Andrea Greenberg - Family Therapist specialized in Family Preservation | Newport Academy

Family Therapist

Andrea E. Greenberg

Andrea E. Greenberg believes that we all have the capacity to shine, and sometimes we need help to reach our goals. As a child, Andrea experienced homelessness, abuse, and neglect. She credits her guidance counselor in junior high school for saving her life and, as a result, she was inspired to pursue a career helping teenagers. It has always been her passion and calling to be a helper and a healer, and to promote improved relationships and personal achievements.

The majority of Andrea’s career has been in community-based family preservation—roles in which she worked with at-risk children and teenagers and their families. Furthermore, she served as a lead clinician in a women’s inpatient drug treatment program. She also had a private practice as a licensed clinical social worker, providing therapy to children, adolescents, individuals, families, and couples.

Andrea excels in treating depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use disorder, and personality disorders. She has worked with victims of domestic violence, as well as child abuse and neglect. In addition, her 25 years of experience include working with clients with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, PTSD, and acute, chronic mental illnesses.

Newport Academy…in her own words

“After many years as a social worker and therapist, I feel that I’ve finally found my true place as a family therapist. I am able to be at the foundational level of true healing and repair, by supporting, nurturing, and facilitating the recovery process for and with families. The Newport Academy staff—with their drive, dedication, and sense of family and team—create a very special environment for change. I truly feel honored to be part of this family!”–Andrea E. Greenberg
