Ande Cappellano, CSWA

Clinical Social Work Associate

My specialty is working with young people (ages 6-25) who are forming a sense of who they are and who they want to be in the world. Together, we can focus on depression, anxiety, life transitions, LGBTQ understandings (needs, exploration, learning, questions, support) and forming a solid connection

My Approach

Using a culturally sensitive, respectful, and eclectic approach I work with children and parents to meet the needs of each client. I am informed by trauma, attachment, and mindfulness and approach difficulties from a strength based perspective. My style is gentle, relational and fun; focusing on self-regulation and self-compassion. I believe that childhood and adolescence are the most appropriate developmental stages for intervention. Intervention during these time periods will lead to prevention of later challenges and is possibly the key to addressing larger social change within any given society. Challenges arise at any time; my goal as a clinician is to aid parents and children in developing better skills to manage difficult emotions, communicate, and live comfortably with one another.

My Background

I am a Certified Social Work Associate (CSWA) in the state of Oregon, who has been providing services to young adults, adolescents, children and families for the past five years. I have worked with children for the past twelve years in a variety of settings. I love spending time with young people and learning to see the world through their eyes. I have dedicated my time to working with children and families because I see such value in enhancing parent-child relationships. I am experienced working as a Licensed Master of Social Work in New York State with clients that have identified LBGTQ+ and gender issues, depression, anxiety, and high-risk behaviors.
