Professional statement

Liza Mordkovich is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and Licensed Master Social Worker who offers in-home, remote video, and phone sessions in addition to having an office in both Brooklyn and Chelsea, New York. She specializes in anxiety and perinatal mental health. She is passionate about helping individuals conquer anxiety, addiction, stress and providing perinatal wellness services. She especially enjoys helping women with anxiety disorders—including severe panic attacks and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)—who are navigating pregnancy and motherhood. She also has extensive experience in substance use, trauma, and parenting coaching. Liza works with parents, teaching them to practice mindfulness, strengthen their relationship, and take care of themselves amidst the disruption of having a new baby in the household.

She combines evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT) to help individuals cope with emotional distress. She also draws from mindfulness, meditation, hypnotherapy, art therapy and trauma focused approaches to best tailor treatment. Many of her clients are navigating life transitions, and stress management is a key component in successfully managing these changes. Her approach is warm, eclectic, emphatic, compassionate, and solution oriented.

Outside of private practice, Liza works as a coordinator for Postpartum Support International (PSI) and is also president of the Manhattan chapter of International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN). Her mission is to help individuals overcome obstacles, improve relationships and lead a gratifying and joyful life! Her Brooklyn office is located in Brooklyn Heights, just steps from the Borough Hall subway station and her Chelsea office is conveniently located near Penn Station.
