CARO RODRIGUEZ-FUCCI, LMSW
Psychotherapist, Clinical Coordinator & Supervisor
I believe that we all carry a multitude of identities and experiences that shape the way we move through the world. It is my intention to understand your unique perspective and welcome all pieces of you in a non-judgmental space. Navigating the world with one or more stigmatized identities can bring up shame, anxiety and heavily impact our sense of self. I offer a welcoming and affirming space for you to shed some of this weight.
I partner with you to attend to the sore spots in your life and celebrate your areas of strength and resilience. I believe therapy is a great way to stay in conversation with yourself and build practices that work best for you.
Through a relational approach I use metaphor, humor, authenticity and a strengths-based lens to invite in and explore your many layers and nuances. Take what you need, leave what you don’t - this is your space.
