August 9, 2018

Gene Gardino is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and has a Master of Social Work from Fordham University. He also trained at the renowned Ackerman Institute for Couples and Families and has experience consulting with schools for teacher training and parent education. Gene Gardino, LCSW has been in private practice for 20 years and is based in Midtown Manhattan. His specialties include couples, families, individuals, addictions, and has a lot of experience working with members of the LGBT community.

When asked about what advice he would share with people that are considering booking their first appointment he said, “It is important that each client and therapist are a good fit for each other – allowing the client to make the second appointment empowers them to decide for themselves to stay or go; it is the responsibility of the therapist to check in regular to see What’s working well in our therapy and what’s not?”

Gene Gardino, LCSW went on to explain what makes his practice standout and said “I believe strongly in the power of relationships and their impact on the emotional and mental health of all individuals. My work with clients is never in a vacuum but always in the context of their life. For this reason my specialty is working with couples and families in conflict, with adolescents seeking identity through peer interactions, and with individuals from minority groups of all kinds who suffer the trauma of being invisible so much of their lives. The style of my work with clients is very interactive, also reflective of my focus on the relational arena, family history, and personal feelings and experiences.”
