She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Emily Schuback is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in New York who works with individuals across the lifespan, with a focus on young adults. Many of her clients have found great success in their careers or academically, but struggle to feel connected in their relationships or at peace in their daily lives. Emily is particularly sensitive to clients facing moments of transition, like a move to the city, job loss, or breakup, when things can feel unsteady, and symptoms of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt can emerge.
Emily utilizes a relational psychodynamic approach with her clients, but also draws on cognitive and behavioral techniques, coping skills development, problem solving and other pragmatic ways of helping address the issues brought in. She works to help clients understand self-awareness and compassion, while understanding the influence of past challenges (including trauma) on present behaviors and emotions. Emily's style is interactive, non-judgmental, and positions clients as the experts on where they are now, and where they want to go. As a trauma-informed therapist, Emily is sensitive to the influence of past experiences on present challenges, and works closely with clients to reframe the narrative of their life in a way that increases self-confidence and compassion.
Emily’s first priority in starting with a new client is ensuring that they feel safe, heard, and like an equal partner in the therapeutic process. As a seasoned telehealth provider, she offers the convenience of remote sessions to help make therapy more accessible.
