Dasi Lefkowitz LMSWClinical Social Worker
I work with individuals and families, primarily with young adults and couples. I create a comfortable, warm atmosphere conducive to exploring issues relating to family dynamics, trauma and sexuality. I help my clients gain insight in their current relationships using the lens of previous attachments. There are many paths for self-reflection, and I incorporate many modalities into my therapy such as IFS, Mindfulness, and Family Systems, Imago etc, I often include various expressive arts tools for those who connect to art/drama. You are the primary expert in your life and I encourage my clients to be active participants in the therapy and communicate what is helpful to them.
My approach to couples therapy is to gently open up the avoided topics while creating a safe place for each member of the unit. Whether it’s different parenting styles or intimacy difficulties, I believe that the route to resolving these issues are by communicating about them, and understanding the deeper underlying motivations of oneself and one’s spouse. Gaining an awareness of how one’s family of origin impacts a current relationship is often a vital part of the process. My additional training in sex therapy (at Puah Institute) allows me to effectively address specific sexual issues in therapy.
Besides for my private practice, I’ve worked for several organizations over the years, thus expanding my exposure to different areas of concern, and gaining experience in treating a wide range of issues. I run groups for women with post-partum depression focusing on processing prior trauma and strengthening their attachment with their babies. I worked as the staff social worker in a therapeutic home for young women where I provided individual counseling as needed in addition to interfacing with outside mental health professionals. I’ve also had the opportunity to supervise beginning clinicians and non-professionals in their work. I provided individual and group supervision for mentors working with children and adolescents, and I am a certified supervisor for social work interns.
I believe that each individual has the ability to access their inner resources and move forward on a path of healing, and it is my honor to be part of that journey!
