Stefan Dabkowski, MS, LPCC
The process of therapy is all about change and fulfilling one’s ultimate potential and purpose. My role as a counselor is to assist in the process of self-change and personal growth. I attended the University of Albany where I obtained my Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in outpatient and managed care settings and have addressed mental health and substance use disorders. In my practice I utilize a wide-range of evidence based approaches such as DBT, CBT, and REBT. I am trained in Motivational Interviewing to further assist my patients with the process of change and ambivalence that may come with therapeutic process. I also utilize a philosophical approach with my application of existential theory within the counseling setting to assist my patients with development of further understanding of their sense of being and meaning in the world. I have an interest in working with all different presenting problems relating to mood disorders, PTSD and recovery from substance use. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment to assist in the development of trust with my patients to foster the process of change and recovery.
