Aida Qasim

I work with adults, adolescents, couples and families in my areas of expertise that include relationships, stress management, depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting, learning, career development, transitions and social justice. I have worked in hospital, educational and outpatient settings. I have graduated with a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work from NYU. I am a licensed clinical social worker, certified school social worker and a certified clinical supervisor.

I value cultural competence and have significant experience with intersectional identities and in working with diverse populations both internationally and locally. I listen with an open mind in how our various identities and our interactions with systems affect our world view and general mental health.

In addition to problem solving, I believe the task of therapy is to better understand ourselves, one another, and our lived experiences in this world in order to effectively effect change. My approach is evidence based, hands on, and goal oriented.

Modalities: CBT, DBT, Bowen Family Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Strength Based Therapy

Expertise: Relationships, stress management, depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting, learning, and career development, transitions, and marginalization
