Hi, I’m

Yocheved Newman

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I’m excited to introduce myself and to have this wonderful opportunity of working with this unique community and practice. If there is one thing I have learned from my experience is that it is never too late. Never too late to start healing old wounds and never too late to live a wholesome and meaningful life; full of joy, growth and healthy meaningful relationships. I am here to assist you as you achieve these things. Small steps will make big changes. My experience working with a diverse and multicultural clientele has allows me the ability to see everyone with kindness and unconditional positive regard. Together we can pinpoint core issues that are getting in the way of living your best life, and figure out how to change them so you can achieve success. I am trained in EMDR and find that this is a great modality for trauma, and is helpful for individuals who feel “stuck” as well. Forging a connection and strong rapport, true empathy and being a good listener make me a committed and practitioner.
