Risha London Nathan is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Manhattan who also sees clients remotely in both New York and California and Connecticut. She specializes in helping clients build self-esteem, navigate relationship challenges, or manage their depression or anxiety. She especially loves learning as much as she can about an individual before creating a well-rounded treatment plan that addresses all of their needs and goals.
Risha utilizes a therapy approach that is Humanistic, client-centered, and mindful. She does not subscribe to one kind of modality but instead implements specific tools and approaches whenever appropriate. Her approach might be more grounded in psychodynamic therapy when a client first starts seeing her, but it can evolve into something more behavioral and goal-oriented as the client progresses. She particularly enjoys working with clients who want to develop more effective communication skills and become more confident in who they are and what they believe in.
Risha’s passion for her work is evident the moment you meet her, and she strives to help her clients become more empowered and in control of their lives.
