Professional statement

Hayat Yussuf is a Licensed Master Social Worker in New York City. She works with individuals who are dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, family, work issues and dissociative symptoms that have come to interfere with their daily functioning. Hayat also works with first and second generation Americans who are struggling with adjustment, cultural assimilation and inter-generational issues. Life is not a straight line, it’s often a winding road. If you’re looking for more meaning and passion in your life, she can certainly relate. After earning her MBA and working in a Fortune 500 company for fifteen years, she knew her heart needed more, so she returned to school to become a psychotherapist. Perhaps she can help you mindfully address career-related concerns, manage life-transitions, and help move past obstacles that are getting in the way of your success.

Hayat practice reflects an attachment and trauma-informed perspective. She incorporate talk therapy with mindfulness, and body-centered approaches to soothe and regulate an overactive nervous system and build resources and resilience to face life’s challenges. Some of those body-based modalities include EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and SE (Somatic Experiencing).

Hayat offers a kind and supportive space where clients work through their challenges they are facing. Hayat is a seasoned telehealth practitioner, and once the pandemic is over, she will resume in-person sessions for Resilience Lab.

Message to clients

My work is empowering clients by helping you learn about yourself, witnessing your progress and guiding you to navigate life challenges. My approach is to create a customized treatment plan for each client as I believe not all clients will benefit from the same approach. Together we will establish goals at the start of our initial interaction to identify the progression throughout each session.


Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)

Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse

Life transitions - Coping with difficult or impactful life changes, such as moving to a new area, relationship transitions, child rearing, or career changes; learning self-care to better manage resulting stress

Family issues - Promoting communication and supporting family members to address challenges and reduce conflict and distress

Loss, grief, and bereavement - Emotionally preparing for the anticipated passing of a loved one; managing feelings and reactions to a death or loss of significance; support during the process of healing and acceptance

BIPOC identity and related stress - Exploring topics of racial, cultural, and ethnic background as it relates to one’s family origins and personal identity as well as acknowledging the institutions we live in and how that affects us.
