Professional statement

Dr. Kristin Schaefer-Schiumo is a Clinical Psychologist who welcomes adults and adolescents to her practice in Long Island, New York. She often sees clients for anxiety, depression, and trauma. Additionally, she works with couples and families.

When clients visit Dr. Schaefer-Schiumo, they are often finding that their symptoms of anxiety are impacting their professional life or academic performance. Others feel stuck in a negative headspace, and may find themselves ruminating over situations or catastrophizing possible scenarios on a regular basis.

Dr. Schaefer Schiumo works from a creative, integrative lens combining mindfulness based, cognitive, body-based and experiential approaches. She is strengths-based and client-focused, and dedicated to helping clients utilize their innate strengths in order to move forward during difficult experiences and situations.

In addition to her private practice, Dr. Schaefer-Schiumo is a professor at Long Island University. She looks forward to working with you.


Message to clients

I believe that human beings are strong and resilient. We are also creatures of habit, and sometimes habits can get in the way of our well being. No matter what the challenges we currently face, we can use our naturally given strengths and resources to move through difficult experiences. A successful therapeutic relationship begins and ends with connection and trust. Always client focused, I will help you flourish so you can live your best life. I combine supportive compassion and authenticity with gentle-and targeted intervention, a combination that truly gets results. We will find your strengths and use them to help you shed light on how you think, respond and behave. Old, unwelcome patterns will be discarded and you will be truly successful.
