Dr. Gomes

Hello! My name is Dr. Arminda Gomes and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist. I have an MSW from New York University and a PhD in social work from Columbia University. I have been a practicing psychotherapist for over13 years. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and women's issues. I can also help with issues related to the pandemic. Our first visit will be an initial evaluation. We will talk about what brings you to treatment, and what you hope to gain. I will ask you questions about your life experiences and prior treatment. I provide Psychodynamic Therapy, which is insight-oriented. I have trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which focuses on how our thoughts impact our feelings and actions. My approach is eclectic and depends on your needs. While I am a professional therapist, I recognize that you are the expert on you. I partner with you and together we work toward your goals in a compassionate, supportive, and safe space. We can help you feel better again!
