Linda Giuliano is the Program Director of The Center for Resiliency and Wellness at Greenwich House. In 2021, she facilitated the merger of GH’s two existing mental health clinics to form CRW, which offers inter-generational trauma-informed mental health services for clients ages 3 to 100. She recruited new staff to better reflect the diversity of clients that the Center serves today. Giuliano collaborated with the new executive leadership to expand linkages and increase the number of clients served.
Giuliano joined Greenwich House in 1992 as Senior Psychotherapist for The AIDS Mental Health Project (AMH), an innovative psychotherapy program, serving persons with AIDS, including those active with substance addictions. During her 17 year tenure with AMH, Ms. Giuliano provided clinical supervision of staff, individual and group therapies, as well as end-of-life care.
Giuliano returned to Greenwich House in 2010 and served as Primary Therapist and Assistant Clinical Director for their Senior Health and Consultation Center. She became Program Director in 2017, guiding the behavioral health team through a series of programmatic transitions. During the onset of the pandemic in 2020, she led interdisciplinary teams pivoting from in-person to remote methods, and to hybrid options. This allowed GH to continue helping hundreds of clients with serious mental health needs.
For most of her career, Giuliano has concentrated on the mental health of specialized populations i.e. geriatric clients, long-term survivors of AIDS, LGBTQ and performing artists. She also worked as the hospice social worker for St. Vincent’s Pax Christi Hospice Manhattan Home Care, Village Care AIDS Day Treatment Program, Goddard Riverside Headstart Program and other entities.
Giuliano obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Vassar College (NY) and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Hunter College School of Social Work. She has Movement Certification from The New School and Core Energetic Certification from Carol Jud Intensive (NY). Ms. Giuliano studied at Union Theological Seminary, and served as a Chaplaincy intern (The Hospital Chaplaincy Inc.) and intern minister (The First Unitarian Church of Brooklyn Heights). These experiences, along with skills in playwriting and play development, inform her therapeutic lens.
