Kaylen Hagadorn is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at Cobb Psychotherapy LCSW in Midtown, Manhattan who specializes in trauma and working with emerging adults in their 20s and 30s. She has extensive experience helping individuals who have experienced sexual assault or domestic violence.

She helps her clients reframe negative thought patterns and develop healthier coping strategies.

Message to clients
I believe that therapy is for everyone, and together we can help you become the best version of yourself. I work with individuals who are interested in improving their mental health, developing their self-esteem, and managing their emotions. I help people navigate challenges in their lives, feel heard, and create meaningful relationships. I also specialize in working with trauma/PTSD, and approach my work through a client-centered, anti-oppressive, and trauma informed lens.
