Professional statement

Rebecca Gerstein is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Flatiron District in Manhattan who specializes in working with young adults in their 20s and 30s who are navigating grief and loss, including losing a family member to suicide or sudden illness. She also has expertise in helping individuals, couples, and families navigate major life transitions. Her practice is LGBTQ affirming, anti-racist/anti-oppressive, and body positive.

Rebecca takes a strength-based treatment approach that is collaborative and tailored to the needs of each client. She helps her clients understand that grief is not linear and permanent closure is not the goal. Instead, she works with them to name their emotions and counter negative thoughts, particularly around guilt and shame. She frequently incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and mindfulness practices.

Rebecca offers a nonjudgmental, safe space for clients to heal and explore their emotions and pain. She received training in grief and loss at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. Her office is conveniently located near the 23rd. Street subway station.
