Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
 therapist: Maricia Thompson,
In-Person in Queens, NY
Online in New York
I am a New York based LCSW with a passion and a vigor for helping others on their mental health journey. My therapy approach comes from a place of compassion where one of my main goals is making sure my client feel as supported, heard and empowered as possible. Therapy is not a one size fits all and the approach used with each client individually should reflect this. I help each client articulate their thoughts and feelings in order to get a better understanding of what is causing their depression/anxiety/stress/unhappiness. I approach therapy from an integrative perspective, taking interest in the clients cultural background and experiences and tailoring a therapeutic modality that is the best fit for them. Just like therapy, healing is also not a one size fits all and I understand that making the first steps into therapy, and towards that healing, may have been a difficult decision and I applaud your courage for making that first step. With your desire for change and my commitment to support and empower you, we will navigate a pace that works best for you to strengthen all aspects of your body and mind and the connection they have to each other.

Approach Description: My approach to therapy starts with meeting the client where they are. Creating a comfortable space for them to share openly, while helping them articulate their thoughts and feelings to get a better understanding of what is causing their distress. Using combined modalities that encompass aspects of CBT, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness and a Strength Based approach amongst others, the client and I work as a dyad to re-author their past in order to map a more emotionally satisfying present/future. I see clients who experience anxiety, depression, anger issues, esteem issues LGBTQ+ issues, stress management, strain in relationships with family, friends or romantic partners, life transitions and adjustment problems and some others

Maricia Thompson Practice Description
My intention is that my clients walk away from our sessions feeling a sense of catharsis, accomplishment and hope, in combination with an eagerness to put in the work that is necessary to create positive change in their life. In order to further ensure that what is processed and learned in session can be successfully incorporated into real world practice, homework that encompasses what was covered in session is assigned and reviewed in upcoming sessions.
