Andrea Furgala, LISW-CP began working on her Masters in Social Work from Adelphi University in 2004. During the course of schooling, Mrs. Furgala got her start in residential treatment as a Transition Coordinator, working with children and families on successful transitions back into the community. She has always had a passion to provide support for not just the child, but for the family and caretakers as well. Mrs. Furgala graduated with her MSW in 2007 and took on a position as a Social Worker at Green Chimneys Residential Treatment Center in Brewster, NY. In 2010, a unique and exciting opportunity came to Mrs. Furgala to participate as a therapist in a research study for an adaptation of DBT for children (DBT-C). Mrs. Furgala spent a year and a half training on a weekly basis with Dr. Francheska Perepletchikova, the creator and researcher of DBT-C. Throughout the study, she continued to meet with Dr. Perepletchikova for a weekly consultation team where she received priceless coaching and ongoing support. The study concluded in 2015 with evidence to prove DBT-C's effectiveness! The results of the study indicate that DBT-C can be successfully used with pre-adolescent children with a range of psychiatric problems. Mrs. Furgala was intensively trained in 2020 in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), an evidence based treatment for OCD.
