Yael Menahem, LCSW




Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Description of Practice/Services Offered

I am a licensed clinical social worker who has postgraduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy from the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy. I graduated with a Master of Social Work from Fordham University in 2009. In addition to my private practice, I am a psychotherapist who works with adolescents and adults at the Blanton-Peale Counseling Center in Manhattan. I have also worked at the City’s Employee Assistance Program with people presenting with substance abuse, domestic violence, debt and mood disorders that affected their ability to work and manage their lives.

I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, relationship and work stress and issues related to cultural assimilation. I am originally from Israel so one area of specialization is the immigration experience and issues that arise related to leaving one’s home country and adjusting to life in the United States. I also offer sessions in Hebrew and I have Saturday office hours.

I integrate different treatment modalities such as Psychodynamic, Relational, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Mindfulness techniques
