Clinical Social Worker
Irving Schattner

Credentials: License

Institution: Florida Board of Clinical Social Workers

Institution: Florida International University

Graduated: 1996

In practice since: 1996

I am a licensed clinical social worker / psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience helping individuals, couples and families overcome real-life challenges. I've worked in diverse clinical settings including assisted living and skilled nursing / rehabilitation, community mental health, addictions, psychiatric care and, more recent, in private practice. It is through these experiences that I've developed a strong appreciation of the uniqueness of each person's life story, as well as the belief that given the right support and conditions people can overcome most challenges and even thrive. Recognizing that no two clients are alike, my treatment approach is evidence-based and individually tailored to best meet client needs. My areas of specialization include anxiety disorders and depression, addictions, relationships, and trauma. I work with teens, adults and seniors with a caring, solution-focused approach.

I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers {NASW}, and Anxiety and Depression Association of America {ADAA}.
