Professional statement

Emily Rubin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Financial District of Manhattan. Her areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, work environment issues, and stress management. She often sees clients who are questioning a component of their identity, such as their relationship to their partner or family, their sexuality, or their career directions.

Emily takes a collaborative approach, pulling from a variety of therapeutic modalities to allow her to deeply understand each client’s history and current stressors. Sessions with Emily are goal oriented, using techniques from skills-based therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. She works with clients to set the pace that’s right for them, and supports them on their process towards getting where they want to be.

Emily also welcomes couples at all stages of their relationship. Couples often come to see her to seek resolution for relationship stressors like communication issues or intimacy challenges, as well as open relationships or alternative coupling.

Emily works to empower her clients with the knowledge to tend to their own overall well-being, and is open to adults, young adults and couples. Her practice is located steps from the Fulton street and Cortlandt street stations with access to A/C, J/Z, 2/3, 4/5 and R/W. She looks forward to meeting you!

Message to clients

I believe in the collaborative process of therapy, and work to build a safe, supportive environment for client’s to process their stressors, deeper traumas or insecurities, and explore aspects of future opportunities. I want clients to look forward to sessions without concerns around judgement or right and wrong, and use the space as practice for wherever their journey is going.
