Adrienne Wert, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, EMDR Trained
My greatest reward is working as a therapist and helping my clients reach their optimal potential. I have worked in the field of social work for over twenty years. I was an executive with a consulting firm when I decided to pursue my Masters in Social Work from Fordham University in New York City. I have worked with the seriously mentally ill, families and individuals dealing with addictions, Crisis Intervention at Monmouth Medical Center and a school social worker in the public school system. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of New Jersey.
I am well trained in variety of treatment modalities. One modality is EMDR. I practice trauma informed therapy for victims of trauma. I find that the use of EMDR, although not for everyone, enables collaborative work with my clients to address and refrain the source of their distress. I use psychodrama, cognitive behavioral therapy and family systems therapy depending client’s goals and the goodness of fit. I work with trauma victims, LBGTQ population, and people with addictions, anxiety, and depression.
I am an active volunteer in my community, deeply concerned with social justice. I am a member of EMDRIA, an organization of EMDR practitioners. I belong to the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama. I am also a member of NASW.
I live with my dog RJ and enjoy all the activities that living at the seaside offers.
