Andrew J. Carini LCSW


I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Masters degree from Stony Brook University in New York. During that time, I worked in various community- based agencies in both direct service and supervisory capacities.


I moved to sunny Florida in 2003 to work with juvenile offenders in addition to becoming a Certified Exceptional Student Education teacher. I spent several years working as an Adjunct Professor as well a maintaining a private therapy practice. I have been employed in the Florida Public School system for the past fifteen years providing social work consultation and behavior support services. I also extensively studied the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and have provided staff training and development in this area.


I utilize a Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused framework. I frequently draw on a variety of modalities in developing solutions to difficult situations. I have a direct, yet supportive approach to providing clients with manageable and realistic solutions.


I work with individuals, couples and families. I’ve completed the Level 2 Gottman training intensive in evidence-based interventions for couples. I can assist in the development and implementation of programs for Anxiety and Anger Management, Behavioral Self-regulation and overall Self-esteem improvement. I also offer Pre-Marital counseling.


I look forward to meeting with you!
