Star Sawyer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the Chelsea and Williamsburg neighborhoods of New York City. For the past decade, she has worked with students and young professionals navigating a range of challenges including work and school-related stress and anxiety, adjusting to a new environment, relationships and dating, self-esteem, and family conflicts.
Star gently guides each client in developing a greater understanding of themselves and increasing their capacity to fully engage in the world. She primarily uses relational and insight-oriented techniques, helping clients to better recognize their relationship patterns and the experiences that influence their self-knowledge. Star also draws upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other behavioral approaches to support clients in developing coping and emotional self-regulation skills.
Star's style is warm, direct and supportive. She received her Master's in Social Work from New York University in 2007 and completed training at the Ackerman Institute, enabling her to work effectively with clients who have complicated family histories. She welcomes adults of all ages and backgrounds into her practice.
