Hello my name is Doretha Pengel and I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Texas and New York State. I am currently employed with Creating Connections Counseling Services full time/ I am a graduate of Fordham University School of Social Services where I received my MSW in 2003. Over the past 17 years I have obtained a broad range of experience ranging from psychotherapy with individuals, couples, adolescents and geriatrics. I am also an experienced mentor and life coach with individual clients and have been able to help them find their full potential. Throughout my sessions with clients I often bridge the gap between theory and practice which allows client to understand how their real life situations relate to different treatment modalities. I am down to earth and always seems able to establish a deep connection with clients.
Creating Connections is a culturally sensitive practice and I am passionate about helping to foster the healing process of those in need. Taking the first steps to finding a therapist can be overwhelming. I would like to congratulate you on taking the first steps in this journey. Let me help you cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself through mindfulness and self awareness. My goal is to give you the tools to elevate your emotional intelligence and release psychological baggage. Call me so together we can work towards alleviating your suffering and adopt an optimal mental attitude.
My focus is to help each individual heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan. During the Covid-19 pandemic I am available via telehealth Monday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm and Saturday's from 10 am to 2 pm. Thank you for taking the time to learn about me and my practice. I look forward to speaking with you about your treatment goals.
