Christine Motta LCSW, CGP

I am excited to launch my psychotherapy practice in Sarasota, Florida. I have thirty years of diverse experience working
with people from all walks of life. The last twenty-five years I have worked in private practice in New York City, and later additionally Montclair, New Jersey. I continue to offer Tele-Behavioral Health psychotherapy (video sessions) to my clients
in New York and New Jersey while seeing people in person in my Sarasota office.

My work is informed by a wide range professional and personal experience. My areas of practice currently include the treatment of anxiety, depression, mood disorders, compulsive disorders, post-traumatic stress, life transitions, senior issues and grief. I work with adults ages 18 to 100. In addition to working with individuals I work with couples, families, and groups.
