Professional statement

Roopa Ramkumar is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker offering online sessions for adults and adolescents in New York. Many of her clients seek out therapy for relief from thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that are causing them pain. Roopa collaborates with her clients to identify the source of their difficulties, and how they can create lasting and meaningful change in their lives.

In her practice, Roopa uses both insight-oriented and skills-based approaches, believing it is important to adapt her approach to her clients’ unique needs. She has received training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).

Roopa specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image concerns. Understanding that these issues do not exist in a vacuum, she is passionate about addressing factors that impact self-image, including race and cultural identity, sexuality and gender identity, relationship concerns, anxiety, and trauma.
