Professional statement

Beth Shuzman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Manhattan. She sees clients navigating a range of challenges including anxiety, relationships. trauma, depression, and substance use.

Having completed post-graduate education at the Trauma Studies Center, Beth is an expert in trauma recovery, helping her clients feel more stabilized and find relief from physical and emotional symptoms. She meets clients where they are to gently guide them as they process distressing memories and uncover their inner resilience.

Message to clients

Healing is a collaborative process. My goal is to help you live a lighter, more fulfilling life by transforming your mental and emotional health. Therapy revolves around meeting you where you are, and working together to build a customized, holistic treatment plan. My clients understand that mental/emotional well being is pursued through a foundational environment of support, vulnerability and trust. If you have trouble in relationships, suffer from obsessive thought patterns/behaviors, or experience anxiety or potential forms of depression related to specific incidents or general mood, there is a way to wellness, and I'm here to help.
