Erika Furo, LGSW, MSW

School-Based Mental Health Clinical Trainee; Woodbury High School

I use a person-centered, strength-based approach to join alongside clients in their pathway to growth and healing. I work collaboratively with clients and their families to identify and work towards their goals. I believe that building a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship and environment is essential to effective therapy. I integrate trauma-informed, CBT, and family systems approaches to encourage client’s to establish healthy patterns of behavior, utilize their personal strengths, and connect to themselves.
