Karen Mruk, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Do you feel that the enthusiasm and excitement you once felt for your career or significant other is no longer in the forefront? Are you fantasizing of ways to reinvent yourself so you can feel good again about what you do everyday at work? Can you remember when you last felt passionate about your work or interpersonal relationships? If you've answered yes to any of these questions you may be feeling depressed and anxious. In our work together we can look at these questions and find solutions to the confusion you may be feeling with the goal of getting your life back on track.
I work with patients in both short-and long-term therapy. I have an active and dynamic style that reflects my unique life experiences and I believe in integrating a therapeutic approach that's right for you in a safe, empathic environment.
As a former actor in New York and a member of SAG and Equity for over 15 years I have devoted a part of my practice to working with creative and perfoming artists. I understand you face unique challenges and look forward to finding solutions that work for you.
