Lynette Hector, M.S.

Staff Therapist                                                                                      

After receiving my training in marriage and family therapy, I’ve had considerable experience as a social worker  in the Bronx for the past three years.  There I provided direct services including intake assessments, home visits to ensure the safety of children, and implemented behavioral modification plans with schools to help students reduce hyperactivity and achieve greater focus.   In the course of my six years working in the mental health field, I have helped numerous children and families affected by a variety of socio-economic issues including ADHD, bi-polar disorder, bereavement, couple relationships, and parent-child relationships.  I am also certified to provide pre-marital counseling using the PREPARE/ENRICH program.
