Professional statement

Yasmin Naaman is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Valley Stream, NY who specializes in anxiety, relationships, depression, panic disorders, and life transitions. Her practice is open to women across the lifespan, and she frequently works with women of color.

Clients who seek Yasmin's support are often struggling with self-doubt. They may find themselves falling short of their own expectations, or stressed about reaching various goals they've set for themselves. Yasmin's approach to treatment combines insight-oriented therapies like psychodynamic with more skills-based modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). She recommends mindfulness practices where helpful, and also welcomes clients for coaching, which can be especially effective for stress management and life organization.

Yasmin often initiates sessions by coming up with tangible goals for treatment, which she and the client will reference and reassess throughout the course of their time together. She is deeply focused on growth, and looks forward to working with you on your journey.
