Naomi Marton is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Upper West Side of Manhattan who specializes in anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem, and trauma. She has extensive experience working with adults across the lifespan. Many of her clients are experiencing a major adjustment triggered by a life event, such as the end of a relationship, a new job, or the loss of a loved one.
Naomi takes an eclectic approach that utilizes a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychoanalytic Therapy to not only help clients gain better insight into who they are but also learn new coping strategies to grow and manage their symptoms. She also challenges her clients to examine their core beliefs and assumptions and determine what is accurate and helpful versus what is actually triggering their anxiety or depression. Naomi also ensures her clients are taking part in self care by checking in on their social supports and sleeping and eating habits. In addition, she frequently integrates mindfulness practices into sessions.
Naomi is trained in Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR), which can effectively help clients with a history of trauma learn how to regulate their emotions and build healthy and strong relationships. She skillfully works with her clients to take control of the narrative and find meaning in their experience(s).
Naomi’s goal is to create a non-judgmental and supportive environment, while at the same time challenging individuals to explore barriers getting in the way. After receiving her MSW at Hunter College School of Social Work, she completed post-graduate training at the Manhattan Institute for Psychoanalysis. Her office is located near the 86th. Street subway station.
