BS, Southern Connecticut State University // MSW, Fordham University

Amelia Tabacco joins Anxiety Institute from Fordham University where she will graduate in May, 2025 as a Master of Social Work with eligibility for licensure as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Amelia regularly practices her applied behavior analysis (ABA) skills while working closely with a five-year-old child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Amelia is eager to further her training in exposure response prevention therapy (ERP) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) while at Anxiety Institute.

In her free time, Amelia enjoys hiking with her dog and capturing photographs along the way. Amelia considers being immersed in the outdoors as ecotherapy, a form of therapy where exposure to nature is an integral component, and an avenue she intends to explore.

Her Inspiration:

Following the events of 9/11/2001, I was diagnosed with OCD. Mental health professionals became critical in my life as I worked through the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of mental healthcare. Ever since my successful experience in therapy, I have been driven by a mission to guide, inspire, and educate young people through this critical juncture in their lives.
