Professional statement

Amy Stricoff is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Brooklyn, NY who specializes in working with adults in their 20s and 30s and parents. She has extensive experience working with clients who have anxiety due to external and internal pressures. She also helps parents who are navigating what family really means and how they can retain their individuality while being a parent.

Amy utilizes eclectic treatment approaches, but her work is very relational. She believes it’s important to build trust with her clients before digging into the challenges they are facing. She also helps her clients manage expectations, both inside and outside of sessions. Her treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy, and mindfulness practices. She helps her clients build the skills they need to succeed in whatever roles they take on, both professionally and personally.

Amy does not believe in a rigid treatment plan. Instead, she works with her clients to develop a plan that works for them, because at the end of the day, she wants her clients to feel heard and understood. She has two easily accessible office locations, in Dumbo and Park Slope, Brooklyn.


Message to clients

It's so important to have a therapeutic space where you can be heard, understood and supported. This is what therapy is all about and as a clinician it is important to me that you feel all of that when we are together. Put yourself first for an hour each week and come talk, learn about yourself and find ways to cope with the grind of daily life in New York City.
