Professional statement

Kimberly Norasing is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in New York. Kim specializes in helping clients through major life transitions, anxiety, depression, and stress at work. As a second generation immigrant and child of refugees, Kim enjoys supporting clients who manage relational and cultural stress, immigration stress, and the pressure of fitting into multiple roles. Many of her clients seek therapy as a way to process through their feelings and grow their understanding of themselves, as well as decrease stress levels.

Kim practices a range of evidence-based treatment modalities that are person-centered, strengths-based, and focus on self-determination in her work with clients. She teaches clients how to monitor their thoughts for unhealthy patterns, including negative self-talk and cognitive distortions that lead to feelings of low self-worth. She also helps clients identify their motivations and use their motivations to create behavioral change. Clients learn how to cope with difficult emotions and practice effective self-care. They also have an opportunity to unpack how their familial and cultural expectations impact their identities, interests, needs, and relationships in a comfortable, compassionate atmosphere.

Kim earned a Master’s degree in Social Work at Columbia University School of Social Work. She helps clients identify their mental health goals and stay on the pathway towards progress. Kim strives to empower clients to exploring their authentic identities and making healthy change in their daily routines.


Message to clients

I work with multi-cultural individuals, first- and second-generation immigrants experiencing anxiety, stress, anger from: the many roles and identities they may hold; attempting to build their own lives; or creating boundaries. All while trying to navigate their family of origin, loved ones, peers, and cultural and societal expectations.

You may be feeling a sense of loneliness, sadness, confusion, stress, anger, general anxiety. Mentally and physically, you may be exhausted. You may be finding yourself going through negative thought and behavior loops. Or you want to be mindful of your family, loved ones, peers, but don’t know how to balance them with your own wants and needs.

As a therapist, my warm and relaxed approach focuses on the strength and self-determination that you already possess. My role is to provide a comfortable space for you to flesh out the issues you are experiencing; to help develop insight, self-esteem and confidence; and to create new goals, thoughts and behavior patterns. I will use different treatment approaches dependent on what you bring to the session and your identified goals.
