About

I am Rashid Thigpen, MSW-LP, a Clinical Associate and Teen Group Facilitator at Orchard Blue Counseling Services. I received my BA in Psychology from Queens College and a Masters of Social Work degree from Adelphi University. My client focus is adolescence and teens of Black/African-American, Latin-X, and diverse ethnic backgrounds. I specialize in working with teenagers and young adults in High School and College in both individual and group therapy with use of integrated modalities involving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Trauma support.
Personally, I knew I wanted to become a social worker when I began working within the Education system. I was reminded of how important it was to see yourself in any environment, especially school. As an adolescent, I had very few teachers who I felt I could rely on. As I began working with high school students, I knew I wanted to give back.
My goal is to give my clients a safe therapeutic space robe heard, and a space where they can fully be their authentic selves, free from judgment.
