Professional statement

Eda Davenport is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) at Open-Minded Therapy in Valley Stream, New York. Eda’s expertise is in working with clients navigating anxiety, depression, ADHD, grief, and chemical dependency. As a bilingual (English and Spanish) and bicultural therapist, Eda welcomes clients of all identities to her practice, aiming to take a client-centered approach to suit the specific needs of each of her clients.

Eda’s therapeutic intention is to create a trusting and non-judgmental environment, allowing clients to explore the depths of their emotions and gain insight into the unique challenges they face. To accomplish this, she utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a skills-based therapeutic approach that teaches clients to develop healthier coping strategies and foster positive change in their lives. She also encourages the integration of physical wellness and the mind-body connection into sessions, encouraging clients to build strength and resilience in the process of healing.

Eda obtained her Master of Social Work degree from Hunter College, where she specialized in social work administration and clinical practice. She has since gained over 20 years of experience in the social work field in both administrative and clinical roles. She ultimately believes that clients are the experts in their own lives and enjoys actively collaborating with clients as they work through their difficult times.


Message to clients

Dear clients,

I want to take a moment to welcome you and express my gratitude for choosing me as your guide on this therapeutic journey. As we embark on this transformative experience together, I believe it is essential for you to have a clear understanding of what you can expect from our sessions.

First and foremost, I want you to know that you are not alone in this process. I am here to provide a safe and supportive space where you can openly share your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. My intention is to create a trusting and non-judgmental environment, allowing you to explore the depths of your emotions and gain insight into the challenges you face.

Throughout our sessions, I hope to empower you to discover your own inner strength and resilience. While I may offer guidance and tools, ultimately, you are the expert on your own life. My role is to facilitate self-reflection, encourage self-awareness, and assist you in uncovering your unique path towards healing and personal growth.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, and together we can work towards understanding the root causes of your struggles, developing coping strategies, and fostering positive change. Remember, progress takes time, and setbacks are a natural part of the journey. My hope for you is that you approach this process with patience, compassion, and a willingness to embrace self-discovery.

Thank you for entrusting me with your therapeutic needs. I am genuinely honored to be a part of your growth and well-being
