Hello all,

My name is Bernadette McGuire, LCSW. I graduated from Columbia University with my Masters of Social Work and am currently residing in NYC. I have several years of experience working with homeless teenagers as a director for a homeless youth program, as well as a crisis social worker for youth in the city. I have clinical training in working with LGBT+ patients, and I am also certified in supervising social work interns in the state of New York. I’m currently working at an outpatient mental health clinic where I provide psychotherapy to adult and children patients, both virtually and in-person. I am hoping to start my own private practice within the year.

I’ve heard about EMDR from past coworkers that have been trained and deliver EMDR to their own patients. I have also had patients that have experienced EMDR for themselves and found it very helpful. I am excited to learn more about it and put it into practice!
