Berta Garcia Bustamante is a Licensed Master Social Worker based in New York City. She works with individuals, couples and groups across the lifespan, with a focus on professional women. Many of Berta's clients have found amazing success in their careers, but struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives. Berta is particularly sensitive to the issues of first-generation immigrant clients, and clients facing moments of transition, like a move to the city, job loss, divorce or breakup; times when the delicate balance feels shaky and symptoms of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt can emerge. Berta identifies as a BIPOC woman, is fluent in Spanish and also works as a divorce & custody coach. She is a member of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS).
