***Pio Cabada, LCSW-R/MPA: All I ever wanted was to live in a happy, loving, and peaceful place. When I do get little moments of these, I realized it usually comes from my connection and relationship with everyone and everything around me, and most specially, my relationship with another.
I am a License Clinical Social Worker. My master degree in Social Work was earned at Fordham University and my second master degree (Public Administration) was earned at Baruch College. I use both master degrees interchangeably in the way I work with each client/patient. In addition, I am psychoanalytically trained at the National Institute for Psychoanalysis and the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis.
Besides using my psychodynamic psychotherapy training, I also use many of the well-known evidenced based practice modalities and theories. In addition, I am also trained in Drama Therapy, Psychodrama Therapy, and Sociodrama. Moreover, I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and share yoga principles in my work (e.g. breathing, mindfulness, focus attention, awareness, etc.). SIFI-certified (I train future social workers). Lastly, I am PAIRS-certified (Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills) instructor and have worked with couples struggling with their communication skills.
