Ally Swiatowicz is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and works as a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) on our integrated behavioral health team. BHCs at Community Care Physicians are licensed mental health providers and social workers. Many are embedded within our practices working side by side with your doctor and health care team in delivering you the best “whole person” healthcare possible. Ally is also one of the BHCs embedded on-site at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, assisting with the behavioral health needs of Regeneron and its employees.
Ally has always had a passion for helping others. Through education and personal experiences, she has come to understand the connection between the mind, body, and spirit and the importance of healing each of these. Ally loves seeing patients learn the interconnectivity between these three aspects of their health and watching them grow with this knowledge. She believes collaboration, education, and motivation are most important when caring for patients.
Ally has experience with individual and group counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, as well as grief processing, stress management, and crisis intervention. She has worked with individuals with anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse, chronic illness, low self-esteem, and life transitions. She is particularly passionate about women’s issues. Ally enjoys being able to provide a compassionate space to help patients manage symptoms and promote self-healing. She is also a member of the New York Mental Health Counselors Association.
Outside of work, Ally enjoys being active through exercise and outdoor activities including rock climbing and kayaking. She loves cooking, gardening, and spending time with her husband and son.
