Andrew Cicchetti, PhD
Since 1987, Dr. Andrew Cicchetti has been instrumental in helping hundreds of people achieve long-term sobriety, one day at a time. Andrew is a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Gestalt Therapist. He earned his Masters in Social Work from Yeshiva University and his Ph.D. in Social Welfare from The Graduate Center.
Andrew has maintained a private psychotherapy and coaching practice since the late 1990s, initially in Gramercy Park, New York City. On the vanguard of the Tele-Mental Health Movement, he has worked primarily via video-conferencing since 2009 and has developed considerable expertise in working in this modality. Andrew has taught at the Hunter College School of Social Work and at the Wurzweiler School of Social Work. Additionally, he has served as the Vice-President of the Association for the Advancement of Social Work with Groups and has been an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery. He has been published and lectured frequently on group work and addiction.
His philosophy is this: you can’t do it alone, nor should you! Change is hard, but possible, if not necessary! It’s not only easier when you have allies in the journey, but necessary to maintain long-term recovery. I know a lot about change processes and can help you learn what you need to know to get better. In my approach to change, I employ tools from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Meditation, body-awareness techniques, 12 Step Recovery, latest neuroscience findings, and evidence based practices. I look forward to being an ally in your journey.
