Nina Pierre, Therapist

Hi! I'm Nina Pierre. I'm a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and Credentialed Alcohol Substance Abuse Counselor Master Counselor (CASAC MC). I have over 12 years of experience and received my Masters of Social Work at Fordham University with a concentration on Leadership and  Macropractice, and Substance Abuse. 

I have experience in Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma Informed Care (TIC), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Seeking Safety Therapy. I provide a safe and compassionate space to explore social identity, spirituality, loss, and needs.  I am passionate about improving accessibility to treatment and promoting self-care. 

I have experience in different modalities including outpatient/inpatient substance abuse treatment, transitional housing, permanent housing, all-inclusive of LGBTQIA+, HIV/AIDS, Dually Diagnosed, and other special needs/vulnerable populations.
