Are you ready to rediscover living without the burden of emotional distress? I am an experienced, warm, and compassionate clinical social worker with years of experience treating clients with a variety of mental health conditions. I received my social work degree at Fordham University in New York City. My first year of internship was in the public school system working with at-risk teens. During my second year, I worked with couples experiencing infertility and seeking adoption. I did my post-masters training in Couples and Family therapy at Ackerman Institute for the Family in New York City. I am a mother and step-mother to nine children and four dogs.

Mary Karlan Practice Details

Therapy Sessions Mary Karlan Practice Description
Are you tired of “talk therapy” which is supportive, but does not equip you to make real, lasting changes to your life when you have left the therapy room? I will work collaboratively with you to design a treatment plan that will define goals, understand obstacles and map out the best approach to help you get where you want to go. In addition, “homework” is often given to work on between sessions as added support. Many of my clients experience meaningful and lasting change within a relatively brief number of sessions.
