Andréa Mortensen, MFT-LP
I believe our unique identities and lived experiences inform our inner landscapes. Difficult emotions you may be feeling are often signals that highlight the parts of ourselves longing for connection, understanding, and attention. Together we will listen to these signals, build a safe haven for exploration, and create space for self-expression, openness, and growth.
There’s a deep comfort that develops when we feel safe and supported; and this experience can be healing and transformative. Centering warmth and empathy, I embrace a collaborative, person-centered approach, while utilizing practical tools to best suit your needs. I work with individuals, couples, and families who are navigating a variety of challenges and adjustment difficulties. As we collaborate, we will work towards creating healthy, more authentic ways of living.
I hold a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Manhattan College and have received training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness techniques, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), and The Gottman Method. I have experience working with anxiety, stress, depression, grief, relationship challenges, racial identity, self-esteem, eating disorders, and attachment trauma. I aim to provide culturally-sensitive and affirmative care.
I’m so glad you’re considering therapy, and I’d love to connect with you. Please feel free to contact me at (917) 382-9037, or message me through the form below.
