Jessina Laviera, LCSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Whether you are transitioning into your new identity as parent or grappling with an old emotional injury, I offer strength and compassion when you need it most. As a psychotherapist that focuses on how our past experiences inform our present-day perspective, I specialize in treating trauma-related symptoms including hyper-arousal/anger, dissociation, depression, anxiety and somatic disturbances. Utilizing skills from methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) , Motivational Interviewing and Structural Family Therapy allows me to be flexible and sensitive to the individual patient's needs as we set a course for treatment.
My practice is multi-culturally informed. I consider mind and body equally. I believe that providing a safe place, honoring your story, and imbuing the process with hope and humor can make the therapeutic experience not just valuable but enjoyable too!
I've been lucky to be a witness to many transformations over the past decade. I'd be honored to witness yours. **LIMITED-TIME OFFER: EMDR services for 50 dollars per session. Contact me for details.
