Katherine Hughes is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who works with adolescents and adults. She believes that everyone has inherent worth, strengths, and abilities that can be harnessed to help overcome life’s struggles and build resiliency. She understands that there are many factors that influence behaviors and there are likewise many ways to approach those behaviors to improve lives.
Katherine utilizes many modalities in her work with clients, striving to tailor her approach to her clients’ strengths, needs, and learning styles. She incorporates a trauma-informed perspective and utilizes strategies from cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, IFS and various mindfulness models. Katherine has also been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and uses this method to help ease the symptoms of trauma. Traditional talk therapy models that often rely on a “retelling” of the traumatic event, often leave clients dysregulated and unsafe. EMDR strategies begin by anchoring client strengths and building resources so that each client has the internal foundation necessary to work through the traumatic event without compromising safety.
Katherine graduated with an MS in social work from the University at Buffalo in 2013. She has experience working with adolescents, families, and individuals in both private and non-profit settings across the country. She has expertise in helping people who are suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, dissociation, self-harm, substance abuse, eating disorders as well as other issues pertaining to life transitions.
Katherine is dedicated to creating a warm and collaborative space to address the concerns of clients and help them develop their skills and abilities to live the lives they envision for themselves. Katherine can be reached at 646-665-1391 or at KatherineHugheslcsw@gmail.com
