65 who have ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences), suffer from grief, depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation as well as those who have anxiety and mental illnesses, such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

WHAT IS AN LMSW?
“Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) is a master’s level license that allows one to practice as a nonclinical social worker.” Many social workers earning an MSW from a program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is enough to qualify to apply to become an LMSW. Depending on your state, there may be a licensure exam that evaluates an applicant’s understanding of key social work principles, particularly in ethics and safety. Many social workers with an MSW or LMSW have careers in case management, working in settings such as child protection agencies or government organizations evaluating eligibility for public assistance. In addition, some people pursue an LMSW with an interest in working on policy reform or in social advocacy jobs. These social workers may find themselves working alongside people with advanced degrees in health policy or government, lending the unique perspective of a social worker.
What is aN LCDC-I
A licensed chemical dependency counselor (LCDC) helps people with substance use disorders to better understand and cope with addiction.
