Welcome to my Practice.
My name is Celina Pipman, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Hurley-Kingston area, NY.
I have practiced psychotherapy for 30 years and have gained a deep understanding of treating anxiety and depression.
I am profoundly aware of the challenging times we are facing. The last three a years have been difficult for most people. Several factors have led to increased vulnerability. Pandemic, politics, financial strains, loss, trauma, and excessive exposure to social media have all demanding constant attention from us to the point of exhaustion. As a result, I adapted my practice to address the unique stresses of the times in which we are living.
I am an eclectic practitioner. As a registered yoga teacher, I enjoy combining mindfulness and yoga to assist my clients in releasing the stress overload of modern times and calming their nervous systems. My logo incorporates the word “PariNama”, which translates to “transformation” in Sanskrit. Through the use of tools like breath and meditation we can reverse suffering from stress and truly transform.
I also utilize my extensive training in Emotional Focus Therapy (EFT) to assist my clients, both individuals and couples, in understanding their unique emotional triggers and reactions to these triggers. With my help, these emotions are unveiled in a safe environment, after which clients learn to form new and empowering narratives. In addition, through our discussions, I support and invite my clients to start visualizing the change they want to achieve, but also begin noticing the obstructions that might keep them stagnated and stressed out. I encourage them to believe, trust and cultivate their healing abilities and show that there are many other alternatives to falling victim to chronic stress or the vicious circle of fighting and arguing. Anxiety can be very depleting, both physically and mentally. To assist with these negative feelings, I have curated a beautiful office with an adjacent yoga space to facilitate the healing process. Through our interactions, my clients learn to free up energy trapped in chronic stress, unhealthy relationships, or patterns of overthinking and transform it into a sense of liveliness and creativity to use at work, school, and with loved ones.
Lastly, as an immigrant, I am genuinely attuned to different cultures and belief systems. In my practice, I strive for an open heart and non-judgemental view. I offer my services in English and Spanish and provide telehealth and in-person therapy to individuals and couples.
Please be well, safe and healthy.
