He/Him/HisLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Adam Kaufman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working remotely in California and New York. Adam is passionate about helping individuals and couples from the Millennial and Gen X age groups. Many of Adam’s clients feel overwhelmed when they’re trying to find a sense of well-being while juggling their careers, partners, children, and more. They feel like their attention is getting pulled in every direction, leaving them physically and emotionally exhausted. This might leave them in an existential crisis, or numb to their emotions through addictions or unhealthy behaviors. Turning to therapy, they seek a feeling of purpose and a way to live a healthier life.
Adam’s approach to working with clients is active and empathetic. He helps clients learn how to rewrite the patterns that hold them back from feeling present with themselves or connected to others. Adam practices mindfulness-based therapy combined with Internal Family Systems therapy. Clients also learn more about what’s important to them through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which emphasizes the role of values in a person’s life, steering them toward their own unique north star.
Adam earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from New York University and has over 10 years of experience working as a clinician. His own journey of growth/development allows him to connect with others who seek fulfillment and peace in their lives.
