Professional statement

Courtney Policano is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York City who specializes in anxiety, depression, work stress, life transitions, grief and loss, and trauma from early childhood experiences. She also has an expertise in maternal mental health.

Courtney understands the stressors of city living can be overwhelming, and she enjoys helping clients strike a balance between achieving their goals and maintaining self-care and self-compassion. When working with clients who are mothers, including first-time moms, she knows that the range of emotions that accompany early parenthood can lead to internalized pressure. Courtney helps her clients examine these negative thoughts and feelings in order to push back against shame and isolation.

Courtney is unerringly warm, compassionate, and an engaged listener for every individual who walks in her door. She looks forward to helping you tap into your inner resilience, and work towards authentic growth.

I look forward to meeting you.
