Chamin Ajjan, MS, LCSW, ACT, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Brooklyn
I truly value the work I do and the courage and willingness it takes to for my clients to engage in self-exploration. Therefore, I make every effort to honor this process and create a safe, non-judgemental, comfortable and supportive space where clients can begin to feel empowered and gain more control over their life struggles. I offer affordable, thoughtful and sensitive care to individuals, couples and groups dealing with issues related to: Sex Therapy, Sexual Dysfunction, Depression, Anxiety, Childhood Sexual Abuse Survivors, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Transitions, Stress Reduction, Relationships and LGBT.
I have a great deal of interest in working with dating singles, couples, and those looking to resolve relationship problems. As an intimacy expert, I have had extensive training and experience in sex therapy and I am the author of Seeking Soulmate: Ditch Dating Distress and Find Real Connection.
I am trained and certified in CBT by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. Using mindful presence and a clinically skillful approach is central to my work. Expressing empathy and compassion I feel for my clients is essential to building the genuine therapeutic relationships that develop through collaboration to achieve goals.

Chamin Ajjan's Groups

Melissa's Group for Survivors

Women Survivors of any type of childhood sexual abuse are invited to join this group. I personally designed it to help women understand the effects of trauma, reduce feelings of shame and guilt, and empower group members in a safe and confidential environment. This 12-session group progresses through 3 stages: Trauma and Its Manifestations, Telling Your Story, and Empowerment. Groups are limited to 3-5 members to ensure the safety and the comfort they need to disclose difficult information.
