Aleksandra Gold, LCSW Clinical Supervisor
Aleksandra Gold received her master’s degree in Social Work from New York University Silver School of Social Work in 2012, focusing on Evidence-Based Practice and Dual Disorder Treatment. She completed her Seminar in Field Instruction in 2017.
Aleksandra worked in inpatient and outpatient settings providing both direct and clinical supervisory services. Aleksandra has a wide range of experience having worked with clients who struggle with anxiety, obsessive, psychotic, personality, eating, and attention deficit disorders. She has also worked with trauma/complex trauma, non-suicidal self-injury, post-partum, LGBTQ+, and gender identity related issues. She has always loved collaborating with an Interdisciplinary Team including psychiatric nurses and psychiatrists to deliver the optimal and most comprehensive client care.
While working in Inpatient Psychiatry, Aleksandra saw people at their worst – decompensated and scared. She got an inside look at what the psychiatric hospitalization experience entails with admission, treatment, disposition, and discharge. She covered the Geriatric, MICA (mentally ill chemical abusers), and Substance Abuse Detox and Rehab units. At the state outpatient mental health clinic, Aleksandra provides verbal and behavioral therapy to adults.
Aleksandra has experience providing assessment, diagnosis, and treatment to individuals who range greatly in their functioning. Aleksandra recognizes that sometimes a mental illness is visible based on various markers, and other times, an outsider would never suspect there is a problem. She understands that this does not mean an individual is not suffering inside their minds, hearts, and souls. She strongly believes no assumption of a client should ever be made and tailors treatments individually in a warm and supportive environment.
