Bianca Del Gatto, LMHC


I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of New York and owner of Self First Counseling, I began my career working in an OPWDD residential facility then transitioned to Northwell Health’s Zucker Hillside Hospital’s inpatient and outpatient facilities, helping individuals meet their recovery goals. I have clinical experience working specifically with seniors and women, including perinatal clients, as well as extensive outpatient experience helping clients from all stages of life with managing vocational struggles. As a caregiver myself, it is my goal to utilize these experiences to provide personalized therapy to help you juggle the complexity of managing the care of others while trying to maintain work, personal obligations, and self-care.

I look forward to speaking with you,

As a counselor, it's my goal to empower you by providing a safe space to explore/identify goals, gain clarity on your values and process your experiences. Therapy is a personal experience, which is why I use a variety of therapy techniques based on your individual needs. This may include but is not limited to;

  • Solution focused therapy

  • Motivational interviewing

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy

  • Trauma informed counseling.


Majority of my clients are adults who identify as caregivers. Caregiving is defined as taking care of adults or minors in your personal or professional life. This role can often lead to burnout, which is why it is important to find small ways to prioritize yourself and work with a therapist who understands the unique struggles of those managing their own lives, while navigating the health management of others.
