PINNY FARKAS, LCSW

Personal struggles are opportunities for growth.
Let's work together to overcome self-defeating thoughts and behaviors.

I am a licensed clinical social worker, with extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

If you are struggling with emotional discomfort and are in need of a therapist in NYC or Cedarhurst, I will guide you through a therapeutic process of growth, introspection, self-discovery, and self-actualization. I specialize in counseling teenagers and young adults, but enjoy working with people of all ages.

AREAS OF FOCUS

  • TEENAGERS
    TEENAGERS

    Being a teenager is challenging, and even scary at times. The good news is you're not alone; it is a normal part of growing pains. There are, however, times when teens get stuck or experience an overwhelming amount of stress.  Teens who are struggling with feelings of depression and/or anxiety need all the support they can get.  Teens and parents need to know that life can get better. Below is a list of some common issues. If you are a teenager or a parent of a teenager who is struggling with any of these challenges, it is a good indication that he or she would benefit from therapy.

    • School and social pressure
    • Anger management
    • Depression
    • Trust issues
    • Communicating  with parents
    • Self image
    • Internet and social media
    • Family life
  • YOUNG ADULTS
    YOUNG ADULTS

    Life as a young adult brings with it many challenges.

    • self identity
    • career path
    • life goals
    • social pressure
    • preparing for marriage
    • starting a family
    • marriage /partner conflict
    • financial stress
    • feeling part of a community
    • raising children

    These are all common stressors you may face as a young adult in addition to the normal stressors of everyday life. These can often lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness. The good news is that through therapy your life can improve and you'll begin to feel better. Take the first step in the right direction, and call me for a free 15 minute phone consultation.
