Professional statement

Lydia Gordon received her MSW from New York University and is a Licensed Master of Social Work in New York and New Jersey. She specializes in working with individuals navigating difficult life transitions, feelings of being “stuck” or in a rut, and those wanting to improve their relationships. She also works with couples, specializing in pre-baby counseling and interracial relationships

With education in methods ranging from psychoanalysis to mindfulness-based approaches and Reiki, Lydia blends scientific and spiritual-based modalities to create treatment plans that effectively address individual needs on a mind, body, and spirit basis. Lydia strives to practice through an anti-oppressive framework and enjoys working with clients from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Message to clients

My approach is warm yet direct. I’ll ask you hard questions, challenge existing beliefs, and help you uncover and address what’s preventing you from living a more satisfying and fulfilling life. From journaling to somatic work to guided meditation, I integrate a variety of healing modalities into our work together, and will assign “homework” whenever we find it appropriate.

We’re all part of larger interconnected systems (families, communities, cultures, and societies) and I think it’s vital to consider these elements in our work together. Whether it’s harmful family dynamics or systemic oppression, I help you identify what isn’t within your control and harness what is. Together we’ll learn how you can better navigate the reality of the world we live in and shed self-blame for things that aren’t yours to hold onto.

I provide you with tools to trust your intuition, cope with uncomfortable emotions, and grow self-love. With a stronger sense of self you will move forward with clarity and confidence in ways that may surprise you.
