Professional statement

Shivon Ramadhin is a clinical social worker/ psychotherapist located in Union Square, Manhattan. She offers sessions both in person and online.

With a strong emphasis on fostering well-being within diverse communities, she brings a wealth of expertise in working with individuals of color who have experienced complex trauma, particularly within South Asian and Caribbean populations. Shivon's professional focus revolves around providing comprehensive individual and couples therapy to adults and interracial couples.

She leverages a diverse set of evidence-based and somatic modalities to tailor her approach, including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy, the Gottman Method, and ongoing training in Somatic Experiencing® (SEI).

She is passionate about creating a supportive and inclusive environment for her clients, ensuring their unique needs are met with empathy and precision.
