Professional statement

Celina Pipman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Hurley, NY. She has been practicing psychotherapy for 30 years and has gained a deep understanding of treating anxiety and depression.

Celina is profoundly aware of the challenging times society is facing. The last two and a half years have been difficult for most people. Several factors have led to increased vulnerability—a pandemic, politics, financial strains, loss, trauma, and excessive exposure to social media have demanded constant adaptation to the point of exhaustion.

Celina has fine-tuned her eclectic practice to address the unique stresses of the times in which we live. Being a registered yoga teacher, she first combines mindfulness and yoga to help clients release stress and calm their nervous systems. She then utilizes her extensive training in Emotional Focus Therapy to assist clients in understanding their unique emotional triggers, as well as their reactions to these triggers. With Celina's help, these emotions are unveiled in a safe environment, after which clients learn to form new and empowering narratives.

As an immigrant, Celina is genuinely attuned to different cultures and belief systems. She strives for an open heart and non-judgemental view in her practice. She offers her services in English and Spanish.


Message to clients

My work aims to assist you in making minor adjustments to release mental blocks and pre-written narratives that we all carry in our minds, to detach from unnecessary loyalties and legacies that may weigh you down. In our time together, I intend to help you dare to let go of the things that no longer serve you. It takes patience, but envisioning and creating change is certainly doable and, most importantly, well worth it. Over time and through practice, we aim to more readily connect the dots between those mental narratives and their roots. The more we do this, the more empowered you will feel in navigating life’s challenges moving forward. It is my pleasure to share this journey with you, and I hope to hear from you.
