Michael Kariyev is a licensed clinical social worker with a private practice in Midtown Manhattan. He works with adults, couples, and children, and uses a blend of treatment approaches to provide his clients with trauma-informed care. In addition to his trauma work, Michael also supports clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, family conflict, and relationship issues.
Michael draws from a wide range of modalities to engage them in an appropriate therapy for their experiences and goals. He may use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for a client who is new to therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for a client with a trauma history, and psychodynamic work to ground clients and talk through their interests and experiences, or he may combine approaches. He also enjoys using art and sand therapy for both children and adults, particularly when clients are having a hard time expressing themselves verbally.
Michael has received extensive post-masters training, including training in Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and culturally competent mental health care. He received his Masters in Social Work from Long Island University. Michael's office is centrally located 3 minutes from Grand central station and 7 minutes from Bryant Park.
