Our Mission...

Nicoletta Pallotta, MD, LCSW
CEO & Founder

“22 years ago, I opened my first Counseling Practice in Brooklyn, New York. I had a vision of building a successful psychotherapy center for women, focusing on their individual emotional struggles.

With more than two decades of professional growth and personal soul searching, I decided I wanted to reach a wider and diverse population of women. It was time for me to grow BCS, to develop additional Counseling Services throughout Brooklyn and introduce online counseling services.

With the unwavering help and support of the BCS team, our mission continues to be, designing mental health programs that will enable the emotional growth of women from our communities.

Our new BCS logo is symbolic of the road we have traveled, embracing the diversity and growth we have achieved and our continued mission to create programs that help all women.”
