Dr. Soraya Sawicki

(LCSW, MSW)

About Me

My name is Dr.Soraya Sawicki, MSW, LCSW. I have more than 15 years of experience working in Mental Health, after working in New York, I moved to Connecticut with the idea of setting up a private practice. I attended the City College of New York, where I completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology, and then attended Yeshiva University, where I graduated with a Masters In Social Work, with a concentration on clinical studies. I have a Doctorate of Social Work, from Capella University, with a concentration on research and leadership, and I am a certified Life Coach. My experience includes running programs for the States of New York and Connecticut. I work with teens, young adults, couples, and families. I have worked in different areas such as immigration, teenage pregnancy, abuse, grief and loss, divorce, depression, anxiety, and other life issues. I have extensive experience in the area of trauma and PTSD. I enjoy working with individuals in academic settings who need motivation and empowerment. My practice includes a Holistic component ( I am a Reiki practitioner), where we integrate energy healing with psychotherapy. I am a strong believer of the mind, body and spirit connection for overall well-being. I respect and care for my patients. Using a cognitive- approach, I believe that being person-centered is the key to my success as a counselor. I am empathetic, respectful and non-judgemental while providing unconditional emotional support. I believe that the first step in healing is having the strength to seek help. The journey is shorter when you are not alone. I provide online therapy in CT and New York.

Soraya has been responsive and accommodating from the very beginning. She listens and responds to my questions and concerns. She has helped me through some extremely stressful days and I appreciate her counseling. I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings with her. I would confidently recommend her to others.
