Kim O'Connor is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Westchester, NY who specializes in parenting, anxiety, relationships, work stressors, and depression.
Kim's practice is open to individual adults, couples, children, teens, as well as clients for group therapy sessions. She is skilled in helping clients navigate such life adjustments as raising a family, entering or ending a romantic relationship, and deciding on a desired academic or career course. She also welcomes clients who are seeking anger management skills, for themselves or loved ones.
Kim takes an eclectic approach to treatment, infusing her psychodynamic training with components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This blend empowers clients with the opportunity to gain perspective and greater self-awareness, while also developing skills for managing difficult situations and emotions.
When working with parents, Kim emphasizes the power of the family structure, which helps clients understand how they can affect positive change within their unit. She also recommends mindfulness practices where helpful. When working with children and adolescents, Kim understands the pressures of academic rigor, and helps clients identify and navigate symptoms of perfectionism.
Kim’s practice is located in Rye, where she looks forward to working with you.
